Stephanie Towers

Lovely to meet you

Having been born into an aviation family, I was always destined to become a passionate traveller, and have a lifelong fascination for aviation, airports, and exploring new destinations. 

Travel is in my blood, and my love for my job shines through, going above and beyond for my clients to ensure their needs are met with warmth, kindness, and an attentive ear. 

With a diverse background in the travel industry, my vast experience started with corporate travel for blue chip New Zealand companies, followed by a never-ending OE in London and Sydney in the Music & Film industry looking after global superstars and celebrities. Now back home in the Bay, I’m helping travellers with their holidays, corporate customers heading away for business, and specialising in group travel - whether travelling for sports, education, weddings, conferences, or events. I’m experienced in catering to a wide range of travel preferences and needs.

Whether you're planning a budget-friendly adventure or a luxurious getaway, I’ve tried it all, from economy to first class, I’ve even chartered private jets! I have great first-hand knowledge and I’m eager to share it with you to create a trip full of unforgettable experiences for you.


My favourite holiday memories

  • Egypt
    Egypt Stephanie Towers

    Wow wow wow!! Christmas Day at the Pyramids, whilst enjoying the extensive Egyptian group tour was a fantastic way to start one of the greatest trips in my lifetime. Being the last remaining of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world, it was very surreal. 

  • Japan
    Japan Stephanie Towers

    One of the most fascinating countries, my love for Japan only grew after my student exchange back in the 90's. Whilst Tokyo is intense with bright lights, the unique culture, plus being a foodie makes it a special place to explore. Over the cherry blossom festival, it is the perfect time to visit.

  • London
    London Stephanie Towers

    The best city in the world. London has it all. Having gone in my OE for 2 years and finally returning 12 years later, this is the city that caters for everyone 24/7. From Sunday roasts to High teas, you can always guarantee a good chat in the corner pub too. 

  • USA
    Disneyland  Stephanie Towers

    The magic of Disney never ends, it really is the happiest place on earth. You are never too old to experience. My favourite resort being Disneyland California, followed by Tokyo and Paris, plus there are many Disney resorts worldwide. 

  • Fiji

    Exploring the Yasawa Islands of Fiji, with it's stunning turquoise waters, endless sunshine and friendly villagers at each resort, makes for a relaxing holiday paradise. Island hop or unpack and relax - a week away will feel like a lifetime.

My Travel Passions

Luxury Travel - I have a wealth of knowledge and expertise, following my high profile career in the Entertainment Industry (Music & Film) in London and Sydney. I love to keep up with what's HOT and new in the world of Luxury travel. With strong attention to detail, every dollar spent will be invested into your perfect holiday, be it on a unique remote island or onboard a heavenly ship.

Events Travel - I love the rush and joy of planning travel to live Music concerts, festivals, and events. Along with Sports travel - from touring with the All Blacks, experiencing the London Olympics,  attending to the British F1 race - arriving by helicopter, attending the Wimbledon & Australian Open Men's Finals, Cricket World Cup Final, I've been there done that and you can too...

Solo travel - Giving support and guidance and then seeing my Traveler's confidence grow, as they explore the world, returning home with amazing stories and new fond friendships, this brings me great joy.  Bring your ideas and together, we'll make it happen...

What my customers have to say

  • our travel agent Steph was amazing! She was always quick to respond to our questions, had great communication, was flexible to make changes to flights when we were worried about early morning fog potentially delaying our flight from Hawkes Bay to Auckland (we didn't want to miss our international flight). She often went the extra mile, helping us with korean visas, travel advice for flights etc. Highly recommend House of Travel and especially Steph!
  • Outstanding consultant. Stephanie knows exactly how we like to travel and makes it happen with ease. I only have to pay the invoice! Always available and quick to respond. Stephanie has excellent product knowledge that is often not seen in other consultants we have used in the past. We appreciate Stephanie's expertise. Thank you Stephanie.
  • It was our first time using a travel agency and will 100% be booking with Stephanie at House of Travel again! The whole process was made so much easier with her organizing and sending us any information that we needed to know, most of which hadn't crossed our minds. She was available whenever we had any questions and helped us when our luggage was left behind at the airport. So good at her job!
