Alisha Lockie

Lovely to meet you

I have travelled to over 40 countries and I am always plotting what's next - however, the more places I experience, the longer the longer the list gets! I love the anticipation of a new adventure and learning as much as I can from every new journey. I am a self-described travel enthusiast, so being able to talk travel every day and share my passion for travel is a dream come true. I love helping people realize their travel dreams and being able to live vicariously through experiences. 

Getting to know my clients and learning what's important to them is something I really enjoy, and helps when creating an itinerary that's is as unique and as special as the traveler.

There is nothing more satisfying to me than a client popping in after their journey with tales to tell of the adventures they've had. I love hearing peoples stories and experiences as every experience is so different - there is no universal truth or one size fits all option when it comes to travel!

For me travel is inspiring and transformative - it allows you to learn more about the world around you, and in the process, more about yourself.

What my customers have to say

  • We were helped by Alisha from Ferrymead Christchurch office and once again she has looked after us very well. The quality of service is second to none. We have used a number of travel agents and no one can match the service from this office and of course this agent. She is very calm and thorough without putting us under any pressure. She would be a great model to set as the perfect agent.
  • This is the second time I have booked my flights with Alisha and both times they have been better than I could have done through various online websites. Alisha is very helpful and competent in her role and I am very happy to use her in future.
  • Alisha has gone over and above to make sure our trip was hassle free. From the start to the end everything has run like clockwork. We are very pleased and would recommend Alisha and House of Travel to anyone.

My travel stories

Postcard from Norway

An exploration of the Njords of Norway, Svalbard and Spitsbergen.

I recently returned from exploring the Fjords of Norway, and a small ship expedition of Svalbard and Spitsbergen with Quark Expeditions. 

Highlights included a full circumnavigation of Spitsbergen, sightings of 13 polar bears, plentiful walrus encounters, braving the artic waters during the polar plunge and viewing pristine glaciers that stretched as far as the eye could see...
