What our customers have to say

  • The whole process and recommendations from Lisa made our special holiday even more special knowing everything had been organised to our expectations. Cannot recommend enough. Will definitely book through you for my next holiday. Thank you.
    Allison
  • She was always very friendly and very helpful. She took on our every request without making me feel like I was being a difficult client.
    Angelique
  • My now wife and I have been very fortunate to have met Lisa 13 years ago for our first trip of four to Rarotonga all under the guidance of Lisa Crawford and all travel and recommendations have been organized to perfection. After 13 years of an amazing relationship my now wife and I made the commitment to elope to Vegas and get married. The trip entailed Anaheim Disneyland plus a Baseball game followed by Vegas to be married at the White Chapel and a Helicopter trip to the Grand Canyon. We finished up our trip in Hawaii for our Honeymoon at Ko Olina. Our lovely Lisa organised everything from head to toe with not one hiccup of any sorts. House of travel is very fortunate to have Lisa Crawford in their team and we are going to travel a lot in the near future only using Lisa as our Agent.

  • Lisa was fantastic to work with. She left no stone unturned. We are very grateful.
    Melissa
  • Aurelie was prompt and thorough with her correspondence to us. We were surprised at the amount of detail she provided and was patient with us while we changed our itinerary. She provided a few accommodation options for us to choose from. She booked our flights both regional and international which was something we didn't expect. She told us about the HOT app and provided all the info we would require to track our holiday bookings. Thanks to Aurelie for a smooth transition in securing our holiday.

  • Dealt with Carol but she was very helpful despite me changing plans multiple times. No change was an issue and always communicated things well, replying to my emails at very late hours to get things over the line.
    Justin S
  • We are just back from the cruise and all three of us had the best time!! Thank you for all your work in booking it for us and making sure everything was done! Make sure if you ever get the chance to go on a Disney cruise that you go, it’s an experience for adults and children!! I asked Alfie what his favourite part was and he just replied everything but he did really enjoy the royal knight transformation and meeting Donald Duck!! We will definitely get in touch with Carol for our next holiday, we have big plans to go to Disneyland in a few years time!!
    Megan A
  • It was Carol that organised our trip. She was 10 out of 10 for everything.

    4 wheels or 2? Here's one of the best destinations to explore using a scooter!

    When you think Italy you probably think Ferrari. Well, we think you should choose... Vespa! Italy is home to one of the most historically beautiful countries and monuments in the world. Flying by in your Ferrari won't let you enjoy the views. Slow down and take it in with a 2-wheeled wonder. The urban streets filled with culture and the Italian countryside, either of which are perfectly suited for the iconic moped and is definitely a must-do on your bucket list.
