Kelly-Ann Patterson

Lovely to meet you

I'm seen as a great relationship builder who is passionate about people and their travel adventures. I've travelled extensively both on my own and with my two teenage boys. Rarely go to any place twice as there's too much of the world to see. 

I don't have a specific favourite destination as it's all about new frontiers for me and stepping outside of my comfort zone. 

I've been in the industry for 20+ years including 5 years working for Air New Zealand where I gained a wealth of knowledge which I'm finding invaluable in the complex world of airfares post COVID.

    WOW! Blew me away, stunning city and lets not forget that it boasts one of the most beautiful wine regions in the world - The Barossa Valley. Incredible place to visit and if you plan your trip around the Fringe festival then you are in for a real treat!

  • Alaska

    Visiting Alaska was a dream come true. Incredible beauty, wildlife, seeing the northern lights was spectacular. Huskies, bears, salmon and hot dogs just a few of my highlights. I cannot wait to go back one day.

What my customers have to say

  • Kelly-Ann is super friendly and easy to communicate with. I never had an issue, and doubt I ever will. Kelly-Ann is a professional at what she does, always going above and beyond to make it simple for me and my friends to travel the world. Past experiences have been tremendous, and I'm sure they will be excellent in the future as well. Thanks again for all the help - Thailand, here we come!
  • I'd like to thank Kelly-Ann from HOT. She was amazing, travelling in these covid times. Kelly-Ann helped us out every step of the way. Our flights changed while we were overseas, I didn't need to worry Kelly-Ann was onto it. I can highly recommend HOT and if you are lucky enough to have Kelly-Ann as your agent you are in great hands.
