Meet the team

Some of my earliest memories as a child are travelling throughout NZ discovering new and exciting places. Ever since I have been curious to see what the world has to offer.

  • Excellent service from HOT, the only way to do a big trip overseas in my opinion! Peace of mind too should rescheduling be required!

  • Sam was amazing, as always. We asked him to help us with our trip given the uncertainties around travel at the moment and we're so pleased we did as even simple bookings became pretty challenging. We also appreciated the heads up on checking details on our travel insurance even though we hadn't purchased our policy through HoT. Would happily recommend getting HoT to help you plan your next trip :)

  • Going overseas with Covid 19 in every country is not for the faint hearted. However Josephine from Masterton made every step a positive one. Thank you for a stress free journey to the UK from NZ.

    ENGINE ISSUES CAUSE 2 YEAR DELAYS FOR AIR NEW ZEALAND

    In July this year, engine manufacturer Pratt and Whitney announced that 700 planes across the globe need to be inspected. Air New Zealand has 17 Airbus A320 and A321 NEO's which fly to Australia, Pacific Islands and other domestic routes need to be inspected. Chief executive Greg Foran said most customers are still likely to fly on the same day however, some international flights will move a day either side of their original booking date. A refund will be available to the 150,000 affected passengers if their changed service doesn't suit there itineraries. This will see the pause to direct flights from Auckland to Hobart and Seoul from April 2024.

    EXCITING INNOVATIONS TO THE WAY WE TRAVEL

    With the world reopening and travel is becoming more attractive than ever. Innovations are set in place to make the travelling experience so much better. Imagine not having to talk to anyone, show your passport to anyone, just a streamlined experience. Facial recognition systems, AI integration, robotic logistics, all to create a smooth and streamlined experience. We are also seeing hints of potential supersonic travel being re-introduced since Concorde's failure in the early 2000s. These exciting innovations are a matter of when, rather than if. Changi International Airport is taking these innovations and aiming to implement them in early 2024. Can we see the same for Auckland Airport? Definitely.

    QANTAS ALLOWS "NEIGHBOUR FREE" UPGRADE FROM NEW ZEALAND

    The Australian airline is now trialing a new feature which allows passengers flying on trans-Tasman flights alongside flights to the US and Singapore to purchase an empty seat next to them. The trial period is undisclosed, however, following an evaluation of the trial, more international routes may see this option become available. The way it works: Passenger's on eligible flights will receive a notification 2 days before departure offering this upgrade to "reserve" the seat next to them. As it's not guaranteed, if the seat is sold after "reserving," the passenger is refunded.
