Welcome to House of Travel Westport

Proudly locally owned and operated, House of Travel Westport has been operating in Buller for over 30 years, helping West Coasters with their dream holidays! 

Born and bred in Westport, Brydie took over House of Travel Westport in October 2021. She is currently working on her own yet offers you so much more than booking online.  With her love of travel, she is happy to take the time to chat with you about your plans – working together, with you. We pride ourselves on our great customer service and together with our knowledge and your research and ideas we can work together to make your travel dreams come true!

With the economic challenges COVID-19 has created, there hasn’t been a more important time for West Coasters to shop local and support local businesses.

We are a 100% Kiwi owned company and still very much part of the local community. We really appreciate your support as the world reopens.

From reconnecting on family resort holidays, to local weekend getaways, cruise escapes and that big UK Europe adventure, we’re here to help!

The best holidays are created together.

    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.

Postcard from Fiji

This was my third time visiting and every time I love it more! The first thing we did was a day trip out to Malamala Beach Club which I have now recommended to every client who has travelled to Fiji and they have all loved it just as much!
