Our product and services offer travel and tours to anywhere in the world. The company is very well known and highly regarded on the international stage and enjoys an excellent brand exposure. Reservations are then made by us. Unlike many businesses, revenue is excellent with very low overheads.

It is unique in the travel industry, and this is a rare opportunity that a very well known, and respected travel wholesale company is offering this opportunity, for a person/couple or business to get a foot in the door into the unique world. Can also be known in this context as an inbound travel company and outbound travel company. If you enjoy travel then this is the perfect business.

We must emphasise this is not a franchise operation as the buyer will be buying all the product and services for the Australian region, intellectual property, the intangible assets that is the brand, contracts, contacts, brochures designs, website, and everything to do with the business relevant to the Australian region. Our company in New Zealand will supply all the product and services required

Setting up a travel wholesale company is about being accepted within the industry as a wholesale travel company, and as such our main task was to create our brand acceptance worldwide. The business has that acceptance. This process takes around a decade to achieve. We attend trade shows throughout the world. We are now in the enviable position where we are invited and hosted to many of these shows in many countries, including Asia, Europe, Africa, The Pacific (North and South) and Oceania which includes Australia and New Zealand.

We have an excellent relationship and rapport with the various tourism bureaus, products and services throughout the world and work very closely with them. We have close relationships with on-ground and inbound companies in many countries. Our business is about trust and offering the best service available. With 45 years experience, when you join with us as the Australian business you will be in very good hands.

There is still much to do and accomplish as the business is always ongoing taking in new products and countries and keeping up with technology. The website is only the shop front and not the main way in which we create business. (this will be taught to you) The content on the site is really only a very small amount of products and service we have access to as this runs into many thousands from many countries.

We are well known for being able to source product and services for any type of travel. There are a number of initiatives in place, ready to expand and create as much business as desired. This will be discussed with the new owners. The travel wholesale side of our industry is the most interesting. Our role is finding and supplying product, tours and services throughout the countries we work with and then to make the reservations for the retail travel agencies or our own specialist network. It makes for a very interesting, and unique lifestyle together with travel overseas.

The price for the Australian business is $95,000.
Training, and full support will be part of this package, together with the product and services from countries around the world, the ***.co.au website which will mirror our main site, designs for brochures both online and printed, product and services contacts, reservations by us for the first year (longer if required) plus, plus, plus. All these things will be discussed with potential interested people.

Our main aim is to make you successful. If you are not familiar with the wholesale side of the travel industry we will teach you at your pace. You do not have to be from the tourism industry as we will teach you and be with you every step of the way. The industry is a very exciting one to be in and for those people with a passion and enjoy social aspects of life, together with travel it is the ideal business. For a potential buyer to fully appreciate our company we would welcome an opportunity to have an informal chat to outline what we are all about. Both Penny and I look forward to that opportunity. Get in touch, We are worth talking with! should you want to learn more I will send you our business plan together with projected figures for the next 3 years on what profit should be in the Australian market.

The pros:
• We will be with you all the way through the initial training. It does not matter if you have not been in the travel industry prior as we will teach you everything about the industry. A visit to Australia by us would be at our expense and if you come to NZ, at your expense.
