Over the years Bairnsdale Travel and Cruise has been known by other names but since 1964, 3 generations of the same family has been helping locals explore the world. In the 70’s Lee, Olive, Bob & Mavis Kenworthy relied on 2 airlines to send people around Australia and the reservations were all done over the phone and telex whilst the tickets were hand written. In the 80’s computers were introduced (which cost more than a car back then & not much smaller!) so the efficiency of the industry improved and it enabled clients to venture further across the world with more local knowledge.
By the late 80’s Veronica joined the team and tickets were issued by printers, again improving efficiency. The late 90’s introduced us to the internet which was going to be the demise of travel agents but we used it to our advantage yet again to enable our clients to learn more about their destination before they went.
This century travellers have researched more on their destination , read more reviews, consulted with other travellers and are generally more knowledgeable than ever before. That’s fine but as a Consultant my job is to ask the right questions to understand your decisions to ensure that the choices you make suit you- not others.
The business is a member of the Bairnsdale Chamber of Commerce and their Shop Bairnsdale Gift card promotion. Bairnsdale Travel and Cruise is also a proud sponsor of the Bruthen and Paynesville Bowls Clubs and the Major Sponsor of the Rotary Club of Mitchell Rivers annual Dinner Auction.The office has moved back to where it all began at 210 Main Street in the arcade behind Stows Newsagency. Each traveller is unique and now two holiday itineraries are the same for that reason. Its my pleasure to consult with each client to understand their needs and travel dreams then convert it into a cohesive plan that makes enjoying the moment of their holiday that much easier.
I operate as a consultant not a business so I take the time to interpret your dreams and convert them into travel plans that suit your needs and budget. My job is to help you create new travel memories
