I began my career at Courtney World Travel 27 years ago working for the previous owner. I took over in September 2001 after 9/11. For the first 6 months I think I gave away more than I took due to people cancelling their holidays. Thank goodness people’s confidence grew and the travel industry bounced back. We are now a team of 7, have moved premises and continue to grow.
I absolutely love the travel industry, every day is different and I still get a buzz from helping clients build their dream trips. We work hard for those precious few weeks of time off each year, therefore your holiday should be created with care and attention and designed to suit you.

Travel Tip: If you are travelling with your partner – split the packing across the two suitcases. If your luggage goes missing you still have clothes to wear and a swim suit to put on.
