Must read

Three luxury travel agencies have confirmed they will join the Luxury Travel Collection from 1 July, 2024.

The new members will bring the portfolio of independent brands to 11 in total, in addition to the foundation brand, Travel Associates.

The three new boutique luxury businesses to become members of Luxury Travel Collection are: Complete Travel Services and World Wide Travel, both based in Melbourne; and Luxury Cruise Escapes, based in Noosa. 

“We could not be happier to welcome three extraordinary luxury leaders into our house, and into our family,” said Danielle Galloway, Global Managing Director of Luxury and Independent Brands FCTG.

“The strength of our famous foundation brand, Travel Associates, with 60 businesses throughout Australia and NZ, plus the growing independent portfolio of boutique businesses that are now members is such a wonderful indication of the quality of our luxury travel house.”

World Wide Travel’s Simone Kaye is looking forward to the start of trading on 1 July.

“The Luxury Travel Collection is the perfect fit for my business. The completeness of the offer that is available, and its absolute dedication to elevating luxury travel in Australia is what really attracted me. There’s no other business that can deliver such a tailored luxury house for a unique business like mine,” she said.

“Every one of our members has been personally invited to join this group of distinctive brands and each one is individually well known for their luxury credentials – it’s an important unifying value for LTC,” said General Manager, Member Portfolio, Nikki Glading.

“Alison Lee (Complete Travel Services), Simone Kaye (World Wide Travel) and Betty Croft (Luxury Cruise Escapes) are so well established in the Australian market and known for the high level of service and expertise delivered to clients, they will fit in perfectly with our foundation members and bring our group to 11 for the start of the new financial year,” said Glading. 

Membership of the Luxury Travel Collection is by personal invitation, based on shared values and placing the customer at the centre of its business, the group says. 

“We are incredibly passionate about the strength of the partnerships we are establishing. It’s a clear demonstration that we have a real differential in the Australian market with the breadth of our product selection, our holistic offering of support services and our approach to delivering luxury with fresh thinking,” added Danielle Galloway. 

The Luxury Travel Collection recently hosted its first Business Owners Soireé on Hayman Island for more than 100 business owners, managers, supplier partners and LTC executives.
