Travel with Hawthorn Travel & Cruise
We are passionate about travel, we love what we do, we have been doing it for a long time and we believe we are good at it. Our business is reliant of repeat and recommendations and that comes from happy customers.
Remember, “without a travel agent you are on your own”. From the planning stages to the final production of your itinerary, your trip is handled by some of the best planners in the business.
See below about the different types of travel we can organise (leisure, flights, cruises, corporate, groups, etc.) and contact us today for more advice.
Places, faces, experiences and more. We like to know what makes our clients smile and we build an itinerary around your wish-list, adding ideas and features that can make a great trip into a trip of a lifetime.
Too often holidays are done at a high speed; let us show you the world at a pace that is more in tune with thought and contemplation.
For us, travel is the start & finish and doing everything in-between.
The airlines have gone full circle with airfares, embracing new technology and making on-line bookings for straight forward itineraries that are relatively simple. However booking engines have assumed price as the most important factor in choosing an airline. Airlines once again depend on agents and now offer selected agents airfares that are not available on the internet.
It is our role to offer you value, by considering most direct, most convenient, most regular, best value and of course the most comfortable at the best cost we can.
Australians liking of the cruising has seen many clients fly & cruise. It has been so popular that we have two consultants who are highly accredited ICCA “Cruise Masters”, a qualification that has over 40 hours of training and the course in finished overseas.
The “Cruise Finder” button below is a link to a great reference tool whenever you need to know what is happening. This link includes some great deals not made available to the general travel trade. Also, ask us to receive quaterly an edition of the “From the Bridge” magazine to keep up-to-date with some of the latest cruise features.
With the high pressure of business today, our dedicated travel planners can save you the time, lessen stress and save you money. Whether it is taking advantage of advance purchase conditions, or paying a little more for flexibility, let us assist you to develop a travel strategy. Talk to us, not a faceless booking engine. We get to know our clients and what’s important to them.

There is a saying in the travel industry, “If you can’t afford travel insurance, you cannot afford to travel”. Whilst it’s nice to have the bits & pieces in your luggage covered and the odd Doctor’s bill for a tummy upset, you are really taking insurance to cover you in case of a disaster. You know “The one that will never happen to me!”. We have worked with ‘Aussie’ travel insurance for many years and have found them to be service orientated, competitive and the most important thing, fair in paying out claims. It is important that you understand your insurance policy so contact one of our consultants if you are unsure about anything.
