About Andrea Friend

I was born and raised in England and looked forward to my 2 annual overseas trips every year.  I trusted and respected the advice and commitment from my travel agent over the years, and we built an excellent relationship.

After moving to Australia in 2005 I wanted to commit to a career around my passion, TRAVEL.  I have been fortunate to follow my dreams and work in retail travel where I have gained a vast amount of knowledge that I love to share.

Having joined forces with Travel Managers and becoming a Personal Travel Manager I can focus on building a relationship with my clients to ensure that their dream holiday becomes a reality at a time and place that suits my clients.

    When thinking about travel agents (and I have had dealings with many over the years) I have to say that I don't think that they come any better than Andrea. She has the winning combination of:-1) Incredible knowledge of the travel destinations of the world and the travel operators to use to access them.2) Amazing attention to detail.3) A real drive to secure the best deals and experiences for her clients.Andrea really delivers for us and I could not contemplate booking our travels with any one else!

    We trust Andrea to always give us the best advice for whatever trip we have planned. She always give us extra tips on what to do or what would be the best way of doing things. Then while we are away if there is a problem we know we can contact her to help us. Plus Andrea has great travel knowledge of what is happening in the travel industry. We always feel completely  at ease when we travel knowing that Andrea has done an absolute fantastic job of getting what we want. Love contacting her when we decide to go travel and getting her ideas and our ideas into out perfect holiday.

    I have been working with Andrea for many years. I book everything thru her. It makes everything so easy. Having to cancel and reschedule trip after trip with covid should have been stressful. But Andrea handled it all, such a relief for us.Now we are opened up again we have 5 trips organised with Andrea. Would never use anybody else. I can’t recommend her highly enough. Not just a great travel agent but a beautiful person as well.Rhonda Giordmaina
