Bridge Travels – Holidays to Australia, New Zealand & the World
Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific offer visitors a wide array of holiday choices. Marvel at Australia’s sun-scorched Outback red earth before heading to the sparkling azure waters of the Great Barrier Reef. Explore New Zealand with its geo thermal wonderlands, unique glaciers and panoramic vistas. Relax in the turquoise clear waters of the South Pacific and find your own piece of paradise. Choosing where to go, how to get there, and what to do can seem a daunting task.
If you are planning a holiday to Australia or self-drive itinerary around New Zealand, please contact me. I’m Jerry Bridge, a seasoned world traveller and entrepreneur. My advice about where to travel and what to do when you get there is based on over thirty years experience. Your holiday booking will be dealt with by myself and my team of knowledgeable travel consultants. Itineraries are tailored according to your time, budget and interests.
Bridge Travels offer you holidays with a strong emphasis on luxury and adventure. We recommend experiences that highlight the best of Australia’s great walks, rail journeys, golf courses and vineyards. Our accommodation recommendations range from the many wonderful owner-run luxury lodges of Australia to charming country retreats and boutique hotels.
So, even if you’re travelling off the beaten track, I guarantee you will never have to compromise on either comfort or cuisine.
Bridge Travel History
Bridge Travels also tells the story of the Bridge family and its involvement in the travel industry since 1949. To learn more about our background and history check each of the Bridge businesses, listed on the right here. ‘75 years Travel Experience’ is not a strap line conjured up out of nowhere!
The original Bridge Travel was founded by my father in 1949 a year or two after the Second World War. He was one of the UK’s earliest pioneers of European package holidays. Bridge the World was my first travel enterprise covering discounted flights to all parts of the world. Bridge & Wickers, on the other hand, focussed on tailor-made holidays to Australia, New Zealand and Canada.
I think you will find the ‘behind-the-scenes’ tour of when these companies were established and how they developed most interesting. I also strongly recommend viewing my father’s video about how he ‘made it’. The video extends beyond pure travel entrepreneurialism. You will also find it fascinating from a social and cultural point of view.
New Zealand Vacations is a specialist travel company selling self-drive itineraries and tailor-made holidays around New Zealand. Our clients predominantly live in North America and Canada. Australia-Vacations has more recently been launched and focusses on tailor-made itineraries around Australia as well as short-stay packages for thos with less time on their hands.
What to do in Wellington offers visitors a unique day tour of Wellington as well as top advice about what to do in New Zealand. If you are an intrepid adventurer, live in the UK or Europe and in need of good comprehensive insurance cover please contact The True Traveller Travel Insurance company in London.
Other businesses I have highlighted are enterprises family and friends have set up. These vary from a 15th Century hotel, L’Abbaye-Château de Camon, in the South of France to The Town Mouse restaurant and Embla wine bar in Melbourne. Let me know if you are visiting any of them and I will ensure you receive a very good deal!
