Myself – Jerry Bridge and my team at World Travel with Bridge offer pre and post-booking ‘no-nonsense’ travel advice to anyone planning or researching their holiday to Australia or New Zealand. That’s right, you should know that your first point of contact will be with Jerry Bridge, which means you will be communicating with the ‘boss’ or as some people call me, the ‘Travelman’! All I need from you is a rough idea of how much time you have, what your interests are and how much you want to spend. It also helps if I know whether you have been before and lastly, what time of year you would like to travel.
It doesn’t matter whether you are a budget-conscious backpacker or a discerning traveller seeking the ultimate in luxury experiences. Young, old, adrenalin junkie, culture vulture or serenity seeker – it makes no difference. We have all the industry know-how, a multitude of personal connections and first-hand experience to take you through those potentially headache-inducing early booking stages, painlessly.
For many of us the thought of holiday and travel planning has the ability to induce mild panic. We all know we are about to embark on a task which has the capacity to frustrate, stress, irritate, overwhelm and bewilder in turn and potentially bring on a headache the size of the moon! At best we lose hour upon hour in trawling the internet, comparing and hunting down the best deals we can for our envisaged budget. At worst we do all that and then, still end up booking something we never intended just to be done with it. There’s probably always been a part of you which has known there must be an easier way and you’d be right, the easy way is World Travel with Bridge!
Once we have decided on your best holiday options (usually via email although I can be contacted by phone) I will ensure everything is booked for you in line with your budget. I have personal contacts with the suppliers and tour operator partners I recommend and can guarantee that you will save both time and money during the process.
It’s important to note that I work alongside the operators I recommend and am here to assist you right up to your departure. I am happy to suggest the best restaurants, cafes and day tours in most of the major destinations you will be visiting. I don’t know about you but I think that’s pretty darn useful! On top of that, once you have made your booking there are a number of additional benefits for you to take advantage of. You can view them on the Australia & New Zealand destination pages of this website.
It may surprise you to know that we also assist some of the best holiday companies in Australia and New Zealand on the marketing front. We provide them with travel articles, social media activity and ‘ambassadorial style’ 24/7 PR. Brands include the following – Quicksilver Cruises, Luxury Lodges of Australia, Huka Retreats, Boutique Hotels and Lodges of New Zealand, Sydney BridgeClimb and many more…
This fact alone gives us a particularly different kind of ‘authority’ on the numerous holiday experiences you can have within both Australia and New Zealand. Please feel free to check our ‘Destination’ pages to get some inspired ideas and suggestions on where to go and what do to before contacting me.
A word about some of our preferred UK tour operators
Award Winning Operators
All our travel partners are pleased to offer you unbeatable levels of award winning service and outstanding value when you make your booking. Whether you are interested in a New Zealand luxury lodge experience, a wine tasting tour or an Outback experience you’ll never forget, start the actual booking process of your holiday already armed with an itinerary you feel comfortable with. Our UK operators offer clients 100% financial security as they are bonded with ATOL licenses (issued by the CAA) and are registered with ABTA (the Association of British Travel Agents).
Whatever your budget we believe our recommended tour operators are able to offer the very best deals for all your travel arrangements. The travel consultant we link you up to will be happy to offer you all the best travel options. They are all well-travelled themselves and will back up their knowledge with a full range of competitive prices.
Who can resist a bargain! When you book a tailor-made holiday ask whether there are any discounted rates, free hotel night options or value added packages as often they will have been negotiated on your behalf from our suppliers. These exclusive offers are generally only available when you book a comprehensive itinerary directly with a World Travel with Bridge preferred travel partner. Some of these special offers have to be booked within a few days of publication and may carry certain restrictions although these conditions are often a very small price to pay for an outstanding deal or discount.
