About us

TravelManagers is part of the House of Travel family, the largest independent travel company in Australasia.

Founder and chair, Chris Paulson had a vision in 2005 and the company set its sights on building Australia’s premium home-based travel network.

The internet and related technology, together with 24/7 remote access and centralised systems paved the way for people to work at home. And the future of travel consulting without a traditional retail shop was born. Just like in the banking industry, you think ‘personal banker or mortgage broker’, or in the fitness industry you think ‘personal trainer’, the future for travel is a ‘personal travel manager’.

Today, our national network of over 550 home-based and mobile personal travel managers create bespoke experiences. Clients see the real benefits of personalised and convenient service, with all the technology and back office systems that a ‘traditional’ retail agent provides.

More than ever, clients are looking for security and someone they can call on if the need arises during their travels.
