To work in travel you must have a passion for travel, and I believe my passion for travel will give you the ultimate holiday experience.
Whether you’re a seasoned traveller or this is your first holiday, whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway for two, a family holiday, an all-inclusive cruise or a trip around the world, I will help you fulfil your holiday dreams. From the first initial contact, while you’re away, right through to you returning from your trip, I will always just be a phone call away, and upon returning I can’t wait to hear all about your adventures.
As a mum to three beautiful children, we have had many great family holidays, from snorkelling in Vanuatu, climbing the Great Wall of China and watching the sunset from Tanah Lot in Bali. A trip to Hong Kong and of course we couldn’t miss Disneyland. A week in Hawaii, and riding elephants in Thailand, my kids are always planning our next holiday destination as soon as we return. Our most recent holiday was an amazing three weeks in the USA. Las Vegas, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, from seeing the Grand Canyon to riding across the Golden Gate Bridge so many family holiday memories were made.
A more recent educational trip had me flying to New York for four days. What an amazing jam packed four days we had. It was such a surreal feeling sailing by the Statue of Liberty, and being ridden by rickshaw around Central Park. I will definitely be back.
This last year has seen me complete many ship inspections with various cruise lines as well as complete my specialist training with Princess Cruises. If you have any cruise questions at all, don't hesitate to ask.
I can promise you, you will never be treated as just a number, booking your dream holiday is as special to me as it is to you. I will treat your holiday as if I am the one travelling, and take all options into consideration.
As a Travel Counsellor, we are not restricted by your normal 9am – 5pm business hours so I am available to assist you at a time and place convenient to you. What are you waiting for, pick up the phone and let me start helping you make your holiday dreams a reality

Incredible service. Clare was ready and able to answer any and all of my questions at any time of the day or night, including weekends. I will definitely recommend her to anyone that I know that would like to travel. She came up with very competitive results and I booked within two days of contacting Clare. Thank you Clare, you were awesome!

Clare has been absolutely amazing. The quality of service she has provided has been more than any other travel agent has ever provided to us. She listen to us and provided us with many different options until we were completely satisfied. Her attention to detail was excellent. She was alway available to talk to, her communications skills have been excellent and she is brilliant. We are very happy with the service she has provide and we will recommend her to all my friends and family.

Can not recommend Clare high enough. Everything was perfect for our first real family holiday in 14 yrs. Our first trip to Queensland. She organised EVERYTHING. From finding the best deals with flights, amazing accommodation, theme parks and car hire. Answered all questions and even helped organise transfers to and from the airport and flights when my partner had to go Sydney for a funeral in the middle of our holiday. Thank you so much Clare. We have had the best time up here and we did very little work xoxo

Clare Johnstone was fantastic. I gave her some basic information and a lean budget to work with and she was able to come back with a variety of trip ideas and good advice on each. I booked my trip to Vanuatu and am very excited at going based on her suggestions. Clares follow up has also been great - still giving me ideas on what I can do over there, sending through things like passport applications and the little congratulations card with the confetti was a great touch. Highly recommended :)

I was lucky enough to win a 4 day 3 nights trip to Abu Dhabi with Abu Dhabi Tourism and Etihad Airways. We departed Melbourne on Etihad’s A380 for our 3.5 hour flight to Abu Dhabi. A fantastic aircraft with a lot of space. We were lucky enough to have a whole row to ourselves which meant we could get some sleep. Service was great meals were served in the first hour so everyone could get some sleep. Cabin crew came around every few hours offering snacks and drinks before having breakfast an hour before arrival. Arrival in Abu Dhabi was...

A short trip to New York with so much to see. In a city that never sleeps and so much to see and do you need to plan out your must sees to make the most of your time. A ferry to The Statue of Liberty is a must, with the option of getting off and exploring Liberty Island and getting up close to Miss Liberty herself or taking an audio tour of Ellis Island and learning about the early immigrants to the East Coast of USA. Then head on over to the Brooklyn Bridge, you can either walk all the way...
