"Travel is the only thing you “Buy” that makes you “Richer”."

Born in Cape Town, grew up in Australia, married to an Argentinean / Italian… something tells me I was destined for the travel industry with this many continents covered! As a mother of one, I have travelled extensively and simply love the adventure and anticipation that travelling offers. 

My Travel Career

Beginning my Travel Career in 1992; with Concorde Travel in Consolidation where I had various job roles. (Also where I met Chris). In 1998, an opportunity became available to launch a new rail company in the Australian market. Rail Tickets was established as a Sales Agent for Rail Europe (based in France) and I was Product Manager for almost 10 years. It was here that I realised my passion for travel in Europe. I joined Emerald Travel in early 2007, and although I came from a Wholesale background, I absolutely love working as a part of the Emerald Travel team in a retail environment.

"As everyone will have no doubt heard or read, travelling overseas in 2020 has been difficult to say the least. Unfortunately we went through every ex-pat's worst nightmare, news came through of a critically ill relative in Ireland, and I was forced to make the difficult decision to leave my wife and kids in Australia during the peak of Melbourne's second wave in August. The level of customer service and attention to detail shown by Chris at Emerald Travel in booking the trip was not only excellent, her work has had a profound positive impact on all our family, both here and in Ireland, and will stay with us forever. We will forever be indebted to Chris, and we look forward to booking all our future trips home with Emerald Travel. Go raibh míle, míle maith agat!"

“Having been recommended Chris and the team at Emerald Travel by a friend, I used them recently to arrange an emergency trip back to the UK. Rules were changing on a daily basis but even during this very stressful time, Chris managed to ensure that I got to the UK and and back again, even when it looked impossible.  I highly recommend Emerald Travel and will definitely use again! Thanks Chris!”

"The beauty of the Emerald Isle and it's people will stay with me forever. Just a note to thank all the team at Emerald Travel and Tourism Ireland for helping to make our journey to Ireland so magical. It really was a trip of a lifetime. The beauty of the Emerald Isle and it's people will stay with me forever. From the history and charm that Dublin had to share and the quaint magic of Kildare, to the breathtaking scenery of the Wild Atlantic Way, there was so much beauty at every turn, I am already looking forward to my return."

"Outstanding service for group travel. We have used Emerald Travel on numerous occasions for our work conferences.  Whether it be international or domestic the service from Emerald Travel and Debbie in particular has been flawless.  Their knowledge and recommendations of the places we have travelled to has been excellent.  Organising 30 + people is not an easy task and Debbie and Chris have always been so patient and happy to make changes and accommodate us whenever needed. Our staff love receiving their personalised travel wallets from Emerald Travel, organising us right down to the little suitcase address tags."
