We’ve been selling (and travelling) the world for what seems like forever, having worked for over 20 years for large retail travel agencies and smaller niche wholesalers alike, both in Australia and abroad. You could say we were poster children for working holiday visas! Our years of working in the travel industry led us to the realisation that if you didn’t fit the norm of the mass traveller then the doors of some destinations felt closed to you. So we got thinking, how could we offer trips to those who didn’t quite match the brochure photo? We needed to break through the marketing stereotypes surrounding certain destinations, bump aside their 'typical' traveller and entice new types of travellers to these destinations. We wanted to enable people to share their interests & passions with others, whilst enjoying a new holiday destination, by offering themed, small group trips.
So we pooled our talents, our resources, our connections, our experience and most importantly our passion for travel and created Travel & Tonic. Travelling has always been our tonic, our remedy for the stresses that can creep in to our ‘everyday’ ... if your mind jumped straight to thinking our name was related to a Gin & Tonic well that’s fine by us too as many a brilliant plan has been conceived over a shared G&T somewhere in the world!
Our passions are often our tonic so combining them with a holiday is a perfect fit!
