“Thanks Charmaine you’re an absolute star – we’re not sure how we would cope without you”

As soon as we start thinking about overseas holidays we engage Charmaine Hawke, we tell her what sort of a holiday we’re thinking about and sometimes we’ll even tell her where we’re thinking about going. The great thing is, she knows us pretty well by now so she already knows our likes and dislikes. Charmaine does all the hard work, she figures out the best airfares, the best cruises, the best hotels, itineraries, travel insurance and add on’s like day excursions. By engaging Charmaine we have taken the guess work out of our travel plans and everything runs smoothly from the time we catch our taxi to the airport to the time that we arrive back home.
