About Binge on Travel

“A discerning palate pursuing the most luxurious experiences”

Lover of food, wine & luxury travel I have a discerning palate that has always been on the hunt for finding the most luxurious experiences - a desire to fulfil the taste-buds in stunning surroundings is my #1 'go to' for unwinding on a well-deserved holiday.

If not enjoying a glass of pinot in front of a roaring fire, or relaxing with a glass of rose in the afternoon sun; it is of no surprise to find me hiking the trails of National Parks; cycling through the backroads where English is a second language; connecting with the locals with a love of animals (ask me about Africa!) or immersing myself in the local eateries (literally a food coma)!

With 25+ years industry experience, travel to over 75 countries, I have been fortunate to seek out the most luxurious experiences both across the world and at home.  I may be biased, but do believe, New Zealand has to be the 'ultimate playground' for luxury travellers looking for unique and immersive “out of the ordinary” travel experiences. 


“My purpose is to connect luxury travellers with the best deals” 

My purpose is to connect luxury travellers with the best value luxury travel deals.  Delivering you with a flawless itinerary, individually designed with you in mind.  Born from the desire to deliver a service which would not come at an added cost to the consumer, there is no added fee to you for my services.

Reach out and we can make a time suitable to you to discuss your travel plans.


The Journey

What's in a Name

Since a teenager I have worked in the travel and tourism industry, both at home and aboard.


“Owned & Operated Retail Travel Stores”

With 25 years in retail travel, I grew to successfully own and operate four retail travel stores across New Zealand.  (House of Travel Ferrymead in Christchurch & House of Travel Papamoa, Mount Maunganui & The Crossing – Tauranga, Bay of Plenty) 


Leaving retail travel stores behind, Binge on Travel was born realising a dream to travel full time, work from multiple bases and to serve my clients one on one.  When you get in contact with Binge on Travel, you will be working exclusively with me. 


“Working Exclusively with me to create your personalised itinerary"


The advantage of being digital, my storefront is always open, while continuing to explore to be able to offer you first-hand knowledge and advice.


Binge on Travel was created from a love of ‘Food, Wine and Luxury Travel’. Key factors that play a big part in my own personal travel experiences;  I can speak from experience.  And even if food and wine isn’t high up your list, you may have discovered this site through your love of travel – let’s create a totally immersive and authentic travel experience for you!
