Why work with me

I provide a Luxe Travel Planning and Curated Travel Service. Connecting the luxury traveller with the best value luxury travel experiences. 

Christine Hopkins - CEO
Fee Free Zone

I work with you but you only pay for the actual holiday*.  No fees are charged to you in addition for my services and you only start paying once you’re satisfied we have the desired itinerary ready to go. I will also go out of my way to book the ‘additional’ features for you including restaurants and events to make sure we have a seamless trip and one less thing for you to have to worry about. *(My business model is based on income received directly from suppliers). 

Bespoke Only

Creating no two trips the same – I work with you, one on one, to customise your itinerary.  Specials and offers loaded on the website are for inspiration and can be tailored to suit an individual or group to create something unique and exclusive to you.

Full of Ideas

The ‘norm’ doesn’t cut it. You’re looking for someone to bring you the ideas that you had not otherwise thought of.  Make suggestions on places to go, or activities to do that suit your desired travel adventure.  This is where I can come in with suggestions to consider and place recommendations I know you will enjoy and exceed your expectations.


From suppliers across New Zealand and overseas I have connections with locals who are ready to deliver on the finer details of your journey. 

From the very best travel guides offering unique and exclusive experiences to your very own private chef ready to design a tailored in-villa menu. 


With years of experience I can offer my expertise to give you sound knowledge and advice based on both my own experiences and that of many years of client testimonials.  

These personal recommendations make a difference to your journey as we leverage insider knowledge that is sincere and authentic. 


Not that you will be planning to get in touch while on your journey, however, should there be a need for support I am available to be contacted and provide assistance where required. 

Client Testimonials
" Chris has been sorting my travel for the past 10 years and we’ve always had an amazing time. This year she had an awesome holiday booked for us round Europe. I gave her my dates and the next day I had the most awesome itinerary. This will have to wait for next year but Chris made the cancellation process so easy giving us the best advise to maximise our refunds. At the moment Chris is working on some amazing domestic trips. One option being a luxury Fiordland lodge with heli skiing and some adventures in Queenstown. Looking forward to what Chris comes up with next!
Linda Murphy
"Thanks Chris for creating such a fabulous trip for our group. The attention to detail was bang on! Getting all our requests into one booking, I don’t’ know how you managed it. Everything went like clockwork and our private chef was amazing – everyone will be talking about that for ages to come! It really went beyond our expectations.
Sue Rutherford
"We have recently engaged Chris and her amazing travel company for a few holidays this year. Chris has proven to be super efficient, knowledgeable and very well connected in the luxury travel industry. Due to Covid we have had to postpone two trips we had booked through Chris. She managed to organise full refunds for the flights and accommodation for both trips ! She also went above and beyond and obtained a full refund for flights I had booked online for a third holiday. We have just returned from the most amazing time in Queenstown that we have ever had and this is all thanks to Chris. The accommodation was outstanding, all organised activities and food recommendations were also incredible. We will now always use Binge on Travel for any travel or holiday requirements we have. I will be recommending her to all friends and family and everyone I meet! You are a superstar Chris and thank you so much.
Nicole Kelly
" Chris was super informative and she knew exactly what we needed before we even explained all our requirements. Would definitely use Binge On Travel again... takes out the stress of all the internet searches and Chris got us the best price.
Matt Finch
"We recently used Chris from Binge on Travel to arrange our first family holiday to the Gold Coast. We highly recommend you get in touch if you are planning a trip. Nothing was a problem, and she guided us through everything we needed to know. We are so grateful for her help and will definitely be using her next time we plan a holiday. There were so many options but Chris was so knowledgeable it made it so much easier for us. She is so friendly and makes you feel so welcome as soon as you meet her. Thanks again. We are so grateful for your help.

" Chris has organised two holidays for me in the past 12 months. Both holidays were extremely well organised and Chris was extremely knowledgeable about both destinations and gave us some fabulous options to consider. The first holiday went ahead without a hitch and I even received a surprise birthday cake delivered to our door. Unfortunately the second holiday was cancelled due to Covid 19 however Chris has been absolutely amazing keeping us up to date with organising refunds of flights and accommodation etc. We so appreciate all the work she has done for us and can't wait to be able to rebook our holiday with Chris in hopefully the not too distant future.
Sharon Foster
"Chris has been organising our travel for a few years now and has gone above and beyond to deliver for us the best family holidays. We returned from a trip to Europe last year where she gave us the best advice and booked the most incredible places for us to stay. We had exclusive access to our own private villas based in France & Italy and a stunning city apartment in Paris that we would never have been able to find outselves! All transfers and local sightseeing arrnagements went like clockwork. We can't wait to book our next adventure with you. Thanks Jo, Geroge, Oscar & Kyla
