Hi, I am Sarah James, Domestic Travel Consultant

I have had the pleasure of starting my travel industry career in 2007 with italktravel Glynde (formerly Jetset Glynde).  It is a very exciting industry with many great opportunities. 

In addition to organising and planning my client’s Australian holidays I also can assist with planning your trips to Asia and Hawaii.  These are all fantastic destinations for families, singles and young couples.  I can also assist with group itineraries and plans.

I enjoy attending sporting events and love tennis, especially the Australian Tennis Open Championships, which I have travelled to Melbourne for several years to attend.  Whilst in Melbourne I indulge in my second love shopping and have visited extensively the many different precincts and markets.  

I have had the privilege of visiting Hawaii, Bali, Phuket as well as destinations within Australia.  I’m looking forward to visiting more overseas destinations in the future.
