Galloway’s sentiment was echoed by the presence of Jeff Hakim at the event, the founder of the original brand Travel Partners, whose contributions and legacy have been key in shaping the foundation of the business’s success.

Nick Queale, General Manager, Envoyage Australia said the evening was the perfect opportunity to share a glimpse of the brand’s upcoming initiatives which includes a shopfront offering and specialisations for independent travel advisors.

“As we seek to always exceed the expectations of our partners and customers at Envoyage we will be providing a suite of new offerings that can be tailored to the individual needs of the agent or agency partners we are working with.

“This is not only our brand, but also theirs and we want them to be able to apply it to suit their own unique journeys.”

“We’ve already had huge success with Envoyage’s launch in the USA and Canada and as we continue that momentum here in Australia it’s clear that we really are creating a true heart and home for independent travel.”
