“We could not be happier to welcome three extraordinary luxury leaders into our house, and into our family,” said Danielle Galloway, Global Managing Director of Luxury and Independent Brands FCTG.

“The strength of our famous foundation brand, Travel Associates, with 60 businesses throughout Australia and New Zealand, plus the growing independent portfolio of boutique businesses that are now members is such a wonderful indication of the quality of our luxury travel house.”

World Wide Travel’s Simone Kaye is looking forward to the start of trading on 1 July.

“The Luxury Travel Collection is the perfect fit for my business. The completeness of the offer that is available, and its absolute dedication to elevating luxury travel in Australia is what really attracted me. There’s no other business that can deliver such a tailored luxury house for a unique business like mine,” Kaye said.

“Every one of our members has been personally invited to join this group of distinctive brands and each one is individually well known for their luxury credentials – it’s an important unifying value for LTC,” said Nikki Glading, General Manager, LTC Member Portfolio.

“Alison Lee (Complete Travel Services), Simone Kaye (World Wide Travel) and Betty Croft (Luxury Cruise Escapes) are so well established in the Australian market and known for the high level of service and expertise delivered to clients, they will fit in perfectly with our foundation members and bring our group to 11 for the start of the new financial year,” Glading said.

“Membership of the Luxury Travel Collection is by personal invitation, and based on shared values that place the luxury traveller firmly at the centre of each business and the strategy of LTC itself.”
