Globus family of brands (GFOB) say they are “absolutely delighted with the news” from the New Zealand Government announcing the commencement of the trans-Tasman bubble, signifying the restarting of travel on an international scale from April 19.
“We’re so excited with the news of the trans-Tasman bubble kicking off on 19 April,” said Gai Tyrrell, managing director Australasia of Globus family of brands.
“So many have no doubt missed family and friends on both sides of the Tasman and are now able to reunite.
“Also, this travel corridor means Aussies can now experience our New Zealand itineraries that were launched in October last year. We developed these new trips specifically with Aussies and Kiwis in mind and worked with new suppliers to curate itineraries that visit a range of towns and cities to ensure there’s plenty of diverse experiences, suited to all types of travellers,” added Ms Tyrrell.
GFOB’s collection of itineraries in New Zealand include one Globus tour and three by Cosmos, visiting New Zealand’s famous sites and lesser-known regions, giving Aussies the opportunity to explore the country, like a local.
