Expats abroad

Are you an expat living abroad?

Travelling from the Middle East or Southeast Asia?

If you're an expat lucky enough to live in one of these incredible locations, and you are looking to visit Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, or the Cook Islands, getting there is a lot easier and faster, as it is only one stop away from your destination - one stop less than if you were travelling from Europe - this means that you can easily visit one of these destinations in two weeks and create long-lasting memories.

  • Travel with the knowledge that we are there for you every step of the way. With a 24/7 emergency number, we are there from the moment we meet till you arrive safely back home.
