Not so long ago we were taking International travel for granted. It was as easy as searching for a ticket online and you could be up in the air whenever it suited you. But with the global pandemic continuing to ravage the travel industry it’s no longer as easy so we’re answering, ‘how to travel internationally now?’
As you may be hearing though, some tourist destinations are re-opening and people have been travelling the globe for work and family throughout the last 18 months. If you’re in Australia or looking to return to Australia, to join these travellers you’ll need an expert travel agent by your side, just like us.
Despite the government restrictions, limited flights and vaccination requirements, TTFN Travel has successfully seen their clients travel the globe as needed for work or for those looking to return to Australia. Each trip requires a great deal of planning and research and throughout the journey, our team is closely watching to ensure you meet each of your connecting flights.
We’ve recently received a review from Kendra, detailing her experience of trying to fly from Toronto, Canada to Perth and confirming just how to travel internationally now:
“If you are looking for a travel agency, I honestly cannot recommend TTFN Travel and most importantly Kathleen more. My husband and I relocated to Australia from Canada for his job. He came over first to set things up and I was to come a few weeks later… but alas another lockdown happened and my flight was cancelled. Kathleen monitored flights every day finding me one, with not the greatest routing but found me one nonetheless. But going above and beyond as she does, she continued keeping an eye on flights just in case another popped up with a better routing and one did and she got me on that flight. But alas, the story does not end there. The routing was a little longer than normal, which I was ok with. So I flew from Toronto to Germany as the first leg. My flight from Toronto left late, so I missed my connecting flight to Zurich. Kathleen was on it and got me onto another flight so I wouldn’t miss my connecting flight to Hong Kong. When I got to the gate to head to Hong Kong, I was informed by Cathay Pacific employees that I was not allowed on the flight due to some very rare circumstances (another long story) but I was not going to be boarding that flight. Stuck in Zurich and with flights to Perth almost non existent. Kathleen called me, told me to hold tight and within 10 minutes… I don’t know how, she had me on a flight to Dubai and then onto Perth. She checked me into my flight, told me what I needed to and I honestly can’t thank her enough. It was an extremely frustrating and to be honest a little terrifying situation, and Kathleen got me through! If you are looking for a travel agency where you are not just another number, TTFN is the way to go. My husband and I will be booking all of our future travel with them and with Kathleen.”
