Greg and Angela Taylor are thrilled to announce themselves as the proud new owners of Helloworld Travel Torquay.
Having visited many wonders of the world, the pair believe they bring extensive knowledge and experience to the business model.
The Taylors said they are keen to play a role in creating exciting new adventures for people who walk through their doors.
So, where did their combined love for travel stem from?
Greg stepped out of his comfort zone at 20 when he departed the Australian border with a friend to explore what the world had to offer.
Less than two years later, Greg arrived home after travelling across 38 American states, serving pints in an English pub, hitchhiking around Ireland and Northern Ireland and covering most of the mainland in Europe with a Eurail pass.
He also visited the pyramids of Giza in Egypt and lived for four months on a Kibbutz in Israel.
But his travelling escapades didn’t end there. Chasing the sun around the globe, Greg would return to Australia during the summer months to earn some cash and catch up with friends. At one stage, Greg hadn’t endured winter for four years.
Angela caught the travel bug soon after marrying Greg when they embarked on an extended family holiday to Fiji with their three children.
They have since taken trips to New Zealand, Thailand, Bali, Singapore, Europe, Hawaii and a couple of extended trips to the USA.
They have also caravanned to central Australia and have had several holidays in Queensland to escape the Victorian winter. Canada and Alaska are next on Angela’s bucket list.
At Helloworld Travel Torquay, Greg and Angela, along with their dedicated team of travel consultants, aim to be on hand to personalise all the travel needs of their clients and provide them with the highest level of customer service and value for money.
They hope future travellers will stop by and chat about cruising, self-drive holidays and organised tours.
The new-look store – which launched last week – will be open Monday-Friday from 9am to 5pm.
Helloworld Travel Torquay will also trade on Saturdays from 9am to 12:30pm, all year round.
Keep an eye out on Facebook and Instagram for exciting deals and promotions as well as loyalty and referral discounts that will be available for completed bookings.
Living and breathing the widely recognised Helloworld Travel brand, Greg and Angela feel they can create wonderful memories for their clients while giving them peace of mind that their needs will be looked after even while they are away.
