The travel industry is in a strange place at the moment. There’s confusion about where we can travel and when, and sometimes it just feels like too much of a hassle for travellers. Luckily, as the world starts to open up again, the team at Helloworld Travel Rockingham are here to help us out! 

Team member Clive has had some new, big challenges thrown at him over the past couple of years, but his priority of making his customers’ day has always remained.  

“I’d be calling clients to let them know that I’d secured them an alternative tour date after their original tour was cancelled, and they’d be so happy and relieved. I’d take calls from clients thanking me for making their arrangements when they’ve had a lovely holiday, which made my day too!” 

Planning and rescheduling people’s holidays can be a busy job. So, Clive likes starting the day off with a hot drink from Crema Crew. “They’re just opposite us. I order a long black to help the brain tick over.” 

As a travel expert, we had to ask Clive for his recommendations! “That’s a tricky one, because with travel there is such a huge, diverse range of destinations and travel styles that we cover. I would hate to single out just one! Though, my favourites though are Japan and South Africa.” But, if he had to pick a destination for his best friend, he’d definitely go with the Maldives. 

Sometimes, as it happens, you don’t have to go particularly far to see some new scenery. Clive recalled a time that he got to see something new right here in the Centre! “One of the strangest moments would have to be watching the indoor waterfalls when we had the big storm last year.” 

When he’s not busy helping others create their perfect holiday, Clive will often duck into Woolies or Coles to grab some lunch. Outside of the Centre, he loves getting outdoors. “I love going for a beach walk. We are so lucky to live beside such a great stretch of coastline.” 

When it comes to Helloworld Travel, Clive thinks there’s more to the business than some customers might think! “We handle all travel-related arrangements, not just flights. We sell cruises, tours (including day tours), car hire, accommodation, travel insurance and more — so we really do have you completely sorted.” 

Finally, we asked Clive for three factors that separate Helloworld from other travel agencies. “Firstly, we’re locally owned and operated. We have the personal approach of a small business, but the backing and buying power of a large company. And, we are travelled people ourselves, having visited over 50 countries between our team.” 

So, whether it’s a relaxing getaway, a work trip, reuniting with family, or maybe just asking some travel questions, make sure you visit Clive and the team at Helloworld Travel. They’re experts in all things travel and can’t wait to help you plan your next adventure. Happy holidaying!
