Welcome to Plan to Travel

We understand most people are busy and life gets hectic and travel can be very time consuming to plan.  My job is to take the stress away and help you plan a wonderful holiday so you can relax and enjoy your time away.

We are based in the Macedon Ranges and our difference is we can come to you at a time that is convenient to you to discuss your travel plans. Whether it is at your home, your office or over a drink at a Café. We are not just a 9-5 agency so we can meet you at a time convenient to you.

Our agency is totally independent and we are part of The Express Travel group so we offer competitive prices to suit every budget.

Travel has been a large part of my life for the last 30 years, with over 19 years travel industry experience in small to large retail travel chains, group travel and as a tour guide and tour director, this means I can give you an exceptional high level of knowledge and service.

Having travelled extensively over the past 30 years to over 60 countries. Just some of the most recent destinations I have been to in the last five years include Peru, Chile, USA, Romania, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, France, Portugal, Vietnam, Oman, Dubai, Spain, UK, Ireland, Noumea, Caribbean, Ireland, India, Canada, South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, China and Thailand.

I regularly visit Europe, the United Kingdom and North America most years so I am very familiar with all destinations, all modes of transport and have discovered some amazing places to visit and some that are off the tourist trail.

Whether you are looking to cruise the world, explore Asia, discover America or navigate the UK and Europe, let me use my extensive knowledge to guide you in the right direction.

Travel Insurance

You would never buy a new car without car insurance or purchase your new home without home insurance… Then, why travel without Travel Insurance?

Travel Insurance not only covers unforeseen circumstances prior to travel, but also protects pre-payments you have made should you be unable to commence your trip*. Most importantly you are protected whilst you are travelling.

We can offer you cover as soon as you pay your deposit. We have two policies available to suit your needs with leading International Travel Companies. Covermore and NIB travel insurance both provide comprehensive and budget options both with unlimited overseas medical expense cover.

Which Policy is Right For You?

Travel insurance is an absolute necessity whilst travelling overseas. We strongly recommend travel insurance to all our customers when booking a holiday. When comparing travel insurance, you need to consider the level of cover that is being provided. We can help when you have pre-existing medical conditions too.


We offer a large range of accommodation options, including centrally located hotels, resort styles, boutique styles, bed & breakfasts and apartments worldwide.

We use a large range of suppliers, offering competitive prices and sourcing the best value for money deals. Talk with us today about your accommodation needs.

Germany, Denmark & Sweden

Just got home from an amazing trip that Tania organised. We attended Falsterbo Horse Show and stayed at Malmo in Sweden, in the most amazing hotel that dated back to 1307. We then headed to Germany, Aachen to attend the best horse show in the world CHIO Aachen.

Tania was on hand to ensure we all had a great time and everything ran smoothly. Three countries in 17 days, great sightseeing, wonderful, people, food and wine. I would highly recommend Tania for all your travel needs.

Canada & Calgary tour 2017

Just finished our tour with Tania to Canada featuring the Calgary Stampede and Show jumping at Spruce Meadow as well as a horse riding guest ranch stay. It was a lovely way to travel with like minded people with all the arrangements taken care of by someone else. We met some lovely people and even my non-horsey husband had a great time. Our cruise on the Great Lakes from Toronto was also fabulous.

England & Belgium

Kerrie and I were very happy with all our travel arrangements you arranged for us to London, Bath & Bruge.  Everything went off without a hitch and we especially appreciated the fantastic business class flights at a great price.  Nothing was too much trouble to research for us.  Thanks once again Tania.

Dianne Townsend, Romsey,Victoria

Turkey, France & England

Tania organised our recent trip to Turkey, France and England and we couldn’t have been happier.  Any questions or query we had was answered promptly and efficiently.  All flights, tours and hotels etc were all hassle free and awaiting our arrival.  I would highly recommend Tania for any future travel.

Dean & Donna Lewis, Toolernvale, Victoria


I joined the trip to Spain with Tania and a super group of who supported one another exploring, eating and playing. My first trip to Europe could not have been more enjoyable thanks to Tania for organising amazing venues and being the “go to” person at all times.

Sharon Willrath, Patterson Lakes

France, Sweden & Hong Kong

We enlisted Tania to arrange our flights and accommodation fro our holiday to Paris, Stockholm and Hong Kong.  We found Tania to be efficient and she went over and above what you would normally expect form a travel agent.  The flight schedules worked like clockwork and the accommodation she suggested was great and fitted within our budget.  She even went as far as working out the best route and means of transport to and from our hotels.  All in all Tania took a lot of worry off our shoulders and all was done with a smile.

Ian and Robin Bishop, Riddells Creek

Spain & Portugal

I loved Spain and Portugal and Tania was very helpful in all aspects of both bookings. The hotel’s were great, very clean and professional. I had dietary requirements which were taken care of. It was lovely to feel safe and looked after. Travelling for me was a scary thing but I am pleased I did this trip in a group and feel the need and the confidence to do more now.

Sue Pearce, Romsey, Victoria


I have used Tania as my travel agent on a  few occasions and have been more than happy with her service.  As usual I need flights A.S.A.P and Tania has always found me the best deals she can.  Tania is a very reliable and dedicated to getting her customers the best deal.

Janine Smilie, Kyneton


Tania, is a true travel expert.  I have always done everything myself and before now and previously didn’t see the value of a travel agent.  That was until I couldn’t get my flights to work and engaged Tania to take over.  I was blown away by her professionalism and clear communication.  Not once did I ever feel unsure of anything.  She made life so easy and really listened to what I wanted and made it happen, saving me so much time.  I can’t recommend Tania highly enough.

Norwegian Cruise to Mediterrean

We had an amazing holiday and cruise overseas.  We made our booking through Tania on Norwegian cruises.  We were extremely happy with Tania as she stayed in contact with us and updated us when payments were due.  I have certainly known friends who have travelled overseas and to their horror the hotel didn’t have any record of their booking.  That certainly didn’t happen with us and everything worked like clockwork.  I would be more than happy to recommend Tania and I have already.

Carol Gillespie, New Gisborne, Victoria


On behalf of my husband and myself I would like to thank Tania for organising our overseas trip to Canada in September.  We had not travelled overseas for many years so it was all new to us again.  The trip was absolutely marvellous made more so by Tania’s attention to detail.  Our itinerary had every aspect covered and she made it very easy for us to follow.  We realised what a great job Tania had done when fellow traveller’s on our tour had so many things go wrong and a few were trying to contact their agents back in Australia for help.  We had none of that.  Tania had covered everything needed for us.  Were were so grateful for her great work and we could not fault anything.  All the hotels and tours she booked were perfect.  We have already started planning our next trip with her and have already recommended her to others.  Thank you so much Tania for a wonderful stress free trip.

Lynette & Rodney McFarlane, New Gisborne, Victoria


We just wanted to write to say thank you so much for helping us to organise our five week European family holiday.  Everything ran like clockwork and we made memories to last a lifetime.  I really appreciate the way you thought about our family and created an itinerary that suited us.  Thank you also for all your valuable travel tips that really helped first timers like us.  Really looking forward to working on the next big trip together.

Sally Rigney, Thallon, Queensland

Scenic Cruise to France

We found Tania’s service very good.   Tania was very attentive and supportive.  Our flights were great and her suggestions were right on the money and all the travel tips were helpful too.  I have no hesitation in recommending her to future clients.
