With over 30 years of retail travel experience I am the proud owner of Flying Colours Travel. I’m an intrepid traveller having been to many parts of Australia and the world including South America, USA, Canada, New Zealand, Fiji, Vanuatu and other Pacific Islands, China, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Singapore, Maldives, India, Mauritius, South Africa, Namibia and East Africa and extensively throughout Europe. I have had the pleasure of experiencing River Cruising in Europe on the very popular Danube, Bordeaux, Douro and Rhine also Ocean Line Cruises through the Mediterranean along the Coast of Turkey, through the Greek Islands, the Adriatic Sea around Italy and to Spain, the Pacific Ocean and Alaska.
There are still so many beautiful Countries that I have on my list and I look forward to sharing my experiences with you to assist in planning your dream holiday.
I started at Flying Colours Travel in January of 2011 and my International travels consist of Fiji, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, China, Malaysia, Singapore, Maldives, Hong Kong, South Korea, South Africa, Zimbabwe, New Zealand, the UK, Belgium, France and the USA. Domestically I’ve been to every state within Australia. I’ve been fortunate enough to have been on a river cruise in Europe, an ocean cruise ex Australia and aboard the Ghan.
My favourite continents are Asia and America for the history, culture, shopping and food!
I’m looking forward to travelling more and sharing my experiences with you.
Travel has always been my passion and with over 15 years in the travel industry, I have been fortunate enough to travel to many destinations including Cuba, USA, Western Europe, Britain, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Bali, Malawi in Africa and South Africa.
I lived in Vancouver, Canada for a year working in travel and 9 months working in Mexico before travelling around the country. I would love to go back to South America and also see more of Africa.
Recently I have been to Hawaii and visited London and Paris and am now in my eighth year with Jacqui at Flying Colours Travel in Sale.
My love for travel started with family trips to the Sapphire Coast and grew after hosting an exchange student from Argentina. I’ve been lucky enough to explore Australia and experience both the Ghan and Indian Pacific. I have toured Europe including a breathtaking river cruise along the Danube, eaten bubble and squeak in the UK, trekked in Nepal, watched the sunrise over the Taj in India, seen Angkor Wat in Cambodia as well as visiting Thailand, Vietnam, Mauritius, South Africa, Zimbabwe, China, New Zealand, Argentina, Canada and the United States.
I love learning about new places and exploring places that are off the beaten track. Now with two small children I love to find all the places that are friendly for the whole family.
Travel has been a passion of mine ever since my first overseas adventure back in 2010. I spent 5 weeks on a Contiki tour travelling from Los Angeles to New York before flying to Canada and working on a Ski field for a year. In 2014 I spent 2 months travelling extensively around Europe with a bit of London before starting work with Flying Colours early 2015. Since then I have been to the Cook Islands, Thailand, Vietnam, New Zealand and back to Canada where I travelled on board the Rocky Mountaineer which has been one of my favorite travel experiences to date. I am not fussy when it comes to travel and am open to any opportunity or experience that comes my way, although my dream destination is Africa.
My name is Vanessa Telfer and I am employed at Flying Colours Travel as an Administration Assistant. I help with putting together the final itineraries and travel documentation to assist the Travel Agents. I am married to Paul and we have 3 adult children.
In 2016 Paul and I did an amazing trip to Europe for our 25th Wedding Anniversary organised by Flying Colours Travel. We started our tour in Prague, which was beautiful. Our land tour took us to Berlin, Warsaw, Krakow and Budapest. We visited Auschwitz which was chilling. The second half of our tour was a River Cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam. Couldn’t recommend this tour enough.
