What Our Clients Say

Amazing experience! Organised to perfection - down to all the quality details. The best holiday experience I have ever had. Thank you!
The girls at departure lounger were awesome! From start to finish they were so accommodating for our wants and needs. The holiday was amazing and communication before and while on the trip was amazing. They always made themselves accessible and responded quickly. Can't thank you enough for making our dream holiday become reality!
Lauren and her crew were so helpful from day 1. Nothing was too much trouble and we were given ideas and suggestions for our trip. I was given step by step guidance the whole way through the planning process on what I needed to organise from our end. The moment we departed I felt organised and each step of the trip ran smoothly and exact to what was planned. We couldn't have been happier with our trip and the support we got from the departure lounge. I highly recommend them for all your travel needs.
