If you have ever had the experience of heading into a travel agency and having to explain to the consultant sat in front of you that Bali is an Island within Indonesia and that Indonesia is 'quite close' to Australia, you will appreciate the Global Village staff for the same reasons that we do.

We consider that the main reason for our success to be the extremely high quality of our staff who are not only experienced sales personnel but are also extremely well travelled individuals who between them have covered all fours corners of the globe many many times over.

Many have come from other travel jobs and offer a little more experience than some other companies can claim to offer and many are 'experts' in specific areas of independent travel such as over land touring, the Tran-Siberian rail journey, Diving and Trekking.

All our staff are given the opportunity to continue travelling whilst working at the Global Village helping to keep their enthusiasm and knowledge at the very highest level.

The Global Village Round The World Team

Each consultant comes to the Global Village and roundtheworldflights.com with a wealth of round the world experience - both as travel consultants and travel enthusiast.

                        

The vast majority of the team have been in the travel business for over six years and have travelled to at least five of the worlds seven continents. Between us all we have visited over 90% of the recognised countries and states on this planet.


By working closely with each other, with consultants sharing their experiences of travelling in some of the far flung corners of the world as well as new airline routes and travel trade secrets, the sales team as a unit have an unprecedented knowledge of round the world travel. Put simply, you are booking with the experts, not some 16 year school leaver.
