It’s been a pleasure to have worked with such amazing destinations for over 30 years. I enjoy passing on my experience of the Far East and Australasia, having travelled extensively in both areas. Personal favourites are Vietnam for the variety and the South Island of New Zealand for the spectacular scenery.

I started in the travel industry in 2008 after returning from a working holiday in Australia and have been hooked ever since!  In that time, I’ve been fortunate to explore, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Hong Kong, The Cook Islands and New Zealand to name a few!

After over 30 years of working in travel, the thrill of travelling never fails to amaze me. I enjoy meeting the local people and taking time to understand their culture. Travel is a great leveller and teacher of life.

I started my journey with ‘IBA’ in 2015 after completing a degree in Tourism Management. In this time I have been privileged enough to visit Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong and Australia. Personal highlights include exploring the various bustling cities Asia has to offer and Australia’s spectacular coastline.

Sales Manager 01423 790023

Having worked with ‘IBA’ since the company was formed in 2009, I am incredibly proud of how the business has developed over that time.  South East Asia and Australasia are fantastic areas to work with.  It is tricky to pick a favourite destination, but the beach resorts of Southern Thailand are hard to beat.  

Helen Mather

Product Manager

After a year backpacking around Asia and Australia I started my career in travel and have never left –  that was over 20 years ago now.  During this time I have been fortunate enough to visit some of the most beautiful places on the planet, my current favourites being Coral Bay in Western Australia and Khao Sok National Park in Thailand.

Admin Manager

I have worked in travel since I was 18 (more than a few years ago!) and have been very lucky to visit a lot of fantastic destinations. Highlights include seeing a massive monitor lizard and wild Orang-Utan in Borneo and having chef Anne at Tanjong Jara Resort cook any food I wanted without choosing from a menu!!
