Michelle Wilby at Roundabout was outstanding in every sense. Could not more highly recommend her and the company. We couldn’t be happier with the service and how helpful she was.

First Class service!!!
RoundAbout travel were amazing to deal with on our recent round the world trips. Not only did they secure us fantastic business class flights, their after sales service was very helpful and accessible at all times. Just when we thought their services could not get any better, they helped us return home early at minimal cost and time lost, due to a family emergency. They worked around the clock after hours and on a weekend to get us home. We cannot thank them enough and we can highly recommend their services!
Fantastic value and service
I came across the RoundAbout Travel website accidentally when I was searching for prices for round-the-world travel. Glad I did. I have never had such quick responses from a travel agency in the past and I have been travelling for more than 45 years. A quote from my local travel agent for the same round-the-world fare was $1700 more than that offered by RoundAbout Travel. My itinerary uses excellent airlines and has very good departure times and transit wait times. Payment with Visa involved no additional charges. I cannot thank Sally enough. She offered excellent customer service, advice and efficiency. Well done RoundAbout Travel and Sally!
I booked a round the world trip, with Swiss Air. All contact was via phone and email. The booking went perfectly, and the price was great value. Special thanks to Jodie, who very quickly overcame a huge mistake made by Swiss Air, while I was in Zurich.
Fantastic service and great value
We have booked our 3rd RTW trip with Roundabout Travel and have recommended them to our friends who have also used them. They gave us great advice about options and were very speedy with getting back to us. They went above and beyond in rebooking part of our itinerary after the airline cancelled a flight which would have otherwise involved a 12 hour wait in Zurich airport. We have dealt with Mark and Adam and both have been exemplary in their dealings with us - cannot recommend them highly enough. You can pay by credit card with NO fees but need to be able to pay within 3 days of booking or the airlines will cancel the reservation. Being organised and having a good idea of what you want will expedite the procedure.
Worst Service Ever - in my 40+ years of travel!
My experience with dealing with the manager [Name removed] and consultant [Name removed] has been the worst. From an initial itinerary, unless you are prepared to pay them an immediate holding deposit, they are totally uninterested in assisting you in tailoring your holiday. They pressure you into taking their options. Twelve months on, I thought I would give them 'the benefit of the doubt', but no, they were rude and unwilling to assist unless you guarantee you will book with them. I would NEVER want any of my family or friends to experience their lack of professionalism. My next trip will be booked through ONEWORLD, just like my last.
Worst service ever
I've tried to book a ticket with [Name Removed] and I could say that she was more interested in selling what she wanted rather than my personal choices. Everything that I asked, like, it's that possible? Can I do this or that route? The answer was always no, without any explanation!!!!! It seems that she was doing a huge favor to us trying to sell an all round ticket! Run away from them!
I've just booked with them, and have been really, really impressed with their service. They seem really smart and agile, got me a great deal compared to STA and Flight Centre, and can make informed calls on things like how to get the best ff points value for money. Also very fast, very efficient, and responsive. I recommend them strongly!
Blown Away by RoundAbout's service!
My husband and I travel overseas quite regularly and I usually book on-line rather than via a travel agent. We're travelling to Africa, Greece and Malta in June-August with 3 different sets of friends and pinning them down to dates/itineraries was especially difficult. I stumbled across RoundAbout's website when looking at around the world tickets and am so thrilled that I did!
Nothing has been too much trouble for RoundAbout's Consultant., S, - changing dates, changing destinations, changing seats, losing one set of flights and having to s...tart all over again - [name removed] took it all in her stride and been more helpful, responsive and professional than any Agent I've ever dealt with. Not only did [name removed] respond to me each and every time within hours of my contacting her but she remained happy to assist even after I'd booked and paid (unlike Agents I've dealt with in the past who go 'missing' once the deal's done!). Congratulations to [name removed] for a job well done and to RoundAbout for employing such a dedicated professional. They have a loyal customer in me and I can assure you I'll be singing their praises and referring all my friends to them whenever I get the chance!! Thanks again RoundAbout for an exceptional service experience - you should be very proud!!! Great price, exceptional service
Excellent experience. Could not be happier
After returning from an awesome overseas trip, I just wanted to acknowledge the excellent service I received from [name removed] at Roundabout Travel. I was given outstanding advice about how to structure a world trip and a price that other travel agents said was impossible. She was very helpful and offered suggestions that I had not considered. She spent a great deal of time trying to understand all the places that we wanted to visit and the best way to do it. We travel to South America, Europe and North America for about the same price as just going to South America.
The trip went very smoothly. Could not be happier.
knowledgeable, helpful, responsive, patient
Very Good Overall Experience
Michelle Kerr provided excellent service in implementing our detailed ten-segment RTW flight plan.
Her e-mail communication was efficient with appropriate response to our quires. She readily made flight changes to accommodate our developing requirements, and an over-payment was quickly refunded.
Full trip documentation was provided, including an "Essential Travel Checklist" that should be carefully perused by travellers. In particular, note that Airlines can reschedule flights at any time, and while RoundAbout endeavours to advise you o...f such changes, they also suggest that you check viewtrip.com with your booking reference to get the most up to date travel times. The Checklist also warns to Never Miss/Skip a Flight because the remaining flights will be cancelled and you will need to purchase a whole new ticket. These checklist items became pertinent when I attempted online check-in with Austrian Airlines during a stopover in Dubai. I only then found out that this flight had been cancelled some months previous and our booking rescheduled to a day earlier, causing us to miss our flight. Fortunately our hotel concierge, after considerable effort, was able to have it rebooked for the following day without losing our remaining flights. Luckily, this unplanned rescheduling had no impact on the remaining flight schedules and we were able to rearrange accommodations at no extra cost. But this incident caused considerable stress. We understand that In such cases the airline is to inform the travel agent who in turn is to inform the customer of the changes. In our case this did not occur. Michelle indicated that she would look into the history of the booking to ensure it didn't happen again, but we received no feedback on the cause of the failure to communicate the rescheduling. The lesson learned is that "Confirmed" flights should not be taken literally, and to check your flight schedules regularly at viewtrip.com.
Outstanding and Trusted Travel Agent
After numerous hours researching RTW travel on the internet, we accidently came across Michelle at Roundabout Travel. All our headaches disappeared. After detailing our destinations, we were presented a wonderful itinerary including minimum connection times. (Airports are not a fun thing whilst on holidays) Nothing was a problem for Michelle, she obtained the best deal and provided a warm, caring not to mention professional attitude in all she did for us.
Infact we are so impressed that we have just re-booked with Michelle for 2013. We have no problem in singing her praise and that of Roundabout Travel and we'll continue to recommend Michelle to all family, friends and anyone who would care to listen.
Best travel service ever!
I have been using Roundabout Travel now for about five years. At least once a year, I go to a conference in the northern hemisphere. I like to clock up frequent flyer points and know that doing a RTW ticket is often cheaper than a normal return AND you get heaps more points. This agency has access to all the great deals. I have done business class RTW trips for years for lots less than advertised point to point returns. I think it helps that I have always been able to book a long way ahead. Amy is incredibly professional and such an intel...ligent person to deal with. She THINKS and is very responsive and polite and has managed rental car deals as well for me. I would never go anywhere else - this agency is the best. I've just got back from a NY trip with them and am soon off to Germany, Russia and Switzerland. I have total confidence that if something went wrong, she would be on to it. I remember when the ash cloud disrupted Australian and NZ flights some time ago. I was just putting in a query about my next trip and Amy actually apologised for taking longer than usual to respond. And this was still a very short response time. Quick responses, access to great deals, thinking and hard wroking consultant
Exellent service from friendly staff.
Booked fares to go around the world, I was pleasantly surprised by the competent service as well as the best deals around. Much better that the big names Flight Centre etc.
Thank You very much, I will pass your service on to my friends and colleagues, and will definately look for quotes and possibly further bookings in the future. My accommodation reservation in Hong Kong was also at a very good rate
