At Pan Australian Travel (PAT) we’ve been helping business and leisure travellers for over 50 years. In an industry full of flash-in-the-pan businesses, that makes us one of Australia’s most established travel agencies.
We don’t do budget travel or mass-market package deals. Instead, we focus on helping business travellers take the stress out of travel, and helping leisure travellers plan the luxury holiday or cruise of their dreams.
In other words, our first priority is great service. We believe you’ll be blown away by the expert personal service you get from our team. In fact, we guarantee it: if you’re not 100% satisifed with our service, we’ll refund all agency fees.
