Our story......

 

Ramsgate Travel Service was established in 1983 by Rosemary Peart, with a simple desire to sell travel the way it should be sold – carefully matching trusted, quality product with discerning customers, ensuring her own personal satisfaction in providing the best holiday for her clients’ needs, tastes and budget.

Today, the agency is operated by Justine Sealey, and a team of 7 expert advisers. More than thirty years ago, Justine began her career in travel, first as a work experience student, then going on to become Rosemary Peart’s protegée, and a highly respected and awarded travel adviser, in her own right.

Carefully selected and nurtured industry partnerships, ensure Ramsgate Travel Service remains at the forefront in designing beautifully curated travel experiences which can range from an indulgent regional weekend away to a multi-faceted long journey abroad.

Hotel affiliations are an extremely important component in providing a quality, and enhanced holiday experience: in this field Justine excels, with a contact list which is the envy of the travel industry.

Ramsgate Travel Service, through the knowledge and experience of Justine and her team, is one of Australia’s premier specialist cruise agencies, and a regular recipient of industry awards and accolades. An incredibly loyal, and growing client list further endorses Ramsgate Travel Services’ reputation as experts in this fast growing travel sector.

The retail travel landscape has changed beyond recognition, since 1983 however, whilst Ramsgate Travel Service, as a business, has adopted the necessary changes, the Rosemary Peart culture, of providing outstanding travel experiences i.e. matching the best in customer service, with carefully designed arrangements – land, sea or air – remains firmly entrenched.

You and your travel arrangements are in very capable hands at Ramsgate Travel Service.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION

Hong Kong and Paris – so to make it easy when I go to Paris I have a stopover in Hong Kong to satisfy my love of both cities.  Have lost track of my visits to Hong Kong – would have to be over 20!!!

CRUISE SHIPS YOU HAVE SEEN

As the resident person who gets “sea sick” I have seen almost every ship that has been in Sydney in the past 15 + years when it has been docked!  Have cruised on lots of river boats (my specialty as no movement!!!) in Europe, including APT, Uniworld, Tauck, Scenic.  I have cruised on ships on the Yangtze River and in Russia.  In 2012 I faced my fear of sea sickness again, having had a bad crossing many years ago on QE2 from Auckland to Sydney in February (any wonder I was sea sick??) and did a gorgeous Med cruise from Venice to Dubrovnik on an older traditional small ship “Aegean Odyssey” and I loved every minute and didn’t get sea sick.  The waters were calm and I had great sea sick tablets, slept very well every night!  So now there is no stopping me in 2014 as long as I can find areas where the waters are sheltered!
