Downunder Travel

The Calgary Team

Jason
Destination Specialist, Calgary
After moving to Canada from Perth, Australia, my first job in Calgary was at a Corporate Travel company. Corporate Travel was not fun for me, so I then founded Downunder Travel and haven’t looked back since! Being an Australian, the South Pacific regions, as well as Asia and Africa are all areas that I have traveled to and as a result feel most comfortable selling. Helping travellers plan out the ultimate vacation experience never gets old for me and an excellence in customer service is an expectation all travellers have, which is something I aim to achieve every single day.

Where I’ve been: Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Cook Islands, French Polynesia, Kenya, Namibia, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, South Korea, Indonesia

I hit the ground running when I graduated with a B.A. honours program in Travel & Tourism back in 2011 and I haven’t looked back since.  I especially enjoy self-drive vacations with touring options and excursions built-in along the way as this gives travellers a sense of freedom to explore on their own terms. Travellers appreciate the ability to see what they want on their journeys, alongside some “must see” experiences that I love to build in their travel proposals for that extra wow-factor!

Destination Specialist, Calgary
After working in the hospitality industry for over six years, I’m now living the dream and pursuing my passion for travel.  My love of travel began in 2015 when I got the opportunity to complete a 14-month long world backpacking trip, where I was lucky enough to visit 23 countries on this life-changing experience! Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific always have something for every traveller, whether you’re a wine lover, foodie, adrenaline junkie or you’re simply looking for a getaway with magnificent landscapes and beaches!

Where I’ve been: Cook Islands, New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Maldives, India, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa

Angie
Office & Ticketing Manager, Calgary
I have worked in the travel industry for over four years, but being married to an Aussie affords me a fair amount of travelling to the beautiful country of Australia and surrounding regions!  I believe it is important for travellers to visit Australia and New Zealand, as well as the Pacific islands, because of the great people, the diverse landscapes and the incredibly laid back cultures... let's not forget about the flat white Australian coffee, the delicious wines as well as the stunning beaches! 

Where I’ve been: Australia, New Zealand, Cook Islands

Minnie
Accountant, Calgary
I received my Bachelor of Arts as well as a Graduate Diploma, in Financial Management in Asia. I then immigrated to Moncton, where I returned to school and eventually earned a diploma of I.T. solutions from a community college and worked as a programmer for a year.  My career allowed me to dabble a bit in the tourism industry as I became a budget car rental reservation agent. Upon moving to Calgary in 2013 I worked as a Financial Service Representative at CIBC, which then led me to Downunder Travel!

Where I’ve been: Australia, Singapore, Beijing
