       ​Key People

It's a team approach

While we have may the latest technology and the smartest tools, our major asset is still our people.  We're 100% New Zealand owned, and everyone – from our owner operators to our travel consultants and account managers, our finance, training, IT and HR teams – is a strength.  

We’re a team of highly motivated people who thrive on a fun and creative culture – and who will go out of our way to assist our clients. Orbit’s structure empowers our people to create more opportunities for your business.

Our business model

We never work in isolation. Our seven owner operators from our nine offices meet regularly to exchange ideas and updates, strateg​ise and plan, and we pool many of our resources, experience, and knowledge.

Highly experienced consultants

All our travel consultants share a love of travel, have a minimum of Level 4 ATTTO travel qualification and have passed rigorous assessments to join our team. They receive regular training to keep up to speed, and are committed to finding new ways to make travel more inspiring.


Innovative account managers

We’d like you to think of your account manager as your business partner and advocate. Drawing on their extensive market knowledge and flair for creative thinking, your account manager will strongly advocate on your behalf to ensure that you always get the best possible deals.
