BEYOND Personal Travel Companion Service
no limits, new horizons

Welcome to BEYOND

A professional and bespoke personally curated travel service to help you fulfil your travel dreams

Alas, all my services are on hold during this challenging time of uncertainty and high travel restrictions. When things settle down, and travel is possible again, my Beyond PTC Service is the ideal solution to help you deal with potential anxieties and difficulties associated with travel into the future. We will make sure you are able to travel in a safe and protected way when the world opens up to us again. My service can enable you to reconnect with family, friends and loved ones in the safest possible way.

Meanwhile, stay put and stay well.

Personal Travel Companion Service (PTCS)
Specially-curated Small-group Tours for those seeking support and assistance
Travel Design & Assistance

We specialise in travel companionship, tailored to meet your individual desires.
If you're keen to get out and see your local area or the wider world,
we can provide the support you need if you're not keen or able to do it alone.
We also offer uniquely-curated fully-escorted tours for small groups with an emphasis on taking it slowly.

Perfect for older travellers & anyone who needs assistance to travel.

Phone Sally on 021 480 323 to discuss the possibilities

Travel sooner rather than later - if you put it off for another year or two, you’ll only be older when you go - or you may not get there at all

NB: If you have come here via, please be advised that I have closed the Masquerade site as of mid-October. Please see my Creativation page on this site for information about my creative endeavours. If you are seeking a mask, I will aim to help you. Do contact me!

Personal Travel Companion (PTC),
Tour Leader and Travel Designer

As a professional Personal Travel Companion (PTC, for short) and tour leader, it is my privilege to help you see the world, your way.

With many years and types of travel experiences under my belt, I offer a personalised curated travel experience tailored to suit you. 

My service is for anyone who would appreciate support, company, assistance and a guiding hand on any journey, anywhere, for any reason - within New Zealand and beyond.

  • Are you single, widowed, unable to find a travel buddy or not confident to travel alone, but still want to get out and see the world?
  • Do you love travelling but would prefer someone else to take care of logistics and guide you safely throughout the journey?
  • Are you someone who loves to see the world in your own independent way, but would enjoy company and support along the way?
  • Are you keen to visit family or friends afar but need assistance to get there?
  • Does visiting the country of your ancestors or revisiting your birthplace appeal, but you're not sure how to go about it?
  • Have you been thinking about attending a sports event, festival, conference or workshop but going alone is too daunting?
  • Are you held back by minor health issues or travel worries? 


Personally Escorted Trips

I also offer occasional personally escorted tours that I put together myself - some are designed for those who need assistance to travel, others are with independent singles in mind. In the pipeline ...!

Check my Trips page for info.

About the BEYOND PTC Service

The BEYOND Personal Travel Companion Service (PTCS) is for anyone who would like support and assistance while travelling. Ideal for older, younger, singles, couples, and small groups of friends.

It could be just right for YOU!

My service offers you the opportunity to travel without worry - it may be just what you've been looking for, but didn't know existed.

It doesn't matter if you've never left New Zealand or if you're a seasoned traveller; or whether you want to go away for a day, a few days or several weeks - my Personal Travel Companion Service not only takes the angst out of travel, but also adds an extra layer of comfort and reassurance, friendship and fun.

This service might be perfect for you, or perhaps for a family member or friend who is keen to travel but put off by challenges and obstacles in the way.

A Personal Travel Companion (PTC) provides company, care and support. Confidentiality is assured. You will be in safe hands with your own PTC by your side.

If something untoward or unplanned was to happen on a trip, your PTC will deal with it, as well as troubleshoot anything else that may need sorting due to an unexpected occurrence. Your PTC will make all the necessary arrangements while you focus on enjoying yourself!

There's no need for you to travel alone or with worry - call me!

You travel, and your family rests easy in the knowledge you are safe and well-cared for whilst you visit the destinations of your dreams!
