Sally Blyth, Personal Travel Companion

As a professional and experienced Personal Travel Companion (PTC), it is my privilege to help you fulfil your travel dreams.

Let's make it happen!

With many years and types of travel experiences under my belt, I offer a Personal Travel Companion Service (PTCS) for anyone who would appreciate support, company, assistance and a guiding hand on any journey, anywhere, for any reason - within New Zealand or around the world.††

I am a group tour leader (for Maher Tours), freelance travel writer, artist, designer, facilitator, administrator and long-time committee person, amongst other things. I enjoy creativity, music, quiz, skiing, food/wine, horse racing, languages and community spirit. The world continually keeps me inspired. Europe is my specialty.

  • †††††††† 40+ years of travel (itís a passion)
  • †††††††† 40+ countries visited (there are 195)
  • †††††††† 40+ airlines flown (I adore flying)
  • †††††††† 40+ ski resorts enjoyed (winter is wonderful)
The world continually keeps me inspired. Europe is my specialty.

My Personal Travel Companion Service is for anyone and everyone: the elderly, the young, (and everyone in between); male, female; singles, couples, or small groups of friends. It's for anyone who'd love to travel with a personal companion to take care of everything.

It could be just right for YOU!


You're keen to see the world but ...

  • the thought of travelling alone seems overwhelming;
  • it may not be possible or practical for family or friends to accompany you on a trip - but you don't want that to compromise your travel;
  • you wish to travel independently but desire support and companionship;
  • mobility, anxiety or minor health issues may be holding you back.
Whether you wish to attend a family event, visit a bucket-list destination or embark on a trip of a lifetime; whether itís within New Zealand or the other side of the world, I can take you there and support you every step of the way.


My aim is for you to get the very most out of your travel, from start to finish. There are a variety of ways I can assist.

  • Accompanying you on flights, train journeys etc, or driving you on a road journey
