Monett Johnston

Director

2017 saw me focus on furthering my cruise specialist training.  I attended CLIA Australasia cruise conference and attained the ultimate achievement, with my Masters in Cruising.

With over 45 years in the travel industry, I have been fortunate to visit many amazing and exotic destinations around the world, to experience many different cultures, to enjoy different cuisines, gaining indepth knowledge that is invaluable to my business. I have journeyed escorting Groups, on family holidays and Corporate events. My favourite way to travel would have to be cruising, the focus on destinations or resort style comfort, boutique ships or fun ships, they all offer a difference.

One of the best parts of my career in the travel industry has been nurturing and developing the knowledge and skills of the consultants that have worked with me over the years. It is fantastic to see what amazing Consultants they have all become and how they enhance the experiences of their clients.  

Travel is all about experiences and memories and I believe that this starts from the moment you walk into YOU Trave Whitianga. We look forward to welcoming you in store and sharing our knowledge and experience with you.

I have been part of the team for more than 22 years now. Spending some of that time living and working in the U.K as a travel agent. And I made the most of my time there, traveling all over Europe. I am fortunate to be part of an industry where I get to explore new and exotic destinations frequently. The more destinations I experience the more I look forward new destinations to discover. My Caribbean cruise with MSC was one of my highlights.

Being able to pass on your knowledge and create meaningful travel experiences for my clients is very important to me. I have escorted groups for sports and cultural experiences and on themed cruises. CLIA Cruise Specialist, Unique Destination Specialist.

I love the diversity of culture and the amazing experiences that are on offer in these destinations - from the gorgeous greenness and history of Ireland, the culture of Cuba, to the outlet shopping stores found all over the USA and Hawaii!

I have been fortunate to live in Europe and especially enjoyed my time in Italy, throughout this time I made the most of seeing and doing much that Europe had to offer. A few of my many highlights of Europe would have to be; living like a local in Italy immersing myself in the culture and traditions. Europe is still an absolute must do for any age group. Whether travelling with a youthful group or enjoying the Mediterranean cruising way of life. One of my favourite holiday destinations is Tahiti. I have recently returned from India which was an amazing country to explore and this has created a desire to visit more of these exotic and different countries of the world.

I look forward to passing on my passion for travel. Come and see me to tailor your own personalised travel that will be an experience of a lifetime.
