Travel HQ is a travel agency that specializes in group bookings for schools and sports groups. We can also assist with fundraising and sponsorship which allows groups to travel for free. Arranging the trip and removing funding hassles means a lot less stress, a smoothly run event and more time for players to spend in their sport.
Travel HQ was set up to cater specifically for the travel needs of sports groups and schools. The initial owner, Kevin Lamb, had been in the travel industry a long time, selling the Pegasus Rental Cars brand after 23 years. During that time he saw how many schools and clubs struggled to raise money for their sports trips. He also noticed a gap in the market for travel agencies that work solely with groups. An association with Riki Enosa of Global Sport Trust meant Kevin could not only provide travel bookings but help with the fundraising process as well. Riki has over 18 years experience in fundraising and sponsorship and has played Touch and Rugby League for NZ. He understands first hand the needs of sports teams and is very keen to help younger players in sport as they will be our NZ representatives in future years.
Travel HQ is based in Nelson and offers a free service for groups anywhere in New Zealand, booking all their travel needs including accommodation, transport and flights. Global Sport Trust offers a free fundraising and sponsorship programme to Travel HQ’s clients, including schools, clubs, associations and all non profit organizations. Global Sport Trust has assisted hundreds of organizations with fundraising advice which has helped those organizations raise several million dollars.
