Meet the Team

Hello, I am Carla, I have been part of Villair for over 27 years now.

My specialist areas are: Australia, New Zealand, Asia, South Africa, Mauritius & USA. I specialise in Weddings/Honeymoons Abroad, Round the World experiences along with Tailor-Made Itineraries & Luxury Holidays.

Destinations visited so far: Australia, Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore, Bali, Malaysia, Dubai, Egypt, Mauritius, South Africa, Caribbean, USA & numerous Mediterranean Resorts & Cities.

After managing the business for many years and nurturing it as my own, eventually I became a partner in 2011. My main priority is client and staff satisfaction.

My greatest joy is building up great relationships with my clients. Planning in-depth itineraries to suit each individual’s requirements, taste and budget it is a real delight. I have such a desire to see more of the World, learn about different cultures, and pass on my experiences to assist others. Don’t waste time trawling through the internet, get in touch with me and let us start planning your trip of a lifetime!

Hello everyone, my name is Mike. In 1983 my then Business Partner and I purchased Faulkner’s Travel, and after changing the Agency name we installed new communication technology and then made plans for a complete change of direction away from norm.

My specialist areas are: Australia, New Zealand, Asia, South Africa, Mauritius, USA and Canada I specialise in Round the World journeys along with general Tailor-Made itineraries & Cruising.

Destinations visited so far: Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Hong Kong, China, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Bali and Lombok, Dubai, Oman, Mauritius, South Africa, USA, Hawaii, Caribbean, Bermuda, Canada, Egypt and many Mediterranean resorts and Cities.

I always believed that advice about a location abroad could best be given if first hand experience had been gained. Therefore I encouraged my staff to take every opportunity to visit and explore different areas of the world. Lots of testimonials and a high percentage of repeat clients prove that the experiences we recommend and the value we give are fully appreciated.

My personal service extends to helping all Villair clients on their return if there is any dissatisfaction with a Tour Operator, airline, hotel or even an Insurer.
