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.
