Testimonials

  • As an immigrant to New Zealand I’ve always had a requirement for overseas travel. So way back in 2007 whilst looking at options for my parents to visit New Zealand from the UK a colleague of mine quite simply said ‘give this guy a try’, so this was my introduction to Maxwell Burns the founder of Champion Travel. Now over 10 years have passed and I’m thankful to say that Max and Champion Travel have looked after all my travel needs both home and abroad. Further to this my extended family in New Zealand and Scotland have been utilising the great services provided by Max for their travel needs throughout the World. To coin a phrase from my family: ‘who would have thought that we would be using a travel agent in Napier for all our travel needs both home and abroad’. For all our travel needs I’ve found Max to be efficient, knowledgeable and pleasant, whilst also being readily accessible for advice and assistance. Reliable and timely documentation for the wide range of travel services one now needs is a feature of a client focused delivery by Champion Travel. This provides our family a ‘one stop shop’ best value for money travel solution every time and I would not hesitate to recommend Champion Travel for all your business and holiday travel requirements. Here’s to the next 10 years Max…..
