About Me

My name is Mel. I am passionate about all things travel. Growing up in a family who travelled at every opportunity and with my love of nature and wildlife, travel was always going to be my thing.

Finishing school then on to business college and adding a diploma of Travel & Tourism to my studies, so began my travel career. Now with over 20 years of experience, I have a wealth of knowledge in many areas including Retail, Corporate, Wholesale Travel, and Managing.

I have found some key aspects when helping friends and clients with their travel needs is listening and asking the right questions. I love hearing about each traveller's experience and I always offer my help and advice, whether it is a small getaway you are after or your once-in-a-lifetime holiday or honeymoon. These days, most of my travelling is as a couple or a family of 5, so I am more than happy to help you with your family vacation and can offer some great advice, tips, or exclusive travel deals. If you are wanting to travel with your favourite furry friend, I am all yours :)

Alternatively, if you are in need of any corporate travel arrangements, I can offer advice on aircrafts, airport lounges, and make sure your check in is as smooth as possible. As your Personal Travel Manager, you can pretty much contact me any time, day or night, and I am happy to take the ease and stress out or your last-minute changes. Need advice on hotels, frequent flyer memberships, or require annual insurance? Just send me your profile and I will take the hassle out of organising your business trips and have this done for you with ease.

Although I have an extensive list of places I have travelled to, here are some of my personal favourites: Croatia, Austria. and Germany and those a little closer to home, China, Cook Islands, and New Zealand. Each destination has reminded me how lucky we are to explore this wonderful planet, the mysteries that are waiting around each corner and how we should always be striving to not only give back by donating to those in need but to do all we can to lessen our impact on the environment.

Let me help take you there!
I look forward to meeting you soon,

Mel Buterin

Mel booked my honeymoon to the Maldives with a Singapore layover (a suggestion on her behalf as I've never visited there before). She looked after us the whole way through, making sure we had all our vouchers for flights and accommodation and even going the extra mile by surprising us with a honeymoon special at both hotels! I highly recommend booking through itravel with Mel and I cannot wait for her to help me plan my next trip to Egypt!! Thank you for a great experience!
