That Personal Touch
Orba Personal is just that, the Division within Orba Travel Brokers that provides the experience and know-how to truly personalise your holiday.
Travel today is about “Experiential Travel”. It is not enough to provide an airline ticket and an accommodation voucher. Our travellers are demanding more, they want to experience culture, people, history and even feelings. We’ll go one step further – so you do as well!
A true story as to why you should use a Travel Agent like Orba Travel Brokers
A fascinating but crazy, true story from a Shuttle Express driver (Barry from Melbourne, Florida). He recently encountered an elderly Asian-looking gentleman wandering around this small, Florida airport. When Barry asked him if he needed help, the man said in broken English that he had just looked outside the window, and it didn’t look like Australia.
Turns out the man had actually flown from Japan, made a connection through Atlanta on his Delta flight and re-boarded for Melbourne Florida, all the while not realising he was headed to the wrong Melbourne. He had booked MLB rather than MEL and only realized he was in the wrong town upon landing in Florida!
In the old days of travel agents booking everyone's flights and accommodation, this would have been pretty hard to accomplish.
We’d like to pretend that the elderly Japanese man was unique. But there are lots of stories of similar misunderstandings (often London in Canada compared to London in UK) and even ones where similar sounding names caused confusion (Oakland, CA and Auckland, NZ).
Orba Personal Consultants can immerse our clients in a true travel experience, can provide access to unbelievable activities, show-stopping events and once-in –a-lifetime occasions.
We have the contacts and, more importantly, the first-hand knowledge, to differentiate your next holiday from those you’ve undertaken in the past or those taken by your friends.
