Having been in the travel industry for 19 years, I know listening to people’s thoughts and ideas then putting together every part of their journey from start to finish, is how I create the perfect holiday for you.
I love helping all my customers plan and book their own unique holiday experience.  I’m honest, reliable and have a sense of humor which is what makes me a great Travel Professional.
I like to buy all my products from a real person in a real shop, so I know how important it is to have someone that you can talk to and ask questions and help sort out any problems if needed.
Simplytravel Nelson is the only travel shop that is 100% locally owned and operated. We always have time to stop and talk to our customers and always with a smile.
So contact me if you are thinking of travelling to Europe/UK, maybe a stop in Asia, USA, Canada, Africa or South America.  We also book closer to home like the lovely South Pacific and Australia.
One of my thoughts and observations is “travel today because you don’t know what tomorrow may bring…”

Monique Mckechie

Travel Broker

Bula, Salut, Ciao, Ni Hao, Hello! My name is Monique.  I am a wife, entrepreneur and mother of two wonderful little girls.  I have lived in stunning Blenheim since I was 7 years old and have had many holidays in Australia and the UK.  I started travelling when I was just 15 years old with my family, we had many adventures.  I knew from an early age that the world was an amazing place and I wanted to see and experience more of it.

Since starting work in the travel industry I have now converted my love for the world into helping others achieve their travel dreams!  I have never looked back.  We now enjoy family holidays, and I have been able to grow my experience base – my family and I have a real passion for cruising.  I get super excited talking about my experiences onboard the ships and on the land based holidays.

I LOVE being a Travel Consultant for such an amazing company, Simplytravel.  I look forward to many more years working with people, discussing their ideas and helping them become reality.
