About Me

Not everyone is passionate about their jobs, however, I can say ‘’travel’’ is definitely my passion.

I have always loved to travel; the thought of helping people achieve their travel dreams is the perfect career for me.

I moved to New Zealand from the UK 17 years ago. During my 28 years as a Travel agent in the industry, I have progressed from Office Junior to Branch Manager within only 3 travel agencies in the UK. From 2002 until 2010 I worked as a Senior Consultant for an agency in Wellington, making travel arrangements for corporate, government and retail clients. In March 2010 I became an NZ Travel Broker.

As a Travel Broker, I have the experience and knowledge to help you with any travel requirements you may have; business, pleasure or both!

For the past 8 years I have run a stand at Wedding shows where I assist Brides and Grooms with overseas wedding and honeymoons. Feel free to ask me about Honeymoon registries.
During my career I have booked many school trips for language, commerce and sporting teams to China, Thailand, New Caledonia, USA and Australia.

My own travels have taken me to destinations such as the USA, Hawaii, The Caribbean, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand, Cook Islands, Samoa,Dubai, Italy, France plus, I arranged my own wedding to Fiji for 60 guests. I am a mother of 2 boys that have travelled a fair bit so have the experience to assist with travel arrangements for families with children and can offer expert tips on taking the stress out of travel.

I would love the opportunity to help with your future travel plans; family holiday, dream destination, business trip, conference or incentive travel, group travel, wedding, honeymoon or even a weekend away.

If you’re looking for someone to be passionate about your travel plans don’t hesitate to contact me.

For those that take school groups away I would be happy to assist as I have my own Travel for Schools website too.

Sam all I can say is….. stunning stunning stunning… !!!! We’ve nailed it…. totally!!! Brilliant work thanks so much… you are a real gem, a real angel and everything in between and more!

Such absolute efficiency and being there at every moment to dovetail with every request and there have been plenty!!! But between us all we feel we have pulled together at the 11th hour what we think will be a brilliant trip and we’re now feeling we can leave with all details in place ‘that we can think of’…. we are more than happy!

Leonie and Bill Harris

We met Sam, at a wedding expo, and asked her to look into our holiday, she came up with lots of options, and we eventually came up with the right place and right options, Sam worked into the night 7 days a week to get this very important trip sorted, most people would have given up, but Sam kept on going and going.

I would strongly recommend Sam, and will defiantly be using her services again.

Sam is the sort of consultant you would like to work with, she provides good, honest information and will go out of her way to help you. If you are looking for a Travel Consultant I would thoroughly recommend you have a chat with Samantha Hedge.

Tony Cutting

Sam had to provide travel for 6 of our Mayfair Pool agents from different parts of New Zealand. She organised all the travel to Rarotonga in an instant. We will definitely be using Sam for all our future Travel. An excellent Travel Agent. We were very pleased and had a great trip.

Sara & Alan Judd

I contacted Samantha to arrange a work trip to Melbourne for three days.
Co-ordinating 52 people’s flight requirements, appropriate accommodation and the bus transfers was no mean feat and Samantha handled it all like the professional she is. She made the process extremely smooth, providing individual itinerary and flight information for each traveller, answered every question as they came about and met everyone’s needs.
Samantha’s patience, knowledge, organisation and follow through meant that our trip was highly enjoyable, stress-free and everything went to plan. I thoroughly appreciate the effort Sam went to for us and will absolutely be using her for any future group bookings. I totally recommend you do too!
