Welcome, Karen! W e war mly welcome Karen Plunkett to our travel team at R ACT House. She has worked in the travel industry for 37 years, winning a variety of awards and ear ning the respect of clients and colleagues alike. Over the years she has built up a substantial knowledge base in travel -- and she never stops learning! Q: What do you like best about the travel industry? A: The opportunity to help people realise their dreams. Giving them the best advice I can to suit their needs. Q: What do you like about working here at RACT Travelworld? A: It is great to have the support of a large Tasmanian organisation with eight travel offices around the state, dedicated to providing the ultimate holiday experience to our R ACT members and clients. Q: What is your favourite destination and why? A: I love Hong Kong. It is an ever-changing city, a city of contrasts and a meeting point for the world. It has everything you could want -- dining, shopping, history, culture, entertainment and a magnificent location on that beautiful harbour. It is friendly and safe -- a perfect stopover on your way to Europe. Q: How many times have you travelled to Europe? A: I have been travelling to Europe all my adult life -- I have been more than 20 times and I love selling holidays to this amazing continent. Q: What tips do you have for people planning Europe for 2013? A: Don't hesitate -- get in early. Each year the early bird opportunities become more limited. They are good deals, but with limited availability. In these interesting economic times, it is difficult to predict if there will be further deals released in the new year. Earlybird Fares to Europe start from $1549.00* per person including taxes ex Melbour ne. *Conditions apply and are dependent on destination and seasonality Hobart 179-191 Murray Street Phone 6232 6455 Hobart Collins Street Shop 1, 110 Collins Street Phone 6222 9222 Rosny Park Rosny Mall 2 Bayfield Street Phone 6212 6777 Here, there, everywhere Are you a European Early Bird?
