A little about your business and you
I started my business 18 months ago but have been in the luxury travel industry for 15 years. We specialise in delivering exceptional travel experiences to individuals, families, couples and groups of friends. My Native's destination information is always creative, insightful and personal.
The coolest/best moment of your career so far
Organising a 12-month round-the-world sabbatical holiday of a lifetime
Who or what inspires you
We love...eating where the locals eat, hotels where the little things matter, travel apps written by locals, up-to-date destination information, hidden gems, intuitive guides who know when to speak and when to listen, originality, spotless cars and smart drivers who always arrive on time, service with a smile, details, details, details and native know-how.
What do you love most about your job?
Getting to know our clients and ensuring that their experience matches and exceeds their expectations. We're great listeners and - in our clients' words - "no question was too major or minor".
What's the most curious thing about your business?
The most curious thing about my business is that we don't believe luxury travel has to mean expensive and 5 star. We work with the finest, most decadent hotels in the world and the most rustic of hideaways; the common factor has to be fantastic service which can be found in the remotest parts of the world.
What's your top advice for couples getting married?
Last minute is so last year :) Book ahead and ensure better fares on flights and no compromises on your hotel choice. Many couples don't realise that Tour Operators offer more competitive rates on flights and hotels than booking direct. As well as saving you time, we can usually save you money - on your mini & mega moons! One example is that My Native can hold flights 11 months ahead of the travel date, guarantee the fare and payment is due 8 weeks prior to departure.
Sold on the idea of asking My Native to help with the honeymoon? Well, before you book those flights make sure you book your ticket to our 2019 show too where you can personally chat to Julie about your dreams!
