“A TRAVEL AGENCY THAT WILL MAKE YOU GLOBALLY RESPONSIBLE”
For 12 years and counting, Travel with a Cause (TWAC) has been using the profits made from its clients bookings to send computers to schools in Zambia, saving a reef and rainforest from being demolished in Fiji, to purchasing mosquito nets and Lifestraws to send with our clients travelling to developing countries to keep them safe whilst there, and then to leave behind as a legacy with the local people to now keep them safe.
Managing Director Jane Johnston began her career in travel in 1981 with Ansett Holidays. In 1995 she decided to embark on her own agency and because of her knowledge called it “Know How Travel” with the first Australian online travel site Australian Discount Travel & Tours. It wasn’t until a trip to Matangi Island, Fiji with the Fiji Tourist board that TWAC began.
Remote Matangi Island, (a 2 hour plane ride from Nadi, half an hour 4WD to a beach launch plus another half hour by high power speed boat) struck a soft spot in Jane’s heart as she learnt the only school in the area had been decimated by a cyclone and had only been sent one bag of cement to rebuild. With a vision to help the Matangi Island community to rebuild the school, Jane set up the not for profit accredited agency Travel with a Cause.
Up to the present day TWAC continues its philanthropic policy and being a successful travel agency. Offering a range of travel products including: international and domestic packages, corporate travel, volunteer programs, Workations (get paid to travel) and group travel.
TWAC has a desire to provide exceptional travel and online travel services, no matter what the requirements, whilst also giving competitive prices. You can make a difference to their cause by booking your travel with them, or by simply giving a tax deductible donation.
