Auckland-born and raised, Claire studied business at AUT before starting out her career in travel at the age of 19, working for Rosenbluth International in 2002. Since then, she has worked across multiple areas within the industry. Savvy and well-rounded, Claire jumped at the chance to work within the very specialised group capacity at STA Travel in 2011, utilising her flair for logistics and overseeing the movements of some very large groups travelling to all corners of the world.
Originally from the North Shore, Elise took off on her OE after high school which turned into a 5 year adventure covering 19 countries. After years of travelling with her Aussie partner, she has discovered a passion for travel, people, the ocean and food! These experiences made her realise that she wanted to help others see the world, inspiring her to join STA Travel and help young people plan their own escapades. Having started off at our store on Queen Street, she now brings her years of experience to the B2B & Groups team.
Born in the small town of Ruawai, Nicole's family moved to Auckland and discovered their love of camper vanning, taking them all over New Zealand, Australia and the US! After having worked as a professional makeup artist, Nicole realised her underlying passion for travel and desire to share this with others. She is excited to now help others start their adventure!
