Australia and Beyond Holidays (AABH) is Australia’s newest domestic wholesaler. AABH has an unique “twist” on selling domestic holidays.

Established over four years ago by Simon Bernardi former Head of Qantas Holidays and his partners, AABH is an inbound operator. The business also now focuses on a currently unfilled niche within the Australian travel industry, according to Bernardi.

Its Australian and New Zealand wholesale arm works with agents helping them earn more income from their bookings by providing competitive pricing on unique as well as mainstream itineraries, and offering Handmade Holidays, FIT online bookings, and groups and incentives.

As a boutique wholesaler, AABH works with select retail travel agents and consultants to sell domestic and New Zealand packages and journeys. AABH enjoys working with smaller numbers of agents to enable them to add more value to our customers by giving them more individual attention.

AABH is currently working with over 100 agents in Australia who have signed up as AABH domestic agents in the last three weeks.

“Whilst AABH offers a full range of competitively priced, hotels, activities, transfers on its online booking system, it is creating unique experiences is where we excel”, Bernardi said.

The company also seeks to assist travel agents by reviewing some itineraries for them, to ensure they are receiving maximum income.

Handmade Holidays

AABH’s unique experiences are developed by putting “handmade” holidays together for customers to their exact specifications.
The customer is the number one priority in the design of the handmade holiday, and the trip is designed based on customers’ budget and what type of experiences they want to have.

The company has the knowhow and experience to put the best Australia and New Zealand has to offer for your customers with the best team in the business.

AABH’s domestic trips cover all the areas of Australia that customers have wanted to visit but never had time. The current crisis gives the opportunity for customers to tick off their bucket list of places and experiences in Australia.

The great thing about the scale and diversity of Australia is there are so many different experiences people can have on all budgets.

Some amazing and diverse experiences on offer for customers include six-star glamping and luxury lodges and retreats in outback locations such as Kakadu, the Flinders Ranges, Uluru, Cape York and many more.

An example of where we can make itineraries different, is a recent trip where a group travelled to Cape York from Cairns. They did a couple days of heli fishing, catching monster barramundi and mud crabs and cooking and eating them on the beach, an experience which would have been truly unforgettable.

According to Bernardi, “AABH is different because with us its personal in the way we work with each of our customers to drive our mutual business”.
