5Firstly, I would like to give my thanks to Marie for helping me out with my troublesome requests. I thoroughly enjoyed the trip. It was excellent. Queenstown is a really beautiful place. No complaints whatsoever. However; this is just my two cents' worth. Maybe add a places/ things to do list besides the activities at the back of the itinerary? Overall, two thumbs up. Will not hesitate to do it again!

Frequently Asked Questions
If I want check availability on this short break what do I do?
Relaxing Journeys needs to confirm availability and provide you with an emailed quote based on the number of people travelling & room type. Select your start date on the right and complete our 'Request Quote' form and one of our tour consultants will be in touch within 24 hours (during business hours).
Isn't it cheaper just to book it all ourselves?
You won't pay more by booking your short break holiday with Relaxing Journeys. We have access to discounted industry rates and special deals, only available to those in the travel trade. So the amount we make on each short break, is the difference between these rates and retail rates that you would pay if you booked it all yourself. Of course, you also get peace of mind that all is organised professionally and you get our fantastic service thrown in! There will be occasions where a property may release a 'walk in' deal that may better our quote, however our prices are the best available at the time of booking.
What happens after I 'Check Availability'?
Your dedicated tour consultant will email you through a quote. If it looks good, then full payment is required to confirm the booking (within 45 days) or a deposit of $100 per person is required outside this period. This must be paid by credit card (Visa or Mastercard only). We do not charge credit card fees on our short break packages. If the properties listed in the holiday package are unavailable at this time, we will provide you with alternatives until you are happy.

Can I book things like internal flights & car hire to go with my short break if it's not included?
Some short break packages do not include (or may not require) a hire car, or internal flights.
