My name is Elvi and I have a 32-year travel industry career which started in Corporate and Group Travel in Sydney in 1991 after having received the sole travel scholarship to Williams Business College in 1990 where I completed my Diploma in Travel and Tourism.
After several years looking after the travel needs for Blue Chip companies and a stint as team leader in both Brisbane and Sydney, I made the move back to Wollongong in 1998 and have been working in the local travel industry since then, having joined the Figtree Travel Centre team in November 2022.
I take great pride in my work and strive to provide the most efficient and friendly service to my customers, many of which have been repeat clientele for several years. I have a good knowledge of airfares, destinations and travel products and a vast experience in both Corporate and Leisure Travel.
I have travelled to Fiji, New Zealand and the Cook Islands in the South Pacific, Bali/Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea and China in Asia, several places in North America including Hawaii, the UK, France, Italy, Serbia and Hungary in Europe and Egypt & the UAE in the Middle East. Recently I have experienced both Carnival and Princess cruises and am looking forward to expanding my cruise experiences! My favourite destination was Egypt, which was fascinating, but I truly love Europe in every way. There is so much history, culture, architecture, and amazing food to enjoy.
My heritage is Hungarian, and I can speak and write the language and I’m married to a Fijian, so I have a multi-cultural family. I love meeting and helping people from all different cultures and look forward to helping you with your travel needs.
