Cruising Plus owners, Scott and Ingrid, have had many years working within the travel industry and believed back in 2004 that cruise holidays were going to be the big growth area in Australian travel. The truth is they didn’t think it would grow as much as it did and it still continues to grow year on year.

What started as a home based office grew from a part time business into a full time job. Scott, who had been in the IT Industry for 20+ years including Travel IT, decided with his passion for cruising it was time for a career change and left IT to be the main driving force behind Cruising Plus. With this came his thirst for knowledge and he soon completed his studies to become a Master Accredited Cruise Agent with CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association Australasia). Ingrid is also a Master Accredited Cruise Agent.

In 2011 and looking for a further challenge, Scott opened a retail shop front in the town of Strathalbyn, SA and took on an additional business name of Fleurieu Travel to show that they offered a complete travel agency service even though they specialised in cruising. Fleurieu Travel was an exciting venture which continued to grow and after 3 years has now relocated to an office based in Victor Harbor, SA.

Cruising Plus offers their clients a variety of ways to deal with them and can adapt to whatever their clients are comfortable with. Whether it is via email or phone, an appointment with Scott in the office or visiting a client at their home or business at a time that is convenient to them, Cruising Plus is always flexible and pride themselves on good old fashioned professional customer service.

Although Cruising Plus specialises in cruising, as this is what they are truly passionate about, they do offer the complete travel service, including all types of international and domestic arrangements as well as travel insurance. They can customise all your travel arrangements into one convenient package, ensuring that you can focus on simply enjoying your traveling experience.

Cruising Plus is a member of ATAC (Australian Travel Agents Co-operative) and this ensures they have access to the best travel products, at the best industry rates so that they can pass the savings onto you. With low overheads and industry knowledge on how to find the best deals, Fleurieu Travel incorporating Cruising Plus really is your one stop travel shop for everything from transfers, airfares, hotels, tours, side-trips and cruises.
