About Joel

Global Experience. Personal Touch.


Joel Bond Travels

Ever feel like you need a vacation from your vacation? If so, then you're among the ranks of holiday-makers and travellers who wish they had a 6-month vacation... twice a year! So perhaps a little help in planning your next getaway is in order. Thankfully, you’ve found Joel Bond Travels.

With my mixed experiences as a former flight attendant, adventure sport instructor, and international school teacher, you’re in good hands. Plus, having lived in 4 different countries and travelled to 60+ more over the last 20 years, I have developed contacts in scores of destinations around the globe.

When you use my travel services, you are getting a one-of-kind, custom-made travel experience that will be the envy of all your friends. I have three reasons why:


Travelling with me is simple. When you travel with me, I’ve got the logistics covered so you don’t have to worry about navigating public transportation, figuring out opening hours and entrance fees, or deciphering a foreign language menu. In addition, my one-bag packing list will cover all the essentials for your time away with as little as a single carry-on bag – meaning you’ll have more time to explore without carting the kitchen sink along.


The quality of your time away is just as important as quantity of time. Travelling with me is actually experiencing your destination – not simply touring. No coach bus tours, character-less box hotels, or corporate chain restaurants here. While big name tour companies can broker bargain rates, you get what you pay for: cheap experiences with abbreviated visits to crowded attractions at peak hours with far too much time in the gift shop and virtually no interaction with local residents. Engaging with your destination reaps greater rewards than simply clogging your phone with thousands of hurriedly snapped photographs.


My approach builds in plenty of ‘exploration’ time – allowing you to move at your own pace and discover back alleyways, neighbourhood markets, and corner cafés that make travel so exciting. Book your travel with me, and your getaway will be one-of-a-kind. No more trawling through hundreds of package tours that miss-out half the sites you wish to see; I'll work with you to tailor-make an itinerary with the stops that are most important to you. Avoid the tour bus with droning commentary, and instead find a local guide with interesting stories to tell. Wander away from the high-priced tourist zones, only to discover a district with more local flair. You want your precious time away to be yours — not someone else’s.

Simply. Travel. Better. These three small words are at the heart of what I do. Enquire now, and let me help you simply travel better, too.
