I'm a travel expert in ...
... South Pacific Islands, Australia, UK Europe, USA & Canada

I became a World Traveller by ...
... starting off at the bottom of the ladder & slowly working my way to the top with some travelling to various destinations along the way.

My best travelling experience is ...
... My whirlwind 14 days in the UK/Europe just touching on 4 countries - so much to see & doing Europe and I have barely scraped the surface.

I never travel without ...
... Travel Insurance - this is so important for when you least expect it. I have a relative who had an accident in Canada and is now paralysed. Without travel insurance there is the possibility that her family may have lost everything in order to pay for her care whilst overseas.

My favourite client's story is ...
... They all have fantastic stories to share about their experiences and I get satisfaction knowing I planned it and it all went smoothly.

Carla has been in the industry for 12 years and still incredibly passionate about it. She started at Denise Tindle United Travel in 2006, progressing from office junior to purchasing the business in 2014.

Today, Carla also operates a 2nd division of the business ‘South Pacific Weddings’ that specialises in organising your perfect island wedding, having recently been to Fiji and Rarotonga again to get up to speed with these two popular wedding destinations. Carla’s expertise is second to none & she loves how every day is different and that no two clients are ever the same.

Her biggest focus at the moment is growing her business remotely from home, while raising her three children - Blake, Ellie and Levi.

Where has Carla travelled to: South Pacific – Fiji (including cruise), Cook Islands (Rarotonga and Aitutaki), Tahiti, Vanuatu, Samoa, Australia (Gold Coast, Sydney/Blue Mountains, Melbourne, Cairns & Port Douglas), Brunei, Borneo, Europe (Italy, France, Switzerland), England and Cruise. With many more places on the bucket list when the kids are old enough to join her and her husband on their adventures.
