Our History

GlobeNet Travel commenced operations in 1994 as a Brisbane-based American Express agency, expanding to become one of the largest independent travel agencies in Australia today..

With a philosophy that one has to experience it to sell it, our consultants quickly became authorities on resorts locally and expanding world-wide, while winning top awards along the way. In 2005 we became the inaugural Hall of Fame agency for Tourism Queensland's Sunlover Holidays and since then have also been Club Med Australasia's top agency, every year!

Increasingly now and on invitation, we attend international trade shows and cruise advisory boards, promoting the best interests of our clients and local travel industry partners.

When we launched Clean Cruising in 2007 as our specialist cruise division, our goal was simple - to help Australians "Find Their Dream Cruise Faster", BUT always at the best available daily price! How we do this always evolves but we focus on three ways to achieve it by...

 • Showcasing the world's cruise ships (AND where they go) as never seen before
 • Creating the fastest website with innovative ways to research your cruise

Having won countless awards in Australia and internationally, our innovative approach to cruising has not gone unnoticed.

In October 2016 we were honoured with Helloworld Australia's top award for general travel while earlier, in February, the Cruise Lines International Association Inc. recognised us as their Australian "Online Agency of the Year" specifically for cruise. This award is judged by leading cruise lines on efforts to promote cruising, consultant training and growth in customer bookings.

Last year Luxury Travel Magazine readers voted us into their "Gold List", which features Australia's leading luxury travel agencies.We were also the only cruise agency becoming "Agency of the Year" finalists in the AFTA National Travel Industry Awards, voted on by Australia's travel operators.

While we are proud of our accomplishments, the feedback from our happy customers is what truly puts a spring in our step. Our Facebook page today has a comment which is priceless to us all... "Hello to Sarah. Faultless service over 5 years and 20 cruises. Best service ever - in any industry I have dealt with!!" - Warwick D. 25 Sep 14.

Thanks to all of our wonderful clients for your tremendous support!
