What makes us stand out

GlobeNet Travel principals 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!

The best thing about the travel industry are the people and clients you work with, and the opportunity to travel and experience all of the fantastic products we sell.

Every cruise experience is precious. But so are all the destinations and people we visit along the way. For truly sustainable voyages, which future generations can also enjoy, everyone needs to play their part. That includes us, which is why we are actively involved in several sustainability initiatives as well as developement projects.

At Clean Cruising we have always held sustainability close to our heart. In fact, we created the world's first cruise sustainability program using our unique mapping technology to accurately calculate values. We then partnered with Carbon Neutral, a leading non-profit organisation, which has planted over 30 million native trees in Australia. The result: every cruise has an equivalent sustainability tree planting value for the benefit of concerned cruise goers.

Contributing to this program is an optional and voluntary choice offered to everyone who books with us. For just a few dollars extra, our great country (and the planet) will be a better place after your cruise.

We are also currently developing a strategy to halt the commercial harvesting of the Great Barrier Reef's coral. There are 59 operators licensed by the Queensland Government to mine 200 tons/year of rare, live and vulnerable coral for export. This practice is banned worldwide in regions such as the Philippines, Bali, Guam, Samoa, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and Florida.

While we greatly value our sustainability projects, we also recognise that many people from poorer countries need a helping hand. As a result, we have developed our own educational initiative and are a proud supporter of Médecins Sans Frontières Australia.

We commenced our educational initiative in 2001, by sponsoring school children in Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda. Since then, we have expanded our sponsorship to children from small villages in Samoa, Solomon Islands and Sabah. These projects are self-funded by our company, staff and friends.

Our commitment to the community extends beyond our current initiatives. Every year we try to add a project, aimed at helping future generations in our region and promoting friendship with our neighbours of all races and religions. If you are aware of a project where you think we could help feel free to drop us an email. We will also happily send you further details about our existing projects, upon request.
