Why use us?

Viv's Travel Bug is a boutique travel agency that brings personal experience to African travel; numerous visits to India, and other Asian countries: exploration in both South and North America; and support for many hundreds of students heading overseas.

Situated on the south coast of New South Wales, we cater for many local clients, but we also assist travellers from throughout Australia, New Zealand and even as far afield as the U.S. and Europe to gain the benefit of the expertise we have to offer.

Our aim is to provide sound, friendly advice, good service, and continued support for all those who come to us - and we operate on the 'boomerang theory' in that we would like our clients to return to us again, and again.

The business is owned by Viv Craig who has been in the industry for over 20 years. Viv has personally travelled to over 100 countries and she has a passion for adventurous travel to 'different' places. In recent years she has visited India several times; travelled the Trans-Siberian Railway; cruised on the Nile and Hooghly Rivers; hiked in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco; lazed on the coral beaches of the Maldives; watched the gauchos of Argentina at work; observed the wildlife of the Okavango Delta in Botswana; explored Namibia; experienced the back roads of Italy; and visited such iconic sites as Petra (in Jordan), Masada (in Israel) Abu Simbel (in Egypt) and Angkhor Wat (Cambodia).

Her expertise (see Awards) is Africa, Asia (India in particular), South & Central America, and New Zealand, as well as the knowledge gained from having sent several hundred GAP students (including her own children) on exciting European holidays. Viv promotes 'sustainable' travel and eco-tourism whenever she can, having seen such projects at first hand.

The agency has existed in Bowral & the Mollymook/Ulladulla district for over 25 years. When she bought the business Viv wanted to project a new image, one which reflected her intense interest in travel but specifically 'travel with a difference'.

Viv has had a regular fortnightly radio segment on travel as well as writing editorials for local magazines. She attends travel expos to keep up to date with opportunities and this includes African roadshows and visits to GITB, the huge Indian travel industry exhibition, as well as many regional Indian travel marts.

Viv has been joined in the business by her husband, Peter, who has travelled extensively with her and who has had experiences of his own, leading tour groups to the United Kingdom, Holland, France, Turkey, Argentina, Barbados, South Africa, Botswana & Zimbabwe.
