Luxury & Adventure Travel Expert

Sydney Australia
Sydney Australia

I have been a Travel Consultant now for over 30 years. All of the travel knowledge that I have acquired has given me insight into helping you plan your Dream Vacation.

Not only do I have experience helping clients book their holidays, but I also have an extensive amount of travel experience with several major tour and cruises companies. Most recently I have traveled to: Australia,Tahiti, group tours in Ireland and Costa Rica and explored Canada with Rocky Mountaineer.

When planning a vacation it's always about the fine details - taking the time to listen to what my clients wants and needs are for their special holiday. I pride myself on taking the time to explain the highlights of a destination and provide crucial information about documentation and insurance, which is commonly overlooked when booking a holiday on your own. 

As a result of working in the industry for as long as I have, I truly recognize the value in booking your vacation with a travel consultant. I am consistently researching, training, and familiarizing myself with worldwide destinations and various travel styles in order to make sure that I am providing you with the most accurate information. My goal is to see your holiday through from start to finish - not only am I available to help you plan your trip, but I will also be available while you are away and when you return.

I have always found this career to be exciting and very rewarding.  I look forward to my clients returning from their holidays and sharing their experiences with me.

Over the years, I have booked a variety of different styles of holidays for a range of clientele. I specialize in booking Luxury Vacations and Adventure-Based Group Tours or Personalized Trips.


I look forward to hearing from you to start planning your next vacation and build a lifelong friendship.

Debbie can make it happen for you!

Reviewed By GilRob - Brandon, Manitoba | Traveled to Europe
We have benefited from Debbie's assistance for about fifteen years. She has assisted us with selecting suitable resorts for short term vacations as well as arranging every detail on longer term adventures personalized to our wishes to be on our own but secure in what we are doing and where we are going. She knows the importance of helping us feel secure and comfortable with our choices. We have never experienced a bad choice of hotel/resort or a complication with the arrangements she has made for us. She is always willing to answer questions, follow-up on requests, and pursue what sometimes might seem to many to be unimportant concerns we may have. And, when you get home she will be the first to contact you and ask how things went!
She is our "GEM"!

Newbies gain confidence

Reviewed By Fearless seniors - Rivers, Manitoba | Traveled to Barbados ~ Caribbean
We have had Debbie as travel agent for four years, and have been extremely satisfied with her services. In the beginning, as travel "newbies", we certainly appreciated her experience and insight into what our preferences would likely be. Our trips have involved an overnight stay in Toronto, and Debbie made reservations for us right then and there. We always leave her office feeling confident that all details have been well arranged for a worry-free holiday.

Well looked after

Reviewed By Dougie - Brandon Manitoba Canada | Traveled to Montego Bay ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
My wife and I were undecided where we wanted to vacation in November 2017.
Debbie was patient and responded to all my questions with her personal insight as well as information she had gathered from her other clients and co-workers.
We decided to take her advice and go to the Seagarden resort in Montego bay.
The resort was a little quirky, but Debbie had prepared us for that.
There were no negative surprises.
We had a very nice trip.
I appreciated Debbie double checking all my paperwork with me to make sure everything was spelled correctly and all names were correct.
I knew that check in would go smoothly , and it did.
This is a service I don't receive when I book a vacation online.
Overall dealing with Debbie and McPhail Travel has been a pleasant experience and we will be back.
I have recommended Debbie as a contact for my co-workers that have asked about my trip.

Cruise with Princess Cruises

We have been clients of Debbie's for more than 20 years and have have lots of great trips. We have followed her wherever she has worked and have been very happy with the service she has provided. Nothing is too much trouble and she always does thorough research. We have always been extremely impressed by Debbie's attention to detail and how she takes the time to be sure we understand everything.

We would not consider using any other agent as long as Debbie is working..
We have had Cruises to Caribbean, Alaska, Baltic and Mediterranean and two river boat cruises in European as well as many trips to the UK.

Many Vacations

Reviewed By Sherry - Reston, MB | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Debbie Hetherington has been helping me with my travel planning for the past 3 years. For Europe, Mexico, Disneyworld, Costa Rica, and soon the Great Wall of China. She is always able to find me great destinations and resorts to stay at. I have also planned many multiple family travel plans with her with us leaving from different airports and all her hard work has got us there together to enjoy the vacations. She has always been there to think of the things we would not have even known we needed to do. Arranging travel insurance and transportation, tours and finding the best possible flights. Calling us personally when she finds out our flights have been cancelled and letting us know she is finding or has already found us a connecting flight to switch to. She always calls after our trips to make sure we had no issues and whether we enjoyed our stay. Debbie has been an incredible asset to me and will continue to be for all my future travel plans.

I would highly recommend Debbie to take care of your travel requirements and I am sure you will be happy to have her as your travel agent.
