Managing Director / italktravel Townsville and Jetsetter Travel Ayr
Determined to bring expectational service in travel to Far North Queensland and beyond, Rane Reguson was only 19 when he got into the travel industry. Now aged 23, he’s the owner/operator of two successful agencies – one in Townsville (italktravel) and the other in Ayr (Jetsetter Travel).
“There’s never been a better time to travel, with costing in the market at its most competitive. I’m proud to have brought together a team of travel specialists who I consider to be at the forefront of the industry. We’re there for our clients 24/7,” Rane says.
Last month, Rane was nominated as Best Travel Agency Manager in the 2017 Australian Travel Awards and took out the Inaugural Emirates Scholarship a few years ago. Both prestigious accolades have cemented his reputation in the travel industry.
“My weeks are a bit hectic as I work between the two offices with half of the week in Ayr and the other half in Townsville,” Rane says. “It’s great that the Townsville Airport is launching new and exciting destinations, which provides some fantastic opportunities for our customers – and it’s great for the Townsville economy too. The people of Townsville have been so welcoming. I’ve only been in Townsville for six months but I’ve already met so many dynamic people and have made many new friends.”
Rane has travelled extensively, experienced diverse cultures and embraced many once-in-a-lifetime experiences, which gives him an edge when creating inspirational travel packages for his clients.
“Once you’re hooked on travelling and understand its true power, it’s amazing how much you value experience over things,” he says. “Success is no accident. It’s hard work, sacrifice and, most of all, a love of what you do.”
