Working with Us

Down Under Endeavours handcrafts dream vacations to some of the most exotic, rejuvenating and exciting places on earth. We are not simply a “travel agent” and our travelers are people who don’t want to simply “go on vacation.” Our travelers are adventurous, romantic and individual, and so are their excursions and we are the travel experts that can help them get there. They seek an authentic experience, want the road less traveled yet want to see it all and want a travel company who will do all of this, plus provide value for money. It’s our job to fulfill all those needs.

How We Work With You

You give Down Under Endeavours some basic information about travel style, destinations of interest, and time of year to vacation. We match a travel agent who best fits your style and needs. Read more…

The Basics

Founded in 1998 by Australian native Corinne Goodman, Down Under Endeavours is a premier luxury travel agency staffed with well-respected experts in South Pacific locales, culture and history of this magnificent corner of the world.  She started as a travel agency specializing only in Australia, but has continued to add locations in the South Pacific.  We bring the same attention to detail and authenticity to our newest destinations – South Africa and Thailand.

We Are “More Than A Travel Agent”

It’s the nicest compliment we receive from our clients, and we hear it often. (And you can read more client testimonials.) We understand that if you’re going to work with a travel professional, you need someone who has the insider knowledge that you could never find on the Internet, no matter how many hours you spent searching.   Read more…

Our Business Model

We are commonly asked how we make money. Nothing to hide here. Our revenue stems from our partnership with tours, hotels and travel providers, based on the volume of people we send to them. Unlike a traditional travel agency, we do not charge you a fee. In fact, our long-standing relationships give us buying power and savings we pass on to you, along with exclusive personal touches.   Read more…

What We’re Not

What we don’t do is consult for a fee and leave you to try and secure the same quality of experience. We are a full service company and we know our destinations like we know our own neighborhoods. We don’t send you to the Great Barrier Reef off Cairns, Australia in January knowing visibility will be poor and there is a risk for a tropical storm. We work with your dream vacation checklist and offer you possible alternatives, and explain why. Ultimately the decision is yours, however, you will be well informed at the time you decide.  Read more…

Meet The Team

Our team consists of expert travel planners, passionate about good, old-fashioned service, and for exploring the world’s exotic destinations. We travel overseas every year, to ensure you have the most up to date unbiased information. We’re based in Chicago, but travel the world to find the best of the best for our clients.  Read more…
