Aspire Supported Holidays was founded by the company’s Director, Simon Crethar, whose cousin has a disability but loves to travel.
As a travel agent tasked with booking his cousin’s holidays, Simon noted how few travel providers had the capability to cater for travellers with disabilities. For many providers and destinations, it was all too hard.
Simon swiftly envisaged a travel company that would overcome these challenges and open up a whole new world for travellers with disabilities, and Aspire Supported Holidays was born.
With the generous support and backing of respected travel industry figure Penny Spencer and dedicated support staff, Aspire Supported Holidays is now the market leader in assisted holidays and travel.
The Aspire Supported Holidays team is led by Simon Crethar, an experienced travel agent with years of hands-on experience with guests with disabilities. Simon is capably supported by highly qualified support personnel who thrive on creating detailed, high quality, experiential and fun holidays within an exacting framework of Aspire guidelines and policies.
Aspire’s years of delivering quality assisted holidays have given the business a highly regarded reputation within the disability Industry. We are recognised for our integrity, value for money, caring service and high staffing ratios.
We are totally committed to the individual needs of our clients whilst providing them with unforgettably fun holidays and travel experiences.
Aspire Supported Holidays is backed and powered by the Spencer Group of Companies – a fully licensed travel agency group, a member of the Australian Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA), and the AFTA Travel Accreditation Scheme (ATAS). ATAS is an accreditation scheme that sets the benchmark of quality for the travel industry.
ATAS travel agents have met strict standards and criteria in order to become nationally accredited.
