Philosophy

Travel & Lust was established to help source the niche, local and boutique businesses in the travel industry. With many targeting the luxury or discerning audience, we feel that there is definitely a gap in the market for those that want a high-end experience that is accessible and affordable. Our focus is to simply help promote these businesses, with a keen eye on local elements
