Thank you for your understanding during this period of transition and for your continued patronage. We look forward to a future full of growth, possibilities and adventures together.
Why was Murdoch Travel sold?
Murdoch Travel was sold as a result of the untimely passing of Doug Murdoch back in June. It had long been Doug's wish that Jeff would continue on his legacy.
Jeff is Doug's son, right?
No. Jeff was often mistaken for Doug's son. Jeff and Doug had an excellent working relationship and friendship but were not related. Doug's children do not have a role in the operations at Murdoch Travel.
Who is Jeff Clarke? Is the agency in good hands?
Yes. Jeff has over 15 years travel industry experience. He is certified by Travel Industry Coucil of Onatrio to manage a agency according to their standards. Jeff has been to numerous continents and countries, absorbing knowledge and experieces in order to better serve his clients. Also, Jeff is responsible for coordinating numerous Destination Weddings making a once in a lifetime experience truly special. Jeff continues to actively travel the globe in order to gain first hand knowledge that he can pass on to you.
Will you be changing the name?
No. We will remain Murdoch Travel. Our goal going forward is to grow the name that Doug worked so hard to build.
Will you be moving?
No. Our home is in the heart of the Kozlov Centre. We have no intention of moving any time soon.
How do I reach you?
Our phone numbers, email and web addresses will remain the same.
