I know who my new travel agent will be in the future!!" – Jodie  

"Many thanks to Kylee and her crew at Frank Ford Travel for everything that you have done for us during this extremely difficult time. Who ever thought a pandemic would bring the world to its knees. To say the whole travel industry has been hit hard is a huge understatement. We booked our dream holiday to the USA last year, we never anticipated that our international borders would be closed. Kylee has handled our booking so professionally and efficiently. Nothing has been too much of a bother, all was done in a friendly, informative and caring way. When our planes start to fly  again we will go back to Kylee for two reasons. Firstly because she has been loyal and supportive to us and secondly  because they honestly are Ballarats best travel agent. Has been such a stressful and difficult time, thank goodness we chose Frank  Ford Travel. Thank goodness we didn’t have to fix this mess up by ourselves, they are the ones sitting for hours on their phones while we relax. A good travel agent is worth their weight in gold. We were so lucky to have you Kylee! Wishing you guys all the best. Thank you." – Waight family

"Hi Kylee,I did reflect on the figures after I had left you yesterday so thanks for your explanation. I know you will look after us in the future so all is quite OK. My perspective is that you are quite entitled to have your booking fee given not only was the original booking made but you then had to go to the trouble of working thru the messy and time consuming refund process on our behalf. So, all good and know we are most appreciative for all you have done. It was lovely meeting you in person yesterday and chatting about all sorts of things. We will be returning again to formulate new trips as soon as the travel situation improves. Hopefully very soon." – John

"Hi Kylee, thanks for your lovely message and update on our Qantas flights. Looks like we will be waiting a few months yet which is just the way it is. We are waiting for the Covid vaccine to be ready! The poor world just needs to heal. What an absolute shocker of a year (like l am telling you something you don’t know!). I don’t know anyone that hasn’t done it tough. You guys are firmly in our thoughts. We hope you are keeping safe, healthy and strong. Better days are coming. Can’t wait to re-book with you. Take care" – Kathryn

"Travel will come, the dreaming hasn’t stopped and the lists are going longer and longer .. some of us are saving our pennies for something. We have no illusion about the many dark months ahead but Linda and I both agreed, when the world has healed then we will return to Frank Ford Travel, again and again.I should add that Linda is helping lead her nursing team on the COVID-19 ward at Monash Medical Centre. She collapses into the couch most nights, exhausted after a day wearing PPE. Damn proud of her work, don’t believe the rubbish in the commercial media or self-righteous covidiots, we have the best chief medical officer and wonderful teams working across the state determined to beat this viral beast into oblivion. It’s really serious, do take care of your family and loved ones." – Roland

"Hi girls, I have put my vote in for you. You have organised some  great holidays for us over the years and we thank you very much. We are so glad that we have done so much and travelled so far in the past few years , as travelling in the future will be very different. We will be staying in Australia from now on and if we can get to Bargara each year we will be happy. Bill continuing to make slow improvements , but still a long way to go .Hope you are all well." –  Marj & Bill
