Trinity Hastwell - Managing Director - Senior Travel Designer – USA Specialist – CLIA Master Cruise Consultant

Frewville Office (McLaren Vale Office by appointment)

Trin joined the family business more than a decade ago after completing her Bachelor of Management (Marketing) at the University of South Australia.  Travel definitely runs in the Hastwell blood and Trin couldn’t imagine doing anything else.  

Having travelled extensively through Europe, Asia and the Americas, Trin has visited every continent except for Antarctica – but don’t worry, we’re sure she’ll get there soon!  This year she is off to explore the Carolinas (her 8th trip to the USA), Cuba, the Bahamas and South America.

Trin is also a Director on the Board of Travellers Choice, being elected in 2013. 

“When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money.”

Mark Hastwell - Groups Manager

Mark opened the doors of Hastwell Travel & Cruise back in 1991. Originally set up because of his love of travelling it has since grown into well respected and very experienced travel agency with a philosophy of providing great service by knowledgeable staff. Mark has travelled extensively throughout the world and still does!
Mark escorts a small group of likeminded travellers each year and has visited places like Cuba, Eastern Europe, South Africa, Israel, and South America. Mark’s love of food & wine often takes him to places like the Napa Valley, Stellenbosch and the French wine growing areas and he is always on the lookout for something new to try.

“Life’s too short to drink bad wine, and too short not to take holidays often.”

Brianna Edwards - Senior Travel Designer – Europe Specialist – CLIA Cruise Accredited

Frewville Office

By the time she was twenty one, Brianna had embarked on two solo travel missions taking her to Europe, U.K, Canada, USA, Cuba & New Zealand. Combining her love of travel with a career, Brianna joined the Hastwell Travel family in 2010 where the travel bug continued to bite!  From Romania to Iceland and everywhere in between, to the jungles of Borneo and the elephants of Chiang Mai- Bri adds a well-travelled element to our team!

Next year, she will be in the USA & Canada for the third time to try her hand at not crashing a snow mobile…watch this space!

The world's a big place- that’s why I want to see all of it…twice.

Scott Davey – Senior Travel Designer - Cruise Expert - CLIA Master Cruise Consultant

Scott Davey

McLaren Vale Office

Starting later than most in the travel industry after a 20 year career in IT, Scott has now been in the travel industry for more than 15 years. Scott has a real passion for cruising having sailed on more than 35 cruises and is a CLIA Master cruise consultant. Whether it is extended days at sea on a re-positioning cruise across the Pacific or the gentle meandering down the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers from Amsterdam to Budapest; if it involves a ship, Scott will try to be on it.

Regardless of where he travels Scott loves to explore his destinations and he goes to find the hidden treasures which nobody else may know about. He can then pass on his discoveries to his clients. 

Next on the bucket list (yes, he has one) is the sights of South America and a river that needs to be cruised.
