About Williment Travel
MORE THAN 50 YEARS IN THE GAME
WHERE IT ALL STARTEDWilliment Travel was founded in 1967 by former All Blacks fullback, Mick Williment, whose vision (after hanging up his rugby boots) was to deliver travel dreams to Kiwis. Mick was a high achiever with great attention to detail - living by the mantra "perfect preparation prevents poor performance". He always strived for greatness but he understood and enjoyed the great desire for Kiwis to travel and have fun. Soon enough, his company became known for the Williment All Blacks supporter tours and so began a benchmark of excellence in sports travel.
WILLIMENT TODAYWilliment Travel maintains a leading presence in the travel industry offering a broad selection of sporting events, including motorsport, tennis, rugby league, rugby sevens, horse racing, netball, cricket, golf and tennis. As the company operates in its 52nd year in the industry, Williment Travel still lives by Mick Williment's ethos having earned the enviable and unrivalled reputation for being New Zealand's premier sports tour specialist.
Williment Travel is owned by Helloworld Travel Ltd (HLO), a leading Australian & NZ travel distribution company comprising retail travel franchise operations, destination management services, and corporate and online operations.
