Travelling as a coeliac should still be fun! glutenfree travel was born after Reho Travel’s Managing Director, Karsten Horne, took his family on a trip to India in January 2006. His wife Michelle returned with what they thought was a dire case of Delhi belly, but she was eventually diagnosed as a coeliac. Since her diagnosis, Karsten started researching travel options for a weekend away and realised there wasn’t a lot of information out there! If a weekend in Sydney proved to be difficult to plan – imagine a month in Central America!
glutenfree travel is located within the leisure division of Reho Travel’s head office in Melbourne. Several glutenfree travel staff are themselves living on gluten-free diets, and all our staff have friends or family with coeliac disease. We’re very experienced and well travelled, and we want to make it easy for you to travel too … anywhere! Travelling gluten free is more than just a meal request in a flight booking, but most travel agents stop there. It’s about where to fly to, where to stay, and of course most importantly – where to eat! It’s about making sure your whole trip is a gluten free experience. Meal requests in the flight booking are the start of what we offer, not the end of our service.

Having clearly stated and promoted values within our organisation, by which all team members are held accountable, is the key to our business. These values form the framework within which all major decisions are made and they provide a strong benchmark and sounding board against which any potential disagreement or conflict may ultimately be measured and resolved. The resulting consistency of action and the equitable nature by which decisions are made, means that there is a greater likelihood of the development of a harmonious, high performance team. There is substantial evidence to support the view that a happy team environment of committed and aligned people leads directly to the greater likelihood of outstanding customer service delivery.

Reho Travel is committed to influencing the entire travel industry to consider the whole supply chain. We would like to see an industry where customers are choosing an airline for its low fuel consumption, a hotel in the developing world for its labour practices, and a tour company that involves the local community, booking them all with a travel agency that has the awareness and experience to guide them toward suppliers that have a positive impact on the world.
We are focused on living our purpose and giving back where we believe it is needed most. Our focus will always be giving at home, but with travel being the name of our game, and our staff having heartfelt connections in different countries around the world we look to extend our charitable reach to the global community as well.
In addition to Rehope, our Community Bank in Malawi, we strive to select charity partners that are aligned to our teams values. To aid this, we request staff input to identify potential organisations to support. We then conduct an in-depth assessment of each nomination to create a shortlist of potential partners. First and foremost, this assessment takes into consideration whether the charitable organisation is aligned with Reho’s vision, mission and goals. We then factor in survey results, organisation values, operational and financial performance. Possible partners must have a Deductible Gift Recipient status with the Australian Taxation Office, should be non-political and have a significant effect on a niche segment of the community. The team then vote on the shortlist and a partnership is formed.
As a company whose income is derived from travel, needless to say when there is a disaster of any kind in any country, we aim to assist the local community get back on their feet where we can. Whether at home or abroad, in all cases of emergency we give via established aid organisations with proven, effective activities on the ground in the impacted area.
