Need a car? Try our Rainbow Connections

Ezy Rentals (Cars & Campas) has got New Zealand covered, and Red Spot Car Rentals is the hire company of choice when driving around Australia. Why are these companies the fastest growing rental companies in NZ and AUS? Attitude!

When I left my mobile in the glove box of my cute little Ezy car in Wellington, they quickly couriered it to me back in Sydney.

When I had a problem with my credit card bond at the Hertz counter in Cairns, I was turned away, no matter that I'm a Gold Club member and have a corporate card for Rainbow Tourism. I went next door to the Red Spot counter, and Hollie quickly got approval for me, sympathetic to someone in the travel industry.

Old fashioned service and can-do attitude by Red Spot and Ezy Car earned these companies my respect and loyalty. So now you, too, can book with the best, by clicking on the icons on our home page, rainbowtourism.com. Safe driving!

Lemonkind: Lemon Aid for Dykes Down Under


This wonderful new woman's site is the newest Rainbow tourism affiliate. If you find travel articles naming a Rainbow Tour or Rainbow Place, you can book that accommodation online directly from the Lemonkind site. Shortly, they will publish a list of woman-only and woman-owned accommodation in Australia and New Zealand for your next getaway with your special lemon.

This is a great site to contribute your travel stories, so please take a look and spread the word. Not just for travel info, there is other vital info of interest to Aussie dames.

Girlfest Getaways: Reef & Rainforest Retreats


Do you need some R&R before or after the long Australia Day weekend GIRLFEST event? No worries, we have thought ahead about traditional recovery parties - and come up with some deals for women travelling from far and wide for this event.

If you're headed to Queensland, why not go up early or stay over to explore the rest of the state? I highly recommend Cairns and Port Douglas. .. already known for post Mardi Gras recovery parties and Women's Week activities...and soon to be famous for post Girlfest Getaways!

Whether you want a romantic, quiet retreat or to be active with day trips to the reef or rainforest, don't miss out on these exclusive Rainbow Tourism deals. Just hop on a plane , and inside of two hours (from Brisbane) you can be laying by the pool and sipping on bubbly with your significant other or group of friends at the mountaintop Mai Tai Resort or at the woman-owned and operated Pink Flamingo.

I can personally vouch for the relaxed atmospshere, spectacular sunsets, and cordial hospitality offered by the guys at Mai Tai. Andre & Anthony want to share their slice of heaven with you and yours...Their Bali-style boutqiue accommodation is for 8 maximum, so four lucky couples can have the place all to themselves for 3 nights on the last 3 nights of January! The Rainbow Deal includes a 4wd safari and a snorkeling adventure, so you get to experience both the reef and rainforest. You must book by 24 December, so book now and put a voucher in her Christmas stocking!

If a cool exotic mountaintop is not your idea of bliss, you can choose to be in Port, as the locals refer to Port Douglas. Your choice might be the Pink Flamingo Package: 4 nights, a snorkeling adventure, new mountain bikes to get around the village, and champagne on arrival in your private villa. Definitely surprise her with this one!=]
