Gaytravel International is also connected to the Global Help Support Centre  - Virtual Call Centre, an Internet based  'Chat' help desk where an individual or travel consultant can talk live in real time with a Global Help Consultant for travel information and assistance for New Zealand, Australia and the South Pacific region.
