Truant Travel Design is a private travel design firm based in Australia, working around the world with clients both here and abroad. Truant Travel Design was formed as a private consultancy for independent travellers and creates trips to meet their specific interests, budget and style, when they do not have the time or inclination to research and organise it themselves.

We are not a bricks-and-mortar travel agency with brochures of set itineraries, or a call centre of automated options. We travel around the globe as often as we can, finding new properties and experiences, working with our network of in-the-know experts and making new discoveries to share with our clients. Our knowledge and experience is always evolving to enable us to create trips unique to each client.

As the owner and director of Truant Travel Design, Riya Thanissorn left a successful corporate career to follow her passion – travel. Having over 50 countries under her belt, she loves to share her wealth of knowledge with clients who understand there is no substitute for trust, good taste and sensible advice. Her goal is to ensure seamless travel planning for her clients, whilst still allowing them to discover new places in their own time, in their own way, or to see favourite destinations in a new light.
