Travelshopa founder and Managing Director, Renée Lodens, has always been somewhat of a 'travel shopper'. At the tender age of five she started travelling unaccompanied, shuttling between Sydney and Brisbane to spend time with her family during school holidays. Even while growing up, Renée worked in several of her family’s small businesses to gain an understanding of the opportunities and challenges SMEs are presented with. Funding her wanderlust around the world and love for shopping was also part of her motivation. It was only a natural progression that she would go onto establishing Travelshopa.com.
