FRESH FACES: Sun Island Tours’ NSW BDM Marilu Vitale

New Sun Island Tours NSW/ACT business development manager MARILU VITALE tells us where she’s just been, what she never leaves home without and what sets Sun Island apart from many of its rivals.


Where is the last place you travelled and where are you going next?

I did a 10 day trip of Sri Lanka in July with a fabulous array of industry peers.

For my next trip I am still waiting for inspiration – hopefully one of Sun Island’s wonderful destinations!

I love history, culture and adventure so there’s so much to choose from.


Besides your passport, what’s one thing you always take with you on your travels? 

My topped up Visa card for those off the cuff purchases! 

But I never, ever leave town without my sunscreen too. 


Why did you move to this role?

I loved the products and the company came highly recommended

After 32 years in the industry, I wanted to maximise my experience, knowledge and Sun Island Tours ticked all the right boxes
