"We only back exceptional high-growth technology-enabled businesses with stable, proven leadership teams."
Who are Travel Counsellors?
We were born in England in 1994, when founder David Speakman anticipated the move towards travel professionals running their own leisure or corporate travel businesses from home.
His pioneering franchise model enabled its holders to provide an unrivalled level of personal care and attention for their customers when creating bespoke travel experiences.
The entrepreneurial spirit and the dedication to the principle of offering a truly personalised travel service, underpinned by the values of trust and customer intimacy, remain as true today - as we approach 2,000 colleagues in seven different countries - as it was right back at the start of our incredible journey.
We welcome our 100th Travel Counsellor to the family.
We were the first travel company to win the Queen's Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category which recognises businesses that demonstrate commercially successful and innovative services.
We launch our own unique financial trust to provide extensive financial protection to our customers
Travel Counsellors continues to expand and services launch in Ireland and the Netherlands.
Our bespoke-built, in-house booking platform, Phenix, is launched, enabling our Travel Counsellors to create tailor-made travel itineraries.
As our success continued, we expanded to South Africa, taking our bespoke services global.
We hit a key milestone as our 1,000th Travel Counsellor joined the company.
Travel Counsellors is highlighted as a key mid-size company in the UK’s economic recovery following the recession and is named in the Telegraph list of Britain’s 1,000 Brightest Businesses.
Our global expansion continues as we expand into the UAE and again in 2013 when we opened our doors in Belgium.
