Scott Dunn: Great British Brand 2023

‘January 2023 marks five years of being in the travel industry and I’ve seen it survive extraordinary turbulence, from terrorist attacks to the pandemic. That’s because people will always love to travel and they’ve flocked back to us, resulting in 2022 being the most successful year in our history.

‘When people weren’t travelling recently, our operational muscles weren’t being flexed, and we certainly felt the pain when we started re-exercising them in 2022. But we’re arriving in 2023 fitter and stronger than ever, having strengthened our digital offering and added some new members to our very capable team to provide that great service that our guests depend on us for.

‘Though there weren’t many destinations left to add, in 2022 we added Egypt, Israel and Malta to our holidays and started going deeper and really getting under the skin of countries like Japan, France and also South Africa in response to demand for more wildlife experiences. The cost-of-living crisis is very real so we’re really focusing on how we add value. We’re also broadening our idea of what a family holiday means, as nowadays “family” could mean anything from a nuclear family to a group of girlfriends. So, we’re looking at small portfolios of hosted trips for groups who don’t want to be stung by single occupancy supplements. 

‘We know that a holiday represents people’s precious time and money, so although we’re underpinned by our knowledge, great destinations and effective technology, we are above all guest-centric. With all the recent travel chaos, our guests trust us to support them through their journey whatever happens. We start planning every journey by finding out all about you so we can tailor your trip exactly to who you are. Our brand heritage has always been and always will be to take our guests as the absolute starting point.’ Sonia Davies, CEO
