Company Description

We help holidaymakers love their journeys

We’re taking on climate change by building the first tech platform for flight-free holidays. We help people experience the joy of journeying through lesser-known parts of the UK and Europe by train, boat and bus, and are proud to be a certified B Corporation.

Founded in March 2020, we’re backed by Innovate UK, and have raised £1.2M from incredible investors. Our organic growth has been significant and sustained since launch, mostly thanks to press, from the Times to the Guardian. Since January 2022, our first paid marketing investments and partnerships have seen bookings surge to over £100k/month - well beyond this organic base.
