Bristol-based TravelLocal is transforming the tailor-made holiday industry by enabling clients to book directly with handpicked local travel companies based in their destination, cutting out the traditional middlemen. Founded by Tom Stapleton and Huw Owen, and with Mark Hudson as Executive Chairman, its innovative web platform launched in 2016.

This platform enables TravelLocal to combine authentic personalised holidays and advice from true experts - who live in the destination - with the convenience of booking online and the security of ABTA protection. We’re working with TravelLocal to accelerate its global expansion as a worldwide holiday provider by adding new destinations and reaching more customers.
