The Travel Diaries

12 November 2018

The Travel Diaries is an annual report produced by the BDO Travel and Tourism team. In each edition, we will cover a range of topics that examine topical issues and challenges that the UK travel market face as well as an overview of key developments in the sector. 

In our first edition we hear from Jay Lakshman, Co-Founder of On The Go Tours and Nick Munday, Owner and MD of Classic Collection who talk us through their experiences of selling a business and offer some key advice as to how to navigate a successful sale process.

We also feature an article from Daniel Smith, Partner at LivingBridge who has invested a significant sum to the UK travel market during his career and supported many high growth businesses along the way.

Andy Harris from the BDO Travel Due Diligence team and Dominic Stammers for the BDO Travel Audit team also provide an insight on who CFOs should be looking out for and how to prepare for a successful sale process.

We conclude the report with the BDO outbound travel growth league, which shows the fastest growing businesses with an ATOL license.

Please contact one of the M&A Leisure team if you would like to discuss any of the topics raised in more detail.
