Whether it is a luxury beach escape or a bespoke tour of New Zealand, Kensington-based Trailfinders says it has helped more than 15m travellers organise their holidays since starting in 1970. While founder and chairman Mike Gooley, 81, initially planned to sell discount trips to Australia, Trailfinders has evolved to specialise in travel to many more destinations across the globe. Sales represent the gross value of air tickets, hotels and other services.
