Trailfinders to mark 50th anniversary after pandemic delay

Trailfinders is to mark its 50th anniversary a year late after the Covid crisis put paid to plans for multiple celebrations.

The independent travel company is inviting 550 guests to an event in London on Friday.

It had originally put aside £1 million intended for events and giveaways for clients and 1,000 staff.

“We went through a fair proportion of this from October 2019 through to when the pandemic hit,” a spokesperson said.

Trailfinders founder and executive chairman Sir Mike Gooley said: “We had planned a year of celebrations, however it was all hands on deck as the entire company assisted in refunding over 250,000 clients a total of £266 million.

“Thankfully things are looking bright for our future and after such a turbulent chapter in our history, it’s about time we let our hair down and celebrate.”

The venue for the birthday celebration is the Hurlingham Club in Fulham, which is helping Trailfinders host 550 guests, all instrumental in getting the company where it is today.
