Yorkshire Travel Start-Up Reaches £1m Turnover
The Le-based company is celebrating five years in business since brothers Kevin and Philip Cabra Netherton founded the start-up through the SPARK business incubator programme at The University of Le in 2012.
What started as an idea between brothers has rapidly grown into a successful business providing a service to a niche market of globetrotters and adventurers, with destinations as far-flung as Mongolia and Beijing on their routes.
The tour operator is a member of the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) and has recently become a Deutsche Bahn Agency, meaning it is an official rail ticket reseller for the German Railways.
Euroventure puts its success down to its custom packages, which account for most of its sales, as well as the expert knowledge of its staff and its high standards in picking accommodation for its customers.
Managing Director, Philip Cabra Netherton said “We started out marketing to backpackers and young people, but we realised there were plenty of individuals of all ages who still want to do a rail trip around Europe – maybe some feel they missed out when they were younger or they’re just looking for an adventure with their families or in retirement”.
To mark the company’s fifth anniversary, Philip is planning to send all his employees on paid trips around Europe in November.
He said “I can’t believe it’s already been five years. It’s important to mark the event and celebrate our success, but if we want to continue providing the best service and expertise to our customers, it’s also important for our staff to know the routes inside out”.
