Client stories | Trailfinders

Our journey with Trailfinders began in the Summer of 1993, with our first instruction being to identify and negotiate for the acquisition of suitable premises in Bristol. We successfully secured the former banking premises at 48 Corn Street, soon followed by a planned regional expansion programme to provide representation throughout the UK.

The most recent acquisitions include properties secured in Liverpool, Chester, Guildford, St Albans and Richmond. All of these have been acquired on a freehold basis adding to an existing and substantial freehold property portfolio. For the balance of the locations we continue to advise on rent reviews, lease renewals and rating appeals on a nationwide basis, as well as acting as managing agents on income producing investment property.

Initially founded in 1970 by former SAS officer Mike Gooley operating from an office in Earls Court Road with a staff of 4, Trailfinders to this day remains privately owned, currently operating from some 30 travel centres with over 1000 expert consultants and has made travel arrangements for over 14 million clients to worldwide destinations.

We are proud of our longstanding relationship with Trailfinders. Our journey together continues as we currently seek representation in a select number of cities, with freehold opportunities being of particular interest.

For over 20 years, Lewis Craig have been a key partner in the continuing expansion of our retail business and assisting in the management of our property portfolio throughout the UK. It is a great comfort to have the continued benefit of the quality of service provided and of their trusted support.
