Jason Tapper, a former employee of tour wholesaler ICT (Independent Coach Travel), has become the latest member of the group and coach tourism community to set up a new business as a result of the disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Jason has founded Foxwood Travel, a new tour wholesaler specialising in the group and coach tourism market and offering a tailored service to coach operators and group travel operators. He worked for ICT, part of Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV), until it went into administration earlier this year as a result of the effects of the pandemic.

“I had worked for ICT for five years, building up some really strong, personal relationships with coach tour operators,” Jason said. “Immediately following the closure of CMV and ICT, conversations with many of those operators gave me the push, and the confidence, to start up on my own.”

Working together with business partner Robert, Jason has now put together his first brochure and launched foxwoodtravel.co.uk, offering a range of itineraries in the UK and continental Europe that can be tailored to suit an operator’s individual requirements.

He added: “On the face of it this might seem a strange time to launch a new company, but the response from coach operators and from across the sector has been really positive. After spending many years offering a range of first-class tours through ICT, I’m now feeling enthused and looking forward to working closely with coach operators and group travel operators as holiday travel starts to open up again.”
