Asia tour specialist Inside Travel Group has announced new investment in the company.

With travel restrictions ending across Asia and Japan’s borders open again, Inside Travel Group and brands, InsideJapan and InsideAsia Tours aim to fuel growth once again

It secured funds from private investment group, Blandford Capital LLP.

Blandford Capital have introduced former Audley Travel Chief Executive and current Chair of The Thinking Traveller Ian Simkins, together with David Wiseman as Non-Executive Directors to Inside Travel Group.

Ian Simkins said that the deal will support the company’s ambitious plans.

“We all see enormous potential in the continued growth of Japan, and the InsideAsia brand with its expanded portfolio of destinations including Malaysia, Borneo, Thailand, and South Korea,” Simkins said

Inside Travel Group was co-founded in 2000 by Alastair Donnelly and Simon King after they livedi in Japan.

Japan recently opened its borders to fully escorted trips, with InsideJapan one of the first to run small group tours again.

“We are investing in a proven company, product and team that we believe in as Asia opens up – the timing couldn’t be better,” Simkins added.
