MyDestinationInfo.com provides online travel guides for individual destinations that are run, in franchise style, by local experts on the ground

Founders: Neil Waller and James Street
Website: www.mydestination.com

While on work placement at university, business students Neil and James were unable to find any travel information online for Marbella. Believing they had found a gap in the market, they decided to create their own. Founded in January 2007, MyDestinationInfo.com provides online travel guides for individual destinations that are run, in franchise style, by local experts on the ground.

From only 12 sites at the beginning of the 2009, the network now has over 65 franchised destinations, and some 7 million visitors to the site a year. This year they were also winners of the UK Trade & Investments London Young Exporters Award.
