A new travel business in Swindon has gone from nought to sixty within months of setting up, thanks to a surge in the number of bookings.
4K Travel started with one, 13-seater luxury VIP minibus in May and owner Mark Kennedy has already invested in several more vehicles.
The company is based at Elgin alongside two sister companies: community transport business Akcess CIC, which largely caters for school runs, and Akcess Medical, which provides non-emergency hospital transport.
As well as the VIP minibus, the fleet now includes two 16-seater minibuses, one 29-seater coach and two 41 seater coaches, which Mark has named after his grandparents Dennis and Doris. There is also a 15-seater bus with wheelchair access.
4K Travel offers travel for everything ranging from corporate and social events to sports fixtures and airports runs. The luxury VIP minibus has privacy glass, wheelchair access, and state-of-the-art fittings, and is proving popular for hen and stag event transport. Mark’s long-term plans include running organised excursions.
“We incorporated the company a year ago but only really started trading properly in May and so we are doing fantastically well,” said Mark. “I’ve been working hard to build up the client base for 4K Travel, but I think a lot of its success is due to the reputation we have with Akcess CIC and Akcess Medical for providing a great transport service, which is wheelchair accessible.”
