Busabout is opening up in North America and has named Damien Bennett to the role of Director of Sales for North America, becoming the brand’s first full-time employee to service Canada and the U.S. He is based in Toronto. Bennett brings with him 16 years of industry experience and youth travel expertise with The Travel Corporation, working for Contiki from 1999 to 2015, most recently as Head of Sales for UK & Europe in London. “I’m looking forward to building more awareness of Busabout’s unique product in North America, a robust market where freedom and flexibility are hugely important to travellers,” says Bennett. “My main focus is on building strong relationships with the Canadian and American travel trade.” Started in 1998, Busabout brings independent travellers to destinations across Europe and Asia with a flexible transportation-only, hop-on hop-off travel network. Travellers choose accommodation, meals and activities at leisure, opting between three ways to travel: flexitrip, loops and one-ways. With over 34 different destinations, no upper age limit and no fixed itinerary or set time limit, Busabout is designed for those looking to meet fellow travellers and explore the world on their own terms.
