Nemo was built on a love for the unknown, a mission to have a positive impact on the environment, a desire to change travel planning, and a passion for all things tech. We’re putting together a team that understands our ethos and our desire to do things differently. Our mission is to reinvent the term ‘travel agent’, a big task, but one that we are determined to succeed in.

How can we modernise bespoke travel planning?
That was the big question. As seasoned ‘travel agents’, we were tired of the rushed phone calls, chaser emails and lack of transparency. It all seemed incredibly old school and not what we were used to experiencing in other industries. On the other side, we were all too aware of the pain points travellers experience with online booking platforms and price comparison websites.
So, we set out to create a digital travel agency where human expertise works alongside technology. By giving our travellers the tools to design their own trips, based on our recommendations, they are given a real sense of ownership over their itinerary. After finding the perfect web developers to turn our dream into a reality, we were on our way.
And so, nemo was born. The next chapter is about you, our travellers, as we use feedback to roll out new features and continuously adapt to the ever-changing world of travel. This is just the start.
Co-founder + Travel Expert
There's nothing better than the adrenaline you get from doing something new. For me, this started early on with adventurous family holidays to Asia and now, it comes in all shapes and sizes. From exploring new corners of the world to climbing or snowboarding with mates - it's why we travel and why I look forward to sending you lucky people away on an adventure of your own!“My passion: India! For me there's nowhere else quite like it.”
With 6 years in bespoke travel, working as both a travel planner and then as a manager at one of Kenya's top lodges, I have a major soft spot for Africa and I'm forever dreaming of my next safari trip. Closer to home, I love open water swimming and always looking for new locations around the UK - any ideas, let me know!“Favourite hotel: Saruni Samburu. The views are out of this world and you can see some truly unique species not often seen on safari.”
What I love about travel? Finding the secret spots. There's nothing quite like finding a secluded beach break or quiet corner of a city, those profound feelings of discovery and curiosity are what drive my bucket-list dreams. Next trip? Bali.“City or ocean? Ocean every time; I'm happiest when on a surfboard.”

What's better than making your passion your job? I love to help plan and organise people's dream trips, once in a life time experiences, that then re-spark my own want to continue seeing more of the world. Next on the list... Sri Lanka!“Best time spent: Backpacking Asia, an experience I will never forget!”
My love for travel was kickstarted in 2009 when I spent a year living with a local family in Colombia to learn Spanish. Since then I've adventured across the world but always give in to South America's incredible allure. I can't wait to head off soon on my next adventure to explore Lombok in Indonesia!“My biggest adventure to date? Living and working for a month in the Colombian Amazon for an indigenous ecotourism project.”
There's no greater joy than waving someone off, knowing they're about to have an adventure or experience they won't be able to fully put into words! I've loved doing this with a myriad of wonderful people over the last few years. After a few flirtations with living in Africa myself, I am back on UK soil but am always plotting where I can go next - Zambia calls and has been for a while!“Happiest when: Heading out at dawn in Africa - following up on the sounds from the night before and seeing the plains game softening with the relief of another light filled day!”
For me, travel is more than pretty beaches and a pause on day-to-day life. It is immersing myself in local culture, tasting new flavors and experiencing what a destination has to offer. I chose this industry so I can talk about what I love every day and to create excitement for others as they piece together their once in a lifetime trip. A destination I would love to visit soon would be Costa Rica.“My travel highlight: Flying in a hot air balloon at sunrise over the Valley of the Kings in Egypt.”
