Bespoke holiday provider eShores celebrates 15 years of business

Date published: 30 May 2022

Bespoke holiday provider eShores has celebrated 15 years of business this May.

Co-founded by Gavin Lapidus and Nadine Brown in 2007 in a bedroom, the independent business has moved offices three times due to growth, and is currently located on Manchester Road, Castleton.

eShores is particularly known for their excellence in providing multi-centre holidays, allowing holidaymakers to travel to multiple destinations in one trip with all hotels and transfers included.

The business serves customers in the UK with adventures in over 75 locations across the Americas, Asia, Europe, Africa, Arabia, the Caribbean, Australasia, and the Indian Ocean.

Gavin Lapidus, co-founder of eShores, said: “We managed to get through the pandemic intact as a business, while keeping the key team together and working. While we did have to utilise some part-time furlough, we put all staff on reduced hours and kept people working at the same time, so the team was always together.

“No one was stuck at home furloughed full time, and the entire team worked hard to maintain the same excellent levels of service we pride ourselves on.

“I’m so proud of the eShores team for how hard they’ve all worked and their willingness to adapt. While this has always been the case across our team, their hard work and dedication has been invaluable over the last two years in particular.

“While it’s been tough, and no business is ever perfect, the general consensus from clients and staff alike is they are pleased with how eShores handled the pandemic.

“To take such an unprecedented hit and come out of it on the other side makes me incredibly proud of all we’ve achieved as a business.”
