About the employer

Limitless Travel was founded by Angus Drummond, who has always been a passionate traveller. Shortly after being diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy, Angus left his job in investment banking and set out to explore the world. As his mobility began to decline, Angus discovered there was almost no information available for disabled travellers. He gained direct experience of the problems that people with disabilities face when visiting new places, both at home and abroad. On his return home, Angus decided to make a positive change, and so Limitless Travel was born.
