Oxford Private Travel acquires Exosphere

We are delighted to announce the acquisition of Exosphere, the boutique luxury travel specialist, based in London, effective on 1st of December 2017.

Exosphere, founded by John Saunders, have been offering individually designed holidays to HNW clients round the world since 2006. Joining the Oxford Private Travel team will be Julia Jossa and Rebecca Ward who both come with a wealth of experience. John Saunders will also be joining Oxford Private Travel's management team on a part time basis and working on the transition as well as further business development. 

This move will include the opening of a new London Office and the Exosphere name will be folded into the Oxford Private Travel brand.

Rupert Longsdon, Founder of Oxford Private Travel says:

“I am delighted about this acquisition. I have known John and Exosphere for many years and Exosphere will naturally complement our business having similar values, an engaging and warm culture and extensive skill set. It also highlights our desire to grow our Oxford Private Travel brand.”

John Saunders says “This is a great opportunity to take Exosphere Travel to the next level. Oxford Private Travel has an excellent reputation and this move offers our clients an even better knowledge base and our team a fantastic new structure.”

This acquisition does not include the Exosphere Events business which will now be rebranded to Origination and will be taken to an exciting new direction under Saunders and existing Events Director, Sophie Edwards.

We are delighted with this new and exciting opportunity and look forward to offering our clients new expertise and wider travel prospects as we embark on this next stage of Oxford Private Travel's development.
