With an engineering background, Peter has successfully started, managed and facilitated acquisitions of a variety of businesses since 1994.

Don’t Travel Empty was a business formed more than 8 years ago by a coach operator to try to overcome the frustrations and wasted money by running coaches on outward legs or return legs empty.

Since then the business has grown rapidly resulting in many more services and benefits being added including the most effective passenger and vehicle recovery service anywhere in the UK and Europe. We have now become the one stop shop for a wide range of benefits relevant to operators of all sizes. Much of this growth and development has come about because we listen to what our members say and then reacting quickly to their suggestions. For this reason we are now known as simply DTE, and we are the largest Membership Organisation in your industry. All you need to do is take away with you a copy of the Operator Benefits Guide for 2016 to see what our members have available to them for just £1 per day. To this day DTE is still run by a hands on coach operator who is very conscious of what other operators need to run a more profitable operation.
