The travel and leisure sector is emerging from a difficult period, but continues to face challenges across the globe due to pressure on consumers’ disposable income.
“VAA has been instructing Harbottle & Lewis since 1984 and we keep coming back for a reason, not only is their service first class, they genuinely care and take a real interest in our business.”

Advances in technology have created both opportunities and threats. Travel and tourism operators are increasingly utilising technology in order to interact with consumers and reduce costs. Developments in home entertainment are forcing other leisure operators to raise their game in order to compete effectively and draw consumers out of the house.
To succeed in a testing environment, you need to evolve and adapt. Your priorities to achieve long-term growth will vary greatly, but you can rely on our diverse experience across the travel, tourism, hospitality, leisure, entertainment, sponsorship and technology industries to help you make the most of existing opportunities and to find new ways of competing in a crowded market.
In a service industry reputation is everything. Whether you are an airline, tour operator, travel company, bar, restaurant, art gallery, nightclub, leisure centre or hotel chain, we can support you in any legal dispute whilst keeping your good name intact. We understand the strains of developing and growing a business, and will be committed to you long term.
