In March 2002, Attraction Tickets Direct was born when founder – Olly Brendon – borrowed £10,000, wrote a basic brochure and started a website selling attraction tickets. The company was the first to sell attraction tickets online and the key selling points which made the brand an instant success remain in place today: expert knowledge, very quick delivery, real gate-ready tickets, no credit card fees and a passion for great customer service.

So, in 2012, we will celebrate our 10th birthday with some exclusive offers, the Orlando awards (see www.orlandoawards.co.uk ), some re-branding and a party for staff, suppliers and people we’ve met along the way.

In the past ten years, we have provided attraction and excursion tickets to over 2.5 million customers, making us the number one ticket retailer for the world’s greatest theme parks – Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando and SeaWorld.  In 2006 we were first ever company to sell over 1 million visits (clicks through the gate) to Walt Disney World, Florida in just one year. We now have offices in London, Dublin and Berlin and three brands with distinct strategies:

More importantly, the last ten years have been lots of fun and we’ve discovered some wonderful attractions and excursions to sell and some innovative ways of reaching customers and showcasing our suppliers’ products such as the new interactive brochure. We’re still 100% independent, passionate and with an entrepreneurial spirit. We look forward to the next ten amazing years.
