About Us

Sam Collins

Ethos Travel was founded in 2007 by two young, enthusiastic South East Asian experts in Sam Collins & Tim Willcox who were convinced that service-led specialists would overcome the ‘race to the bottom’ in service and standards we were witnessing amongst online travel companies at the time.

And we believe we were right! Fourteen tough and educational years later we retain the passion for South East Asia and take great pride that over 40% of our clients are repeat or recommendations – for which we owe you a great big thank you for trusting your dream holiday or honeymoon to us.

We ensure all our staff share the same passion and ensure they are frequently on the road exploring! We still believe our biggest strength is our first-hand experience and knowledge of South East Asia, and that’s why 2021 will see an expansion into new countries featuring more tours and hotels and destinations exclusive to us.

Despite our continued growth Sam and Tim love a distraction from spreadsheets and hotel contracts and welcome the chance to chat anytime so you’ll frequently find us answering enquiries for our favourite destinations!
