During the pandemic, Duncan used the time to rebrand his business and focus on identifying his target customer, which has resulted in an uptick in bookings for Southeast Asia, Indonesia, Japan, the Maldives, and Africa. He is interested in promoting travel to South America, Southeast Asia, Japan, and up-and-coming destinations in Africa such as Namibia and Rwanda.

Duncan has learned to break his day down and utilise tools and tasks to improve his productivity. He advises anyone looking to start a travel business to ask themselves if they have the resources to do it and to get a mentor or business coach.
