About Dave Upton

Dave Upton is globally respected as a “travel guru”. His success and experience in the travel industry over the last 35 years has led to the development of AccommodationGuru.com.

Dave’s experience includes Board membership of Trailfinders, one of the UK’s largest independent travel agents. He also founded The Travel Specialists, in Sydney Australia, which subsequently merged with Sydney Flight Centre to form Travel.com.au – Australia’s first and most well-known online travel company.

Dave quickly saw the huge potential for AccommodationGuru.com and, combining his internet development expertise with his many years of travel experience, has now launched AccommodationGuru.com internationally.
