Insight was founded in London in 1978 with a handful of staff supporting about 5,700 passengers. In 1983, Insight Vacations was the first scheduled tour operator to win 'the Queen's Award for Export Achievement' from Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. This award is among the many important Tour Operator 'Firsts' achieved by the company over the years. Today, Insight Vacations has over 100,000 guests per year supported by a team of professionals in offices in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, South Africa and Singapore. Additionally, the company has specialist agents in Argentina, Brazil, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Mauritius, Philippines, Taiwan and Thailand.

Insight Vacations aims to protect the environment as well as the people and places they visit. The company is committed to both minimizing the environmental impact of their operations, as well as contributing to sustainable tourism projects all around the world.
Insight’s current progress:
Insight has partnered with Sustainable Travel International, allowing you to choose carbon neutral travel by voluntarily offsetting your flight, accommodation and coach travel.
The Leading Travel Companies Conservation Foundation was established by Insight Vacations in 2008. This non-for-profit joint initiative encourages sustainable tourism, conservation and supports natural environments, historical sites and threatened communities.
Insight Vacations has been introducing recycling, energy reduction and waste minimization projects in addition to supporting local community projects, in order to reduce the carbon footprints and environmental impact of their offices. Insight staff is also involved in making a difference by being encouraged to spend two working days per year volunteering for charitable projects.
Insight coaches emit significantly less carbon dioxide than air or train travel. So by taking a coach tour, you are already choosing one of the most environmental forms of transportation.
