Leavetown was founded in 2008 in Canmore, Alberta, a friendly mountain town and gateway to the Canadian Rockies. Having just relocated to Canada from England, I was on a mission to fully explore my new home, and discover the best skiing, hiking and flying the region had to offer. Blown away by the stunning scenery and helpful locals in every destination, I realized that I wanted to share my home away from home with others.
My idea was to personalise and simplify the vacation booking process, making it accessible to everyone. Having a background in telecommunications and a thirst for adventure, I had travelled extensively over the years, and after a lifetime of booking trips, I could see what large corporate travel agencies were missing: personality!
I started Leavetown as a backyard business offering unique Canadian vacation accommodations tailored to the individual wants and needs of each traveller – a perfect alternative to impersonal booking engines and mass travel agencies.
Today, Leavetown offers a range of global destinations to our guests, while retaining a local touch. Our diverse team of knowledgeable and caring Destination Experts hail from 12 different countries, with experience working – and playing – in the worldwide destinations we serve. We are dedicated to finding you the best vacation accommodations, activities and local deals, ensuring your holiday is headache-free.
We welcome you to Leavetown with us, and make the world your home!
