Our Story

Autotrip was founded on the belief that it was about time to say a final goodbye to log books and excel sheets, and explore ways to revolutionise the mileage claim process.

Autotrip’s head honcho, James Finlayson, came to the business as an angel investor in 2017 after being Managing Director of the UK’s largest independent car club before selling this to Enterprise-Rent-a-Car. He’s well versed in automotive technology and could see the potential opportunity ahead for Autotrip, so decided to roll up his sleeves and help the business become one of the UK leading mileage expense systems.

Using the mantra ‘keep it simple’, we’ve developed Autotrip to be a solution that’s easy to use for everyone, regardless of tech savviness, having saved our clients 1000s of hours that would have been otherwise spent logging mileage manually.

In spite of our early success, we continue to innovate in the connected car space and aim to become an essential partner for any growing business with a mobile workforce all around the globe.
