Doug has spent many years being a bum traveller round the world and returned to the UK in 2002. In 2003 Doug managed to buy carrentals.co.uk and launched the site from a bedroom and with no funding. Since then it has grown into a business with over 20 million pounds in sales annually, using almost only online methods. Recently the company has begun to develop recycle.co.uk, overseas.com.au and a large number of other websites globally. They have recently purchased promotions.co.uk and will make it into a promotions web site and also offer a white labels promotions offering to other web site owners.
