Ashton and Dave Travels was founded by Mr. Abiola Lawal and the company has been in the travel business for almost a decade offering top notch travel services to corporate organisations.

As an entrepreneur, Lawal said he has a passion for the travel industry and felt the industry needs to move with the rest of the world by offering seamless and more Do It Yourself (D.I.Y) travel services. This led to the birth of flyboku.com.
