Fred Finn, The World's Most Travelled Man

Fred Finn became the Guinness World Record awarded 'the most miles travelled as a passenger' more than a quarter-century ago (1983) with a 'mere' seven million miles. He has since more then doubled that number.

"A British tourist has become the world's most travelled man after spending a lifetime circling the globe, clocking up 15 million miles, 718 Concorde flights and 139 countries on the way.

Wealthy Fred Finn, 70, holds the official record for the most miles travelled by a passenger after visiting an incredible 70 per cent of the world's 196 nations.
Fred has since spent 52 years travelling the globe, during which he has covered 15million miles - the equivalent of travelling to the moon and back 31 times.

He has kept a detailed log of every flight and train journey he has taken, which he had counter-signed by each driver and pilot to verify his achievement.
