Baxter Hoare Travel is forging ahead with its growth strategy and has announced its latest acquisition, specialist business travel agency Holborn Travel.
The deal also includes Holborn Travel’s niche cruise business, which trades under the Chancery Cruising brand.
Last year Baxter Hoare purchased Pressplan Travel.
Founded thirty-four years ago, Holborn Travel is a highly respected travel company, which has built up an enviable reputation, particularly in the fulfillment of business travel for the legal profession.
All of the Holborn Travel personnel, including former owner and industry veteran, Michael Driscoll, will join forces with the Baxter Hoare team based at their London Bridge headquarters.
Commenting on the latest acquisition Adam White, managing director, Baxter Hoare Travel said: “We have an aggressive expansion plan for Baxter Hoare which includes acquisitions, such as Holborn Travel and Pressplan but also organic growth through new business wins.
“We have plans for further targeted company acquisitions in the near future.
“Bringing Holborn Travel into Baxter Hoare is good news for both our combined customers and staff as not only will it enable us to offer a wider range of products and services but it will give our staff greater career development opportunities to grow as the business continues to expand rapidly.
“This is a great fit, we are delighted to welcome the Holborn Travel team whose experience compliments the deep knowledge of the Baxter Hoare staff which when combined will enable us to develop our business and personal travel businesses to new highs.”
