The acquisition, for an undisclosed amount, will add 70% growth to the turnover of the Hessle-based corporate travel operator and the deal sees all 21 business travel employees from Wexas joining Good Travel Management bringing their headcount to more than 50.
Kevin Harrison, MD of Good Travel Management said, “We’ve been an admirer of Wexas’ corporate business for a number of years.
They’re known for high quality service, delivered by a very experienced team. In an industry where the quality of people makes the difference, we believe this acquisition complements our business and aspirations perfectly.”
The newly acquired team will continue to work from their central London location, with support from Good Travel Management’s team in Hessle.
With GTM boasting a range of new services and tools to help clients book travel better and make smarter choices when it comes to travel and business’ ESG policies, Harrison is confident of a bright future, “The joining of these two corporate travel teams will create benefits for both sets of customers and this acquisition reinforces our commitment to delivering the best travel service experience for customers. Together, we will continue to shape the future of corporate travel while leaving a positive impact on the travellers and businesses we serve.
