The business was established in 1975 by Jack Anthony Coronna (the Jac in JacTravel) as an inbound tour operator. By 1980 JacTravel had expanded into outbound travel from the UK and travel from long haul markets into Europe. In 2002 JacTravel launched its API facility giving clients the ability to link directly to our hotels database.

Our ambitious plans for the future include significant expansion both in the UK and overseas markets.
In March 2015 JacTravel acquired The TotalStay Group, a major accommodation provider to wholesale, retail and consumer markets.
The enlarged group now benefits from greater scale in the accommodation market, achieving an annual combined turnover in excess of £388 million and direct contractual relationships with more than 12,000 independent and chain hotel partners in 2,000 cities globally. Greater scale is expected to accelerate growth and deliver increased efficiency to the benefit of both customers and suppliers.
We're committed to nurturing and investing in our people and are always looking for new talent to join the team.
We're also constantly seeking new travel industry suppliers to partner and grow with.
