JacTravel is Again in Listings of High-Growth Companies

7 Apr 2017

JacTravel, which is best known as a B2B wholesaler of accommodation and provider of inbound travel services to the UK, Ireland and Continental Europe, has again been named in listings of high-growth companies. It features in the FT 1,000 Fastest Growing Companies in Europe, published on 7th April.

In 2016, JacTravel took a number of new initiatives, which have paid off. It introduced special interest tours, boutique accommodation and sporting packages featuring new English Premier League football. To complement an already strong proposition in Scotland, London and the South of England, both Wales and Northern Ireland have been developed as destinations. Also new for 2016 was the launch of a MICE division for the UK market to complement JacTravel’s established leisure business.

In terms of source market development, a new office was opened in Beijing and its team there is already looking after more than a hundred corporate clients. With the launch of the totalstay.com retail platform earlier in the year, JacTravel now provides travel agents with net rates and direct booking for over 165,000 hotels worldwide.

In 2016 JacTravel generated more than £74m for the UK economy, handling over 220,000 FIT bookings and operating two-thousand-plus group tours. It also won a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise based on strong export growth. Since 2012, it has won several awards for customer service and business excellence and has consistently featured in rankings of high-growth companies.
