Alex Gisbert Joins Low Cost Travel Group

The Low Cost Travel Group has appointed Alex Gisbert as International Managing Director. Alex has a strong travel industry background and joined the group on 1st July from his previous role as Director of Online Partner Marketing for Expedia in Europe. He joined Expedia in 2007 as Regional Director Strategic Accounts from Opodo UK where he was Commercial Director and prior to that spent four years at the Thomas Cook Group.

 

Alex will be responsible for the continued roll out and expansion of the Low Cost Travel Group’s core businesses across Europe. The group has sites active in Germany, Spain, Sweden, Austria, Switzerland and Ireland, with Italy the latest market to launch. France, Norway and Holland will all come online later in the year.

 

Paul Evans, Chief Executive of the Low Cost Travel Group, said: “Alex has a wealth of invaluable industry experience, including Travolution Magazine’s Rising Star of the Year Award in 2009, and I am delighted to announce his appointment to the Group. Sales across Europe are running above our original expectations, with Spain, Sweden, Germany and Ireland performing particularly strongly. These are very exciting times for the group with aggressive growth plans for Europe and I’m delighted to have Alex leading this expansion.”

 

Alex Gisbert added: “I am really excited to lead the European expansion of the Low Cost Travel Group. The Group is already benefiting from significant demand from customers across Europe for flexible and lower cost holidays and the roll-out of lowcostbeds and Resorthoppa as well as lowcostholidays in new markets is a very exciting proposition.”

 

There are now over 200 Irish travel agents signed up and doing regular business with lowcostbeds.ie and resorthoppa.ie north and south of the border.
