The Lowcosttravelgroup has announced the sale of Resorthoppa to A2B Transfers led by Renaldo Scheepers, creating Europe’s leading transfer provider. The new combined business plans to retain both brands, with A2B Transfers and Resorthoppa’s existing strong trade presence as well as Resorthoppa’s strong direct business, to create a market leader, and Europe’s largest transfer provider.
The Lowcosttravelgroup will continue to closely support and work with Resorthoppa, selling all its products via the group’s UK and international websites, as well as being its exclusive GSA across international markets, where the business continues to grow rapidly.
Renaldo Scheepers, Chief Executive of A2B Transfers, said: “We are delighted with this merger, which will help us to consolidate our position as the market leader in transfers across Europe, and we intend to work closely with the lowcosttravelgroup, and indeed all trade partners, to supply seamless transfers for their customers. We pride ourselves in building a high quality, high technical service and the staff and ethos of Resorthoppa match this perfectly.”
Paul Evans, Chief Executive of the Lowcosttravelgroup, said: “We are delighted that the new merged business will be our exclusive transfer and content supplier for the next three years. This deal is part of our broader restructuring programme to rationalise and simplify our business and to focus on our core hotels and holidays business across Europe that is growing very nicely.”
