Our strategic consulting team helped with the acquisition of The Mike Burton Group and Sportsworld.
Buying a travel business
Our deep travel sector experience can be a significant advantage when buying a travel business. We can provide you with valuable insights and an understanding of the industry, allowing you to make informed decisions and navigate the challenges that may arise.
Thinking of investing in a travel business
Our familiarity with the travel sector will help you understand market dynamics, trends, and customer preferences. This will enable you to identify opportunities, assess the competitive landscape, and make sound strategic decisions when considering buying a business.
We can then support you through the acquisition process, starting with finding a suitable target investment amongst our vast network of travel industry contacts through to tactical support in structuring an achievable deal.
Unrivalled travel sector expertise
When it comes to buying travel companies, there is the added complication of satisfying important travel industry regulators like ATOL ABTA and IATA. Of course, our extensive experience of working with the regulators means you can be confident that the regulatory costs and consequences of your proposed deal structure will be factored into the plans.
Our light-touch due diligence support can provide you with sufficient comfort that your target’s business fundamentals are in good shape.
What clients think of our strategy work
We’ve worked with a wide range of clients over the years, from household names to brand new start-ups.
Here are what some of them had to say about our strategic services.
"Knowing that the TTC team are finance experts who also have a deep understanding of the travel industry is the reason we have remained a client for so long. We are delighted with the day-to-day finance work and long-term strategic planning they have carried out for us."
"We appointed TTC to assist with the regulatory aspects of carving Travelopia out of the TUI Group. Martin and his team worked closely with the senior management team throughout the very complex transaction process, providing advice and guidance on all licensing and bonding matters. TTC's in-depth knowledge of the ATOL, ABTA and IATA requirements and their previous travel sector transaction experience was invaluable in helping us conclude a successful sale to KKR."
"The TTC team were fantastic to work with, and they understood the travel industry as well as the challenges we were facing. Martin and Sarah shared some insightful analysis that, as a CEO, helped me to have confidence in the modelling and the decision I was making."
