About Us

Our History

The business started over 30 years ago with very humble origins. We created tailor-made air fare products for Missionaries travelling overseas, mainly to Africa. Many of the same NGO & Humanitarian organisations are still clients of ours today. Using the same model we began to supply airfares to the travel industry. Along came the internet and our technology drove huge sales growth.

Our Growth

Acquisitions made in recent years allowed us to expand our brand to include Business Travel where we focus on niche sectors. In 2019 a new chapter in our story began where we merged with e-Travel, a hugely successful online agent and travel technology business. This grew our team numbers to 200 and our annual sales to over €200m. The pandemic put our expansion on hold. Once international travel restarted our sales volumes soared back and we are now ahead of our 2019 records volumes.
