Bestjet Travel welcomes new owners

ONLINE travel agency Bestjet Travel was last month acquired by father and son business McVicker Investment Group in a move aiming to “rapidly expand its suite of products and grow in new markets both domestically and internationally”.

Robert McVicker Senior said the move provided a new platform to take McVicker Investment Group to a new level. “We have a global vision and are excited about the future of Bestjet under the McVicker Investment Group Portfolio,” he said. “I see great opportunities to employ additional staff members within the company to expand the business further.”

Bestjet managing director and founder Rachel James said the sale would open new doors for the travel agency. “In such a fast-paced industry, where travel offerings change so rapidly, it’s important that Bestjet continues to grow and meet customer demand for products across all segments in the travel industry,” she said.
