WELL-KNOWN Port Elizabeth travel agency Bay Travel will be operating under a new group.
Managing director Gillian Roffe said the 10-year contract with the Uniglobe Travel Sub-Sahara region was expiring and the company had reviewed various travel groups and what they had to offer.
"Our main objective ... was to review cost-saving opportunities and, in the long term, any benefits to our clients. We identified the XL Group, which we believe can take Bay Travel forward," Roffe said.
She said the change-over from Uniglobe Bay Travel to XL Bay Travel would be effective from today.
"Our holding company will remain the same, and going forward we will trade as XL Bay Travel. Other than the name change there will be no change to personnel, bank details, contact details, services provided of any nature that will affect our clients," Roffe said.
Organisations belonging to the XL Group collectively produce annual sales volumes exceeding R2-billion.– Business Reporter
