Holidays Please - Looking to acquire agencies

No matter how well we are doing online there will always be people who prefer that face to face contact and so we are actively exploring the option of a high street presence.

Online holiday company Holidays Please has recently announced a £1m management buy out and is now seeking acquisitions as part of its expansion strategy.

Holidaysplease has confirmed that the acquisitions could include Thomas Cook branches and staff following their recent announcement to shed up to 195 branches and 2500 staff.

Charles Duncombe, director at Holidaysplease explains, "We are in discussions with agencies at the moment and would be happy for Thomas Cook branches to be included within this. We are growing at the moment and are crying out for more good quality staff."

Holidaysplease specialises in long haul holidays including honeymoons, luxury holidays and safaris and is not ruling out a move to the high street.

"No matter how well we are doing online there will always be people who prefer that face to face contact and so we are actively exploring the option of a high street presence," said Mr Duncombe.

It is perhaps ironic that online travel agencies, seen as part of the reason for the decline of high street travel agents, may be able to offer a lifeline for some high street branches and their staff.
