Prominent Travel Wholesaler Stops Business

An Irish travel wholesaler with a presence in the UK, Australian and European markets ceases trading.

Chase Travel, an Irish travel wholesaler with a strong presence in the UK, Australian and European markets, has ceased trading. A statement posted today on the Chase Travel website reads: “It is with great sadness that as of the 1st of November Chase Travel has ceased trading. The company is seeking professional advice on the next steps and a further update will be provided accordingly.”

The Dublin-based company, which was founded in 1990, made a successful business out of selling hotels, cruises, tours, car rentals, tourist attractions, transfers and event tickets to the travel industry. It offered around 45,000 hotels and resorts. It moved into the UK in 2008 and then into Australia in July this year. In the UK, after agreeing deals with Hays Travel and the Triton consortium that then included Advantage, Global and Worldchoice, it said it planned to establish itself in the top three in its sector.
