We cater to all sorts of travellers, whether they’re looking for an expertly led group tour or a tailor-made adventure. And while the majority of our portfolio is positioned towards the higher end of the experiential offering, we do have a number of brands offering more affordable price points for those on a tighter budget.

History

The brands in our portfolio specialise in a certain type of travel or tap into particular passions. Each one started life as a small, independent business, before forming Specialist Group, part of TUI Group, the world’s largest leisure travel company.

In May 2016, TUI Group announced the rebranding of Specialist Group to Travelopia and it’s intention to sell the businesses. 

In February 2017, KKR, a leading global investment firm purchased Travelopia Holdings Limited and in June 2017 the sale of Travelopia was finalised.
