Flight Centre Travel Group will unite Buffalo Tours with Olympus Tours to create the all-encompassing company.

Buffalo Tours (specialising in Asia) and Olympus Tours (focusing on the Americas) give Discova the international reach it needs to be described as a “global experience company”.

The merger will be completed late 2019 and will be showcased officially at World Travel Mart in London.

 

WHAT WILL DISCOVA OFFER?

Discova will be able to create tailor-made in-destination solutions, according to Flight Centre.

Services will range from touring, transportation, educational travel and MICE. It’ll be able to do this initially in 14 countries in Asia, Mexico, Latin America and the Caribbean.

 

HOW WILL THIS BENEFIT CUSTOMERS & PARTNERS?

Discova’s Managing Director, Greg Kitchen, said the merger allows the group to remain at the forefront of in-destination travel services and connect partners and customer to a “world of possibilities”.

Additionally, Discova will adopt Buffalo Tours’ strong attitude towards responsible tourism, ensuring the company compliments work done by FCTG’s Worldwise Charter.
