Alfred Tam, Travel Expert’s COO said: “We are very pleased to add JacTravel as an accommodation provider. It has a broad selection of directly contracted city centre hotels in major destinations around the world, which will enhance our offer and it has a reputation, built up over 40 years, for excellent client service, which provides valuable reassurance that we will be in good hands in the event we have to deal with something unexpected and beyond our control.”
Ben Wood, JacTravel’s Regional Head of Sales, Asia Pacific said: “Travel Expert is a great credential for us as it is very well-known as a specialist in independent travel, providing holidays packages to Australia, Japan, Korea, New Zealand and SE Asian destinations. However, more importantly, it has an outstanding reputation, built on a heritage dating back more than 30 years.”
