Commenting on the deal, Swans Travel Managing Director Kieran Swindells said: “Travelmaster is a fantastic addition, with an excellent record of delivering high quality services.

“Its experienced staff, fleet and strategic location will enable us to fulfil our expanding portfolio of corporate, sports and airline services.

“We look forward to a smooth transition, welcoming our new colleagues and clients, who will benefit from our ongoing investment in our people, vehicles and technology.”
