AC Group expands international portfolio

The British DMC has added France, Benelux and USA to its offering, following opening of offices in Paris and New York in 2017.

AC Group is now programming leisure and business trips to France, Benelux and North America. The expanded portfolio follows the group’s opening of offices in Paris and New York in 2017 and will be available across all three brands – group travel specialists AC Tours, bespoke luxury provider AC Luxe and B2B specialist AC Online.

The DMC also anticipates further expansion in the coming year with increased demand for travel from growing markets such as Israel, the Far East and South-East Asia.

Malcolm Lindop, joint CEO of AC Group, said: "The programming of new destinations allows us to strengthen our relationships with existing partners, as well as reach new clientele.

"We are delighted to be working with organisations such as Travel Counsellors and Opportunity Travel to offer increasingly global group and bespoke travel solutions.

"Having experts in-market for both France and North America helps to ensure the new destinations will live up to the service and experience levels our travel industry partners expect from AC Group."
