The Travel Corporation (TTC) has announced its cruise wholesaler company, Creative Cruising, has been purchased as a private investment and will be operated by the owners of Express Travel Group. The agreement was signed this week and will be effective as of Tuesday, December 19.

With more than 30 years of experience in selling cruises, the team at Creative Cruising are the experts to offer the best value for money – bundling cruises, air and land packages to produce hassle-free holidays. As a wholesaler, they have access to over 40 cruise lines, with thousands of cruises to destinations worldwide. 

The Express Travel Group was formed 32 years ago and since then, has been delivering services to the travel industry across airline ticketing, information technology, marketing and product development. 

Creative Cruising will continue to be a standalone business servicing travel agent businesses of all sizes and channels across Australia. 

As part of the transaction the existing team will transition along with the business, Tom Manwaring, CEO of Express Travel Group stated: “Our purchase of Creative Cruising is fully supported through their great team of people, industry best service delivery, great product development and innovation together with far-reaching B2B distribution across the industry. The increasing scale of cruise sales further supports this significant investment.” 

John Veitch, CEO of TTC Australia, commented: “It’s been fantastic to witness Creative Cruising’s phenomenal success over the last few years and I’m thrilled for the team as it enters a new phase of growth under the ownership of Tom.” 

Peter Forsyth, GM of Creative Cruising, added: “It’s an exciting change for us and I look forward to working with Tom.  Just to assure our customers, it’s business as usual and we’ll continue to focus on their requirements.  The business will remain located in the existing office and our current team will remain in their roles.  All bookings, existing and new, will continue as normal and will be serviced by the incredible team at Creative Cruising.  You can reach us on the same phone number and website.”
