Leading travel agency group Bestjet Travel (Bestjet) has today announced that it has been fully acquired by Queensland father and son business duo Robert McVicker Senior and Robert McVicker Junior.

The acquisition by McVicker Investment Group will allow the travel business to rapidly expand its suite of products and grow in new markets both domestically and internationally.

Bestjet Managing Director and Founder Rachel James said she is proud of the group’s achievements over the past six years and is enthusiastic about its future expansion within the travel industry.

“I’m very excited about the acquisition and believe the sale will open new doors for the company and we wish the McVicker family the very best for their future venture,” Mrs James said.

“In such a fast-paced industry where travel offerings change so rapidly, it’s important that Bestjet continues to grow and meet consumer demand for products across all segments within the travel industry. The recent acquisition ensures that Bestjet will expand in an efficient manner and this was the natural next step for the company.

“It’s business as usual for Bestjet’s customers who will not experience any interruptions with their bookings. The transition will be as seamless as possible, with our customers continuing to have access to great flight and accommodation deals with no booking fees.”

With industry leading technology, Bestjet is the most advanced internet-based travel business in Australia, featuring purpose-built software that provides a streamlined, safe and secure booking system.

Mr Robert McVicker Senior described the new acquisition as a strategic move with Bestjet providing an unparalleled platform for the McVicker Investment Group to take the business to a new level as well as complimenting its global operations.

“My son has a background in the airline industry and is passionate about creating efficiencies and delivering a value-for-money service. We have a global vision and are excited about the future of Bestjet under the McVicker Investment Group portfolio,” Mr McVicker Senior said.

“The acquisition of Bestjet was an easy choice for Robert Junior and I, with the company demonstrating the highest growth in the market of 30 percent year after year.

“The current Bestjet team has the experience and commitment to drive the company’s growth forward and I see great opportunities to employ additional staff members within the company to expand the business further.”
