Victorian boutique leisure agency, Jigsaw Travel of Prahan, and long-standing premium leisure agency, The Travel Agency of Moonee Ponds, are the latest high profile agencies to join CT Partners, effective 1 September.
Rachelle Matheson and Felicity Moss of Jigsaw Travel, which also incorporates ski specialist Mogul Ski World, said they were delighted to be joining an “exclusive group of likeminded agents”.
“Aligning ourselves with a network of industry leaders in CT Partners will ensure greater opportunities for our business with strengthened buying and negotiating powers, along with the full transparency of supplier payments. We look forward to what the future of travel holds and to be working towards shared successes with our new colleagues after such a challenging period,” Matheson and Moss said.
Kay Franklin from The Travel Agency remarked: “I am excited to join CT Partners, I believe this group to be truly independent, offering a transparent and decisive model for the future of the industry.”
Now as shareholders in CT Partners, they will be able to contribute to the future direction and growth of the group thanks to the equal voting rights enjoyed by all members.
Matt Masson, CEO of CT Partners said he was thrilled to welcome agencies of the calibre of Jigsaw Travel and The Travel Agency into the fold, saying both are “well-established, successful businesses”.
“I look forward to working closely with our CT Partners Members to ensure they are well-positioned to take advantage of the recovery. It is a privilege to be a part of such an entrepreneurial and collaborative network of experienced members,” Masson added.
Jigsaw Travel and The Travel Agency were previously part of Helloworld’s Magellan Travel network.
