Luxury travel company Abercrombie & Kent is in advanced discussions concerning the proposed acquisition of the UK business of Cox & Kings.
A&K’s proposal will safeguard all current and future bookings and employees of Cox & Kings UK and involve new investment in the business.
As a heritage brand, with a loyal client database, A&K believes the two brands complement each other to create a combined brand proposition that will grow the UK luxury travel market.
Geoffrey Kent, founder and co-chairman, commented: “I’m excited at the prospect of adding the Cox & Kings UK business to the Abercrombie & Kent family. The acquisition will expand our portfolio of product offerings in the UK, particularly with their established escorted touring programme. This is just the start of our growth plans in the UK and globally.”
“We can take Cox & Kings to the next level”
Kerry Golds, managing director, added: “We’re committed to investing in Cox & Kings. It’s a renowned brand with an experienced and dedicated team that I’m looking forward to working with. I’m confident that with their strong trade relationships and loyal client base, we can take Cox & Kings to the next level.”
