LONDON, UK - 1st May 2018 - Luxury LGBT travel company OutOfOffice.com has today completed an acquisition of Out4You Ltd, the company behind major travel websites TravelGayAsia.com and TravelGayEurope.com.
The TravelGay websites are the most visited gay travel websites receiving tens of millions of unique visitors a year. They specialise in delivering the most comprehensive LGBT travel content and are market leaders in their respective territories for providing impartial information about hotels, gay clubs and gay bars. The sites are also the best performing in the LGBT travel market in terms of annual turnover and the number of room nights sold each year.
Founder of OutOfOffice.com, Darren Burn, said: “We have had two hugely lucrative years since the launch of OutOfOffice.com and this success has enabled us to now look at strategic acquisitions to grow our customer base and also our LGBT product offering. We have ambitious plans to expand the existing TravelGay websites, monetise them further and unify them under a new domain TravelGay.com which will become the world’s leading resource for LGBT travellers.”
Founder of TravelGay, Nigel Phillips, said: “We are pleased to have found a business that we believe can take what we’ve started to the next stage. We’ve followed Darren and his team at OutOfOffice.com for some time and are impressed with their future plans for the TravelGay brand.”
The business, which was purchased for a six-figure sum, will cement OutOfOffice.com’s position in the market as the world’s leading LGBT travel brand.
The site is looking to partner further with LGBT businesses worldwide and will soon be launching an updated design and increased country offering in order to ensure that all four corners of the globe are covered in the most comprehensive LGBT travel guide.
