Worldview Travel acquires TRL

Worldview Travel, a leading full service Virtuoso agency with offices across the US, has acquired Travel Resources Ltd. (TRL), an independently owned Canadian travel management company. Headquartered in Toronto, TRL has 30 years’ experience providing corporate travel services to blue chip clients throughout North America, with seven offices throughout Canada and the US. According to officials, TRL’s acquisition by Worldview will increase leverage with vendors and will give both companies the ability to share processes and procedures to develop the best practices that drive even greater efficiencies, resulting in better service and pricing for clients. As Canada’s largest independently owned travel management company, TRL will bring new expertise of the Canadian marketplace to Worldview Travel and its clients. Worldview Travel offices on both US coasts, in addition to the TRL offices in eastern and western Canada, gives the combined organization the ability to consolidate North American travel for customers of both companies and allows them the opportunity to provide customized travel management solutions with hands-on senior management involvement and availability. Travel Resources clients include Indigo Books & Music, Wind Mobile, Canaccord Financial, Olympus Canada Inc., Smart Centres and The Brick. “We are very excited about our association with Travel Resources. The very positive impressions we experienced during the due diligence phase have continued to be reinforced post acquisition,”said Ricci Zukerman, president of Worldview Travel. “Travel Resources has earned the loyalty of their clients and retained so many of them over many years as a result of superior service, industry leading technology and a staff consisting of the finest corporate travel professionals. We look forward to developing and improving the services provided to customers of both TRL and Worldview through the integration and sharing of best practices, new efficiencies and cross border expertise.”(
