Vision Travel Acquires Edmonton’s Globetrotter Travel

Vision Travel Acquires Edmonton’s Globetrotter Travel

Michael Broadhurst, executive vice-president of Vision Travel Solutions today announced the recent acquisition of Globetrotter Travel, one of Edmonton’s landmark travel agencies.

Globetrotter was established in 1956, making it one of the city’s longest-enduring agencies with a strong reputation in group and luxury/premium travel services.

Owners Bill and Sue Pechtel will continue to serve clients, many of whom have been with them for decades, along with the entire multilingual Globetrotter staff who will be working out of Vision’s location in St. Albert, Alberta.

Vision plans to continue to expand through the acquisition of existing blue-chip agencies whose owners wish to stay in the industry, while becoming part of a larger organization which will take on much of the administration.
