Bales Worldwide has been purchased by Virgin Holidays.
Announcing the deal today, Bales managing director Mandy Nickerson said she would keep her position at the company while there would be no changes in the team. She added the operator would also keep its name.
She added: “Our news puts Bales alongside a widely respected name in the world of travel and at the same time enables us to keep all the things we love about Bales.
“Teaming up with Virgin opens a new chapter for us and one which I am really excited about.”
