Clients include several colleges that provides a solid customer base. 70% of sales come from direct from the public and 30% from tour operators. Top Destinations are NY, D.C., Chicago, Nashville, Louisville, Cleveland and Columbus.
The company strictly charters, does not put trips together. Putting trips together is a future growth strategy, as there are fewer travel/tour agencies. This will mean higher margins and revenues. Over the past several years, many smaller travel agencies and bus companies have ceased operations. There seems to be an opportunity to combine bus operations with a dedicated travel agency, to market to a growing population of student and senior travel groups. Someone with the background and drive could expand into the travel business and triple the company’s market.
With the company’s excellent safety and maintenance records and diversity of clients, the base for expansion is already in place.
