Abercrombie & Kent Group has bought Cox & Kings’s UK travel business out of administration

Cox & Kings was founded in 1758 and specialises in luxury tours and holidays in destinations across Africa, Asia, Europe and South America.

Abercrombie & Kent said it safeguards all current and future bookings and will see “substantially all” 66 UK jobs transfer to the new owner.

Kerry Golds, Managing Director of Abercrombie & Kent, added: “We’re committed to investment in Cox & Kings. It’s a renowned brand with an experienced and dedicated team that I’m looking forward to working with. I’m confident that with their strong trade relationships and loyal client base, we can take Cox & Kings to the next level.”

Geoffrey Kent, A&K Founder and Co-Chairman, added: “I am excited to be adding the Cox & Kings business to the Abercrombie & Kent family. The acquisition expands our portfolio of product offerings in the UK, particularly with their established escorted touring programme. This is just the start of our growth plans in the UK and globally.”
