RJD backed Voyager acquires COGO28 March 2019
Class Tours, which trades under the Voyager School Travel (“Voyager”) brand, has acquired the group educational travel specialists COGO Travel (“COGO”).
Voyager is a specialist provider of overseas tours for schools and is best known for its premium language immersion programmes delivered by native-speaking staff at their centres in Northern France and Spain. RJD backed the MBO of Voyager in October 2017.
COGO offers specialist tours mainly to UK schools and colleges. The business has developed a number of exclusive and educational programmes with Disney and is one of a limited number of their UK preferred partners. COGO is well known for offering UK residential activity courses to primary schools.
Frank Bulman, Partner, RJD says: “The COGO acquisition is an important capital investment made by the Voyager platform which brings in both a complementary portfolio of tours and a school client base which can be introduced to Voyager’s innovative, centre led educational programmes.”
