Astratis has bought fellow travel technology firm Travel Options for an undisclosed sum.

The enlarged company will launch new technology brand and product at next week’s Travel Technology Show.

Astratis focuses on technology for medium to large operators while Travel Options specialises in technology for small to medium operators.

Astratis claims the purchase of Travel Options makes it the second largest reservations and distribution technology firm for UK operators and believes it will take the top spot with the launch of its new product.

The enlarge company has 70 tour operator clients. The two companies will continue to act separately.

Astratis chief executive Steve Watson  said the Travel Options purchase is part of a “major acquisition and product development drive”.
