Hays Travel has bought former Hays Independence Group member CAS Travel in Norfolk.

The travel agency has two branches in Alysham and Sheringham, employing eight staff.

Both shops will be rebranded Hays Travel, bringing the number of Hays’ branches to 150. All staff will transfer across to work for Hays Travel.

CAS has been part of the Hays Travel Independence Group since 2001.  The business has annual sales of more than £3 million.

Jane Schumm, retail and training director for Hays Travel, said: “I’m really pleased that the business continues to be so successful and we are able to make acquisitions such as these, as well as consistently open new Hays branches across the country. CAS Travel has always been a great Independence Group member and I’d like to welcome all the staff on board.”
