Cloud-based communications technology provider babble has joined Abta as a partner.

The move comes as the firm targets expansion into the UK travel sector.

Current travel clients include operators such as Secret Escapes and Attraction Tickets Direct; and hotels such as Park Plaza, Guoman Hotels and Jurys Inn.

The company is talking to more than ten other travel businesses following its focus on travel.

Andrew Crowe, consultant for babble, said: “Becoming an Abta Partner was the sensible step for us to increase our presence within the travel sector, a strategic area for us in 2019.

“We are delighted to be part of the Abta community and look forward to learning more about the issues particularly facing travel.”
