MIH Group Buys 51% Stake In B2B Travel Company Tek Travels

MIH Group, a subsidiary of Naspers, and owner of Ibibo, has acquired a 51% stake in Gurgaon-based travel company Tek Travels, which owns B2B travel portal Travel Boutique Online, reports The Economic Times. The financial details of the transaction have not been disclosed.Travel Boutique Online, which launched in 2006, offers travel services for travel agents, including airline, train and hotel reservation and holiday package deals. It also provides charter and choppers and helps with car rentals, bus bookings and travel insurance. The company offers white-labelled solutions for agents to offer B2B and B2C travel bookings, online. The existing management of the company will continue to run it, according to the report.

MIH Group, which already runs travel portal Goibibo.com, hopes to benefit from the company’s offerings in the domestic online business travel space, with this acquisition, Tek Travel intends top expand in international markets. We feel that MIH might want to integrate Tek Travel’s B2B solutions to its existing travel property, getting access to its inventory and  technology platform.  In India, MIH has an active presence in the e-commerce space through internet assets such as ibiboGoibibo.comTradus.in, payment gateway – Payu.in, and Gaadi.com.
