Am in an airport lounge struggling to stay in touch with the moves and shakes around the Travel.com.au acquisition. Now we learn that top tier Australian wholesaler and second tier online retailer AOT has joined the hunt for Travel.com.au. According to the SMH they have already got their hands on 7.8% of the stock and are looking for more. AOT already operate needitnow.com.au and content player Travelmate. Also recently snapped up little known player NeedtoEscape (story here). At the very least AOT boss Andrew Burnes has built a nice little blocking stake. Anyone else out their want to join in?
Thanks to Grah from Voysage who sent me the story first.
