The reaction we have received from our trade partners, readers, followers and subscribers following our announcement of the acquisition of Travelfinders is simply overwhelming. Both Peter and Don were for once lost for words, with the amount of goodwill and best wishes received as we set course for the next leg of our journey with our market leading brands. There is a lot more to come over the coming weeks and months so stay tuned to Travelbiz and for more great news.


Travelfinders is Ireland’s leading consumer focused portal with the largest active database of Irish holiday makers and subscribers. Travelfinders was established in 1993 by Peter O’Hanlon promoting and supporting the wholesale and retail travel trade sector at home and abroad, along with local and international hotel partners.


Don Shearer and Peter O’Hanlon have worked together in the travel industry supporting each other in various roles for over 30 years. This meeting of minds and acquisition is a result of a very strong business and personal relationship that has grown out of a mutual respect for what they have both achieved, establishing the largest and most followed trade and consumer focused brands in Ireland.


The acquisition positions the Travelbiz group as the largest and single biggest provider of trade and consumer focused coverage in Ireland via an unrivalled reach supporting trade partners at home and abroad seeking real leverage in the Irish market. The group will also be launching a number of new products and collaborations over the coming months as part of their expansion into the corporate and business travel sector.


Peter will be heading up a new sales division along with the Travelfinders team and will be working with Don and the Travelbiz team as part of the expansion and business development of the group.


Don and Peter would like to thank all of their trade partners for all of their support and look forward to unveiling their new products and services over the coming weeks.
