Scott Dunn accelerates Asian growth with Country Holidays acquisition

Inflexion is pleased to announce that our portfolio company, award-winning UK luxury tour operator Scott Dunn, will accelerate its growth in the Asian market with the acquisition of Country Holidays, a leading Singapore-based tailor-made holiday operator. The deal marks the second add-on for Scott Dunn since Inflexion backed the business in December 2014, having acquired San Diego-based Aardvark Safaris in April 2016.

Already present in Singapore for over a year, the transaction will make Scott Dunn the largest bespoke tour operator in Asia. Country Holidays was founded in 1994 by Theng Hwee Chang and today offers bespoke holidays to over 100 destinations worldwide. In addition to its Singapore headquarters, the business has offices in Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai and Dubai, which together employ more than 50 travel professionals. The business will be rebranded as Scott Dunn over the next 12 months, with the teams merging and Theng Hwee becoming CEO of Scott Dunn Asia.
