Hotelbeds has acquired transfer specialist HolidayTaxis with terms of the deal undisclosed.
The acquisition enables the Spain-based bedbank to strengthen its ancillary arm which was recently renamed Beyond the Bed.
According to a statement UK-based HolidayTaxis offers 21,000 transfer routes across 150 countries.
It was created in the U.K. in 2002.
The plan is for the brand to retain independence with its existing chief executive Ian Coyle staying on. It joins Hotelbeds existing ancillary offering of transfers, activities, tickets, theme parks, car hire, travel insurance and tours.
