Voyages Laurier Du Vallon, a family business founded by Jacques Laroche in 1963, quickly became the largest independent travel agency in Quebec. Then the founder’s daughter, Nicole Laroche, took up the cause by laying the solid foundations for a new development cycle. In 1995, the company joined Groupe Tanguay to boost its growth.
In August 2017, Voyages Laurier Du Vallon reached a milestone in its growth in Quebec when Flight Centre Travel Group acquired a significant stake in the Quebec company.
This transaction will in particular catalyze the growth of Laurier Du Vallon in Quebec, help make the company more competitive, and provide needed impetus for the development of corporate travel services.
Flight Centre is an Australian company, established in Canada since 1995, and already well ensconced nationwide with more than 150 service points in Quebec, Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Nova Scotia. According to the Australian agency, its development in North America includes the strengthening of its position in Quebec, a booming market. Flight Centre is therefore relying on the expertise of Laurier Du Vallon and its in-depth knowledge of the Quebec market to develop the second largest market in Canada.
