Weekend tour investment from Turenne Capital

Leader of packaged holiday gift packs secures first-round financing

Turenne Capital along with Centre Ouest Expansion have jointly invested €1.1 million in Weekendtour, the French specialist of all inclusive holiday packages developed in partnership with works Councils and local tourist offices. This investment is meant to support Weekendtour strong growth.

The company offers thematic short stay holidays sold as gift sets and distributed by major retailers, on the Internet and through works Councils. Weekendtour was set up in 2006 by Alexis Vervelle and Richard Alexander. The company has grown thanks to strong partnerships with work councils, local tourist offices, and with different labels (“Gîte de France”, “Bienvenu à la Ferme” and “Tables et Auberges de France”). The company, which owns a travel agency license has, since its creation, always laid emphasis on the quality of its offer and guarantees availability.

Financière Cambon was hired to advise the company on its first financing round.
