Otravo was established at the start of 2014 by the merger of Vliegtickets and WTC and added Schipholtickets to its brands in December 2015. In February 2016 a Private Equity firm took a majority shareholding in the company, with the objective to become a leading European Online Travel Agency through the combination of internal growth and acquisitions. This led to the acquisitions of Flygstolen (Nordics) in July 2016, VakantieDiscounter (Benelux, Packages) in February 2017 and Interneto Partneris (Baltics) in October 2017. In May 2018 Travelgenio was added, which means Otravo now sells over 3 million trips/holidays per year, generating close to 2 billion EUR in gross Sales.
