The company enjoys an excellent reputation for providing a high quality service to its global customers and suppliers, and has offices in London, Edinburgh, Hong Kong, Prague and Belgrade. The current management team has led the business for over 20 years, and plans to expand and develop the JACOB Online business throughout Europe and Asia, to take advantage of the rapid growth in the online travel sector.
