WINNIPEG, MB (July 21, 2015) – Scootaround Inc. is pleased to announce the acquisition of CareVacations USA.
Founded in 1988 in Edmonton, Canada, CareVacations started off a small travel specialty company, and has since grown to now provide service to most major cruise lines across North America. Over the past 20 years, CareVacations has grown its network and currently provides mobility rentals for all special need guest requirements for cruise vacations throughout North America and at select European ports.
Scootaround Inc. is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of CareVacations USA and will continue to operate the business with the same exceptional customer service and support CareVacations’ partners have come to know, with the added value an international major provider like Scootaround can offer.
“Scootaround shares the same positive values that we do,” said President of CareVacations, Donald Stilwell. “Scootaround will get to know the CareVacations team and our incredible network of agents and will assess our operation and see why we have become so successful over the past 20 years. Scootaround’s vast network and International presence will then take CareVacations to the next level. This is a very exciting time for both companies and our customers alike”.
“The desire to travel by the segment of the population requiring assistive devices for mobility assistance is escalating, along with the demographics associated with our aging population,” said Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Scootaround, Dick Kerr. “Scootaround has a tremendous track record for being at the forefront of innovative solutions to address this opportunity. The acquisition of CareVacations is yet another step in maintaining our commitment, while expanding our reach”.
