The Autorité de la concurrence clears the acquisition of the Vacances Héliades company by the Marietton group.

The notified transaction

On 20 November 2018, Marietton notified the Autorité de la concurrence of its intent to acquire Vacances Héliades.

Parties to the transaction

Marietton is active in the distribution of business and leisure trips via its network of agencies (under the brands Havas Voyages, Selectour, Carrefour Voyages and Auchan Voyages for instance).

Vacances Héliades is a French tour operator, especially known for its trips to Greece. 

The Autorité was able to rule out any competition issue

As the parties’ shares in the markets concerned are limited, the Autorité de la concurrence was able to rule out any competition concerns and clear the acquisition without conditions.
