Premier World Discovery acquires AFC Vacations

Premier World Discovery, a 20-year-old guided travel company, has acquired AFC Vacations. 

Stephen Birkett, founder and co-president of Premier World Discovery, said the merger "provides major growth opportunity for both brands and offers an exciting opportunity to continue to evolve."

AFC Vacations founder and president Randy Case will continue in his current role, operating AFC as a separate division with the same executive team and the same focus from its current offices in San Diego.

Premier World Discovery is based in Redondo Beach, Calif. 

"This is a perfect match," Case said. "Both companies share similar philosophies and values, and we look forward to expanding our tour offerings to our guests and continue to grow the AFC Vacations brand under Premier World Discovery."
