Over the time, it became the Brazilian consumers’ favorite brand, leading the segment of vacation trips and leisure with receptive services and also the largest retail chain and travel and tourism franchising of Brazil.


As part of the expansion and perpetuation of its businesses, CVC innovated in 2013 when became a public traded company, in the market of the highest demanding level of corporate governance, being the only travel company to be present in Ibovespa.

However, it was mainly from 2015 on that CVC gave its largest evolutionary step of its entire corporate history, starting a purchasing process in the travel sector of companies and different brands in segments that complement leisure travels, which would originate two years later the CVC Corp, the largest travel and tourism group of the Americas.

In 2016, Experimento Intercâmbio Cultural (with more than 50 years of expertise at language courses and exchange programs abroad) was purchased.


In 2017, CVC Corp became the new controlling shareholder of other two companies: TREND Operadora (focused on business and leisure travels distributed via independent travel agencies) and Visual Turismo (dedicated to niches like ecotourism, honeymoon trips, resorts and charming and sophisticated lodging).

The corporation keeps analyzing the best opportunities of purchasing inside and outside Brazil and also walks towards the innovation of its businesses and strengthening of its brands, distribution channels and relations with business partners to fly higher and higher.
