Stepin GmbH, a leading provider of overseas stays, has been taken over as part of a succession plan by ibis acam. Stepin GmbH (‘Student Travel and Education Programmes International’) is one of the leading providers of overseas stay programmes for young people in Germany. Since 1997, Stepin has specialised in high school stays, work and travel programmes, au-pair intermediary services and language visits for young people. With around 40 employees at the company headquarters in Bonn and a federal network of youth advisers, Stepin supports young people in all aspects of their trip abroad.

With ibis acam, Stepin has found an experienced partner with whom both the product portfolio and the client structure can be further developed. This provides Stepin with a foundation for growth opportunities in both existing and new fields with the development of the market shares in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
