Travel Counsellor books 200 trips worth £1.3m in a month

One of Travel Counsellors’ highest-selling business owners booked more than 200 trips last month worth £1.3 million – the biggest in the company’s 28 year history.

As many as 137 Travel Counsellors also had their best ever sales month in April – with nine of them each amassing more than £200,000 in bookings. 

The disclosure came as the firm revealed that three quarters of customers are feeling highly or fairly confident in booking and travel now that UK Covid travel restrictions have been lifted.

The findings from a customer survey also found that half of respondents are planning two or more holidays abroad this year; with a quarter willing to spend more.

UK leisure sales performed at 136% of pre-pandemic 2019 levels and corporate bookings – largely from SMEs – outperformed at 133%.

Chief executive Steve Byrne said: “We are delighted to see that the desire and demand for travel remains high – and that many of our TCs are continuing to experience their best ever months on record.

“As confidence in travel continues to increase alongside the further reduction in restrictions around the world, more holidaymakers and business travellers – largely SMEs – are once again booking their trips.

“It is a very exciting time for our business and it is abundantly clear that both our leisure and corporate customers want to travel and book with a trusted brand and personal travel advisor.”
