With some 75 percent of Travel Counsellors’ customers feeling highly or fairly confident to book and travel, now that UK travel restrictions have been lifted, it is no surprise that the leading independent travel company is experiencing yet again, record-breaking sales, exceeding 2019 performance for yet another consecutive month!
The findings from a recent Travel Counsellor customer survey also show that half of respondents are planning two or more holidays abroad this year; with a quarter of respondents willing and able to spend more on their getaways.
In April 2022, UK leisure sales performed at 136 percent compared to 2019 levels and corporate bookings – largely from SMEs - outperformed at 133 percent on 2019. Also, 137 Travel Counsellors (TCs) had their best ever sales month in April 2022 – with nine of them each amassing over £200,000 in bookings.
Steve Byrne, CEO at Travel Counsellors, 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.
“Our diligent Travel Counsellors continue to curate bespoke experiences that exceed their clients’ requirements – be it a return trip to their favourite destination, a bucket list holiday or those all-important business trips.”
