Despite the current economic climate, customer demand for holidays remains higher than ever with our homeworking travel consultants reporting a record-breaking October.
Not only were holiday sales up 133% compared to pre-Covid levels in October 2019 but consumers are spending more on their holidays too, with current booking values at £4,285 per holiday, compared to £3,495 in October 2019.
October isn’t the only month that has seen soaring profits with the total sales for 2022 already surpassing previous years.
Our co-founder Steve Witt said:
“Our soaring sales figures dispel the myth that the financial climate is affecting people’s desire to book holidays. Our sales success shows that holidays are essential and non-negotiable to the British consumer.
It seems that no matter what happens in the world, spending precious time with loved ones is clearly a priority. More people are booking further ahead too, to ensure deals are locked in and the best destinations and prices are guaranteed.”
Some of our consultants celebrating a record year include husband and wife team, Mark and Isobel McCardie, who recently made £1 million in holiday sales in just one month, and Rachael Coyne who, together with her husband Colman, made £1.3m in sales since the beginning of 2022.
“We normally have a peak booking season that runs from January to March. This year, peak booking season has kept on running and shows no sign of stopping. January will be even busier and so there is no better time to be a travel consultant.”
With Steve Witt predicting that there will be a 340% year-on-year increase in holiday bookings in the January to March 2023 period, there’s no better time to switch careers and join our winter training to become a homeworking travel agent.
