Club La Costa travel agency up for top award
Club La Costa Travel has been shortlisted for the Retail Travel Company of the Year TTG Travel Awards, run by the industry’s leading trade magazine, Travel Trade Gazette.
Julie Fenlon, Group Travel Manager of Club La Costa Travel, commented that Club La Costa Travel had responded to significant advances in many areas as new CLC resorts in Turkey and Florida had led to increased demand for the company’s travel products. Cruising had grown enormously in popularity – as a result of the work of the specialist team of agents and the excellent relationship developed with major cruise suppliers, there had been a 350 per cent increase in bookings and income generated for the period 2006 to 2010.
“In the last two years we have seen year-on-year growth of 77 per cent (2008-09) and 31 per cent (2009-10), and projections for 2011 indicate a further 34 per cent year-on-year increase. Our target is to achieve 1000 individual cruise bookings in 2011, compared to just 168 in 2006,” said Julie.
