17 years ago Travel Counsellors set up their Irish business headed by Cathy Burke and we have just had our best ever financial year with sales of €40 Million. The business also has a record number of “Gold TC’s” with 15% of all Irish TC’s reaching the top earning milestone to year end 31 October 2022, setting a new record in the global TC business. This includes New to Gold TC’s Kathy O’Sullivan, Katrina McMullan, Claire Maher, Imelda McCarthy and Sinead Lonergan who join the elite group.
The trading record follows the announcement of the global business having it’s best ever year of over £800 Million from combined locations in UK, Netherlands & Belgium, South Africa, UAE and of course Ireland.
Corporate Travel now represents 15% of the Irish business while Cruise bookings are making a strong comeback with the company.
Top selling destinations for Irish customers travelled during this financial year are Spain in top spot, followed by USA, Italy, Maldives, Greece, Portugal, Mexico and UAE.
Cathy Burke, MD at Travel Counsellors says; “To be celebrating our best ever year out of 17 is something I hadn’t envisaged in the dark days of 2020, but I am so proud of our TC community including our fabulous team in the Cork office for making this happen. While Spain continues to be our top seller in terms of departures during the year, we are now seeing big increases in long haul bookings for the coming year as people become more relaxed about travelling again. I am looking forward to 2023 and us breaking more records”
