Travel Counsellors Ireland has recorded its best year to date in 2019, with sales of over €34 million. In its fourteenth year of consecutive growth, the leading Irish homeworking travel company smashed records again last year, with an 11% increase in sales, along with hitting a milestone target of 80 Travel Counsellors operating across the country.

Alongside Travel Counsellors’ leisure travel offering, growing demand from the corporate travel sector has played a significant role in the company’s increasing sales figures.

General Manager of Travel Counsellors Ireland, Cathy Burke says: “2019 was a fantastic year for Travel Counsellors, with another record-breaking 12 months for both corporate and leisure travel sales.

“We are now heading into year 15 in the Irish market and it looks like 2020 is already shaping up to be another hugely successful year for Travel Counsellors. The 2019 results are a testament to the hard work, care and attention our individual Travel Counsellors, along with the team in our Irish head office, put into ensuring the thousands of customers that use Travel Counsellors receive an unrivalled service.”

Cathy adds that as Travel Counsellors celebrates its 15th anniversary in Ireland this year, the focus is on continuing to foster partnerships with existing franchise holders while building new partnerships with those wishing to start their own travel businesses. “We put people at the heart of everything we do,” she says. “We provide entrepreneurs with the tools, technology and support to build flourishing leisure and corporate travel businesses as part of a company that truly cares. We were delighted to welcome our 80th Travel Counsellor last year and look forward to meeting, working and growing with new Travel Counsellors that will come on board throughout the year and become part of our connected team.”
