Dominic Burke (MD Travel Centres) reports on 2018 bookings whilst visiting his members in Ireland.

“Last week, mornings were quiet but afternoons very busy. This week should be even busier again because kids are back in school. Consumers are balking at big increase in prices but booking nonetheless. Consumer confidence appears high and purse strings have certainly loosened. Conspicuous consumption back with us again. Cruise doing well as is long haul. North America should also be a winner in 2018 because of weak dollar. Iceland is trending as are all the usual resorts in Spain and Portugal.”
