Pat Dawson (CEO ITAA) gives Travelbiz an update on how members are trading post Christmas and in the first week of full January 2018 trading.


“Pre Xmas members were a lot busier than in previous years and there was a much bigger take up on vouchers and week end beaks as Christmas gifts to Europe than experienced in previous years.


There is no doubt that big value bookings are rolling in since offices were opened in the New Year so a reason to be optimistic, but as we know from previous January's ‘One swallow does not make a summer’. So despite talks of big increases in sales, let's hope everyone has a great 2018 and profitable one, which is what matters. There are 7 million trips to be sold, the question is ‘Who gets them’?”
