Holidaysplease has reported a 17% increase in bookings and a 20% hike in revenues for the past 12 months compared with the previous year.

Speaking at the homeworking group’s annual conference in Stratford Manor in Warwickshire, director Richard Dixon said average sales of its agents had also surpassed the £5,000 mark for the first time.

Enquiry numbers for the last 12 months compared with the previous 12 months were up by 8%; the conversion rate of enquiries to bookings was up 9%, while passenger numbers were up 18% and homeworker earnings up 21%.

Homeworkers were also told they were getting closer to their target of £30 million in sales across the board for a rolling 12 month period – when the group has pledged to take the whole company to Mauritius.

Turnover for the 12 months to date currently sits at £26.5 million and is predicted to hit £30 million in April next year.

Director Richard Dixon said the trip incentive – which will see all 97 homeworkers invited to Mauritius free of charge for four to five days – had brought the company together as well as helping to boost productivity.

He said: “It’s a massive investment for our business to take the whole company away but it’s worth it for the way it’s brought everyone together and that was our primary goal; it’s created a team bond.”
