Midcounties Co-op claims record sales

Midcounties Co-operative Travel has claimed bookings over the weekend hit a 20-year record high.

The independent agency reported record booking levels since Christmas with sales of summer 2012 holidays and cruises being particularly strong.

The Warwickshire-based agency group has also seen demand double at its online business cooptravel.co.uk.

Group general manager Alistair Rowland cited trust in the brand at a time when other travel companies have had financial difficulties, highlighted against the backdrop of a tough economic climate.

He said: “There has been significant negative publicity around the financial security of some of our competitors which is clearly working to our advantage.

“Over the years the travel industry has seen a number of financial failures but Co-operative Travel has always stood behind their clients to provide them with peace of mind. I believe that's what the public expect from the Co-op and why they trust us with their precious holiday booking.”

He added: “It is clear that people who want to book their holidays, and have something to look forward to, are choosing Co-operative Travel because they can trust our brand.”

Rowland advised consumers looking for specific dates or offers on child places to consider booking now using a low deposit scheme to help ease payments.
