Record-Breaking Half-Year Results for Personal Travel Managers

Record-Breaking Half-Year Results for Personal Travel Managers

TravelManagers has achieved record-beating six-month sales results during the first half of 2023, exceeding its previous six-month record (January to June 2019) by a comfortable 29 percent.

“The numbers are even more impressive when compared with the same period in 2022,” notes TravelManagers’ Chief Operating Officer, Grant Campbell, “which we surpassed by a massive 104 percent.”

According to Campbell, the home-based travel network has achieved these results despite having 30 percent fewer personal travel managers (PTMs) than pre-pandemic.

“Our PTMs have been working incredibly hard, delivering month after month of record sales: since November 2022, there have been eight consecutive record-breaking months, including our biggest month ever in March 2023.”

Growth in the average sales value per customer has been a key contributor to overall growth, with Campbell revealing an increase of more than 50 percent compared with the same period in 2019, and almost 60 percent compared with January to June 2022.

“With average PTM commissions having increased alongside overall sales growth, TravelManagers’ business model means that our individual PTMs are reaping the financial rewards of their labours.”

PTMs such as Tanya Tyler says they are still as busy as ever, with plenty of enquiries and bookings coming in for the remainder of this year’s European summer and beyond: “I just completed a new booking for three people heading to Portugal later this month. “

“With July off to a strong start, we are on track for yet another record-breaking month, which will set us up well for an equally successful second half to 2023,” Campbell concludes.
