TravelManagers’ Finance & Commercial Manager, Tanyu Cilek

Home-based agent group TravelManagers has reported a massive 85.7 per cent average sales growth figure across its network for the month of December as the travel industry’s renaissance continues unbated.

The growth figure is a comparison to the same month in 2019, prior to the pandemic.

TravelManagers says it has seen a succession of record-breaking months in sales to close 2022, with some leisure specialists chalking up figures which would rival some corporate accounts.

In a trend pointing towards high-value sales, domestic holidays in Australia have climbed 58%, the company said, with Europe up 45% and South America rising 55%.

“Over the six months from July to December 2022, our PTMs have recorded an average of 52 percent growth compared with the equivalent six-month period in 2019,” said TravelManagers’ Finance & Commercial Manager, Tanyu Cilek.

“These PTMs are achieving leisure sales results at a level that would more commonly be seen in corporate, call centre situations,” Cilek added.

“The number of advisors on track for at least $1 million in sales this financial year has tripled since 2019, while those on track for $1.5 million-plus has doubled.”

Broken down by travel style, air bookings were up 64%, while land had climbed 46% and, in a sign befitting the uncertain social environment, sales of travel insurance were also up 44%.
