Cosmos Holidays Reports Strong Start to Peak Trading

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwire) -- 02/01/13 -- Cosmos, the UK's largest independent tour operator, has reported a stronger than forecast start to the peaks sales campaign, with sales across brands significantly ahead of forecast and prior year.

Hugh Morgan, MD of The Monarch Travel Group said, "We have had an excellent start to our peaks campaign. We went out with a very clear message for our package holidays of low deposits, great value for money and ATOL bonding, and consumers have responded to this.

There are undoubtedly more consumers buying in peaks this year versus last year when the Queen's Jubilee, European Football Championship and of course, Olympics encouraged some travellers to hold off buying. In a package market that is showing 1% growth for summer '13, we are significantly outperforming. In fact, we had our best ever sales day on 5th January, with sales for that week up 30% year on year and this week sees sales up by 50%" Morgan continued, "Our marketing message has been strong and it is delivering exactly what we intended; higher consumer recognition of the brand at a time when we have launched our most comprehensive range of holidays, with an increased flying programme and unrivalled flexibility".

Monarch Travel Group's other trade brands, Avro and somewhere2stay, have also fared well in early season sales, with passenger numbers again exceeding expectations. Morgan commented, "Sales in our dynamic packaging brands are also very strong. Monarch Airlines has gone into new bases at Leeds Bradford and East Midlands airports, and has increased its aircraft numbers for summer '13. That has allowed us to offer more flight seats to the trade through Avro, and we've taken additional bed stock into somewhere2stay to support the increased flying programme - it's all adding up to be a very positive story".
