TORONTO — Agents can lock in 2018 prices for their clients when booking Royal Irish Tours for 2019 travel.
The offer applies to 2019 First Class Coach Tours and was launched due to growing demand from agents, said Conor Duffy, Vice President at Royal Irish. “We thought it was important to get the 2019 tours in our booking system as early as possible. Many agents have expressed a desire to book their clients for next year already, so it’s a win-win for us and agents that they are now available,” he said.
Royal Irish Tours will honour 2018 prices on all of its 2019 First Class Coach Tours for Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales until May 10, 2018. All 2019 departures will also be guaranteed.
Due to currency fluctuations, 2019 prices are not yet certain so booking early is the best way to get clients the greatest savings, notes the company.
Jonathan Sargeant, RIT’s Sales Manager, added: “Many agents book their clients’ vacations up to 18 months out, so we are beginning to get a lot of 2019 requests. We have seen a huge increase in group requests too, some even for 2020!”
Royal Irish’s 2018 First Class Coach Tours are selling “extremely well”, said the company, with additional departures added for 2019 for top-selling tours. Its most popular Ireland trip is the 14-night ‘Shamrock Royal’, which includes visits to Titanic Belfast, the Giant’s Causeway and the Cliffs of Moher, not to mention a medieval banquet and an entertainment evening with Irish music.
