Sceptre: Travel to Ireland on the Rise

Sceptre Tours, which sells only Ireland and only through travel agents, has reported that travel to Ireland is on the rise. "The New Year looks extremely promising with Ireland on the forefront of the latest vacation trends," said Chris Accomando, president of Sceptre Tours. "With the Rider Cup coming to Ireland, as well as plenty of other exciting attractions, our Emerald Partner agents are extremely encouraged and eager to make 2006 a record year." Christopher Woolson, president of, Philadelphia, said: "Typically this time of year is slow, but end-of-year bookings for 2006 travel have really helped my forecasts for next year. So far I have 11 percent of my sales for 2006 after doubling my sales to Ireland in 2005." Sceptre Tours uses its advertising budget to promote Ireland vacation products through its Emerald Partner agencies and says it has the most flexible co-op marketing program in the industry.
