Holiday specialist Caledonian Leisure says it is pleased that it has posted an annual turnover of over £40million for 2022, its first full year of trading, and is on course for further significant growth for the current year. The company, which operates under the Caledonian Travel and UKBreakaways brands, says it has seen rapid growth since launching in June 2021, recently reaching 600,000 customer bookings, and now employing 90 members of staff.

Managing Director Graham Rogers commented: “We have been delighted with the fantastic growth of the business over the last two years and will now look to build further upon these results as we continue to develop our programmes, channels and partnerships. Particularly, whilst the economic climate is impacting upon household budgets, we recognise the ongoing need to deliver great value and outstanding service to our growing customer base. Our customer first approach underpins everything we do and this is reflected in the positive reviews we have received.”

Commercial Director Martin Lock added: “The travel trade has played a pivotal role in our success to date, and we would like to thank our network of agents who have helped us deliver our award-winning service and experience to customers. We’ve forged some excellent partnerships with agents who have seen the benefit of dealing with such a forward thinking and responsive business, and look forward to worker closely with new and existing partners going forward.

“Our multi-channel campaigns have seen 2024 bookings surge ahead by over 30% on last year with an encouraging blend of both repeat and new customers. This has been supported by investment in the latest customer data analytics software which will enable us to target continued growth in both our traditional and new experience driven markets.”
