UK 2024

At Albatross Travel, we pride ourselves on the knowledge and experience of our Contract Managers and their understanding of coach group travel. It’s true to say that they live and breathe their areas and have a real passion for creating innovative and varied products. Introducing Janine Cuff, Head of Contracting & Northern Ireland Specialist Janine says… “Perfectly compact, Northern Ireland has so much to offer for a coach holiday. We feature a wide range of hotels and itineraries throughout the country, from Derry to Armagh. Northern Ireland consistently delivers excellent service and locally produced cuisine with the warmest of Irish welcomes! This was evident at the hugely successful Coach Tourism Association (CTA) Conference & Workshop, held in Belfast in February 2023, where Northern Ireland superbly showcased to the UK coach industry what this stunning country has to offer.”

Our lovely Louise Fitzpatrick is a CTA Board Member and had this to say about the conference: “With the support of Tourism Ireland, the Coach Tourism Association delivered a fantastic conference, the first ever in Northern Ireland. Delegates attended fam trips to Derry-Londonderry, the Giant’s Causeway, Royal Hillsborough and central Belfast and experienced first-hand what a perfect destination Northern Ireland is for coach holidays. Each element paved the way for the ensuing business side of the conference, which was a great success. Just over 800 meetings were conducted during the workshop, with positive financial results being reported from our members.” Janine recommends… “Embrace a Giant Spirit highlights brilliant experiences recognised as distinctively Northern Irish to

delight and dazzle your customers. We are pleased to feature many of them in our 2024 packaged itineraries, including:
