Sales soar for Chameleon Worldwide
Chameleon Worldwide, the name behind leading specialist travel brands including Wildlife Worldwide, Walks Worldwide, Families Worldwide, Dive Worldwide, Oceans Worldwide and Schools Worldwide reports a significant uplift in bookings.
Comments Mark Wright, Managing Director of Chameleon: “Despite government cuts and uncertainty with the economy, 2011 is looking extremely rosy for our specialist brands. Demand for diving and walking holidays is well up on last year and the early signs are that the positive trend from March (which showed a 19% increase) seems to be continuing into April - bookings so far this month up almost 500% on the same period last year! There seems to be a general mood of optimism and people love to have a great holiday to look forward to.”
