Contiki is the Brightest 2013 Christmas Star for 1STS

Contiki Holidays for 18-35’s was the “star performer” in 2013 among One Stop Touring Shop’s four brands in Ireland, Sharon Jordan, Business Manager for 1STS in Ireland, told travel agents and media who were hosted for a Christmas lunch at the Residence in St Stephen’s Green, Dublin, on Friday 6th December. A new campaign featuring Anchorman, which includes Contiki at the start, will be launching soon.

For 2014, the centenary of the start of World War One is proving to be a major focus, while the new Aer Lingus routes to San Francisco and Toronto will offer great opportunities, said Sharon.
