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.
