This follows BookaBed’s best sales year in 2011, winning the Irish Travel Trade Award for ‘Best Accommodation Provider’ for the second year in the row and winning Worldchoice Ireland’s Favourite Worldchoice Business Partner at its 2011 conference. “It has been a great year so far and we would like to thank all agents for their support and for their votes in the awards,” added Lee.

“Due to the increase in business, BookaBed has employed two new members of staff, with Leah Dowler and more recently Karen Despard joining the team. They bring great knowledge and experience to BookaBed and I have no doubt they will excel in their positions here in the company.”
