Australians Cruising through the downturn

Travelscene American Express reports first quarter P&O sales up 135% yoy

APRIL 20 2009: Australians are making the most of the incredible travel deals on offer with Australia's leading travel network, Travelscene American Express, reporting a 135% year on year increase in sales for P&O Cruises alone for the 3 months of 2009.

"Our members around Australia are reporting not just record level of inquiries but also a significant increase in demand for cruise products," Travelscene American Express General Manager Jacqui Timmins said.

"Across the Travelscene American Express group, we have actually recorded a 135% increase in sales for P&O Cruises for the first three months of 2009 compared to the same period a year ago . Driven by our exclusive launch and relocation specials on the Pacific Jewel and Pacific dawn which finished this week."

"Plus, we're currently in the midst of a full scale airfare war, presenting a rare window of opportunity for consumers travelling to Europe, especially during the Australian winter."

"Airlines are suffering from lower passenger numbers during these challenging economic times. This type of sale represents a rare chance for Australians to save close to $1000 per person off normal airfares for peak season on some of the world's best airlines."

"Consumers are strategically and proactively moving to make the most of these unbelievable deals which are coming out day after day and which represent unprecedented savings.  We've branded 2009 as "The Year of Great Travel Deals" for a reason and our customers are looking to our members to help them choose the best possible deal for them.
