A UK-BASED luxury travel company has credited Barbados for a huge turnaround in its fortunes over the past few years.

According to ITC Luxury Travel’s chief executive officer Jennifer Atkinson, while the tour operator offers holidays to any destination in the world, Barbados is still its number one selling destination.

Speaking to the WEEKEND NATION during a cocktail reception at Fusion Restaurant, Limegrove Centre, Atkinson reported that the company had achieved its most successful year to date.

She said although ITC provided holidays to exotic places such as Dubai, the Maldives, Galapagos Islands, Alaska and Halkidiki, Greece, travellers still preferred to visit Barbados. (RB)
