Travel agents have access to a range of assets to promote the deals, including social media, window cards, in-store posters and email templates, while a campaign will also run with Classic FM radio station from September 20 for two weeks.

The operators have also brought out a 2022 Touring Guide Travel Planner. The new 2022 brochure is available online and in print for agencies to rack.

The operator said it was the right time to start driving forward sales following an increase in traffic to the website and agent feedback of more enquiries.

Chief executive Giles Hawke said: “Now, finally, with access increasing to countries across the globe, we can move on from melancholy and make plans for moving experiences. It’s time to make comeback plans to the world we miss.”
