ABSTRACT
The article reports that travel agents have broadly welcomed the late release of summer 2010 brochures. Global Travel Lounge managing director Peter Buckell said the move had helped this year's late sales, while Broadland Travel owner Nick Lee said the delay had led to a rise in bookings for next summer. However, Kinver Travel Centre owner Sue Foxall denied the delay had helped agents focus on late sales.
