AN independent Travel Agent in York is celebrating its best year to date with rising sales and two award wins.

Founded nine years ago, Conexo Travel in Haxby has this year seen sales hit a 27% year on year increase as its customer base grows.

In 2017 the business, which employs a team of four, also secured Travel Agency of the Month from Funway Travel, part of the US owned Mark Travel Corporation, and received Advocate of the Month recognition from Silversea Cruises. David Carruthers of Conexo, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have been selected by two tour operators from more than 4,000 travel agencies across the UK, and we feel this is not just an accolade for Conexo Travel but also reflects the tremendous loyalty shown by our customers.”
