Frank Mackin told Irish Travel Trade News: “We don’t get many bookings for our tours from fellow travel agents – but we do pay a full 10% commission.

“We do an insert in various newspapers every year. An Post did the whole of Co Wexford for us in the second week of January and the brochure was distributed as an insert by The Mail on Sunday on 15th January, The Herald on Wednesday 18th January, and by the Irish Independent on Saturday 21st January.

“We do the newspapers on a nationwide coverage basis and the whole exercise, including An Post, cost €27,000.

“The most popular escorted tour is our seven-night Transylvania & Dracula Country tour, which has a superb price of only €849 and six departure dates in 2017 – 24th May, 7th June, 12th July, 16th August, 6th September, and – for Halloween – 28th October. We also have a five-night Halloween in Transylvania tour on 29th October for only €599.”
