British gay holiday company opens New York office

17/08/2009 13:17

The UK based gay travel company Mantrav International Group is opening a New York City office as business increases in the UK - despite the credit crunch.

The company, which was set up in California in 1990, but has been based in the UK since 2001, reports that business is up 22.5 per cent on last year and that it is expanding to become a global business by launching its services in America.

“Things are really going from strength to strength,” says company Director  Malcolm Hardy, “Business has skyrocketed in the past year and continue to surprise us each month as more people are turning back to the gay travel agent and away from the internet.


The group’s Club Mancha resort in Gran Canaria has been running at 92% capacity all through the current year despite the economy turn down. Mykonos appears to have been this year’s top destination in short haul and Thailand as long haul.
