The Travel Corporation has announced that Ruth Hilton, Sales and Business Development Director for Trafalgar and CostSaver in the UK & Ireland, will take on the additional responsibility of overseeing sister brands Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold following the departure of Paul Melinis, Director of Sales of Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold, after seventeen years with the business.

In a newly created role, Ruth will be responsible for the sales, marketing and business development of all four guided holiday brands in the UK & Ireland, effective immediately. She will manage a dedicated marketing team and a field sales team of six that will now operate across all the brands, allowing them to really meet the touring needs of any agent, from the value, flexi-touring proposition of CostSaver through to the luxury escorted journeys by Luxury Gold. Each sales individual’s territory will become smaller, allowing them to forge deeper relationships with agent partners, create more detailed plans and ultimately take a more collaborative and tailored approach
