Northern Ireland travel agents are urging the Executive to deliver tailored support to the sector in the next budget.

ABTA, ANITA (Association of Northern Ireland Travel Agents) and NITA's (Northern Ireland Tourism Alliance) plea to Stormont comes after the ONS figures showed a fall of 86% in economic output for the sector, making it the second worst hit sector during the pandemic.

And the latter groups say agents will suffer more hardships as support schemes end and because many travel businesses have not received any tailored financial help.
