Fred. Olsen Travel is celebrating a 14% jump in trading profit during 2015.

It is the sixth consecutive year of record results for the Ipswich-based firm, which has 11 branches around East Anglia and the South of England.

Paul Hardwick, group retail manager at Fred. Olsen Travel, said: “I am extremely proud that we are able to report such positive news for the sixth year running.

“This success can only be down to the commitment, dedication and high level of service from each and every member of our team.

“We continuously train and develop our staff and always put the customer first.
