Tracey has spent the last 11 years of her 35 year travel industry career with the company.

"We are delighted to leave Carrick Travel in the very capable hands of Tina and Tracey, with whom we have enjoyed a close friendship for many years," she said.

"Our well travelled and dedicated team have played a huge part in our success over the years, and Mike and I are very grateful for this, and confident that they will provide equally great support to Tina and Tracey for years to come."
