News - Anchors aweigh: The UK Holiday Group seals partnership with naval shipmates

The UK Holiday Group joins forces with the Conference of Naval Associations

The UK Holiday Group has joined forces with the Conference of Naval Associations (CONA) to offer a tailored holiday service to its thousands of members.

CONA is a loose federation of like-minded naval associations which offers membership benefits – which now include discounts on holidays and other travel services with The UK Holiday Group.

And CONA itself will benefit as The UK Holiday Group will make a donation to the association for every holiday that is booked.

Harold Burke, sales director at The UK Holiday Group – the parent of just for groups! –  said: “We have more than 30 years of experience in the travel sector, arranging holidays for groups and individuals, and we specialise in the over-55s market.

“It means we can offer great deals and tailored services for CONA members – who not only receive a great price but also know that their bookings help boost CONA coffers!

“There are currently 20 associations under the growing CONA umbrella, and thousands of members, so their bookings can potentially be worth tens of thousands of pounds in donations to CONA.”

Paul Quinn OBE, general secretary of the Royal Naval Association and chairman of the CONA Working Group, added: “The feedback we have had about this new service is very good.

“Already we have made arrangements for The UK Holiday Group to transport hundreds of our members to a service to launch the new Navy Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum, which coincides with the Royal Naval Association AGM in Coventry. 

“Later in the year, the group is providing transport for the Association of Wrens (Women of the Royal Naval Services) National Reunion in Warwick.

“There are lots of offers planned for our members to enjoy short breaks based around these events, as well as other reunions, AGMs and themed days and holidays.”
