Hello <<First Name>>
Thanks to everyone who booked with me this year and long may you continue to do so. To those who haven't please consider doing so next year. Most tours and airfares you see online I can offer the same price. And I make a few dollars.
And remember I use my own operators in various countries of the world which means better prices and better support on the ground.
Hope the fat man in red looks after you and I'll raise a wee dram to you on Hogmanay.
