Holiday comparison service travel.co.uk has axed three roles following a decision to slow down development and marketing in the current economic climate.
Managing director Ray Mason, who was responsible for launching the business five months ago, will leave in the New Year along with head of customer experience Mike Ramsden, once a series of site enhancements have been completed.
Meanwhile, marketing manager Vicky Smith is expected to leave the business shortly.
According to managing director Ray Mason visitor numbers and bookings delivered to agents have grown steadily with natural Google search results driving the majority of the traffic.
Plans to take the site to profitability in 2009 have had to be curtailed because of the financial crisis.
Mason said: “The timing of the downturn in the economy and the travel sector in particular could perhaps have been better for us launching a new online travel business. I am pleased to confirm that Travel.co.uk will continue to delight customers but it will now have just one fulfillment agent to provide consistency in delivering customer service.”
