Best Travel Agents in the UK: Shortlist success!
January 9, 2019

We’ve been shortlisted as one of the best travel agencies in the UK, according to industry bible The Travel Trade Gazette (TTG).

Over 500 travel agencies were considered for TTG’s Top 50 Travel Agencies 2019 – in association with Kuoni – from which a shortlist has been devised. The top 50 agencies will be officially unveiled at a glittering ceremony in April.

TTG Media group editor Pippa Jacks said: “Now in its fourth year, our Top 50 Travel Agencies initiative takes us the length and breadth of the country to uncover stories of brilliant agents going the extra mile for their customers, giving great value, and serving their communities.

“With extremely stiff competition once again this year, any high street agency that has made it onto the shortlist should be extremely proud.”

Stacey Turland, our Chelmsford branch manager (far left), said:

We’re so proud and excited to have been recognised as one of the best travel agencies in the country. Our regular clients often tell us so, but it is fantastic for our efforts to have been noticed by the Travel Trade Gazette!”

The shortlisting stage was undertaken by a panel of 50 travel suppliers including airlines, tour operators, cruise lines and car hire providers, who rated hopeful agencies according to their business performance, customer service, expertise, and innovation. In the next stage of judging, a TTG journalist will visit each shortlisted agency to carry out an assessment.
