TravelSolutions Guernsey are delighted to announce that we have been selected as one of the top five high street agencies in the South West region, as part of a power-list of the nation’s best agents by industry bible the *Travel Trade Gazette.
More than 950 travel agencies and branches put themselves forward for consideration for TTG’s Top 50 Travel Agencies 2017 – in association with Kuoni – from which a shortlist of 90 finalists across 18 categories has been devised.
On March 13, 2017, the winning 50 agencies that have earned a place in the Top 50 list for 2017 will be announced at a glittering ceremony at The Vox Centre in Birmingham.
TTG editor Pippa Jacks said: “Now in its second 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.
“We were overwhelmed to have 950 branches and companies put themselves forward to be considered for the list this year, and any that have made the shortlist should be extremely proud.”
Channel Island leisure manager Natalie Hughes said: “We are delighted to have been selected as one of the top 5 agencies in the South West, we are in competition with some outstanding agencies, so to make the shortlist is a real achievement and we thank everyone for their support.”
The shortlisting stage was undertaken by a panel of 60 travel suppliers including airlines, tour operators and car hire providers, who rated hopeful agencies according to their business performance, customer service and innovation. In the next stage of judging, a TTG journalist will visit each shortlisted agency to carry out an assessment.
