Unveiled: the UK & Ireland’s best-rated travel agents
A high street travel agency in Blantyre has been shortlisted as one of the best travel agencies in the British Isles.
Glen Travel has been selected as one of the top five high street agencies in the Scotland region, as part of a power-list of the nation’s best agents by industry bible the Travel Trade Gazette.
More than 500 travel agencies and branches put themselves forward for consideration for TTG’s Top 50 Travel Agencies 2019 – in association with Kuoni – from which a shortlist of 100 finalists across 20 categories has been devised..
On April 25, 2019, the 50 agencies that have ultimately earned a place in the Top 50 list for 2019 will be announced at a glittering ceremony at The Vox Centre in Birmingham.
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.”
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.
Travel Trade Gazette is the UK & Ireland’s leading travel industry magazine, publishing weekly since 1953. TTG’s annual Top 50 Travel Agencies list comprises the best three high street stores from each of 12 regions, the best two nationwide agencies in each of six categories, and the best single agency in each of two special categories for homeworking/call centre-based businesses. The ceremony takes place at the Vox Centre at Resorts World Birmingham on April 25, 2019
