The Channel Islands Co-operative Society’s Travelmaker in Jersey has been named one of the best travel agencies in the UK and Ireland.
Travelmaker is one of three in the South West region selected as part of a power-list of the nation’s best agents by the industry bible, Travel Trade Gazette.
The TTG Top 50 Travel Agencies list was revealed in a glittering ceremony in Birmingham after an extensive judging process, which saw agents rated by tour operators and other suppliers, and then assessed by travel trade journalists.
‘We are absolutely thrilled to be recognised for a second year running as one of the top 50 travel agencies in the UK and Ireland, it’s a fantastic achievement. It’s a huge honour to be recognised in this way by what is considered to be the number one travel magazine,’ said Travelmaker’s head of travel, Carl Winn.
‘I’m extremely proud of my colleagues for their hard work and dedication; such recognition on a national level is fantastic for the Society and for the Channel Islands.’
TTG group editor Pippa Jacks said: ‘Now in its second year, our Top 50 Travel Agencies initiative has seen us scour the UK and Ireland to uncover its most dedicated and dynamic travel agency businesses.
‘It's been truly inspiring to hear how these agencies go above and beyond on a daily basis, to deliver extraordinary service and incredible value to their customers, and to support their local communities. Our winners demonstrate that travel retailing in 2016 is a vibrant and successful business sector, and that – particularly on the high street – agents continue to prove their worth by delivering phenomenal customer service.’
