Local travel agent picks up coveted national award
Local Stamford travel agency, More Travel, has picked up one of the UK travel industry’s most coveted awards at the Travel Weekly ASPIRE Awards in central London.
More Travel was announced as the winner of – ‘Independent Agency of the Year’ – at a glittering dinner at the St Pancras Renaissance in London on Monday 9 September 2019, with 300 of the industry’s most senior travel executives in attendance.
The ASPIRE Awards are part of Travel Weekly, one of the UK’s leading travel magazines and the event is dedicated to celebrating the best brands, representatives and agents in the high-end travel sector.
Aspire editor Hollie-Rae Brader said: “The luxury travel sector continues to grow with more businesses launching high-end products or focusing on affluent travellers. The ‘Independent Agent of the Year,’ was open to agents who have a presence on the high street and who can clearly show their luxury travel sales, how much of their business is focused on luxury and demonstrate their intentions to grow this part of their business, highlighting future growth plans, details of their client base and their routes to new clientele.”
On presenting the award to More Travel, Ms Brader added: “Honest and ambitious with a thriving business, that’s how one of our judges described the winner of this year’s independent agency of the year. The agency’s revenues have grown in double digits since the business was started eight years ago, but what our judges liked best was how this business creatively markets to different pockets of customers within the luxury sector. Judges also liked the agency’s dedication to high-end travel, with the agency’s entry revealing they would happily turn away business if it isn’t right for their company
