Two Carrickfergus-based travel agents are celebrating a leading industry award.
Andrea Kirkpatrick and Pamela Marshall, who run their own business as part of Travel Counsellors, are celebrating the independent travel company winning Top Homeworking Agency at the Travel Trade Gazette (TTG) Top 50 awards ceremony.
Daniel Pearce, TTG managing director, said: “The Top Homeworking Agency was a very hotly contested category, and it was a pleasure to be able to present the award to such a vibrant, energetic and forward thinking business as Travel Counsellors, in honour of the many hundreds of successful homeworkers that rank alongside it.”
With over 20 years of industry experience under their belt, they began their leisure travel business from their own home offices in 2004 and 2005 respectively. Since then, they have built strong relationships with their loyal customers to create a thriving business that is going from strength to strength.
Andrea said: “We are so proud to have won this award and wanted to thank all our fantastic customers for making this possible. Our business model is based around putting the customer first in everything we do – that’s the beauty of being an independent tour operator as we can offer the customer the holiday that’s right for them every time and create very special, one-off itineraries that you can’t put together yourself on the internet.
“I’m delighted that the unique customer experience we provide has been recognised and hope this inspires people to contact us to find out how we can help them create memories in 2016.”
