The Baldwins Travel Group is in celebratory mood after being voted the
‘Travel Agent of the Year for London and South East for the 4th year running.
The Baldwins Travel Group - which has stores in Maidstone, Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge, Uckfield & Sevenoaks Travel - walked away with the Top Prize at the recent Agent Achievement Awards in London. In addition, the company also won the prestigious National Cruise Agent of the Year 2011 for the whole of the UK.
No doubt awarded for the tremendous cruise knowledge the staff have following ship visits and online training organised through ACE and the various cruise companies - some having reached the high ACE Ambassador standard.
The prestigious Agent Achievement Awards are recognised as the travel industry's highest accolade, recognising excellence and achievement in the UK's travel agency community. Handed out annually, they are based on nominations and votes from key players in the UK's holiday industry.
Baldwins Travel’s Business Development director Nick Marks said Baldwins Travel Agency’s success at this year's awards could be put down to the hard work of its 45 experienced and knowledgeable members of staff.
"You could say we're on top of the world - in more ways than one! Winning the awards is a spectacular achievement and being recognised by our peers in the travel industry is a real honour," he said. He continued “We are so proud of our staff – all of whom have contributed with their knowledge, expertise and travel experiences. They are simply outstanding! Customers who use our business are served by the best in the business.”
Baldwins Travel is no stranger to awards success, having won the London & South East prize five times before (in 1997, 2004 and 2008, 2009 &2010) and being runner-up on no less than seven other occasions.
