The Irish travel market is leading up to not 1 but 2 major travel awards at the moment. The Irish Travel Trade News Awards (ITTN) which is made up of a panel of judges and the Independent.ie Reader Travel Awards where you get the power to vote!
REGIONAL TRAVEL AGENCY OF THE YEAR WINNERS!
Leading up to their awards ceremony which takes place in November the ITTN have announced their 4 regional travel agency of the year awards:
In Leinster Cassidy Travel took the crown this year narrowly pipping E-Travel, Marble City Travel and Platinum Travel to the post.
In Munster Lee Travel deservedly took the award, in particular due to the way they stepped in to handle all the customers affected by the sad sudden closure of Heffernan Travel. They may have been set to win anyway but for this move alone we're delighted to see them emerge victorious!
In Connaught we were pleased to see Caroline and the team in Fahy Travel add to their ever growing list of awards winning the regional award ahead of Fly Away Travel, Grogan Travel & Keller Travel
Finally in Ulster the fantastic Atlantic Travel, who of course won a competition for a Royal Caribbean shop makeover in the last couple of years got the nod for the region. This is a particularly good year for Atlantic with their manager Emma McHugh receiving a nomination for manager of the year in the recent TTG awards covering the UK and Ireland!
At the awards in November these 4 will battle it out for the overall agency of the year!
The Cruise Room Ireland think choosing any of these award winners to book your next cruise with will see you well looked after!
