Travel Counsellors named the UK's Best Travel Retailer for the second year running

We are over the moon to announce that for the second year running, we’ve been named the UK’s Best Travel Retailer at the British Travel Awards.

This recognises Travel Counsellors as the best overall travel company in the UK and is especially meaningful to us as it is voted for by our customers.

Travel Counsellors strive to provide exceptional levels of personal service, so we are grateful that customers take the time to show their appreciation, by voting for us in national awards, and by consistently rating us 5* on Trustpilot.

“In this current pandemic - and all the travel restrictions, confusing guidance and ever-changing requirements that came with it - Tanuja's advice was invaluable. Her experience of the travel industry and eagle eyes on the travel updates meant she was able to be the decisive beacon in booking our trip. She took away the headache of travel admin, even down to sending through a detailed timeline of what we need to do before travelling. On top of that, Tanuja’s advice was really tailored to not only our budget but also what we value most from a holiday. Thanks so much, now we can't wait to get to the Maldives!”

“Our Caribbean cruise has been cancelled and rebooked 3 times this year, with complete changes to departure points and travel itineraries. On each occasion Lucy has tirelessly worked to sort everything out for us and re arrange everything within budget and requirements. We truly feel that we can rely on Lucy to sort us out and keep out best interests at heart.”

The BTA Award win is the cherry on top of a successful year for Travel Counsellors, despite the challenges posed by coronavirus.

We won our second Queen’s Award for International Trade, the third Queen's Award in our trophy cabinet.

MoneySavingExpert named Travel Counsellors the ‘Best Travel Company for Refunds’ three times, and we jumped to 48th place in The Sunday Times PwC Top Track 250 league table.

Travel Counsellors won the Lenny Award for ‘Best Learning Culture’, recognising our franchisees commitment to their own personal development throughout lockdown by embracing the training festivals that took place throughout 2020.

We’ve once again been shortlisted in the 2021 TTG Top 50 travel agencies in the ‘Top Homeworking’ and ‘Top Business Travel’ categories and will find out if we win in March 2021.

Our reasons to celebrate in 2020 are the result of 26 years of putting poeple at the heart of everything we do.
