The award was presented at the Travel Weekly Globe Awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London earlier this week (17 January, 2011). TV personality Jimmy Carr presented the awards, with entertainment provided by the X Factor’s Stacey Solomon and Danyl Johnson.
The winners of the awards are voted for by travel agents, who chose Holiday Extras as the leader in the categories ‘Best add-ons Provider’ and ‘Best Insurance Provider’ 2011.
Andrea Clayton, Head of partnerships at Holiday Extras said, “We are thrilled to have won the Best Travel insurance provider, as voted by the travel trade, for the third year running and also the best add-ons for the eighth year.”
This latest award follows a run of success for Holiday Extras who were shortlisted for the National Business Awards’ Blackberry Award for Customer Focus in 2010, and won Best Customer Service and Commitment in the Kent Excellence in Business Awards (KEIBA), in 2010.
