Local travel firm Holiday Extras added three more awards to its 2012 haul recently, at the British Travel Awards and the Scottish Passenger Agents’ Association (SPAA) Travel Awards.
Both ceremonies took place on Thursday 1 November, with the travel add-ons specialist picking up the SPAA award for Best Ground / Ancillary Services Provider for the second year running; and the silver for Best Airport Parking Company along with bronze for Best Travel Insurance Provider at the British Travel Awards.
The SPAA event, celebrating its 20th anniversary, was held at the Thistle Hotel in Glasgow with more than 400 travel industry guests. The British Travel Awards hosted its glittering annual gala awards dinner at London’s Battersea Evolution for around a thousand people.
British Travel Awards’ chief executive, Lorraine Barnes Burton, said: “Thisyear more than one million votes were cast by consumers to determine the
winners of the coveted British Travel Awards. The Awards were created to reward travel companies, with the winning accolade being the benchmark for excellence when it comes to finding out who really is the best in the business of travel for the UK consumer. Holiday Extras is to be congratulated on their achievement.”
Lindsay Garvey-Jones, Senior Partnerships Development Manager at Holiday Extras, attended the SPAA awards and said: “We are totally thrilled to have walked away with these prestigious awards. To be recognised by consumers and the travel industry means a lot to the whole team.”
Glamorous Garvey-Jones is no stranger to the red carpet, and was voted winner of the Chic Style Award at the Travel Trade Gazette (TTG) Awards ceremony in October.
