Alfa Travel has been shortlisted for a prize at the 2010 Globe Travel Awards.
The Chorley-based coach company is nominated for the Best Coach Operator award at the prestigious ceremony, to be held in January next year.
Alfa Travel is one of the UK’s fastest-growing coach holiday companies, providing trips to a host of popular destinations in Britain and Western Europe. It is the first time the company has received a nomination for a Globe Travel award.
Michaela Boardman, marketing manager at Alfa Travel, said: “We at Alfa Travel are especially proud to be nominated for the Globes given that the nominations are made by our valued travel trade partners. This has been a tough trading year for the industry, but together with support from hardworking agents out there on the front line, we've managed to buck the overall trend and see significant increases this year."
The Globe Travel Awards, run in conjunction with Travel Weekly magazine, recognises the very best of the travel industry. It is one of few awards ceremonies where the winners are voted for solely by travel agents.
There are over 40 categories in the Globe Travel Awards, from Best Cruise Company to Best Travel Website.
Martin Couzins, managing editor of Travel Weekly, said: “Winning a Globe award is a crucial badge of trust and confidence for the winning companies. Both travel agents and their customers have spoken, meaning winners of our Globe Travel Awards really can claim to be the best in their fields.”
A voting supplement will be included in the November issue of Travel Weekly, and agents will have until 11thDecember to vote for their favourite shortlisted companies.
The winners will be announced at the Globe Travel Awards, held at Grosvenor House in London, on 19th January 2010.
