Press Release: Top 50 Travel Agents Awards 2019

Unveiled: the UK & Ireland’s best-rated travel agents

A high street travel agency in Bath has been shortlisted as one of the best travel agencies in the British Isles.

C The World has been selected as one of the top five high street agencies in the South West region, as part of a power-list of the nation’s best agents by industry bible the Travel Trade Gazette.

More than 500 travel agencies and branches put themselves forward for consideration for TTG’s Top 50 Travel Agencies 2019 – in association with Kuoni - from which a shortlist of 100 finalists across 20 categories has been devised.

On April 25, 2019, the 50 agencies that have ultimately earned a place in the Top 50 list for 2019 will be announced at a glittering ceremony at The Vox Centre in Birmingham.

TTG Media group editor Pippa Jacks said: “Now in its fourth year, our Top 50 Travel Agencies initiative takes us the length and breadth of the country to uncover stories of brilliant agents going the extra mile for their customers, giving great value, and serving their communities.

“With extremely stiff competition once again this year, any high street agency that has made it onto the shortlist should be extremely proud.”

Carolyn Park, managing director at C The World said: “We are delighted that the hard work of the Bath team has been noted on a National level. For a shop that has only been open 2 years, this is testament to the strength of the team and their excellent customer service"

The shortlisting stage was undertaken by a panel of 50 travel suppliers including airlines, tour operators, cruise lines and car hire providers, who rated hopeful agencies according to their business performance, customer service, expertise, and innovation. In the next stage of judging, a TTG journalist will visit each shortlisted agency to carry out an assessment.
