Oasis Travel is the Best High Street Agency of its size anywhere in the United Kingdom!
The accolade of Best High Street Agency (small business category) was announced this week at the prestigious Travel Agent Achievement Awards in London (7 July 2015). It’s a significant victory for a Northern Ireland business, and the achievement is all the sweeter because the winner of the hotly-contested category is selected by industry peers.
The award was made at a gala occasion in the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel in central London and Oasis Travel collected the trophy in front of an 800-strong audience of ‘the Great and the Good’ from the UK’s travel sector.
Sandra, whose company last year celebrated thirty successful years, has been getting plenty of practice at Awards acceptance speeches, for this latest honour is adding to a packed trophy cabinet at Oasis Travel’s Lisburn headquarters.
As well as being named Best High Street Agency, at the same ceremony Oasis Travel also won the Best Regional Small Agency Award for an outstanding four years in succession.
In recent months its accolades have included:
Sandra is understandably delighted at the run of recognition. She says, “No matter how often we are called to the podium, it is always thrilling to win an award. This latest recognition is particularly welcome as it is judged by colleagues across the travel industry. I know they have watched with interest our growth to our current position as one of Northern Ireland’s largest and best known independent travel agencies, and it is encouraging to see that they respect not only our development but also our success. Their endorsement is well worth having!
“Receiving recognition is always extremely motivating and it makes all the long hours and hard work that goes on behind the scenes worthwhile. Oasis Travel is extremely fortunate in having a superbly enthusiastic and highly knowledgeable staff at our travel agencies in Lisburn, Belfast (Lisburn Road and Howard Street), Holywood and Bangor and the awards we have collected are recognition of their skills and commitment and a sign of even better things to come in future for Oasis Travel.”
