Our Bangor and Lisburn Road branches of Oasis Travel have been named as two of the best travel agencies in the UK & Ireland in the Travel Trade Gazette (TTG) Top 50 list of travel agencies.
Oasis Travel’s Bangor shop has been awarded the title of Top Travel Agency in Northern Ireland as part of a power-list of the best agents by TTG, the influential industry publication. The Oasis Travel Lisburn Road branch was also commended in making the TTG Top 50 list of travel agencies, receiving the second runner-up accolade in the same category.
We found out when the Top 50 list was revealed in a dazzling ceremony in Birmingham earlier this month (March) after an extensive judging process, which saw agents rated by tour operators and other suppliers, and then assessed by travel trade journalists.
Lynn Jamison, Manager of Oasis Travel Bangor, said; “It feels amazing to receive this recognition from our industry peers.
“We’re delighted to have clinched the Best Travel Agency in Northern Ireland title after only one year of relocating and refurbishing our Bangor office. It is now the most contemporary of our branch network and lends a vibrant new home for our dynamic team, offering a relaxing atmosphere as soon as you walk through the door. I can only assume that it is down to that ambience combined with our team’s travel expertise and a genuine commitment to personal service that helped us stand out. The office was even designed with a trophy cabinet for just such an award!
“It is, of course, fantastic to also see our colleagues in our Lisburn Road office recognised by being placed second runners up. Well done Team Oasis.”
TTG group editor Pippa Jacks said: “Our Top 50 Travel Agencies initiative has seen us scour the UK and Ireland to uncover its most dedicated and dynamic travel agency businesses.
“It's been truly inspiring to hear how these agencies go above and beyond on a daily basis, to deliver extraordinary service and incredible value to their customers, and to support their local communities. Our winners demonstrate that travel retailing is a vibrant and successful business sector, and that – particularly on the high street – agents continue to prove their worth by delivering phenomenal customer service.”
