Independent travel agents, Eagle Travel are flying high after receiving nominations for three national industry awards.

The Goldington Road-based business is one of just five travel agencies in the whole of the UK to be shortlisted for Luxury Travel Agency of the Year in this year’s prestigious Aspire Travel Awards.

And it is one of just three agencies nominated for the Extra Mile Award, in recognition of their commitment to customer care and attention to detail.

The Aspire Travel Awards seek out those who innovate and deliver incredible customer service and the winners will be decided by a select panel of industry experts.

Sue Alexander, managing director of Eagle Travel said, “I am absolutely thrilled that we are finalists in two categories.

“Our team work so hard to provide the best service that is above and beyond our clients expectations. As a small and truly independent local business it is a huge honour for us to be recognised.”

The winners will be announced on 9 September.

In addition, Eagle Travel’s Marketing Executive, Liz Sullivan (pictured) is again a finalist in this year’s Cruise Stars Awards, vying to retain the title of Travel Agent Marketing Star.  The winner will be announced in November.

We wish them all the best of luck.
