The travel company is a finalist for three national awards.

The volunteering efforts of a local travel company have earned it a place as a finalist in a national travel awards.

Premier Travel has been shortlisted for three accolades in the prestigious Travel Weekly Agent Achievement Awards – an annual event which recognises the best travel agencies in the UK.

The East Anglian based firm is a finalist in the Promotion of the Year category after giving away 80 Prizes in 80 Days to customers in Newmarket last summer, and volunteering more than 80 hours to charities and worthwhile causes in November and December.

Premier Travel is also shortlisted for Large Travel Agency of the Year in the Central and London and South East categories.

The company will go up against several other travel agencies from across the UK for all three awards at a ceremony in London in July.

Elaine Carr, manager of Premier Travel in Newmarket, said: “These awards are the most prestigious in the travel trade and every travel agency wants to be shortlisted. We are incredibly proud that our volunteering efforts in the local community for our 80th birthday last year have been recognised.”
