Top trophy for Peakes Travel elite …
Peakes Travel Elite has been named as Central & East England’s Top Travel Agency in a new power-list of the UK & Ireland’s best agents

The agency which is based in a historic building in Mardol, Shrewsbury, beat off competition from many other high street agents in the region to take the trophy.

The Top 50 Travel Agencies list was revealed in a glittering ceremony in Birmingham after an extensive judging process, which saw agents rated by tour operators and suppliers, and assessed by travel trade journalists.

Event organiser Pippa Jacks said: “Our search for the nation’s best travel agents has taken us the length and breadth of the country, where we’ve uncovered countless stories of brilliant agents going that extra mile for their customers, giving great value and serving their communities.

“We had our work cut out to decide the winners from a huge list of 500 contenders, and the 80 stores and businesses that made it to the shortlist stage should be extremely proud. Huge congratulations go to every agency that earned a place on our prestigious list.”

Claire Moore, of Peakes Travel Elite, commented: “It was amazing to be in the top 5, let alone win!  So we are proud to be the number one agent in Central and East of England and the award is true testament to the great team we have. Our customers can be assured they are in the hands of people who take immense pride in the quality of service provided, and who are passionate about what they do”

Frances Peake, added: “We have always been known for our high-end holidays, but have concentrated on widening our reach over the past few years, and are now pleased to have helped more customers looking for holidays of all styles and budget.

“It gives a warm feeling to know we are doing things right and an added bonus is when we get new people coming to us, having been recommended by satisfied existing customers.

“With everything going on in the world at the moment, people seem to be coming back to the high street agent, because they want security and because they want well informed knowledge”
