Local Travel Agent Miles Morgan travel were crowned the best in the whole of the UK at a glitzy awards ceremony in London last week. The agent with a shop in Malmesbury had its most successful night ever, with a total of three awards at the premier travel award night of the year. Managing Director Miles Morgan received an “Outstanding Contribution to the Travel Industry” award in recognition of not only the success of Miles Morgan Travel, but also his work for the industry as a whole – including being a board member of ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents). The company then won the Best Travel Agent for the South West and Wales for an unprecedented 3rd year before their major accolade, Best Travel Agent in the UK. MD Miles Morgan said “I was totally overwhelmed, we beat TUI, Thomas Cook, Trailfinders, Flight Centre, the list goes on. These companies are much more established than us and certainly have a lot more shops.” Morgan put the success down to his staff: “I am so proud of the staff at Miles Morgan Travel, their knowledge is exceptional but their genuine interest in looking after our customers and their holidays is what sets us apart from the others.” Local manager Meg Gardiner said “When I first heard I was so shocked, we work very hard for our customers but for that to be recognised as being the best in the UK is nothing short of incredible, we are so proud” Meg continued – “I would like to thank all our customers in Malmesbury for their support. We love looking after you and thanks to your loyalty and bookings we have come out the Best of the Best. It’s wonderful.” Miles Morgan Travel was established in 2006 and has 15 shops around the West Country and South Wales. The company has recorded increased sales for all 12 years and has seen customers return to booking on the High Street after so many people suffered internet booking horror stories. “The High Street is retuning to being the fashionable and clever place for people to book” said Mr Morgan “People have realised it can be cheaper to book with a travel expert as they know where to look for the best prices and value, as well as their money being secure.” Left to right – Lucy Huxley, Travel Weekly.
