“In 2021, our staff ensured that all of our customers either booked their holidays or received refunds as soon as possible. Once holidays were restored, we offered each of our customers assistance with passenger locator forms and booking tests.
“When customers picked up their tickets, we made sure they had everything they needed to make their trip as easy as possible. We gained a lot of new customers by offering this service because no other travel agency was doing it at the time.
Feefo’s Director of Customer Success, Steph Heasman, said, “This year has been like no other and it’s only right that we recognize companies that have excelled despite enormous challenges. Winning a Trusted Service Award in this context demonstrates incredible performance and is a real sign of pride for any company.
