County firm shortlisted for top travel agency in the South West

Wotton Travel, a wholly owned Renishaw company, has been shortlisted in the South West category of the Travel Trade Gazette's TTG Top 50 Travel Agencies of 2020.

The award ceremony, which celebrates excellence in the UK, Ireland and Channel Islands, will take place on 30th April at The Vox in Birmingham

The agency, based in Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire, was established in 1986 and has built a team of leading consultants and experts. Initially founded to manage Renishaw's business travel, the company now boasts over 300 years of experience across its team of 11 travel specialists.

Wendy Walker, director of Wotton Travel, said: "At a time when travel management has become a commodity, Wotton Travel prides itself on giving its customers a personal experience. We reflect this in the variety of services we offer and our responsive customer service.

"We work hard to cater for everyone, whether it's families with children, other holidaymakers or business executives. Staying up-to-date with the changing landscape of technology and social media in the travel industry gives us an extra edge.

"Our team is made up of a mix of experienced and young agents. TTG has already acknowledged the great talent Wotton Travel is fostering in its younger agents, so it's very rewarding to see the company shortlisted this year."

The TTG Travel Awards highlight the highest-achieving and most promising workers in the travel industry. Wotton Travel will be competing with four other South West businesses, including one from Guernsey, to determine who will be named top travel agency in the region.
