The Midcounties Co-op Travel is celebrating after being crowned the “Most loved travel agents” in Walsall.
Recognised for exceptional levels of customer service, the four branches based in Aldridge, Brownhills, Bloxwich and Walsall town centre, received the award after customers voted for them in The Best of Walsall Awards which recognises outstanding local businesses.
The Aldridge and Bloxwich Travel team accepted the honour at an awards ceremony in the Mayor’s parlour and received the honour from the Mayor of Walsall, Councillor Garry Perry.
Natalie Turner Head of Branches said: “It’s great to have our efforts recognised with this award as we pride ourselves on giving the best possible customer care.
“Holidays give people something to look forward to and are an important part of our leisure time. Our customers really appreciate the knowledge and guidance we give them. We always make sure we go that extra mile.”
Midcounties Co-op Travel is a locally owned, independent travel agency and an established, ATOL and ABTA bonded business.
