Blue Chip Vacations has been named as winner of a Silver award in South West Tourism's prestigious South West Tourism Excellence Awards. Designed to celebrate 'the best in the South West' the Awards promote and reward the very best in the tourism industry.
Nominated in the category of 'Tourism Website of the Year', http://www.bluechipvacations.com has been awarded Silver after an exhaustive selection and judging process. The website was created by Organic Development of Exeter and was commended for it's live availability and ease of use. The site also features almost 5000 photographs, property location maps and online booking.
Managing Director, Liam Gavin comments, "This is terrific news. Much of the last year has been spent developing and improving our website to ensure it is both user friendly and secure. Customers can now book online and get prices for short breaks or full holidays within seconds. The internet has transformed how companies do business and it is vital that we stay at the forefront of the industry for the sake of our customers and our property owners."
"I would have loved us to have won Gold this year but Silver is a terrific achievement and we'll certainly be going for gold in 2009."
Blue Chip Vacations represents over 450 handpicked 4 & 5 star properties across the West Country. Each property has been chosen for its stunning location, amazing coastal or rural views or hi-spec interior. Properties are reviewed each year to ensure they meet the high standard set not only by Blue Chip Vacations, but also by Quality in Tourism. By letting a property through an agency such as by Blue Chip Vacations, owners can benefit from favourable CGT and inheritance tax treatment, including the new 'entrepreneurs relief' announced last November.
The company recently stepped in to help holidaymakers affected by the collapse of Brixham Holiday Homes by offering help to holidaymakers whose plans had been disrupted, knocking 20% off the cost of week long stays for anyone looking to replace holidays they had lined up.
