An independent Cumbrian travel agency is celebrating after two of its stores have been shortlisted for a prestigious industry award.
Cumbria Travel’s Whitehaven and Workington stores are in the running for the title of The Top Agency in the North West of England in awards organised by industry bible Travel Trade Gazette.
Tricia Rickerby, co-director of Cumbria Travel, said: “We are so proud to have both of our shops in Whitehaven and Dunmail Park, Workington in the final five.
“This is an amazing achievement for all at Cumbria Travel. After such a hard year this is a huge boost to our amazing teams.”
Cumbria Travel’s Whitehaven store won Top Travel Agency in the North West 2018 and the Dunmail Park branch, was runner-up in 2019 and 2020.
Winners will be announced in March.
The agency, which also has a store in Carlisle, last week won County Brides Top Travel Agent in the North West of England.
This award is voted for by the clients.
Co-director Leanne Miller added: “We were delighted to learn of our nomination for County Brides Top Travel Agent North West several months ago.
“This award is really special to us not just because it’s the first time we have been nominated and won but because it is entirely won on customer nominations.
“We have helped many Cumbrian couples say their “I dos ” over the years and lost count of the hen/stag parties we have arranged so to win this accolade for our team is amazing we are truly humbled and immensely grateful to all our customers.”
