Cambridgeshire travel firm Premier Travel has been honoured with another top industry award for its expertise and experience in cruise holidays.

The award-winning company, which has branches in Huntingdon, St Ives and St Neots, has been crowned winner of the Cruise Agent of the Year Award for Large Agencies by The Travel Network Group.

Paul Waters, director of Premier Travel, said: "We're honoured to be rounding off our 80th birthday year as we started it - by receiving an award. Winning Cruise Agent of the Year is fantastic recognition for our branches' efforts in selling and promoting cruises to the public.

"All of our travel consultants place high emphasis on customer service and continually work to improve their knowledge and expertise on all areas, including cruise holidays. Without their commitment, we wouldn't win awards such as these."

Staff were presented with the award following a gala dinner at a cruise conference for travel agents across the UK, held in Birmingham.

Earlier this year, the firm was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award, also by The Travel Network Group, and in July, chairman Renford Sargent received an Outstanding Contribution to the Industry Award at the Travel Weekly Agent Achievement Awards.

Run by The Travel Network Group - the largest independent travel network in Europe which champions the independent travel market - the awards recognise those in the travel trade that offer exceptional customer service and knowledge to customers looking to book a cruise.
