Montreal, June 22, 2016 — Agents know best when it comes to travel, so it should come as no surprise that they voted Transat No. 1 in three categories at the Agents’ Choice Awards this year. Transat won best Tour Operator, best Leisure/Charter Airline for Air Transat and best Overall Supplier for Service and Value.
“We are sincerely touched by the agents’ continued support,” says Denise Heffron, Vice-President, National Sales & Commercial of Transat Tours Canada. “We make every effort to deliver value-added services to our clients, and these wins help to reinforce those efforts and our long-standing collaboration with our travel agent partners.”
In addition to its first-place wins, Transat also came in second in the Responsible Travel category and third in the Travel Insurance and Online Booking Resources (B2B) categories.
It is also worth noting that this is the ninth consecutive year that Air Transat has been named best Leisure/Charter Airline and the third year in a row that Transat has won best Tour Operator.
The 17th annual Agents’ Choice Awards, organized by Canadian Travel Press, Travel Courier and TravelPress.com, gave travel agents across the country the chance to vote for their favourite travel companies in 35 different categories.
