Global Holidays has joined a national campaign designed to help consumers by encouraging them to use trusted agencies to book their holidays.
The Trust in Travel Agents campaign, which has been backed by travel guru Simon Calder, aims to ensure customers get good value quality holidays and are looked after if anything goes wrong.
The importance of the campaign was highlighted in a recent Simon Calder radio show when listeners were told how booking with a trusted agent would give them extra security.
It has also been given support by celebrities including former England captain Alan Shearer and Premiership star Gianfranco Zola, who have praised the service they get from agents.
The campaign is promoted nationwide by Travel Trade Gazette (TTG), which provides agents who sign up with a Trust in Travel Agents Charter in which they commit to the values of service, protection, value and community.
TTG editor Daniel Pearce said the campaign highlighted how holidaymakers booking through an agent got help when they needed it, whether it was finding alternative flights during British Airways cabin crew strikes or being kept informed about fast moving events, such as the troubles in Egypt.
He said: “Every agent who signs this charter has committed to giving great service and value to their local customers as well as giving something back to their local community.”
Global Holidays has for some time campaigned for recognition for good travel agents as they provide a fantastic service and most provide ATOL financial protection for their customers.
Global Holidays sells high quality holidays and attempts to find its customers the best possible price for long haul holidays to luxury destinations such as The Maldives and Australia as well as USA multi centre holidays together with all the traditional holiday destinations like Spain, Portugal, Turkey and holidays to Greece and the Greek Islands.
