Travel Counsellors has been voted as the best travel company in the Netherlands at the annual Dutch Travel Awards.

The awards attracted votes from 500,000 consumers, with the company receiving 9.2 out of 10, far outpacing other companies in the category.

This comes as Travel Counsellors’ operation in Holland continues to go expand, with 138 agents now running their own businesses from home across the country and sales already up by 37% compared to last year.

Managing director Steve Byrne said: “We are delighted to have received this accolade, especially as it was voted for by customers across the country.

“People value the highly personal service that our agents provide. Our business model centres around supporting our Travel Counsellors in all areas of their business so that they can focus solely on caring for their customers, and this is what enables them to stand out against competition and give clients the service they deserve.”

Travel Counsellors now has more than 1,300 agents in the UK, Ireland, Holland, South Africa, Australia, Canada and Dubai.
