Leeds-based travel boutique owner, Tanya Haigh has received a major travel industry award and a further award shortlisting, just weeks after unveiling her first high street store.
After experiencing considerable success with her office based travel business, Tanya took the decision to open her first physical store, The Luxury Travel Lounge, in February this year.
The Luxury Travel Lounge has already seen high demand and was shortlisted in this year’s Agent Achievement Awards in the Aspire Agent of the Year category.
Now the finalists will attend an awards ceremony in London on 13 July 2016 to find the most dedicated travel agent.
This nomination follows another recent award with Insight Vacations, where The Luxury Travel Lounge was named as Luxury Gold Agent for the North of England andTanya was granted £1,500 to spend on the company’s marketing budget and a Luxury Gold Tour of France and Guernsey.
Tanya Haigh said: “We are thrilled to have been recognised for our hard work and dedication over the last few weeks.
“The award win and shortlisting is a real testament to the commitment of the team and we look forward to further successes in the future.”
The Luxury Travel Lounge, based in Horsforth, comprises well known travel agency JNT Destinations and an exclusive, members only club, World Class Escapes.
The popular travel boutique caters to a wide range of clientele, offering bespoke travel packages from corporate travel and premium holidays to honeymoons, city breaks, cruises, tours and gap year experiences.
Tanya prides herself on operating a travel business based primarily on personal experiences rather than a brochure.
