‘Outstanding’ Newell’s

Best Performing Agent winner, Newell's Travel, with Willie Thorne

South west travel agency Newell’s TRAVEL has been named Outstanding Agency of the Year by the Global Travel Group.

The independent agency, which has eight branches throughout Cornwall and Devon, received the accolade at the organisation’s national conference in Leicester last week (March 8).

Newell’s TRAVEL was awarded the title in recognition of outstanding sales, customer service, professionalism and specialist knowledge of staff.

Managing partner Roger Hawke said: “This title is a credit to our staff, who work very hard in making sure our customers are looked after and get the best deal they can.”

Newell’s TRAVEL is Devon and Cornwall’s largest independent travel agency group, with 60 staff over the eight branches.

The company has been operating for nearly 50 years after the first branch was established in Falmouth in 1962.

Newell’s has branches in Falmouth, Truro, Hayle, Redruth, Saltash, Liskeard in Cornwall plus Kingsbridge and Tavistock in Devon.
