Two of Lisburn-based Oasis Travel’s branches have been named among the UK’s best in this year’s Travel Trade Gazette ‘Top 50’ list.

The independent travel agency’s Lisburn branch was itself declared runner-up in the category of Best Travel Agency in Northern Ireland, while the top spot went to Oasis’s Holywood office.

The list was announced at a recent ceremony in Birmingham after a judging process led by industry publication the Travel Trade Gazette, which saw agents rated by tour operators and other suppliers, and assessed by travel trade journalists.

Oasis Travel Managing Director Sandra Corkin said she was delighted at the accolades, which she attributed to a combination of travel expertise and a genuine commitment to personal service.

“It’s fantastic to see not one but two Oasis branches honoured by travel professionals and we are thrilled at the recognition,” she said. “ Massive congratulations go to the managers and staff at both branches – and keep up the good work - and of course a big thank-you to all our wonderful customers at the heart of our business.”

Sandra said the teams in Holywood -led by Manager Lisa Sprake - and Lisburn - under the direction of Manager Briege McElroy, were justifiably proud.

TTG editor Pippa Jacks offered ‘huge congratulations’ to every agency that earned a place on the list.
