2012-11-13 — / — Surrey operator picks up ‘Best Tour Operator to Italy’ at BTAs Surrey-based tour operator Newmarket Holidays was “absolutely delighted” after following up 2011’s ‘Best Coach Operator’ win by picking up the ‘Best Tour Operator to Italy’ accolade at this week’s British Travel Awards in London.

Speaking immediately after the award of the ‘Best Tour Operator to Italy’ title, Newmarket’s Andy Jones, Air Product Director who has overseen the company’s holiday programme throughout the Mediterranean for the past 15 years, said he was delighted that the work of the team at Newmarket and especially ‘on the ground’ in Italy had been rewarded in such a way. “Our staff and agents in Italy can feel justly proud of this achievement, which is well deserved”, said Mr Jones. “It is especially gratifying to know that this award was voted for by the travelling public, who have shown their support and appreciation for our holidays over many years.”

The BTA award comes as Newmarket – whose Italian range includes resort-based stays and escorted tours throughout the Italian peninsular – looks towards yet more celebrations marking the company’s 30th Anniversary in 2013. Newmarket employs nearly 200 staff at its Worcester Park HQ, and in addition to the Italian programme, operates a huge range of other holidays, including regional airport departures and cruises, to a vast selection of destinations across the globe.
