Hanoi (VNA)
– Vietravel has been recognised as ‘Vietnam’s Best Travel Agency’ at the TTG Travel Awards Ceremony in Bangkok, Thailand.

The award marks the fifth time the company has received the honour.

The annual TTG Travel Awards, regarded as the Asia-Pacific’s most prestigious travel industry awards, honours stellar organisations and individuals in four categories: Travel Supplier, Travel Agency, Outstanding Achievement and Travel Hall of Fame.

At the 28th awards ceremony, Vietravel took home its title after receiving the highest number of votes from travel consultants, tour operators and destination management companies.      

The annual search for Asia Pacific’s most outstanding travel organisations, spanning two months from May to July, calls upon industry professionals to name travel suppliers in the region who have risen above the competition and surpassed expectations.

For Travel Supplier Awards, only votes cast by travel consultants, tour operators and destination management companies count towards the final result. For Travel Agency Awards, only votes cast by hoteliers, airline staff, car rental companies, cruise operators, national tourism organisations, GDS companies and all other travel professionals count towards the final result.

During the first nine months of this year, Vietravel offered tours to 550,000 guests, a 125 percent increase compared with the same time last year. The company reached the significant figure thanks to its diversified tour products and service.

Vietravel is the company offering the sole transportation service for the Asia Beach Games 5 held in Da Nang last September.

At present, Vietravel has more than 40 offices and branches nationwide and in some foreign countries including Cambodia, Thailand and the US. The company plans to continue opening representative offices in other countries, aiming to be the first multi-national tourist company of Vietnam by 2020.-VNA
