The award, in recognition of the sales performance and customer service, was presented to owners Lee and Sarah Hunt at a ceremony held in Chester.

Lee said: “I was not expecting the award having only opened two years ago but it is lovely recognition for the team of all the hard work we do.”

He added: “The greatest benefit of being independent is that we have access to over 200 tour operators and the world’s leading airlines to find the best possible holidays for our customers.”
