A Fantastic Accolade


Alan Cross, Head of Trade at LS, said, “We are enormously grateful to receive this fantastic accolade, and we cannot thank our friends at TTG and WTM enough, as well as the judges and of course our independent travel agency partners. Since the onset of the pandemic, our team has been working around the clock to support agents and protect their bookings and commission, and this award recognizes that hard work and dedication.”

He further continued, “we know what a difficult time this has been for independent travel agents, and our message to them is that we are with you every step of the way and will continue supporting you through the pandemic and beyond.”
