At GetAway Travel, we pride ourselves on great professional service to our customers. Travel industry surveys continue to relate that travelers that work with travel agents have more fulfilling vacations than those that do not. We certainly believe it is true, and obviously so do our clients. Our clients expect to be treated like friends and family. They are confident in our abilities. They do not expect to be “sold” on travel as we already know they want an amazing vacation, what they want is our opinions, our help and our support. One of the ways we support them is by maintaining professional agency affiliations. The affiliation that we are always most excited about is with MAST Travel Network – and unless you are in the industry, you likely have never heard of them. We’ve been MAST members for many years now, and in fact Sue currently is serving a term on the board of directors. MAST helps keep us up to date on the travel industry and products, but more importantly puts us face to face with suppliers.
This week was the 12th annual MAST awards night and GetAway Travel came home with 2 awards which bring us great pride. The first award is for “Best Travel Show”, for our “Afternoon in Italy” event last February. The second award is the “Directors Achievement Award”, recognizing one of MAST’s smaller agencies for outstanding sales and support with highest percentage increases from one year to the next. This was a new category and we are truly blessed with being the first agency to ever receive this award.
You should expect great things from your travel agency, and we hope that for you that the travel agency you rely on first and foremost for amazing vacations is us.
