ACE Travel is one of Brentwood’s best established independent businesses. Operating since 1992, ACE Travel is a truly independent company, owner managed by Max and Christine Gunthardt (founding Directors) and Sarah Wilson. ACE manages the corporate travel requirements for clients in both Essex and London through hands on personal delivery, backed up by the latest innovative technology in the industry.
ACE Travel is a member of the Advantage Travel Partnership, which is the UK’S largest independent travel agent consortium. ACE Travel was honoured at a recent travel industry awards ceremony, The Advantage Big Celebration Lunch, picking up the award for Business Travel Agent of the year 2017.
In its second year, Advantage hosted The Big Celebration Lunch, celebrating members and their success. The event was attended by 240 delegates from across the travel industry, celebrating the achievements of travel agents and business partners. Overall 18 awards were presented to members and business partners. Sarah Wilson, Director attended the fantastic event at the Grange City Hotel in London on 06th October, collecting one of 18 awards from celebrity host Mark Durden-Smith.
ACE Travel manages the corporate travel requirements for clients both in London and Essex. Despite the ease in which Travel can be booked via all sorts of modern booking engines, there is still room for a personal and human approach. The management of travel services and indeed travellers – particularly with today focus being on safety is still required by SME’S which are ACE’S niche clientele. ACE currently employs 19 locally based people and is very proud of their experienced team.
Sarah Wilson, Director says: “We are thrilled to have won this award and are delighted that our commitment to providing quality corporate travel services has been recognised. We would like to thank all panel members that voted for us and congratulate our team for their continued dedication and achievement in wining this award”
Julia Lo Bue, Managing Director, Advantage Travel Partnership added
“As a business, we are extremely proud of the quality of our members and the strength of the relationships we have with our business partners. We also think that it is important to recognise and celebrate success, and in a big way.
“This is a fantastic vote of confidence in the independent travel industry and we would like to congratulate ACE Travel for their outstanding performance this year.”
