IYC Travel Nominated In AFTA Awards

IYC Travel, Classic Holidays’ dedicated member travel agency, has been nominated in several categories for the 2014 AFTA National Travel Industry Awards.

The industry’s premier awards, run by the Australian Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA), recognise and celebrate the highest achievers in the travel business across Australia.

Gold Coast-based IYC Travel and top performing staff have been nominated in three categories for their achievements over the past 12 months:

  • Best Travel Agency Corporate – Single Location
  • Best Travel Consultant – Corporate – Debbie Schofield
  • Best Travel Agency Manager – Corporate – Lorrelle Barnett

IYC Travel Manager Lorrelle Barnett said it was an honour to be recognised alongside the best in the industry.

“This is the first time IYC Travel has ever been nominated in the AFTA National Travel Industry Awards, and it’s a huge thing to be nominated in three categories,” said Ms Barnett.

“The whole IYC team is to be congratulated – this is such an enormous achievement and it really is testament to the close working relationships we have built with wholesalers and airlines to deliver the best travel deals for our Classic Holidays members.

“We could only get to this stage by receiving nominations from the suppliers that we work with, and we’re up against the best in Australia in the travel industry, so we hope to get enough nominations to go through to the next round.”

Voting for nominees closes on 17 April. Finalists are judged by the AFTA Panel before winners are announced at the AFTA Gala Dinner in Sydney on 19 July 2014.
