PASSION FOR CRUISES WINS THE TTG AWARD FOR TOP TRAVEL AGENCY IN WALES FOR THE THIRD TIME!

We are delighted to advise that on March 24 Passion For Cruises / Cartwright Travel won this prestigious award for 2022.

We are extremely proud to be the only agency in Wales to have won this prestigious award three times. The event was attended by our own Steve Cartwright and Luke Cartwright at the Vox venue in Birmingham.

TTG Top Travel Agency in Wales Winner.

The most exciting fact for us is that we have won this award on the basis of serving the Solo Cruise and Solo Holiday Markets.

The profile of the Solo Holiday Market once always a neglected part of the travel industry has been raised yet again.

In fact as a direct result it's now fast becoming recognised as a hugely important part of the travel industry.

Passion For Cruises will continue to fly the solo flag even higher and influence our trade partners on your behalf and continue to make travel for solo guests affordable and fair with low and no solo supplements.

We would like to say that the whole team is humbled to be able to work on your behalf and that without your support none of this would be possible.

A huge thank you to all our loyal solo guests for your understanding and patience through what continues to be a hugely troubling and difficult time in the travel industry.

Finally moving forward we are always looking at new ideas and opportunities which we look forward to sharing with you in the near future.


FOR THE SECOND CONSECUTIVE YEAR CARTWRIGHT TRAVEL & PASSION FOR CRUISES SCOOP TTG AWARD FOR TOP TRAVEL AGENCY IN WALES

TTG 2017 Top Wales Travel Agency

Local independent travel agency Cartwright Travel and Passion For Cruises has just been voted the best travel agency in Wales for 2017.

The prestigious award was handed out at the Vox Venue NEC in Birmingham on Monday evening 13 March, 2017.

The Top 50 Travel Agency Awards

TTG (Travel Trade Gazette) which was the the worlds first weekly travel trade newspaper introduced a list of top performing travel agencies in the UK and Ireland. The aim being to recognise the top industry experts.

The award is voted by

All travel suppliers and takes into account high customer services standards.

The team at the award winning agency of 9 have a combined experience in the travel industry of over 169 years.

What makes Cartwright Travel and Passion For Cruises different?

Managing Director Steve Cartwright explained:

Being truly independent allows us to sell the right product to the right person at the right price and this is backed up with high quality customer service.

This can be seen by the agencies exceptionally high percentage of repeat clients where now many of our customer's have become friends.

This has been backed up by engaging with its clients across a variety of platforms including the latest technology and social media.

One of our main differences is that either of the directors are easily contactable.

The team is small but hugely experienced and is a real family in the true sense of the word as both directors have family involved. Steve Cartwright's son Luke is operations manager and Sales Director Steve Philippou's daughter Flora is now on board heading up the social media side of the operation.

The travel agency specialises in all tailor made worldwide holidays with almost all parts of the world visited by the team.

The agency is also a cruise specialist with over 80 ships visited in total this is the place to come for that first cruise or the latest offers.

They have also cornered a niche market nationally in the often penalised solo traveller where Passion For Cruises offers many no and low single cruises on both ocean and river cruises.

It's a hugely exciting time for the travel industry at the moment and the agency in the sleepy suburb of Rhiwbina, Cardiff certainly has something to be proud of.
