MICHELLE Kerr, store manager at Thomson Travel at The Avenue Shopping Centre in Newton Mearns, has received a National Company Award in recognition of her commitment to cruise sales.

Kerr, a cruise expert for TUI Travel who has been in the holiday sector for some 23 years and is recognised widely for her knowledge and enthusiasm when it comes to delighting her customers with cruise, has been presented with a glittering trophy.

Her award follows on from her being shortlisted for the CLIA Travel Agent of the Year award in September.

Commenting on her accolade, she said: “I’m delighted with this acknowledgement of the popularity of our cruise offerings to customers at The Avenue.

“With extensive experience and knowledge of the cruise sector, I enjoy being in a position where I am able to recommend certain cruises to match our customers’ unique requirements, including exclusive offers that are only bookable in a Thomson Travel shop.

“Given that cruises are the fastest growing sector of the holiday market – indeed, it is anticipated that one in every four people will embark on a cruise next year – I’m looking forward to a particularly busy 2014!”

Thomson & Island Cruise Ships offer a full package or cruise only, full board or all inclusive cruises, also specialising in P&O Cruises, Princess Cruises, Cunard, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Azamara, MSC Cruises, Fred Olsen & NCL.
