LUXURY travel company Destinology is seeing double after winning gold at major awards.

The Bolton-based firm has a luxury retail store in Wilmslow, and won Best Holiday Company to Southeast Asia – Gold, and Best Weddings and Honeymoons Holiday Company – Gold, in the 2017 British Travel Awards.

It also picked up silver awards for Best Luxury Holiday Company, Best Holiday Company to the Caribbean and Bermuda, Best Holiday Company to the Middle East and Best Holiday Company to the Indian Ocean.

The announcements were made at a ceremony in London attended by more than a thousand travel industry professionals.

Founded in 2004 with 10 members of staff, Destinology now employs more than 120 people in Bolton and Wilmslow.

Managing director Debbie Windle said: “Unlike some other industry accolades the British Travel Awards are based entirely on votes from the UK travelling public.

“So I feel extremely proud that our brand has been recognised in such a prestigious way yet again. Our success is entirely down to every member of staff at Destinology, and I am proud to have joined such a great company.”

The British Travel Awards is the largest consumer-voted awards programme in the world, and this year 722,000 votes were cast by the travelling public to determine the winners.
