Somerset Travel Agent Celebrates 10 Years with Holiday Show
Global Independent Travel Centre in North Somerset will be celebrating 10 years in business by hosting a regional Holiday Show. The event will be supported by more than 25 worldwide travel suppliers who will have stands showcasing their latest destinations and products. The North Somerset Holiday Show will take place at the Doubletree by Hilton Cadbury House in Congresbury, on Sunday 9 February. Entry is free and everyone is welcome.
Those attending will be able to meet with cruise experts, escorted tour companies, chat to honeymoon providers, pick up specialist brochures and seek holiday inspiration for 2020 and beyond. Expect big names, including representatives from Cunard, MSC Cruises, Kuoni, Sandals, Inghams, Saga Holidays, Intrepid, Exodus, Wendy Wu, Bristol Airport and more!
As part of the 10 year celebrations there will be complimentary birthday cake and refreshments, a charity raffle, exclusive talks, travel offers and a chance to win a £250 holiday voucher. Bakers Dolphin, based in nearby Weston-Super-Mare, will be displaying their ‘Gold’ coach for all to see. Plus wine lovers can guess which country selected wines originate from with a wine tasting stand. Live Booking Stations will also be available on the day so you can snap up those travel deals and place deposits.
Global Independent Travel Centre opened in Clevedon ten years ago and has since expanded with a second branch in the nearby village of Winscombe. The travel firm has strong community roots, supporting Christmas fairs and charity events and sponsoring local sports clubs.
Lisa Weakley, Managing Director at Global Independent Travel Centre said: “I’m very proud to be celebrating our 10th anniversary in business. The Holiday Show brings together clients old and new with just some of the travel companies we work with. It’s an exciting occasion. From Cruise to Coach, Honeymoons to Escorted Tours, visitors get a rare chance to meet with operators face to face. Even the most discerning traveller should find some holiday inspiration seeking personal advice and tips along the way! We thank all those who have supported Global Independent Travel Centre over the years.”

I spoke with a couple very keen on the Inca Trail and I had many discussions with people wanting Costa Rica, Vietnam, Sri Lanka and India. The Adventure Cruise brochures were also very popular!”
