In celebration of the UK’s first National Travel Agent Day, Malta Tourism Authority created a new award for Britain’s travel agents. MTA is asking for recommendations on who should receive the title of ‘Travel Agent of the Year 2020’ which comes with a prize of a three-night city break for two at the Casa Rocca Piccola in the capital city, Valletta. The winner’s nominator can also claim a place on the coveted Malta Academy 2021 FAM to the Maltese Islands from 1st to 4th April next year.

Malta Tourism Authority trade trainer Mimi Visheva said “I’ve been fortunate enough to work with many agents over lockdown and their resilience and attitude has been outstanding, so we cannot wait to see all the entries come in.  The people of Malta are famed for being lively, friendly and passionate and we want to reward kindred spirits in the UK, maybe there is a colleague who continually goes above and beyond for their clients, maybe they have shown great bravery like our own historic Knights of the Order of Saint John or perhaps they have created something altruistic in these challenging times? Whatever it might be, we want to hear about it and share some positivity.”

Winners must be recommended by a fellow travel industry professional in a 200 word entry by 24th August and the winner will be announced on 28th August.
