Eddie Brown Tours are delighted to have been nationally recognised for the third time in 4 years as one of the UK’s top coach and tour operators! At the recent 2011 Coach Tourism Awards, not only was the company announced as a Finalist in a total of 5 different categories, they also went on to win the prestigious Brochure of the Year Award for their 2011 holiday brochure.
These annual awards recognise and reward the very best companies in the coach tourism industry and a glittering ceremony was attended by 360 coach travel professionals at the Holiday Inn Stratford-upon-Avon. With a history of awards success after winning the UK Holiday Programme of the Year for 2 consecutive years, this year’s judges were impressed with the quality and variety of the entire brochure. In their decision to present the award to Eddie Brown Tours, the judging panel highlighted the clarity of the brochure’s layout and its easy to read and informative holiday descriptions. The judges were also impressed with the attention to detail and personal touches which only a family-run operator can offer its valued clients.
Up against some of the largest and most well established coach operators in the country, Eddie Brown Tours were delighted to be a Finalist with so many other quality companies in the categories of ‘UK Coach Operator of the Year’, ‘Day Excursion Programme of the Year’ and ‘European Operator of the Year’. The icing on the cake to a rewarding evening was being named a Finalist for ‘Website of the Year’ – just 2 months after its launch!
Managing Director Deirdre Brown, daughter of company founder Eddie, collected the Award and said “We were delighted to be named as finalists once again in an impressive 5 of the 7 coach award categories. To win the Brochure of the Year for the first time is a wonderful achievement for the company. Faced with the challenges of the current economic climate, we have been working incredibly hard as a company to adapt and continue to offer the best in choice, quality and service with all of our holidays.
Not only has Eddie Brown Tours been recognised on a national level for being the best in the business, this award is also a well-deserved accolade for our dedicated and hard-working Tours Department staff who arrange and successfully operate over 150 holidays each year. Our success at the awards makes us incredibly proud that our commitment to quality has been officially recognised by our industry peers”.
Coachholidays.com would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Deirdre and the Eddie Brown team on this great achievement and wish them continued success.
