Award Winning Woods
What an amazing award-winning year it has been for Woods Travel Ltd of BognorRegis. Following their success at the UK Coach Awards in May, where they won the Gold Award for Top Small Fleet Operator, on 7th September 2018 they attended the Johnston Press Southern Business Awards at The Grand Hotel Brighton.
These awards recognise, reward and celebrate the achievements of local businesses within the South Coast region, encompassing East and West Sussex and the Portsmouth area.
Woods Travel Limited is a family run business serving West Sussex and the surrounding areas with award-winning passenger transportation to destinations all over the UK and Europe and has done for over 47 years.
Their tour programme offers holidays to over 170 destinations across the UK and Europe, together with an extensive excursion brochure of up to 300 Day Trips, a private hire service for local groups and organisations, and they are also a fully independent ABTA travel agency. They believe one of the reasons for their continued growth and success is their customer service, with approximately 75% of customers having either travelled before with Woods or been recommended by current customers.
Woods were one of over 80 local businesses who were shortlisted for these awards, having won the Medium Business Award and Overall Business Award at the Observer & Gazette Business Awards back in April. On Friday they continued their success by winning Medium Business of the Year out of the six finalists, and as the presentations were concluded they were announced as the Overall Business of the Year!
On the night Sales Director, Alison Waterfield-Jones, said their success was due to: ‘great staff, great customers and great customer service. We like what we do and we all like each other which helps. Thank you to our customers, many who have travelled with us many times, and our dedicated staff. We will soon be celebrating our 50 years and are ready for big celebrations after this.’
