An award for international trade has given Grantham-based travel agents Debbie Johnson and Zoe McGuffie a reason to celebrate.

They run their own travel businesses from home as part of leading independent company Travel Counsellors, which has just won a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in recognition of its rapid international expansion.

Since its first overseas launch in Ireland nine years ago, the company has experienced a growth of 120per cent and now has 800 Travel Counsellors like Debbie and Zoe across the UK and a further 500 abroad.

Debbie and Zoe said: “We are thrilled the company has received this fantastic accolade.

“Our international expansion hugely benefits us and our customers as we have access to exclusive products and can draw on the local knowledge and support of fellow Travel Counsellors in eight countries across the globe.”
