Independent travel agency owners have a chance to win £1,000 if they enter the annual Agent Achievement Awards.

The Truly Independent Professional Travel Organisation, which sponsors the Independent Proprietor of the Year Award at the event, is urging agents to enter the awards.

The winner, who will be announced at the awards ceremony at London’s Royal Lancaster Hotel on 23 April,  will receive a £1,000 marketing fund to be spent on a campaign with one or more of the TIPTO supplier members.

Public relations support will also be provided to help the winning agency promote itself in its local area.

Nominations for the award close on March 20. Nomination forms can be downloaded from or from the TIPTO website site.
