Thomas Cook’s Stratford branch has been shortlisted by the Travel Trade Gazette as one of the top 50 travel agencies of the year.

The Stratford Shopping Centre store has also been named as one of the top five in London after the awards panel rated almost 500 candidates in the UK and Ireland.

Award sponsors and a Travel Trade Gazette journalist visited each of the shortlisted agencies to discover what makes each shop stand out from the rest, as well as to determine the eventual regional winners.

Peter Ryan, branch manager, said: “We’re incredibly proud and excited to have made it into the top 50 travel agents in the UK and Ireland and hope to be awarded with the top spot of travel agencies within London.”

The final report from the visits will decide which three of the five stores from each region will join the top fifty list, along with the overall winners.
