The Holiday Place wins this week's TTG Mystery Shopper visit

The Holiday Place has been picked as the winner by a mystery shopper working for the Travel Trade Gazette (TTG) after coming out on top after a web search results and travel agency visit.

The mystery shopper visited two agencies in Southampton, selected a travel company off a newspaper website, and then carried out a web search for "holiday in Antigua" and selected The Holiday Place.

The shopper was searching for holidays for couples in Antigua at a four or five-star resort and spa for April 2011. The Holiday Place was currently offering Antigua holidays at the five star Antigua hotel with spa, the Verandah Resort and Spa.

The mystery shopper wrote individual summaries on all four of the travel companies in the travel trade magazine after hailing The Holiday Place as this week's winner of the search.

The report said: An easy site to navigate, the homepage had lots of offers on it and a number to call a representative. Searching was straightforward but I had to fill in an online form to get prices. I called an agent who painted an even better picture of the holiday than the website, talked about accommodation, beaches, the capital and even taxi prices.

"I got the impression they really knew what they were talking about. They even called back with an even better offer for an extra £150. First class service."

The shopper then wrote a final summary of her experience and said: "Mark Sumpter at The Holiday Place offered unbeatable service. I was impressed with his knowledge and enthusiasm. He suggested seven nights' all-inclusive at the Verandah Resort & Spa departing Gatwick on April 26 at £2,800 for two people."

The Holiday Place offers a number of fantastic promotions and offers for Antigua holidays throughout the year so get booking and receive "unbeatable service"!
