PTAs to get £50 for Christmas dinner

Gift given to every Personal Travel Agent

Personal Travel Agents at Co-operative Travel, the homeworking division of of Midcounties Co-op, has given each of its more than 165 travel agents a £50 food voucher to go towards buying Christmas dinner.

Sheena Whittle, head of The Personal Travel Agents at Co-operative Travel said: “2020 has been a difficult year across the board and, like everyone in the travel industry, our Personal Travel Agents have had a tough time, financially and emotionally. Teaming up with our colleagues in the Co-op Food division to gift each PTA with a voucher to buy their Christmas dinner was our way of sending the homeworkers a big Co-op hug to say thank you.

“This year, more than any other, has demonstrated the value of being part of a diverse co-operative society, with divisions that span multiple industry sectors. Whilst our homeworkers run their own travel businesses, they are never alone. They have the unwavering support and backing of the wider Midcounties Co-operative and the security that provides, during these challenging times in travel.”

In addition to the food vouchers for its own agents, The Personal Travel Agents at Co-operative Travel has gifted an extra 20 £50 Co-op Food vouchers to ABTA Lifeline to award to travel industry colleagues and their families who need a helping hand this Christmas.
