8 March, 2010 makes the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies again

For the fifth year, leading travel add-ons provider Holiday Extras has been awarded a place in the prestigious Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For list.

The 2010 line-up was revealed at a glamorous ceremony at the Battersea Evolution, London on Thursday 25 February, hosted by Kate Silverton.

A group of ten specially chosen Holiday Extras colleagues, recommended by heads of teams for their great contribution from across the business, attended the event.

Callum Johnson, group head of people and development at Holiday Extras, said: "This is a fantastic achievement for the whole Holiday Extras team. Our people are the key to our success and we constantly strive to attract, recognise, reward and retain them.

"We are very proud to appear on the Sunday Times list again: especially against such strong competition from the country's best companies and during tough times for the travel industry. It's time to celebrate."

The Hythe-based travel firm has enjoyed a year of award successes, including being named as one of the UK's top ten call centres for customer service in 2009 and the Employer of the Year at the Kent Excellence in Business Awards (KEiBA) 2009.
