TRAVEL BY DARCY Named “Best Travel Agency” by BRIDE Magazine
NH-Based Online Company Honored in “Best of Bride 2016” Poll
Epping, NH—(August 2016)—TRAVEL BY DARCY has been chosen by the readers of New Hampshire Magazine’s BRIDE as “Best of Bride 2016” for Best Travel Agency. Honored in the magazine’s seventh annual online poll, TRAVEL BY DARCY will be included in the September 2016 issue of BRIDE.
“We are beyond thrilled to receive BRIDE’s award for Best Travel Agency,” says owner, Darcy Allen. “I’m a lifelong travel enthusiast, and this year marks my 20th anniversary as a travel agent. This award is a lovely acknowledgement of my skill and my passion for matching people with their best travel experiences.”
According to TRAVEL WEEKLY, the national newspaper for the travel industry, a study from the American Society of Travel Agents finds an increasing number of travelers are using travel agents. Travelers who used agents cite the convenience of having an expert do the work (76%) and depending on someone with knowledge of suppliers and destinations (75%).
TRAVEL BY DARCY offers the inside scoop on all types of vacations, from romantic honeymoons and destination weddings to once-in-a-lifetime customized adventures to memory-making multi-generational trips. Darcy is knowledgeable about destinations both exotic and close-to-home, and she has personal experience with a full spectrum of travel types, including all-inclusive resorts, villa rentals, escorted tours, and ocean and river cruising. “There’s nothing I enjoy more than tailoring vacations for my clients, no matter where in the world they want to go, and how much—or how little—they want to spend,” says Darcy. “I know how important travel is, and how important it is to get right, especially when it comes to a honeymoon. So to be recognized by BRIDE readers is very rewarding. This award is very special to me.”
The “Best of Bride 2016” poll, which was conducted from the beginning of April to the end of May, had 45 categories. “It’s the magazine’s seventh annual poll,” says Barbara Coles, editor of BRIDE. “We felt the poll was a way to recognize people in New Hampshire’s bridal industry who strive every day to provide great service for couples who are planning one of the most important days in their life.”
TRAVEL BY DARCY’s website shares Darcy’s insider advice on a range of travel topics, including honeymoons. For example, at travelbydarcy.com/honeymoon-and-romance, those about to be married and long-time couples will find Darcy’s tips on where to go, when to go, how to budget, and more.
“A honeymoon is usually the first thing a couple does once married, and I set out to make sure it’s an experience that sets a flawless tone for their life together,” says Darcy. “I encourage those planning a wedding to visit my site for inspiration, and then contact me to get matched with their just-right honeymoon.”
