Real Russia: Winners at the World Travel Awards 2014

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the 2014 title of “Russia’s Leading Travel Agency” for the 2nd consecutive year. It is a privilege to be given this recognition with an award from the “Oscars” of the Travel Industry and we owe our success to the hard work of our staff and the support of our customers and partners.

Our MD, Chris Watkins, and his wife attended the World Travel Award ceremony, held in Greece on Saturday evening, and they were thrilled to be presented with the title. It was a night full of glamour and celebrations, which was attended by Europe’s travel elite. This interview featured on the night of the Gala so captures Chris' delight of winning the award!

This category has been especially difficult this year as not only has there been competition from industry giants, who have also won the award in previous years, we have also had to contend with the fact that no other company has won this award twice. However Real Russia’s services shone through as satisfied customers cast their vote, making this award a reality!

We would like to give thanks to our customers, for taking the time to place their votes and to our partners for spreading the word about the nomination and encouraging their satisfied customers to vote too, as we cannot reiterate enough, without your support this simply could not have been possible.

In celebration, Real Russia are delighted to make a contribution to our chosen charity, Go Help (March blog). Their volunteers work tirelessly to provide health care services to 3rd world countries and we hope that our contribution will allow them to continue their excellent work for a worthy cause.

Today, Real Russia supports thousands of people travelling to the region with all aspects of travel services including rail tours, international & domestic train tickets, accommodation, visas and transfers. Since last year, we have also had the privilege to develop further, employing more staff, launching a new website to make our customer experience more enjoyable and teaming up with new partners, so that we can continue to broaden accessibility travelling from Europe and China all the way to Russia and back again.

Winning the award means so much to everyone at Real Russia, especially as the results are based on votes from satisfied customers and knowing that we have continued to meet this expectation since winning last years’ award too means even more!
