Kicking off our 30th year with a top award nomination!

This year we’re celebrating 30 years of trading and we’ve received a birthday gift in the form of a top travel nomination! 

Industry bible, Trade Travel Gazette, have announced that Peakes has been shortlisted as a finalist for Luxury Travel Agency of the Year in the TTG Luxury Travel Awards 2022.  

We are thrilled! This is a fantastic achievement for the team. We are proud to provide incredible luxury holidays with our exceptional customer service, from cruises to adventure tours with our trusted operators.  

To have been shortlisted for this national award is an honour, and after two incredibly challenging years, this news means all the more to the team here. 

Since 2016 the TTG have shortlisted Peakes as a top 50 travel agency in central England every year, and in 2020 crowned us the UK and Ireland's number one travel agency.  

Now we have been recognised by TTG for offering exceptional service in the luxury travel market. The winner will be announced at a glittering event in London in early March – wish us luck! 


Celebrating 30 years of trading 

Frances Peake set up the business in 1992 from her farmhouse kitchen table. Three years later demand for her services saw the business move into a small unit in the Darwin Shopping Centre, and then into a bigger unit two years later with a team of four travel consultants.  

In 2001, Peakes acquired luxury specialist Ron Morgan Travel, which brought Claire Moore into the business. In 2007 both companies came together at the Mardol premises, and Peakes Travel Elite as you know it today was born. 

Thank you to everyone who has supported our family-run business over the last three decades.

Here’s to many more years of providing dream holidays!
