Alfa Travel Coach Driver of the Year – Roy Barber
Alfa Travel, always famous for quality, value for money coach holidays, is pleased to announce the 2015 Driver of the Year Award has been awarded to Roy Barber!
Regular guests will know that a knowledgeable, helpful driver makes all the difference on a coach holiday. What’s more – a coach driver with real character and personality certainly puts the wow factor into a holiday or short break. These are some of the factors that our drivers are graded against which is why the award is all the more special as it is ultimately decided by guests who have travelled and experienced our excellent drivers.
This long running award always generates a lot of excitement and real competitive spirit amongst our new and our more experienced members of the Alfa team.
Roy has been with Alfa for over 8 years and this is the 3rd time he has won the title. Roy has clearly demonstrated his professionalism throughout his career with Alfa Travel and is keen to hold onto his number one status. The best place to find our number 1 driver is usually on tours to Blackpool – Roy’s knowledge of the Fylde Coast proves invaluable to our customers. Roy really does go that extra mile and teamed with his positive attitude, he is a worthy ambassador of the company.
Dave McCallion has been awarded 2nd place and Dave Forster came in 3rd.
The Driver of the Year competition brings out the competitive nature of our drivers. They are marked on their customer skills, driving and administrative areas, meaning that it does not prelude any driver from being the winner.
Andrew Blundell, Operations Director for Alfa Coaches commented; “to achieve a hat-trick of Driver of the Year awards is quite an achievement, and demonstrates Roy’s consistency in delivering outstanding service to our customers. I’m equally proud of Dave McCallion and Dave Forster, who came very close to winning the title. All 3 of these drivers are great examples of the outstanding team of drivers we have at Alfa”
