We are pleased to announce the Alfa Travel 2020 Tour Driver of the Year has been awarded to Glyn Harrison!
Regular guests will know how invaluable a knowledgeable and helpful driver is and makes all the difference on a coach holiday. What’s more, a coach driver with real character and personality puts the wow factor into a holiday or short break.
With drivers having such a key role to play in the delivery of outstanding service to our customers, it is only right that customer feedback provides significant contribution to the award judging. In addition to this, a range of other driver related skills are taken into account, ensuring the award recognises the drivers who perform to the pinnacle of their profession throughout the season.
To be eligible to win the Tour Driver of the Year Award a driver would need to be full time and have been here for the full season.
This long running award always generates a lot of excitement and competitive spirit amongst our new and our more experienced members of the Alfa team.
