A PORTISHEAD travel agent has been named Home Worker of the Year by a national organisation.

Claire Body beat off 600 entrants to pick up the prestigious title, which she was presented with at the Travel Weekly Agent Achievement Awards, held at London’s Lancaster Hotel last month.

The mum-of-two launched her home-based travel business in the Village Quarter in November 2011 and became a member of Independent Travel Experts (ITE).

Her entry was unanimously voted the winner from a shortlist of five, with the judges picking out her motivation and tenacity in building a business of great potential in such a short period of time as particular achievements.

Claire’s high levels of customer service were also recognised, as was her ability to embrace every opportunity presented to promote her brand.
