Claire Grantham-Smith from Casino Travel Shoppe recently won the Best Regional Travel Consultant category in the Australian Travel Awards.

Claire was picked from hundreds of travel agents from all over Australia and was presented with her trophy at a glitzy awards evening in Sydney recently, hosted by radio presenter Adam Spencer.

In their official statement, judges had high praise for Claires talent as a travel agent.

This was an incredibly tight category to judge with all of the agents proving incredibly successful under some unbelievably trying circumstances, the judges said. Claire, in particular, has overcome some very testing hurdles and come out shining. Her perseverance in the industry, commitment to the local community and passion for the job made her an outstanding entrant.

However, Claire was modest about her win.

Its a team effort and my colleagues deserve just as much credit as I do, she said.
