A strong business doesn’t build itself. It takes hard work, compromise, expert knowledge, a great product, and more than a little luck. It also takes strong and productive relationships with partners within the industry. For over 48 years, we at Goway have worked hard to build robust relationships with travel agents, knowing that these strong bonds are essential for customizing dream vacations for globetrotters.

On June 14 at the Baxter Media Agent’s Choice Awards 2018, Goway won multiple awards in recognition of our robust relationship with agents and exceptional line of products for world travellers. These included two top regional tour operator awards, which recognize the best travel operators to various regions of the world.

Goway won Favourite Tour Operator to Africa, in recognition of the dynamic Africa & Middle East experts who customize unforgettable trips to everywhere from Cape Town on the southwestern tip of South Africa to the Serengeti in Tanzania to the pyramids of Giza in Egypt. We also won Favourite Tour Operator to Asia Pacific for our dedicated service and wide range of products to Thailand, Japan, China, India, and the many incredible nations of Asia. In both categories, we won with almost three times as many points as the runners-up, demonstrating Goway’s dedication to providing unforgettable tailor-made travel experiences to clients and our concerted efforts to foster strong relationships with industry professionals.

As well, it was not just our regional teams of Destination Experts that were recognized during the Agent’s Choice Awards. Travel agents recognized Aubrey Schmidt, our Business Development Manager for Central Canada, as one of the best sales reps in Canada, acknowledging that his tireless work makes them “feel valued” and “gives them added confidence when it comes to recommending and selling” Goway’s products and services.

Of course, Goway’s exceptional team of Destination Experts, BDMs, managers, operations staff, and marketing professionals would be rudderless without the experienced guidance of our founder and CEO, Bruce Hodge. Bruce Hodge started Goway in his apartment in 1970 and has grown it into one of North America’s leading travel companies, which sends globetrotters to over 100 exotic destinations in Asia, Africa & the Middle East, Australia & the South Pacific, Central & South America, and the UK & Europe. For his incalculable contributions to the travel industry and his exceptional work leading Goway for almost five decades, Bruce was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Baxter Media Agent’s Choice Awards 2018.

As demonstrated by all these awards, Goway has the experience and expertise to craft dream vacations to incredible destinations all across the world. Our Destination Experts have the insider knowledge and professional relationships necessary to ensure you have a perfect vacation.
