We’re thrilled that PlainSailing.com have been nominated for a British Travel Award – now we need your help (and 1 minute of your time) to win the award!!
“This season has been tough for all travel firms, but it’s also given us a chance to show you how exceptional our customer service team are: 70% of our 2020 bookings have had to be rescheduled to 2021, but thanks to our super-responsive and personal team, it’s been a relatively pain-free experience for our customers – we’ve rebooked their holidays quickly, no stress, done all the hard work for them, and every single customer has gone away happy. Amazing.
“Truth be told, it’s been a pretty miserable year in terms of getting boats out on the water, so this could be a great way to end the year on a high. So please, please, please take a second to vote for us, and, if you liked what we did for you, please share the link pln.sg/BTA with your friends and get them to vote for us too!”
