Milano , 11 July 2001 - The award for Europe’s best service station in 2001 went to a sales outlet of the Autogrill Group, the Italian multinational that is world leader in catering services for travelers. The winning service area is “Corbières Nord” in France on the A61 between Narbonne and Toulouse, near Carcassonne. The survey, done every year by ADAC (the German automobile club), tested 95 catering areas on the main European holiday routes. The survey involved a wide range of parameters – safety of circulation, exterior appearance, entrance and interiors, table and self-service, retail sale of food and non-food products, service, communication services (telephone, fax, etc.), respect for the environment, hygiene, and value for money.
