About the Awards

The British Travel Awards is the largest and most influential poll of consumer opinion on the performance of leisure travel and tourism providers.

Since 2008 we have been registering public opinion and rewarding companies considered by customers as the best at their business.

Last year saw over 400,000 consumers vote for their favourite companies and brands in the 13 weeks between July and September. These were not simple positive clicks on a social media apps - but individuals who took the time to register their details and make considered judgements on the companies they believed deserving of recognition.

In these uncertain times it is more important than ever that you can have confidence in the companies providing your travel arrangements. The British Travel Awards is recognised by consumers as the “symbol of excellence” in travel and tourism as accredited companies have be chosen by their most fastidious critics - their customers.

Independence and integrity throughout

The British Travel Awards is a proudly independent organisation. Unlike other travel awards, we have no stakeholder ties or affiliations to any travel companies or trade publications - where public perception believes the results are all too often influenced by panels of travel industry pundits and the winners determined by the leverage of their advertising budget.

The British Travel Awards is funded by the nomination fees, event ticket receipts and the patronage of our sponsors.
