The airline that eases luggage restrictions, the hotel group that democratises design-led luxury, the train company that simplifies fares … which of today's travel providers offer exceptional experiences, deliver great value and deserve celebration?
We will be asking you for nominations across 16 categories: European airline; long-haul airline; train operator; ferry company; international airport; cruise line; travel company (winter sports, beach, adventure); place to stay (luxury, family, budget); destination innovation; travel app; and travel guidebook.
An independent panel of industry experts – including TV presenter Ben Fogle and Lonely Planet founder Tony Wheeler – will select the winners, to be announced at a ceremony at the Corinthia Hotel, London, in October.
You will also have the chance to nominate a contender for the Readers' Choice Award, honouring the figure who, throughout history, has done more for travellers than any other, from 19th-century pioneer Thomas Cook to 21st-century globetrotter Michael Palin. Stay tuned: we will be seeking your nominations very soon.Reuse content
