High summer is always an exciting time of year at Newmarket Holidays. Quite apart from the buzz and bustle of building, selling and operating holidays to everywhere from Lake Garda to the West Coast USA via Andre Rieu concerts in Vienna and Maastricht, it’s when we first hear whether we’ve been lucky enough (and good enough!) to win any nominations in the annual British Travel Awards. The Awards aren’t just important because of the exposure they give us as a company – they’re also a really lovely indicator of how the ‘quiet majority’ of our customers feel about the service we provide and the holidays they have with us.
And so, we’re delighted to announce that, this year, Newmarket Holidays has been nominated for five different British Travel Awards. We’re in the running for:
Best Escorted Tours Holiday Company
Best Coach Holiday Company
Best Holiday Company to the Italian Peninsula and Malta
Best Holiday Company to the USA
Best Holiday Company for Customer Service
We hope you’ll agree that this is pretty great, and we’d really like to win in every category. But to do that we’ll need your help because it’s public votes – your votes – that will decide the winner, not some shadowy panel of experts or special travel trade selection process.
Since we won our first award, Best Coach Holiday Operator, at the 2011 British Travel Awards your votes have been incredibly good to us. Last year we were nominated in three categories, won one (Best Tour Operator to the Italian Peninsula and Malta) and placed in the top three in the other two despite really strong opposition. So, we really hope that you’ll take the time to vote and help us win again.
And (at the risk of over-egging the pudding!) don’t forget that every person who votes will automatically be entered into a fantastic prize draw and will have the chance to win one of a whole host of really exciting holiday prizes.
