2018 British Travel Awards Category Preview

With the holiday market dominated by a few highly visible brands we operate a grading system across the best holiday company and other award categories. This enables smaller companies/brands the opportunity to be recognised and rewarded by their customers.

IMPORTANT CHANGE TO SIZE GRADED AWARDS:

  • When a company applies for listing in a size graded category they will now be required to disclose the overall number of passengers, retail outlets, bookings or turnover as defined by the category.
  • This should be the overall figure for the company/brand and NOT related to the individual award category(s) entered.
  • Companies who fail to disclose this figure at the time of registration will be sent a reminder with their direct voting app url email. If this information is not forthcoming the company/brand will be considered "large" or determined by the British Travel Awards.
  • This number will be published next to the nominee in each of their elected categories on this website until 15 June 2018.
  • Companies can appeal the published figures of competing companies up to 15 June 2018.
  • Any appeal must be accompanied by independent evidence supporting the appeal that can be verified by the British Travel Awards and/or Deloitte.
  • Any appeals received after 15 June 2018 will not be considered.
