For holiday operators Newmarket Holidays, there is a particular time of year that always gets the office excited, which is the moment that the British Travel Awards (BTA) make their annual announcements. The British Travel Awards is responsible for handing out the accolades to deserving companies within the travel and tourism industry. Each year, the BTA provide nominees for a variety of different categories covering the length and breadth of the sector, and it is up to the public to vote for their favourite nominations. Newmarket Holidays are strong contenders during the voting period for several categories.
Over the previous three years, Newmarket Holidays has been successful at the British Travel Awards, having won an award each year since 2011’s ceremony. That year, Newmarket Holidays won an award for being the Best Coach Holiday Operator – a significant win for Newmarket Holidays as a large part of the holidays that they offer are coach-trip style holidays. With many destinations available in the UK, Newmarket Holidays cover Yorkshire, Edinburgh and the Lake District to name just a few of the selections. Newmarket Holidays has also enjoyed a great deal of success in their coach trips to the continent, with many trips to France and the Netherlands proving very popular. To win the Best Coach Operator Award in 2011 must have been a source of pride for the company.
In 2012, Newmarket Holidays won the award for the Best Tour Operator to the Italian Peninsula and Malta from the British Travel Awards. There are many options available to Newmarket Holidays customers for travelling to Italy, so it comes as small surprise that the company won this award. Customers can take in the historic sights of trips to Pompeii, or while away their time on the banks of Lake Garda, with a holiday from Newmarket Holidays.
Last year, Newmarket Holidays won the prestigious award of Best Large Escorted Tours Holiday Company. This has come in recognition of the success that Newmarket Holidays has enjoyed. It is a testament to the hard work of the team at Newmarket Holidays that its customers voted for it to win such a great award in the travel and tourism industry.
Newmarket Holidays has been in operation since 1983, providing affordable holidays from the UK to destinations around the world. With a particular focus on European escorted tours, Newmarket Holidays has enjoyed a great deal of success in the thirty years that it has been operating. Newmarket Holidays is a customer focused travel company, ensuring that its holidays are reasonably priced, without cutting out the necessary high quality service that they deliver. As a testament to its good customer service, Newmarket Holidays has recently been nominated in the British Travel Awards, for the award for Best Customer Service.
The difference between Newmarket Holidays and many of their competitors is the fact that they do not just organise the trip; for most breaks, there is at least one member of the Newmarket Holidays team to make the experience as enjoyable as possible. These tour managers are trained to the highest standard in the Newmarket Holidays operating procedures, ensuring the smooth running of the holiday while at the same time acting as a guide to the destination. Tour managers are able to not only guide travellers on their holiday in terms of providing an itinerary, but they must know everything there is to know about the surrounding area. Without the tour managers, Newmarket Holidays trips would not be half as memorable.
There are many destinations available to customers of Newmarket Holidays, from trips to cities in the UK to long haul journeys that last three weeks on the other side of the globe.

An industry badge of excellence performs a number of different functions. The awards ceremony itself provides an opportunity for individuals to mingle with people from the same niche and perhaps even to share their experiences. The ceremony can also provide a useful morale boost by recognising the hard work of companies as well as the individual team members within those companies. Perhaps most importantly, though, a badge of excellence provides a clear indication to consumers that the recipient is a name to trust. This is one of the main reasons why the results of the British Travel Awards 2013 are awaited with interest.
The integrity of any awards scheme largely depends on the transparency and fairness of the selection process. When an anonymous committee makes the decisions, it becomes very easy to call those decisions into question. The result of this is that members of the public fail to take the awards seriously, and this can lead to lack of interest among the industry as a whole. Fortunately there isn’t this problem with the British Travel Awards.
The key to the success of these Awards is that it’s the public who make the key decisions. Allowing the public to have their say certainly makes sense given that the whole purpose of the Awards is to measure performance and customer satisfaction. In order to achieve excellence within the travel niche, it’s necessary to ensure that customers are looked after at every stage. This of course includes the services provided on the holiday itself. However, it also relates to the pre-holiday stage – including the booking process. Rather than having an external panel assessing this, it makes sense that customers have their say.
Customers are able to vote in this year’s awards via the British Travel Awards website, www.britishtravelawards.com. This website features a voting registration form, and enables customers to view the various categories and the nominees under those categories. To ensure the integrity of the voting process, international financial services and auditing company, Deloitte, has been appointed to independently verify the results.
Many of the country’s most reputable holiday companies are named as nominees. One such company is Newmarket Holidays. Notching up an impressive five nominations in this year’s Awards, Newmarket Holidays will be looking to build upon past successes. In previous years, Newmarket Holidays has already picked up awards in the Best Coach Holiday and Best Operator to Italy categories.
