July 12, 2017 Accolades No Comments Email Email

Back-Roads Touring has been nominated for “Best Escorted Tours Holiday Company” and “Best Coach Holiday Company” Awards in the prestigious 2017 British Travel Awards (BTAs).  

The winners will be determined by both UK and non-UK residents, who have until 30 September to cast their vote. The successful companies will be announced at the BTA Gala Awards Dinner, to be held in London on 29 November 2017.

Back-Roads Touring was awarded the BTA for “Best Small Coach Holidays Company” in 2015 and 2016, and has continued to move from strength to strength in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and other international markets ever since.

The small group touring company currently runs tours in the UK and Europe, with a maximum group size of 18 people (21 for Charming Waterways tours).

Back-Roads Touring’s passionate and knowledgeable guides ensure a more personalised experience along with the time to give each stop the attention it deserves.

Rather than simply dropping by top sights and major cities, Back-Roads’ tours invite travellers to see a destination through the eyes of the locals.

 Back-Roads Touring General Manager Daryl Raven said the company is delighted to be announced as nominees in the British Travel Awards.

“We take a lot of pride in putting the customer at the heart of everything we do. Being nominated for not one, but two British Travel Awards validates the collective efforts of our team,” he said.

“We’ve spent a quarter of a century creating tours that cater to the mature traveller’s demand for authentic local experiences, culinary excellence and premium quality.”

“We’re looking forward to celebrating the amazing work being done in the travel industry at the Awards ceremony in November.”

BTA chief executive Lorraine Barnes Burton said The British Travel Awards give travellers the opportunity to reward travel and tourism enterprises for outstanding performance in service delivery and product offering.

“Voting in the 2017 Awards is now open and nominated companies have until 30th September to lobby their happy customers for votes – good luck to Back-Roads Touring.”

The British Travel Awards are considered the benchmark for excellence when it comes to determining who really is the best in the travel industry.

The British Travel Awards are a proudly independent organisation, verified by leading global business practitioners, Deloitte.
