STA Travel has been crowned the Best Youth Travel Agent in the world, after winning the category and scooping the overall award at the Global Youth Travel Awards ceremony in Montreal.
Voted for by the public, STA Travel CEO John Constable said it was an amazing feeling to be recognised by young travellers everywhere.
“I’m very grateful to the people who voted for us,” he said. “We believe travel is the  ultimate adventure and are committed to giving students and young people all over the world access to affordable flights and adventures.”

This is the third time that STA Travel has claimed Best Youth Travel Award at the GYTA. The world’s largest student and youth travel company, STA Travel also won Best Marketing Campaign for its pioneering Philippines Unplugged campaign in partnership with Tourism

“I’m extremely proud of our people for this incredible achievement,” Mr Constable said. “We have some of the best and most creative minds in the travel industry, and I’d like to thank every person that has contributed to our success.”

STA Travel’s winning marketing campaign shines the spotlight on the Philippines and documents STA Travel Sounds’ band Skinny Living on a journey through the island province of Palawan.
