STA Travel, the world’s largest student and youth travel company, today announced that it has won a distinguished Global Youth Travel Award as the Best Youth Travel Provider as voted on by young travelers.

Presented during the 23rd World Youth Student Travel Conference (WYSTC), the award honors outstanding achievements that are defining the present and future course of the youth and student travel industry.

WYSTC is the annual event of the World Youth Student and Educational WYSE Travel Confederation, the world’s largest and most powerful network of youth and student travel operators. This year’s awards included categories that were voted on by customers for the first time. Accepting the award on behalf of STA Travel were company employees from the United States, United Kingdom and central divisions — Ian Kynor, James Jasper, Suzie Nagle and Zoe Tasker. The Global Youth Travel Awards, now in it’s 4th year, were presented to winners at a gala dinner at The Mansion House in the heart of Dublin, Ireland. The glittering ceremony was attended by hundreds of leaders in the global travel industry.

“We are honored that STA Travel has been voted as the travel provider of choice by our customers,” said Adam Cooper, Senior Vice President of STA Travel North America. “We have been building exclusive adventures from the ground up in direct response to the needs and wants of our customers for the past 35 years. Receiving this award is a reflection of our commitment to providing the best eye-opening experiences to our travelers.”

STA Travel, which celebrates its 35th birthday this month, was recognized for establishing industry excellence within the fast-growing youth travel sector. The company specializes in creating experiences for students, recent grads and young adults to explore the world. In business since 1979, there is a core retail network in 11 countries including Australia, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, Thailand, United Kingdom and United States.
