Saga Travel Group Scoop – simply the best!

Saga’s travel businesses - Saga Holidays, Saga Cruises, Titan Travel and Destinology have been declared simply the best for the second year running at the travel industry Oscars – the British Travel Awards. This year the group scooped a staggering 47 awards, 32 of which were Gold.

Andrew Strong, chief executive of Saga’s Travel businesses said: “I am enormously proud of our teams who have worked tirelessly to make sure that our holidays and cruises are simply the best! And with a record amount of UK travellers voting this year, the BTAs are a great way of seeing the world though customers' eyes.”

British Travel Awards’ chief executive Lorraine Barnes Burton said: “More than a quarter of a million consumers voted this year to determine the winners of the 2015 British Travel Awards – it’s the largest awards programme in the UK and to win is a clear statement that companies are providing excellence in travel to the discerning consumer.”

The travelling public regard the British Travel Awards winner’s logo as the benchmark for excellence when it comes to finding out who are the best travel companies and the Saga Travel Group is to be congratulated on their achievement.”
