(12 June 2019) British ferry company P&O Ferries has been awarded the title of Best Sea Crossing Operator for groups at this year’s Group Travel Awards, in a ceremony which took place at Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel in London last week.
Featuring in a competitive category against other operators providing services between Britain and the continent, P&O Ferries were once again victorious, having previously held the title in 2016.
David Ashcroft, Key Account Manager, Group Travel at P&O Ferries collected the award on the night and commented, “It’s an honour to receive this award championing our services. Our dedicated Coach and Group Services team work hard to ensure that our offering meets the needs of many – giving great value for money, plus plenty of onboard facilities. Our sincerest thank you to everyone who voted for us.”

This year the awards ceremony was hosted by BAFTA award-winning television presenter Michaela Strachan, who welcomed winners from the 26 nominated award categories (voted for by readers of GTO magazine and the Group Travel Grapevine) and five special editor’s awards.
