(2 December 2019) British ferry company P&O Ferries has been awarded ‘Best Ferry and Mini Cruise Operator’ and ‘Best Ferry Booking Website’ at the annual British Travel Awards. The winners were revealed at an evening gala, which took place at London Evolution in Battersea Park, on 27 November 2019.
With strong competition from other ferry operators providing services between Britain and the continent, P&O Ferries once again emerged victorious, having been the recipient of ‘Best Ferry and Mini Cruise Operator’ for an impressive 11 consecutive years.
Sarah Rosier, Director of Passenger Sales at P&O Ferries, who collected the awards on the night, said, “It was an honour to receive two awards recognising the quality of our services. We have consistently been voted the best in class by the public for over a decade, and this is testament to the hard work that our team puts in day in and day out, to ensure that we offer a superior service to our customers. We’d like to thank everyone who voted for us, and look forward to seeing them onboard again soon.”
British Travel Awards’ Chief Executive, Lorraine Barnes Burton, added, “We would like to congratulate P&O Ferries on winning both ‘Best Ferry and Mini Cruise Operator’ and ‘Best Ferry Booking Website’. Competition was particularly strong this year, but ultimately it was the travelling public who decided the winners by voting for the travel companies they consider the best in the business.”
For over a decade, the independently run British Travel Awards has celebrated the very best suppliers in the leisure travel and tourism industry. It represents the largest and most influential poll of public opinion in the UK, with votes verified by Deloitte. Hosted this year by TV presenter and author Gyles Brandreth, the awards ceremony saw over 200 travel and leisure brands accredited across 80 different categories.
