BETA is delighted to announce the winners of the 2015 British Youth Travel Awards.
This is our industry’s opportunity to reward our high achievers, gain recognition, and raise the profile of the work and individual successes of organisations engaged in youth, student and educational travel, to from and within the UK.
These awards are co-ordinated by the British Educational Travel Association (BETA) and we are delighted to be able to reward and support the excellent work and high standards that our members and industry stakeholders demonstrate through their work year on year. From creating new and innovative products and programmes for young travellers, to outstanding examples of customer service and responding to the needs of these important individuals – individuals that collectively are worth over £20 billion to the UK economy each year.
Having grown from a single category back in 2007, these awards have matured in stature and importance. For many these awards represent something special, something to work towards and this is demonstrated in the high quality of the entries received this year.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all that have taken the time to enter these awards, also huge thanks to our sponsors and supporters that have enabled us to deliver this event and to the judges that have volunteered their time to individually score each of the entries in this year’sCompetition.
“It’s encouraging that each year the standard of entries for the awards improves with more innovation, resource and diversity. The youth of today have an enormous and comprehensive choice of quality options available to them.” Graham Mckenzie, Travelmole

BETA would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the organisations that entered this year’s awards.
