Date published: 28 Feb 18

John SuchetWe are delighted to announce that voting has commenced for this year’s Silver Travel Awards! This is your opportunity to choose the travel companies, cruise lines and destinations that have given really excellent service and ensured you have had a superb time whilst away. 

Whether you love to cruise on oceans or rivers, travel by train, take an escorted tour or enjoy a self-catering villa holiday, we would like to hear from you! Tell us which companies truly offer the best in travel experiences for mature travellers by voting for them. Vote now.

Silver Travel AwardsThe winners, decided by you all, will be announced at an exciting evening Awards ceremony on 9th July at the stunning National Portrait Gallery in London, hosted by Classic FM's ever charming John Suchet. We’ll be inviting you to apply for tickets to attend later in the year, so keep an eye on our monthly newsletters to find out how to do this.   

What’s more, everyone who votes for the Silver Travel Awards will be entered into a prize draw to win a festive Saga Cruise, for two, in December 2018, visiting the traditional Christmas markets in Bremen and Hamburg.
