Silver Travel Awards 2019

Dame Esther RantzenWe are delighted to announce that this year’s Silver Travel Awards are open for voting from 1 March until 10 May 2019. We are inviting you to vote for those companies, cruise lines and destinations that you feel offer a fabulous service to mature travellers, and are happy to go the extra mile, or two, when needed. You’ll be able to choose whichever company you like, we’re keen to hear about both big and small firms: the vital thing is that you’ve received the very best service on your trip. There are twenty one categories from best luxury cruise line to best rail holiday provider, through the various escorted touring operators, activities holidays and best destination for the over 50s.

And each voter will be entered into the prize draw to win a week’s Italian holiday for two, with flights, transfers and most meals included, a UK three-night break for two, or car hire for three days anywhere in the world.

Silver Travel AwardsYou can vote until 10 May, when the counting begins! The Awards will be presented at a sparkling evening reception, hosted by the remarkable Dame Esther Rantzen on 26 June at BAFTA, Piccadilly, London, before an audience of senior travel industry staff, and around 30 Silver Travellers – tickets will be available by ballot nearer the time.   

Have your say - we want to know which companies you rate the most highly!
