We’re delighted to announce that we have won for the first time in the prestigious British Travel Awards 2022 for Best Escorted Group Holiday Travel Company.’  We have been providing our customers with expertly crafted travel experiences to some of the best destinations in Europe and across the world for over 25 years. We take care of just about everything on our guided holidays, from planning the itineraries, flights, accommodation, transfers and expert local guides. You can easily join one of our guided tours, to discover some of the most spectacular destinations worldwide as we offer departures from Belfast, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and London.

From all of us at Travel Department, we really want to thank all of our lovely customers and friends who voted for is and helped us achieve this incredible accolade in the British Travel Awards!

The British Travel Awards is the largest consumer voted awards programme in the UK travel industry and after two years of absence the ceremony took place in November 2022 to celebrate the resilience of the travel industry and recognise the best UK travel companies and tour operators. BTA director of events and partnerships, Lorraine Barnes Burton, said:

“The British Travel Awards are the largest travel industry accolade voted for exclusively by the consumer, and the Awards serve to recognise all that is great about travel, as experienced by the travelling public. Travel companies have had a tough time during the pandemic, but it is wonderful to be back travelling again and receiving a British Travel Award heralds a promising start to 2023.  Understandably, votes were up by 158% on the 2020 voting figures, showing that consumers really missed travelling, and are keen to have their say when it comes to those all-important holidays."

After a tough couple of years, we’re delighted to welcome back so many of our regular customers and of course, to introduce new customers to our holidays and we look forward to continuing to grow our company, as one of the leading providers of guided group holidays. CEO Sara Zimmerman said:

“Travel Department is one of Ireland’s leading travel brands, and while we’ve been in the UK for well over 10 years, we’re really only now starting to make our mark. This win in the British Travel Awards represents a real milestone for us. It is particularly rewarding for our teams including our guides around the world who work so hard to ensure that every holiday with us is truly memorable."
