The Silver Travel Awards

 

Over 50s holidays

Cruises and rail journeys, city escapes, country retreats and those bucket-list adventures were presented before us as living proof that travel is truly alive, inspiring our future holidays while casting us back to those memorable travel moments.

In a creative virtual ceremony, The Silver Travel Awards were announced to an audience of hundreds of travel industry colleagues and Silver Travel Advisor members on the 16th September. Taking place in the Wallace Collection, home to The Laughing Cavalier, Gyles Brandreth took centre stage as the Master of Ceremonies.

The over 50s travellers showed their appreciation of travel companies, cruise lines and destinations by casting over 225,000 votes – 60% more than last year, to determine the best companies and services for the over 50s during the last 12 months.
