BTA winners announced



The most voted for British Travel Awards yet was held last night with representatives from across the industry celebrating in New York-themed style.


The prestigious awards, backed by sponsors including Avis, feefo, Shearings, Newmarket Holidays and TravelMole, was hosted by comedian Hal Cruttenden.


The CAA's head of consumer protection Richard Jackson was given a 'Special Recognition Award' as he steps down from the post.


BTA chairman Roger Allard said: "Richard Jackson has shown an intelligence and passion for travel and the people and companies within it during his career .The travel industry certainly would not have survived the recession relatively intact without his support and for that we thank him most sincerely."


The 'Special Recognition Award' will now be an annual fixture at the BTAs.


More than one million people voted for this year's winner and it was a closely fought contest in many categories.
