Reader Awards 2018

We want to hear from you!

Our fourth annual Reader Awards will be the definitive word on the best places, experiences, hotels, operators, travel personalities, podcasts and more, as shortlisted by our judges and voted for by you. With a host of exciting new categories, it’s time to think back over the past year in travel and pick your winners! Which destination deserves our Rising Star rosette? Which landmark deserves legendary status? Trains, planes, boats and boutique hotels: help your favourites get recognised!

But don’t worry, it’s not all altruistic: when you cast your votes, you’ll be in with a chance of winning some of these fantastic prizes. Voting is open now until 30 September. Winners will be announced on 26 November at The May Fair Hotel London and in our Jan/Feb 2019 issue
