Run by Group Travel Organiser Magazine, the awards are voted for by readers and the winners will be announced at a ceremony in London on June 5.

We have recently invested £4.5m in our fleet to give an unrivalled travel experience for groups travelling from Southampton to the Isle of Wight this summer”.

The Group Travel Awards are decided by the readers of GTO magazine and have earned an enviable reputation as the most distinguished and respected event serving the group travel market; they reflect a highly valued endorsement from customers in this most important market sector. The voting procedure for 2015 has entailed a Voting Form appearing in the joint October/November issue of GTO and in the January 2015 edition, together with online voting. No duplicate or trade votes were allowed and all voters have to be registered readers of GTO magazine.
