We’re the World’s & Europe’s Leading Ferry Operator!

It’s always a proud moment when you’re recognised for your good work, so we’re honoured to have been named as ‘Europe’s Leading Ferry Operator’ in the 2014 World Travel Awards. We also hold the ‘World’s Leading Ferry Operator’ accolade for 2013, 2012 and 2011, with the 2014 winner set to be announced later this year.

Recognised as The Oscars of the travel industry, the World Travel Awards are voted for by the public and travel professionals, so the fact that we have won these awards consistently over a number of years is no mean feat!

What’s more, we have also been nominated for two awards at this year’s prestigious British Travel Awards; ‘Best English Channel Ferry Operator’ and ‘Best Ferry Operator’. So if you’ve enjoyed travelling with us and you’d like to help us win, then please vote for us before 30 September by clicking the link below.
