Holiday Extras Customers' Awards

Now in its third year, the Holiday Extras Customers' Awards is bigger and better for 2011.

The winners have now been announced for the 2011 awards. This year we beat 2010's record 24,000 votes with a staggering 66,000 surveys completed. Award categories range from best airport hotel and best airline to most inspirational travel film.

Our awards are voted for by real holiday travellers every year, and are a true barometer of quality and customer service in the air travel industry today.

This year we have introduced two new categories, Best Travel Guide Publisher and Most Inspirational Travel Film, which were open to votes from the general public.

Who are the winners?

The winners were revealed on September 15, 2011 at an exclusive presentation evening hosted by leading travel writer, TV and radio personality Simon Calder at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London:
