P&O FERRIES IS NAMED BRITAIN'S FAVOURITE FERRY COMPANY BY TRAVELLING PUBLIC FOR TENTH YEAR RUNNING
P&O FERRIES won the Best Ferry/Minicruise Operator category for a record-breaking tenth consecutive year at last week's highly prestigious British Travel Awards.
The awards, which were presented at Evolution in London's Battersea, are the most sought after accolades in the travel industry on account of being voted for exclusively by consumers.
On a successful evening, P&O Ferries also won the category for Best Ferry Booking Website.
The integrated ferry and logistics company, which is this year celebrating the 180th anniversary of the founding of P&O in 1837, prides itself on the mantra that the holiday begins as soon as you set foot on the ship.
Sarah Rosier, Head of Sales and Marketing at P&O Ferries, said: "The British Travel Awards are the only purely consumer-voted awards in the travel industry, so they provide a good measure of how the travelling public views a company. We are therefore delighted to have won Best Ferry Operator for a tenth consecutive year."
"We believe that the service on board our ships has to be great in every way and we are relentlessly working to better understand what our customers want so that we can exceed their expectations. This year we've introduced better dining, better food, a better shopping experience and better cabins which we hope will help us to be Britain's favourite ferry company for another ten years."
To ensure integrity and transparency, the British Travel Awards are verified by the leading accountancy firm Deloitte. The voting process is completely transparent with the winners determined solely by the number of votes they receive from the public.
P&O Ferries is a leading pan-European ferry and logistics company, sailing 27,000 times a year on eight major routes between Britain, France, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, Holland and Belgium.
