The most prestigious awards in the UK travel industry calendar, recognising the best brands and individuals as voted by the travel trade


he Travel Weekly Globe Travel Awards are widely acknowledged as the pinnacle of the UK travel industry, honouring companies and individuals in a range of sectors.

Established in 1976, the awards take place in front of more than 1,200 guests at the Grosvenor House hotel on London’s Park Lane every January and attract the cream of the UK and international travel industry.

In addition to awards recognising best-in-class brands in a range of categories, special awards recognise the industry’s outstanding achievers, innovators and unsung heroes.

The glittering gala ceremony is attended by the UK travel industry’s most senior figures, and since 2019 has been held in association with consumer media partner Hearst UK, the publisher of 25 brands including Esquire, ELLE, Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan and Good Housekeeping.

In 2021, the Globe Awards were replaced with a special one-off virtual evening of celebration for the travel trade, the Globe Travel Rewards, which was backed by Hearst and more than 30 leading travel suppliers.

The Globes are renowned for featuring some of the biggest names in entertainment, with previous hosts including James Corden, Michael McIntyre, David Walliams, Dame Edna Everage and, most recently, Oscar nominee Richard E. Grant.
