Each year since 2005, the coach tourism community turn their attention to the British Coach Tourism Awards (also known as the BCTAs). Intrigue and anticipation builds to a climax at the glamorous Awards ceremony, where 19 deserving winners are crowned the very best in the business.

The only national awards scheme dedicated to coach tourism, the BCTAs highlight examples of best practice in coach touring and raise awareness of those who go the extra mile.
Meticulously judged by a panel of industry experts and bought to you by the team behind the British Tourism & Travel Show, the BCTAs are the sectors most sought after accolade.

The first purpose is to recognise and reward those businesses that make life as easy as possible for coach group organisers – attractions, destinations, hotels, wholesalers and other suppliers that contribute to the UK’s thriving group tourism sector by being as “coach-friendly” as possible.

The second strand to the BCTAs is the all-important operator awards.
From having a stunning holiday brochure to efficiently running a high-quality fleet, the BCTAs reward coach tour operators that showcase to the rest of the world just how great coach holidays can be!

Timed to coincide with the essential domestic tourism exhibition, The British Tourism & Travel Show at the NEC, 20 – 21 March 2019 – the Awards will be a spectacular night celebrating the very best of coach tourism – with show-stopping entertainment, excellent three-course dining, unrivalled networking opportunities, and of course, presentation of the highly coveted Awards!

  • The whole process of entering makes us sit down and consider our plans and progress. The process brings us into contact with the best names in the industry. We get new ideas each year for free and best of all, we have a wonderful evening together.
