Our Travel Awards
We are incredibly proud to have accepted a number of readers’ travel awards in 2012 including Condé Nast Traveller, The Guardian & Observer and British Travel Awards.
Against strong competition our personal service and attention to detail has earned us recognition and we give our heartfelt thanks to everyone who voted for us. We have worked hard to develop a loyal following and it is not something we take for granted – we know we have to continue to earn your loyalty by making sure you get the most out of your holiday.
Condé Nast Traveller – The Readers’ Travel Awards 2012
We are pleased to have been included in Condé Nast Traveller’s coveted ‘The World’s Top 100’ list – a list which pays tribute to top travel companies, destinations, spas, hotels and airlines – worldwide!
The magazine’s readers also voted us third in the ‘Favourite Villa Company’ category in their Readers Travel Awards and highest for 'value for money'.
The Guardian & Observer Travel Awards 2012
Winner - Best Online Booking Service
The Guardian & Observer Travel Awards are often considered the Oscars of the travel industry so we were thrilled to be in the top spot for the ‘Best Online Booking Service’ category and achieved second place in the ‘Best Small Tour Operator’ category.
For our online booking service, the organisers commented: “Simpsontravel.com takes the top spot, the achievement all the more impressive considering the company did not appear at all in the 2011 rankings. Its site is a simple, classy showcase for the gorgeous villas, apartments and hotels on its books. Useful sections on summer offers, autumn availability, family summer sun and more make the search as simple as possible for readers, while the Simpson Secrets tab reveals exactly the sort of off-the-beaten track properties packed with character that Guardian and Observer readers love.”
