Canvas Holidays nominated for 2016 British Travel Awards

Fife headquartered package camping holiday specialist, Canvas Holidays, has been nominated for four awards in the prestigious 2016 British Travel Awards (BTAs).

The company, which was founded 51 years ago by Scot, Jim Cuthbert and now has over 60 employees at its HQ in Dunfermline, is hoping to repeat its successes of 2015, when it took home four gongs at the awards, widely referred to as the ‘travel industry Oscars’. 

The winners will be determined by the public, who have until 30 September to cast their votes, with the successful companies announced at the BTA Gala Awards Dinner, being held in London on 23 November 2016.

Marketing and eBusiness Director, Margaret Robertson, said: “The team here at Canvas are thrilled to be nominated again and I for one am very proud of them. These awards attract the top travel companies from across the UK, so to be nominated means we are doing something right. We have sent almost 11,000 families on holiday this year already and now our fate is in their hands – we’re looking forward to seeing what the night brings in November.”

British Travel Awards’ chief executive Lorraine Barnes Burton said: “This year there are nearly seven hundred nominations listed against 83 Award categories and competition to win a British Travel Awards will be fierce. In 2015 more than a million votes were cast by the consumer to decide the winners, making the BTAs easily the largest awards programme in the UK. Voting in the 2016 Awards is now open and nominated companies have until 30th September to lobby their happy customers for votes – good luck to Canvas Holidays.”
