Cool Camping wins prestigious British Travel Award for second consecutive year

Cool Camping has been announced as the winner of Best Camping & Mobile Holiday Company in the prestigious 2020 British Travel Awards, taking home the gong for the second year in a row.

Cool Camping has been announced as the winner of Best Camping & Mobile Holiday Company in the prestigious 2020 British Travel Awards, taking home the gong for the second year in a row.

Usually a live event, this year’s Awards were announced by TV presenter Alex Jones, at a virtual ceremony, broadcast live from London on 14th December.

It comes after a turbulent year in the camping industry, with coronavirus cancelling holiday plans over the Easter weekend and May Bank Holidays, before a summer staycation boom took over as holidaymakers stayed local, seeking outdoor stays where they could practice social distancing.

At Cool Camping basecamp we’ve worked hard to continue providing the same trusted service throughout. From supporting independent businesses after a difficult spring, to guaranteeing flexible bookings with our Coronavirus Booking Guarantee, we’ve strived to provide not only the best camping experiences but the best online booking experience too.

“We’re ecstatic to have won the category of Best Camping Company and I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who voted for us,” Cool Camping founder Jonathan Knight commented after the announcement of the award. “2020 has been a challenging year for the entire travel industry but we’re pleased to have been able to support so many small domestic businesses during a busy summer of UK camping as well as during a tough spring and autumn time. Thank you to everyone who voted for us and to everyone who has booked their holiday with Cool Camping this year.
“We love camping. It’s had something of a renaissance in 2020 and we’re thrilled to see so many new people getting out there and experiencing what it’s all about. We’ve discovered even more campsites this year to add to our carefully curated collection and we can’t wait to get out there again in 2021.”

British Travel Awards’ chief executive Lorraine Barnes Burton said: “Cool Camping is to be congratulated on winning Best Camping and Mobile Holiday Company in this most difficult year for the travel industry.

“The winners of the British Travel Awards are decided by votes from the travelling public and despite many people being unable to take a holiday this year some did manage to, before and between lockdowns. We also asked voters to show their support for companies they had a good experience with, paying attention to customer service – recognising companies who had helped them with re-bookings, refunds and cancellations. The British Travel Awards is still the largest consumer voted awards in the UK and congratulations to all the worthy winners. We’re looking ahead and forward, all being well, to travelling again soon.”
