Now in its fifth year, the Family Traveller Awards recognises the industry’s most innovative brands and products within the family travel space. The awards return this year with a fresh format and a headline sponsor, Ayla, the newest and most exciting destination in Jordan.

The 2019 awards are evolving and instead of focusing on traditional categories such as best destination and best kids club, Family Traveller is asking the industry and its readers to nominate initiatives which go above and beyond for families. This could be an exciting kids’ sports academy at a resort, an incredible family suite on a cruise ship, a new style of ski school or a hotel that encourages children to look after the environment. It doesn’t matter how big or small the initiative or organisation, how luxury or affordable, how exotic or local, the key criteria is the ability to delight, entertain and inspire families on holidays or days out.

Jane Anderson, editor, Family Traveller said, "I’m looking forward to seeing all the coolest, most thoughtful innovations out there being nominated this year."

For the first time ever, children will be invited to join the judging panel since they are at the very heart of family travel and experiences.

Nominations are now open!
