BRITTANY Ferries Holidays has been named Best Tour Operator to France at the British Travel Awards for the second year running.

The accolade was announced at an awards dinner held in London, attended by more than 1,000 travel industry people.

The firm has its base in Portsmouth, and also operates from Poole and Plymouth to Brittany and Normandy, or to Bilbao and Santander in Spain.

‘We’re thrilled to win Best Tour Operator to France particularly because it’s the British public who cast the votes, and also because competition in the sector is so strong,’ said Christiane Barker, Brittany Ferries’ General Manager, Holidays.
