Marie Claire has won the Consumer Travel Section of the Year Award at the British Travel Press Awards 2012
Marie Claire’s outstanding travel coverage has won the prized Consumer Travel Section of the Year Award at the British Travel Press Awards 2012.
Travel editor Nigel Tisdall was presented with a starry trophy at a sparkling evening held at the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) headquarters in Portland Place, London on 21 November 2012.
Judged by a panel of senior travel editors and industry executives, the award recognises Marie Claire’s devotion to high quality travel stories and was given for three features in the magazine published over the last year. These covered an epic train ride from New York to New Orleans, an uplifting tale of a journey through Vietnam with a broken heart, and a wild winter adventure to Spitsbergen in Arctic Norway.
In addition, our richly illustrated travel pages also feature On Location, a monthly report from the destinations that inspire our globetrotting fashion and beauty teams, and a Travel Insider page with news reports and advice to help you make the most of your precious holiday time.
Online, our specially commissioned travel features include Easy Escapes, a concise guide to perfect short breaks in Europe and beyond, and Great British Boltholes, which seeks out snug and affordable places to stay around the UK.
