Wightlink Ferries received the Highly Commended Award at the inaugural Family Traveller Awards 2015. Head of Marketing Mark Persad received the trophy in the Best Family Ferry Operator category at the ceremony in London.

The Awards, organised by Family Traveller magazine and familytraveller.com, recognise the best family-friendly destinations and providers of holidays and travel in the UK and around the world. http://www.familytravellerawards.com/

“We were thrilled to be honoured by this popular magazine and website and delighted that so many of our customers voted for us in the online poll,” says Head of Marketing Mark Persad. “We are the leading cross-Solent ferry company and carry millions of holidaymakers to the Isle of Wight every year. It is the perfect place for a family holiday with beautiful beaches, amazing attractions to visit and accommodation to suit all budgets. Wightlink operates three great routes to help family travellers start their holiday.”

Visit Isle of Wight (VIOW) also won a Highly Commended Award in the Best Domestic Destination category. “The Isle of Wight is just two hours away from London but it’s another world with so much for families to enjoy. This award is recognition for everyone on the Island who works so hard to look after our holidaymakers,” says VIOW Chief Executive David Thornton.

Andrew Dent, Publisher of Family Traveller magazine, adds: “We are delighted with the travel industry’s response to our first ever Family Traveller Awards, and congratulate Wightlink Ferries on winning the Highly Commended Award.”

Wightlink has been recently recognised in several competitions. It was named the top ferry company in the country for using social media in the Social Travel Britain Awards 2015. Its #wightlive campaign, run in collaboration with Visit Isle of Wight, promoted Island events and boosting tourism by encouraging customers to share photographs online.

Wightlink also took the runner-up prize in the Best Sea Crossing Operator for Groups category in the 2014 Group Travel Awards organised by Group Travel Organiser magazine.
