Forest Holidays are delighted to announce that they have been shortlisted in the “Best for Staying” category in the Travolution Awards. These awards are unique in recognising companies, brands and individuals who excel in the fields of online travel distribution, digital marketing and technology. Judged by a panel of proven business leaders, experts and entrepreneurs, the awards are the UK travel industry’s highest accolade for innovation and excellence online. Companies and brands compete in a select number of categories.
Forest Holidays who offer luxury woodland cabin stays on Forestry Commission land in 9 locations across the UK, are amongst a small group of finalists selected for “the website or mobile app that stands out from the crowd in its approach and excels in providing the customer with exactly what they want”. The judges will be looking for originality of design and features, the level of innovation measured against the wider digital community, evidence of success of the website within the market and the overall user experience. Forest Holidays’ website came to the judges’ attention amongst scores of entries and has attained over 3.3 million website visits in the last year and the newly-designed app has been downloaded over 20,000 times and achieved 4 star ratings from users.
Sales and Marketing Director Jill Grinsted said : “We are thrilled to have been chosen as a finalist in these awards. It’s great to achieve recognition and this is thanks to our hard working web team, who are focused on understanding customer needs, so both our website and mobile app really do deliver the best customer experience and make booking clear and easy.”
The awards will be presented on 29 November during a ceremony taking place at the Ballroom on the Southbank attended by the creme de la creme of the travel industry.
