ABTA awarded Superbrand status

ABTA has been voted a Business Superbrand for the 11th year running – and for the first time this year, has been voted a Consumer Superbrand. 

The annual Superbrands listing of the UK's strongest brands judges the performance of brands with in the business and consumer markets. Superbrands identifies and pays tribute to exceptional brands by recognising, rewarding and reinforcing leading brands from all over the world.

ABTA is one of UK’s most recognised travel brands, almost three quarters (73%) of people regard ABTA Membership as essential or important when booking a holiday. In the business travel market, that percentage is higher with 82% of managers with decision-making responsibility say membership with ABTA is important when selecting a travel management company.

Both the Business and Consumer Superbrands listings were judged by a Council of senior marketing experts, 2,500 individual business professionals from across the UK and 2,500 members of the British public. In both surveys, ABTA did not apply or pay to be considered.

Achieving a Superbrand status in both business and consumer markets sends a powerful message. Customers who book with an ABTA Member can feel reassured that they are booking with a prestigious travel company, employees can feel proud to work with them and business stakeholders can trust and rely on the organisation to do well.
