We’ve got some exciting news for you all! This year we were nominated for ‘Best Youth Travel Agent’ at the World Youth and Student Travel Conference (WYSTC). This is a top worldwide event for global leaders and stakeholders in the youth and student travel industry. Aside from hosting a booth and holding a networking event to bring together key players in the youth travel industry, our team got to hear and learn from some of the biggest influencers in student travel.
Every year during the conference, the WYSE Travel Confederation awards Global Youth Travel Awards (GYTA) to organisations who have contributed in new and outstanding ways to the youth and educational travel industry.
And after a long and tiring week for several of our team members in Edinburgh, we found out we’d won and had been awarded “Best Youth Travel Agent” for the third time! This award goes to an organisation that provides innovative and affordable travel services to students and young travellers and provides excellent customer service for student travellers.
Speaking off the win, Dan Baker, our UK General Manager at the time of the win, said, “It’s an incredible feeling to be recognised by the student and youth market for our commitment to industry. Here at StudentUniverse we fundamentally believe that travel is essential to a modern education and are thrilled to know our products and services are helping many young people to see the world. We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who voted for us and to the GYTAs for hosting such a wonderful event to celebrate the entire industry.”
Thanks again for everyone who voted for us!
