The 2020 LLM Readers’ Travel Awards, in partnership with Blue Bay Travel, will recognise and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the luxury travel and tourism industry. As hard hit as it has been this year, now is the time, more than ever, to lend support to the industry and this is why we are asking our readers to have their say.

Our team of experts have, for the third year running, worked hard in order to identify everything from the very best hotels, airlines and tour operators through to highlighting the most sought-after destinations.

Now it is over to our discerning readers to vote for their favourites from the impressive selection of finalists below. And we’re offering one very lucky voter the chance to win a five-night night stay at the luxurious Zafiro Palace Alcudia – a five-star hotel in Mallorca’s authentic northern region. More information on this fantastic prize can be read here.

The deadline for voting is 11.59pm on 31/10/2020.
