The discerning readers of Condé Nast Traveller have voted for the best hotels, destinations, spas, airlines, airports, trains, cruise liners and tour operators in the Condé Nast Traveller’s Readers’ Choice Awards 2020.

The vote for the annual awards took place during lockdown, when the thought of going anywhere further than the local shops seemed like a dream.

However, Condé Nast Traveller, which joined up with its sister title in the USA to run the awards, said that despite this, readers ‘voted for the places that they love and would return to – along with their favourite means of getting there’.

It added: ‘While these awards are often cause for celebration, this year they serve as a reminder of the wider world out there. The Readers’ Choice Awards celebrates and supports the travel industry, shines a spotlight on new places, and revisits familiar ones with a fresh eye. All of them under one sky.’
