With the current uncertainty in the travel industry, we are committed to continuing to create initiatives that help our local partners and their businesses. That’s why we have decided to proceed with the launch of the 3rd edition of the GetYourGuide Awards. We looked far and wide to celebrate the most incredible local experiences in the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Germany. Additionally, we’ve decided to make this Awards edition special by launching our new Best-in-Class Badges. These badges reward best-in class experiences worldwide in several categories. 

The 2020 GetYourGuide Awards 

This year, the Awards recognize the most incredible local travel experiences with 3 different categories: 

  • Best tours for locals
  • Best family-friendly experiences
  • Incredible tour guides

We chose the selected products according to the following criteria: good reviews, customer excellence, differentiation, and contribution to the local community. After evaluating thousands of tours and activities from Germany, the UK, and Ireland, we’ve selected some absolute gems. 

To decide which experiences win, we put it in the hands of the local travel community from the UK, Ireland, and Germany. Voting is in progress now until August 29, 2020 to crown the Top 5 from each category as winners of 2020 GetYourGuide Awards.

The winners will be announced mid-September 2020.

The Best-in-Class Badges 

We decided to launch the 1st edition of the Best-in-Class Badges to show our support for our local partners’ initiatives around the world. 

The badges are a simple way to show customers the great experiences local partners have on their own websites. This initiative aims to help our local partners gain customer trust, as well as create more brand awareness during these uncertain times. 

The Best-in-Class Badges rewards experiences worldwide in the following 8 different categories: 

  • Recommended experience
  • Recommended walking tour 
  • Recommended boat tour 
  • Recommended museum 
  • Recommended attraction 
  • Recommended outdoor activity 
  • Recommended day trip 
  • Recommended family-friendly activity

We selected the nominated activities according to the following criteria: products with more than 50 reviews and a star rating above 4.5 on GetYourGuide.

Are you a GetYourGuide local partner who has been selected?  If your product has been selected, you should have received an email from us with more information on how to download your badge. Find and download your badge for your category here. Make sure to celebrate your selection and share it with your network. 

We trust this campaign is more important than ever to support our community. If you weren’t selected this year, use the above criteria as a guide to make sure you’re eligible for a Best-in-Class Badge next year.
