The Newmarket Group
Newmarket Holidays was founded in 1983. This ABTA and ATOL bonded company (ABTA Number V7812) is part of The Newmarket Group, one of the UK's largest independently owned specialist tour operators, and looks after the arrangements of tens of thousands of clients each year, to a wide range of destinations throughout the UK, across Europe and beyond. All Newmarket's departures originate in the UK.
During the three decades in which Newmarket has traded, the company has built an enviable reputation for tremendous value for money and the highest standards of customer care, establishing itself as the leading supplier of 'Reader Holidays' to the UK newspaper industry and a major provider of group travel arrangements for a large number of associations, societies and affiliated parties, to whom our Group Travel Specialists offer a dedicated service and additional travel organiser benefits.
The company has garnered a number of industry awards over the past decades, including victories in a range of categories at the prestigious British Travel Awards every year since 2011 - most recently a fifth successive win in 2017 for Best Large Escorted Tours Holiday Company. Newmarket also beat off specialist competition to win Best Large Holiday Company to Southern Asia for the second time, and retained Best Large Holiday Company to Italy which we first won back in 2012. There was also recognition for us in the Best Coach Holiday category and the Best Holiday Company to Canada, taking our total tally of BTA podium finishes to 26.
Other divisions within the Group are Sport Experiences, which brings a fresh, innovative approach to the world of organised sports travel, and Study Experiences, which offers travel arrangements and curriculum-led activities to schools and colleges. We are also honoured and privileged to partner the Royal British Legion to supply their Remembrance Travel programme of commemorative escorted tours to UK schools.
Newmarket employs nearly 200 people at our Wallington, Surrey, offices.
