What's your favourite airline, hotel or travel destination? With the 2018 ULTRAs – the Ultimate Luxury Travel Related Awards - you can have your say.

The winners - representing the very best of the travel industry - will be revealed at Dubai’s Burj Al Arab Jumeirah hotel on November 21, and published online at thenational.ae. What's more, every reader who fills out our survey in full has a chance to win a seven-night suite stay for two in one (or more) of the 80-plus hotels that make up the prestigious Ultratravel Collection, which reflect how luxury travel is changing for the better. While Michelin-starred dining and sumptuous hotel suites remain a much-loved mainstay of the industry, we know that our reader's expectations and horizons are ever-widening.

Today’s luxury travellers are also increasingly eager to venture beyond the beaten track (albeit with the region’s best guides in tow), and are always on the lookout for experiences that are exciting, exclusive and new.

Enthusiastic consumers await the tour companies which are prepared to innovate; while the hotels that truly capture the spirit of their locality and provide a sense of authenticity are establishing loyal audiences.

Ultratravel is committed to sharing their stories, but we’re keen to hear about your experiences too. Every year, we invite you, our readers, to vote for your favourites – whether operators or airlines, hotels or destinations – to provide the industry with a true barometer of who’s getting it right in the world of luxury travel.

Your votes will determine the results of the 2018 ULTRAs – so get voting now using the form below. Voting closes at midnight on October 13 2018.

The readers’ prize

Three readers can each win a seven-night b&b stay for two in a suite at any of the 80-plus hotels that make up the Ultratravel Collection. Stays can be split between two properties – so whether you opt for a city break and safari stay, or a beach holiday followed by a mountain retreat, you have the flexibility to craft a trip tailored precisely to your tastes.
