AITO Holiday Reviews

Why travellers’ reviews matter?

At AITO, both we and our members take quality standards very seriously. Our tour operators offer an exciting mix of specialist trips to all points across the globe; they adhere to our quality charter and strive for nothing short of an exceptional experience for their travellers.

Reviews from AITO travellers are at the heart of our association; the impartial feedback provided by our community ensure that our members are adhering to our quality standards. We hope that our recent bronze award for ‘best review/ratings website’ from the British Travel Awards 2015, shows just how seriously we are taking things.

Offering your valuable feedback on our site is straight forward - you simply need to have travelled with one of our members! AITO travellers typically go beyond the minimum requirement for feedback, as they leave a review on their tour operators’ website and then also share their thoughts on aito.com.

This invaluable feedback is much more than a star rating; our travellers often offer tips, ideas, anecdotes and suggestions for future trip takers, making it a great place to source holiday inspiration. In addition, our two tiered reviews system allows past travellers to rate both their holiday and the tour operator individually.

Why the AITO Review Competition?

Every year as a thank you to our AITO travellers, we offer the opportunity to win £2000 towards their next AITO holiday, simply for reviewing their experience! Could you be our next winner?

We love that AITO travellers help us maintain our high standards across all our members and give praise where it is due, so we’ve made it really easy for you.

All you have to do is travel on an AITO member’s holiday, then complete a review on aito.com and you will be automatically entered! Any reviews entered before midnight 30 June 2017 will be in with the chance of winning this year’s prize. Please see below for our T&Cs.

Though the competition dates back years, 2017 marks the third time we have offered this prize via the new aito.com website. If you are a past winner and want to share photos from your experience simply email marketing@aito.com or @ us on Twitter/Instagram!

Where do I go to leave my review?

If you are a traveller looking for the reviews on a specific AITO member, simply type their name into the ‘companies’ filter box on our homepage. If you’ve recently travelled with a member and want to leave a review, you’ll find the ‘review your holiday’ box on the homepage too (look on the right hand side).
