For the third successive year, Buntingford based Camping Travel Store celebrates winning prestigious national camping awards in the 2018 Tent Owners Satisfaction Survey presented by The Camping & Caravanning Club.
The awards, presented by Julia Bradbury at a star-studded industry dinner at The Midland Hotel in Manchester on Thursday 18th January 2018 were based on the results of a survey entirely from the input of thousands of campers who have purchased and used a camping unit since January 2014.
Camping Travel Store was awarded Best Inflatable Tube Tent and Best Premium Tent in this year’s awards, adding to their success from 2017 where they won Best Life-Time Tent and Best Premium Tent, together with Best Tent over £300 in 2016 for their Dutch Karsten Inflatable Tent Range.
League tables for each unit type were drawn up in each category, with brands earning the highest satisfaction ratings according to respondents to the survey crowned as winners.
Camping Travel Store retained their 99% Customer Satisfaction Rating from the previous year, proving that their range of ‘Once revolutionary inflatable tents is still the best’.
Camping Travel Store has been representing the Dutch tent manufacturer for the past 8 years in the UK, showing their inflatable and poled tents at touring displays around the UK. Karsten Tents have been manufactured since 1981 using a unique high-pressure inflation system and are made from sustainably produced 100% Cotton Canvas. They have a modular approach to their design, meaning that you can take what you need whether having a weekend camp or a fortnight in France.
With the 2018 camping season fast approaching, Karsten is launching their new Glamping Tent suitable for seasonal pitching on campsites and a luxury staycation. Campsites already using their glamping tents include the John Lewis Partnership among others.
Robert Louden MBE, The Camping and Caravanning Club’s Director General, said:
“The findings of the Owner Satisfaction Surveys will help manufacturers to improve their products and customers to shop smarter. Trends change over time, but campers always want to share feedback on their units. The awards are based on the most valuable data out there – feedback from real customers who have used their units in all kinds of weather”.
