HolidayCheck Award 2024

Criteria & determination of the winners

The evaluation period covers 12 months. All reviews that were published on HolidayCheck between 01.12.2022 and 30.11.2023 and are related to this travel period will be considered for the award.

The minimum criteria to qualify for the HolidayCheck Award 2024 were:


  • Since only the 10 most popular hotels in a region receive an Award, it is possible that accommodations meet the minimum criteria but, in the end, do not receive the Award. Deviations within the popularity ranking in regions where hotel density is very high can be marginal. 
  • We also check the long-term satisfaction of the hotel's guests. The overall recommendation rate on the website must also be at least 90% on the day of data analysis (01.12.2023).
  • Furthermore, hotels that meet the minimum criteria but have been found to have violated the HolidayCheck Code of Conduct are excluded from the award nomination.


Communication to the winners

The winners will receive all information about their award by e-mail. The respective award is only valid for the individual accommodation and does not apply to all hotels in the associated hotel chain or holiday apartment complexes.
