Accommodation-only specialist Stuba has unveiled the 20 agents who have won hotel stays on behalf of health workers.

Stuba launched the ‘Real Superheroes’ competition in partnership with Travel Weekly in April, with agents encouraged to nominate frontline workers and explain why they should win a hotel stay up to the value of £300 in the UK or overseas.

Speaking at the launch, Stuba chief operating officer Matt Stuart said: “We know that not all superheroes wear capes, which is why we teamed up with Travel Weekly on this competition to allow agents to thank the frontline healthcare workers putting their lives on the line for the wider public.

“At Stuba, we want to offer our sincere gratitude to the real superheroes of our time and we hope all our winners enjoy their hotel stays.”
