Newport, Rhode Island – travAlliancemedia announced the winners of its Travvy Award this week, recognizing travel companies and travel agencies that meet the highest standards of excellence in the industry. WIMCO Villas earned the top prize in the villa rental category, based on the unparalled quality of WIMCO’s property selection, product knowledge and concierge services.
travAlliancemedia owns several brands related to the travel industry, including print and digital magazines catered to those with interest in luxury travel, as well as several other software systems that travel agents frequently employ. Their Travvy awards reflect the votes of nearly 40,000 independent travel professionals; this contingent represents the largest database of the nation’s foremost leisure-selling, independent travel agents in the country. The selections by agents constitute the companies and destinations that these professionals believe provide the best overall service to their clients.
“It is an honor for WIMCO to be recognized as a leader in the vacation rental and concierge travel services industry”, said WIMCO president Stiles Bennet. “We offer an integrated hospitality experience to our clients, built on more than thirty years of experience in crafting memorable vacations in the Caribbean and Europe. Our collection of private villas has steadily increased over time, but we pride ourselves on that one-on-one interaction with clients, getting to know their needs and wishes, and then making sure each part of their vacation is tailored to their specifications – from booking flights to meeting them at the airport to setting up exclusive experiences – like an in-villa yoga session or a private vineyard tour. ”
