WIMCO Villas Earns Travel Weekly’s Magellan Award for Excellence in Vacation Rentals and Concierge Travel Services

Newport, Rhode Island – Travel Weekly unveiled its Magellan Award winners this week, casting a spotlight on the best of class in the travel industry. WIMCO Villas earned the top prize in the vacation rental category for its commitment to excellence in property selection, product knowledge and end to end concierge services.

The winners of Travel Weekly’s Magellan Award are chosen by a panel of travel industry professionals including those involved with travel review site TripAdvisor, Travel & Leisure magazine and the CBS Early Show. Individual travel companies do not compete with one another, instead they are judged against a 100 point performance scale. To uphold a high standard of excellence, a category may have multiple winners, or may have no winners at all.

“It is an honor for WIMCO Villas 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. While our collection of private villas for rent by the week has steadily increased over time, our focus on providing excellent service has stayed constant, from consulting with the client about the villa that best fits their desires, to booking flights, greeting them in the destination, and setting-up reservations and activities during their vacation.”
