New York New York , Jan 26, 2018– TravAlliancemedia announced the winners of its annual Travvy Award this week, recognizing travel companies that meet the highest standards of excellence in the industry. WIMCO Villas earned a TRAVVY for excellence in vacation rentals with concierge services.
“It is an honor for WIMCO to be recognized as a leader in the full-service vacation rental industry”, said WIMCO president Stiles Bennet. “It’s evidence that travel agents and their clients value the integrated hospitality experience WIMCO delivers. We pride ourselves on investing in one-on-one interaction with travel agents and their clients, getting to know their needs and wishes, finding the destination and then the villa that best meets those needs, 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, private chef, or a day rip boat charter to a private island .”
WIMCO received additional accolades from travel agents and their clients recently for its management of villa reservations on those Caribbean islands impacted by the hurricanes of September 2017, and its leadership role in providing detailed up-to-the minute reports on the status of the tourism infrastructure, and the reopening dates of each villa on those islands.
The annual Travvy Awards—known as the Academy Awards of the travel industry—were held Wednesday, January 24, 2018 at Gotham Hall in New York City to recognize the highest standards of excellence in the travel industry by honoring travel companies, travel products, travel agencies, and destinations for their outstanding achievement. This year, over 100,000 votes—the largest voting block of travel agents in history—were cast to determine the 2018 Travvy Awards winners.
