November 14. The travel industry continues to prove its resiliency in the face of a global pandemic and it took another step forward on Wednesday with the 2021 edition of the Travvy Awards.
The seventh annual Travvy Awards took place on November 11 at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Florida and was hosted by Northstar Travel Group.
Receiving one of the Travvy statuettes is considered a top honor in the travel industry, and over 270 awards were handed out at this year’s ceremony.
For the sixth consecutive year, Allianz Global Assistance has taken home the Gold Travvy award in 2021 for Overall Best Travel Insurance Provider, as well as the Gold award for Best Customer Service among travel insurance providers.
This year’s Executive of the Year award went to Michelle Fee, who spoke to the audience with a message around the importance of never giving up. Those in attendance know from experience over the last year that hard work and never giving up is the key to success.
Royal Caribbean Group once again dominated the cruise sector, being honored as a 2021 Travvy winner in a plethora of coveted categories, including receiving recognition for its unparalleled at-sea entertainment and timely travel advisor support during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Enterprise Holdings also received top honors at this year’s award ceremony by walking away with nine total Travvy Awards, once again cementing the rental car company’s place as one of the biggest names in the travel industry.
The Travvy Awards have become such an important part of the industry thanks in part to the winners being selected by travel advisors and agents who have direct knowledge about each category, company and organization nominated. Over 90,000 votes were cast by advisors, which led to some category results being with an insignificant difference of each other. In these instances, ties were awarded to the suppliers.
