Travvy Awards 2022

So what’s the big deal about Travvys?

The Travvy Awards are the only travel awards selected by travel advisors who, according to Eric Bowman, Executive Editor of TravelPulse, are “the true travel influencers.”

Each award category is voted on by hundreds of travel advisors who often know the brands and travel companies best, recognizing the incredible impact they have on the travel industry. Without consultants, the industry would not be the same.

The prizes are also pretty significant prizes. Representatives from hotel and resort brands, destinations, tour operators, cruise lines and more gather during the gala and ceremony to receive the awards they have received. This year’s event was held at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina in South Florida on November 3rd.

How Travvys are awarded

Travel advisors vote for their favorite travel brands and companies, curated first by our dedicated editorial team, in many different categories, including airlines, cruise lines, hotels and resorts, and more.

Awards are staggered to first, second and third place for each category, which can range from best resorts for destination weddings to best adventure destinations, for example. As in the Olympics, first place is called “gold”, second place is “silver”, and third place is “bronze”.
