LAS VEGAS, Aug. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For the 11th consecutive year, Travelex Insurance Services graciously accepted Virtuoso’s ‘Best Service Partner’ award, an indicator of the luxury travel industry’s best travel insurance provider. The award was presented during the 31st annual Virtuoso Travel Week at the Bellagio Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. The theme of this year’s event was, ‘What’s on your wanderlist?’ The honor is especially noteworthy as only a small fraction of the travel network’s more than 1,800 partners was recognized at the event.
“Travelex Insurance Services’ notable accomplishments, including their constant innovation, exceptional knowledge and stellar service, have helped shape Virtuoso into the industry leader that it is,” Albert Herrera, senior vice president, Global Product Partnerships at Virtuoso said. “Travelex values the travel advisor channel and has forged strong and deep relationships with Virtuoso members, resulting in a unique human connection that bolsters our reputation and ultimately elevates the traveler experience.”
“Receiving the ‘Best Service Partner’ award for 11 straight years is a humbling experience that speaks to the importance of strong relationships and developing the human connection,” President of Travelex Insurance Services Michael J. Ambrose said. “Just as Virtuoso advisors expect the best for their clients, Travelex strives to be the best in the eyes of our customers as they travel and explore the world safely. We are grateful to our travel industry partners who have helped us earn this honor for over a decade now.”
