Frederick, MD., January 24, 2019 — Carey International, Inc., the leading provider of innovative chauffeured service solutions, customer-centric travel technology, and ground transportation logistics management announced, today, that it has earned the prestigious Gold statuette at the Travvy Awards in all three chauffeured services categories for which it was nominated.
Until now, the Travvy Awards presented only the “Best Chauffeured Service—Overall” prize in recognition of a superior ground transportation industry services provider. In 2019, the Travvy Awards added two new categories to its “Chauffeured Services” category: “Best Chauffeured Service—Domestic” and “Best Chauffeured Service—International”.
While 2019 marked the third time Carey International won gold for “Best Chauffeured Service—Overall” it added to its list of accolades by claiming all three esteemed “Chauffeured Services” Travvy Awards.
“To receive the top prize in all three chauffeured services categories is a privilege, but the real honor is to be named a Travvy Awards winner three times over by those who know this industry best: travel advisors and their discerning clientele,” said Sandy Miller, Chief Executive Officer for Carey International. “These awards are a testament to the commitment of Carey International to provide uncompromising standards of safety and reliability, including the delivery of an unmatched 99.9% global safety record across the industry’s only Global Franchise Network, in more than 1,000 cities worldwide.”
Numerous travel industry suppliers, destinations and individuals from around the world submit their nominations to the Travvy Awards for annual consideration; while only a select few are recognized as a leader and innovator in their respective field. In 2019, more than 100,000 votes—the largest voting block of advisors in history—were cast to determine the 2019 Travvy Award winners.
The annual Travvy Awards gala—regarded by many as the Academy Awards of the travel industry—commenced on Wednesday, January 23, 2019 at Gotham Hall in New York City.
