A strong dollar and added capacity and competition in the airline industry are making 2019 the year to check off a bucket list destination. Meanwhile, weak economies and uncertainty (Brexit) in the euro zone and other parts of the world have led to lower travel demand and a greater urgency to woo American travelers. The upside for travelers is that the world is on sale.

This means deals are everywhere, you just need to know where you’ll get the biggest bang for your travel buck. That starts with finding the best travel suppliers and destinations, as ranked by the 2019 Travvy Awards, the Oscars of the Travel Industry. The Travvy Award winners will be announced in NYC on the night of January 23rd and Americans will find out who won in this exclusive satellite event.

Travel expert and Travvy Awards host Mark Murphy will talk about who won what at the Travvys and how viewers/listeners can use this information to book the vacation of a lifetime in 2019. Mark highlights winning destinations for all budgets and give the scoop on winning airlines, cruise lines, hotels, rental car companies and more.
