Richmond, Virginia, December 19, 2023 – Leading travel insurance and assistance company was named Best Insurance Provider during Travel Weekly’s 21st Annual Readers Choice Awards held at the American Museum of Natural History on December 13th. Travel Weekly, considered the most influential business publication in the travel trade industry, honors the best in travel as voted on by suppliers at its annual Readers’ Choice Awards. The 2023 awards program highlighted winners in 84 categories ranging from hotels and destinations to airlines and cruise lines.
“This year’s recognition by our peers and partners in the Travel Weekly Readers' Choice Awards is an honor, especially atop the Best Insurance Provider category for the eighth year in a row,” said Richard Aquino, vice president and head of sales at Allianz Partners USA. “As we continue to listen to our customers and evolve to meet their needs in the ever-changing travel space, we are proud to deliver industry-leading products and a high level of service that earned us this accolade.”
When the Best Insurance Provider category was added to the Readers’ Choice Awards program in 2016, Allianz Partners claimed the top award and has consistently won the category for eight years running. This year, the company was preferred over five other finalists in the Travel Insurance category by a majority vote of travel professionals and readers of Travel Weekly.
“To be recognized as the best by your peers is the highest honor you can receive,” said Arnie Weissmann, editor in chief of Travel Weekly. “Among our readers are travel advisors, industry marketing executives and the CEOs of the world’s largest travel companies – a group uniquely qualified to evaluate a very crowded field of potential nominees. Those who have reached the top and received recognition as winners of Travel Weekly Readers’ Choice Awards indicates that they have truly excelled and have met travelers’ needs with the highest of standards, consistently, during recent challenging times.”
These widely recognized, coveted awards are presented annually to the industry suppliers who led the way in product and service during the past year. The open ballot phase of the voting was conducted during the summer. Travel Weekly readers were invited to write in the names of any company they believe best exemplifies a particular category. The leading vote recipients were identified as finalists, and a second round of voting to determine the winners took place September through November 2023.
