Andavo Recognized for Outstanding Website and Promo Video among Travel Agencies

SALT LAKE CITY, UT (September 11, 2018) – Andavo Travel announced today that its website (andavotravel.com) has been honored with a 2018 Travel Weekly Magellan Gold Award in the Travel Agent/Agency category. Additionally, its “Welcome to Andavo” promotional video won a 2018 Travel Weekly Magellan Silver Award in the Travel Agent/Agency category. 

The website touts the benefits of using Andavo’s host agency services to luxury travel advisors across the country. The site was a complete redesign from the previous version and went live in May 2018. The website features the “Welcome to Andavo” promotional video on its home page. 

The Travel Weekly Magellan Awards honor the best in travel and salute the outstanding travel professionals behind it all. The Magellan awards honor a broad range of travel industry segments including Hotels and Resorts, Travel Destinations, Cruise Lines, Online Travel Services, Airlines and Airports, Travel Agents and Agencies, Tour Operators and Car Rental Companies.

“Magellan winners are those in the industry who communicate travel’s promise, through words, images and design, in ways that ring true and stand out,” said Arnie Weissmann, editor-in-chief of Travel Weekly. “They create the environments and craft the messages that spark travelers’ imaginations.”

“The Magellan Awards are judged and overseen by a one-of-a-kind panel of top travel professionals representing the best names and most accomplished leaders from the industry,” says Mike Cameron, CEO of Andavo Travel. “We feel very honored to have been selected based upon their high standards.” In determining winners, entries do not compete with one another, instead they are judged against a standard of excellence based on the long experience of Travel Weekly. To uphold this high standard of excellence, a category may have multiple winners, or may have no winners at all.

Andavo will be recognized in the October 29, 2018 issue of Travel Weekly that will feature a special section dedicated to this year's winners. For a complete list of the silver and gold winners, please visit www.travelweeklyawards.com/winners/.
