Honoring the best of the travel industry, Belize is named an Industry Leader in the third annual TripSavvy Editors’ Choice Award! Introducing new criteria, winners are businesses like large companies and hometown heroes; those doing the most good for customers and communities during the global pandemic, while fighting for equity and equality. Nonetheless, over 50 editors and writers across the globe combed through a year’s worth of ratings, reviews, and data; judging post-pandemic, this year’s winners reflect those that overwhelmingly met the challenges of COVID-19. After all, these meaningful, result-driven solutions—including Belize’s robust ‘Gold Standard’ Travel Protocols—put the country on the map as an industry leader.
“This coveted industry leader award would have not been possible without your support and commitment to Gold; we applaud you [our stakeholders].”
Adaptability, innovation, and commitment to next-level customer service were all used by TripSavvy to select this year’s winners. Overall, 70 honorees were divided into four categories: Industry Leaders, Innovators, Community Leaders, and Quick Responders. Winners include businesses as big as JetBlue, which vowed to be the first airline to offset its carbon emissions, to our very own Belize Tourism Board. Consequently, Belize is hailed to have one of the most restrictive visitor safety measures in the Caribbean, which TripSavvy calls “one to emulate” with this award.
