For the second consecutive year, Trazee Travel is honoring the winners of The Trazees, our annual awards celebration of the best and the brightest in the world of travel.

 

Travelers aged 18–35 are a varied group, boasting travel interests from study abroad to honeymoons. One thing they all have in common is a discerning eye and a keen interest in seeing, experiencing and learning about the world. Along the way, destinations, airlines, hotels and other travel providers stand out, providing unbelievable service, a memorable experience, a unique amenity or any number of stellar highlights.

 

To honor those storied travel companies, trazeetravel.com first introduced The Trazees in 2015. Nominations for this year’s The Trazees were collected from our intrepid group of contributors, as well as via an online ballot completed by readers. The nominations were compiled and a panel of Trazee and FX Express Publications, Inc. (our parent company) management selected the final winners.

 

Trazeetravel.com is proud to present The Trazees 2016. Congratulations to the following trendsetters!
