Travel + Leisure announced yesterday readers voted luxury travel company, Absolute Travel, to their highly-competitive World’s Best Tour Operator Award list. This is a testament to Absolute Travel’s deep destination knowledge, creativity and unsurpassed client service.
“Our greatest asset is our team,” said Absolute Travel president and founder Ken Fish. “We create the extraordinary for our clients, and it feels fantastic to be revered worldwide as one of the best at what we do. The award is particularly gratifying knowing it was driven by our clients. My team and I are celebrating just like we did after being named Travel + Leisure #1 World’s Best in 2013!”
The experiential travel company, a pioneer of private custom trips since 1989, redefines the meaning of travel planning. “When it comes to soup-to-nuts travel arrangements, these companies have the best guides, the best itineraries, and the best value,” notes Travel + Leisure of the revered Top 10 World’s Best Tour Operators. How Absolute Travel differentiates itself amongst the competition:
THOUGHTFUL, CREATIVE TRIP PLANNING: Travelers receive personalized one-on-one guidance from their travel experts who blend firsthand destination knowledge and creative experiences tailored to the traveler’s passions, interests, and energy level to create a custom trip. They put travelers where they want to be: in the center of rare wildlife and cultural encounters, alongside renowned conservationist guides, and in front of views few will ever see. It’s these hard-to-arrange experiences that many travelers are looking for, but that take insider connections to arrange.
TRAVEL EXPERTS WITH UNBIASED RECOMMENDATIONS: Absolute Travel’s luxury travel planners understand travelers’ desires to plan a trip with a trusted expert who feels like a clued-in friend. Regarded in the industry for their straightforward recommendations, Absolute Travel’s unbiased recommendations are valued and appreciated during the trip planning process.
FRESH, OF-THE-MINUTE DESTINATION KNOWLEDGE: The Absolute Travel team vets the unique experiences, discovers the secret gems, and visits the local spots that make a place truly special, then use this intelligence to create travel itineraries filled with experiences their clients can’t find elsewhere. The team’s skills go beyond recommending trending hotels and expert guides. They transform logistically tricky itineraries into seamless ones, and recommend lesser-known routes and touring many have never heard of to create trip itineraries unavailable elsewhere.
PEACE OF MIND & SUPPORT: In addition to the peace of mind provided by their travel experts during the planning process, their robust, in-house operations team works behind-the-scenes to help ensure a worry-free trip.
PROUD COMMITMENT TO CONSERVATION & SUSTAINABILITY: Absolute Travel’s commitment to conservation and sustainability has become a cornerstone of the company. The team takes great pride bridging travelers and the world’s wild places to help protect them.
The Travel + Leisure World’s Best award was officially announced on July 6th, and will be featured in the August issue of Travel + Leisure.
Absolute Travel’s team of trusted, passionate travel specialists create private journeys to Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America, Antarctica, North America, the Middle East and the South Pacific. Their firsthand knowledge, creativity and personal connections allow them to design trips filled with insider experiences, unsurpassed service, and on-the-ground spontaneity travelers can’t find elsewhere. In addition to creating life-changing trips, Absolute Travel is committed to protecting the world’s wild places and the creatures and traditions that make it worth exploring through their philanthropic arm, Absolute Awareness.
