For the second consecutive year, Trafalgar Tours has won the "Best International Tour Operator" award in Travel Weekly's prestigious Readers' Choice Awards. The award was announced on December 11th during Travel Weekly's awards gala at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City.

Travel Weekly's annual Readers' Choice Awards are an open-ended survey, and nominees are suggested by Travel Weekly's readership of agents, industry marketing executives and the CEOs of the world's largest travel companies. Those same readers honored Trafalgar with the top award from a list of seven nominees in the International Tour Operator category.

"We are honored that the readers of Travel Weekly have recognized Trafalgar for the quality, value, reliability and hassle-free nature of our authentic destination touring experience, and for the high levels of customer service we provide to both our clients and travel agent partners alike," states Paul Wiseman, President of Trafalgar Tours. " We know that in times like these, travel agents appreciate Trafalgar's commitment to paying generous commissions, keeping our pricing stable and providing a product and value that result in record passenger satisfaction levels and profitable repeat business for those same passengers' travel agents. Our thanks go out to the readers of Travel Weekly, and we are looking forward to continuing to earn their support and respect."

Trafalgar Tours' customer service ratings achieved record levels in 2008, and their upcoming 2009 itineraries include a number of exciting new features designed to provide travelers with an even more authentic, local destination experience. In 2009 Trafalgar will also be launching unique, innovative customer relationship management initiatives designed to strengthen the bond between Trafalgar, travel agents and the travel agents' clients. Trafalgar also recently introduced the innovative Trip Gift Registry program to allow passengers' relatives and friends to help celebrate a special occasion by funding part of their Trafalgar tour.
