With this distinction, the Editor’s Pick winners can compete for a TravelAge West WAVE Award (Western Agent Votes of Excellence), which will be determined through a survey/vote among TravelAge West travel agents and readers.

Now in its 15th year, the goal of the WAVE awards is to give travel consultants in the Western United States the opportunity to recognize the outstanding qualities and services of their travel supply partners.

This year’s Editor’s Picks were made by TravelAge West’s editor-in-chief, Kenneth Shapiro, and the entire editorial team. Review methods included product analysis, site visits, a survey of a select group of travel consultants and online research.


“A WAVE Award is one of the most coveted in the travel industry,” said Ken Shapiro. “It’s a way for travel consultants in the West to recognize the companies that support them. The companies represented in the WAVE Awards provide consistently superior experiences for travelers, making travel consultants heroes for their clients.”
