(PRWEB) MARCH 24, 2017

Travel Insured International has been honored with a TravelAge West 2017 Editor’s Pick Award in the category of Travel Insurance as part of the TravelAge West WAVE (Western Agents’ Votes of Excellence) Awards. Now in its twelfth year, the goal of TravelAge West’s WAVE (Western Agents’ Vote of Excellence) Awards is to give travel agents in the West the opportunity to recognize the outstanding qualities and services of their travel-supplier partners.

The Editor’s Picks were chosen by Editor-in-Chief Kenneth Shapiro and the entire editorial team of TravelAge West. Review methods included product analysis, on-site visits, a survey of a select group of travel agents and online research.

“The WAVE Awards provide travel agents in the West with a powerful voice,” said Shapiro. “By participating in the program agents can reward the travel companies that support their businesses.”

In addition to this distinction, Editor’s Pick honorees are also in the running for a WAVE Award, to be determined by a TravelAge West readers’ choice poll conducted during the month of April. The voting is open to readers of the print and online publication, and will be available at www.travelagewest.com/WAVE-Awards.

Editor’s Pick recipients will be celebrated at the WAVE Awards Gala on June 15 at The Ritz-Carlton, Marina Del Rey, in Marina del Rey, Calif., where the readers’ choice winners will be announced as well. TravelAge West will include a special WAVE Awards section in the July 17 issue, highlighting award winners.
