Investing in luxury travel is one of the year’s most significant trends. That being said, it’s important to note that 2019’s definition of “luxury” differs from previous interpretations. Knowing this information will help you update your appeal to the luxury travel market. Here is a rundown of how travelers define “luxury” these days.
At Sky Bird, we are always striving for excellence, whether it’s getting the lowest net fares to our clients or growing our relationships with airlines. Last year at the 2017 Travvy Awards, we were pleased to take home gold for Best Airline Consolidator. It was an incredible honor to know that travel agents and industry professionals trust us enough to vote us into first place.
In 2018, we were deeply humbled to be nominated a third time. The Travvy Awards hosts and nominees gathered once again to celebrate excellence in the travel industry. We are pleased to report that Sky Bird Travel & Tours took home gold for the second consecutive year!
This award is a reflection of our dedication as well as the excellent partnerships we have with airlines, without whom we could not provide the incredible fares we’re known for. We are exceedingly grateful to everyone who cast their vote in our favor. And of course a big thank you to travAlliancemedia for hosting the Travvys!

At Sky Bird, we are always striving for excellence, whether it’s getting the lowest fares to our clients or growing our relationships with airlines. We always set our sights on being the best, and this year you, the travel agent, recognized and voted us #1. For that, we are profoundly grateful.
