Global Traveler Announces 14th Annual GT Tested Reader Survey Awards

The results are in! For the 14th consecutive year, Global

Traveler conducted its GT Tested Reader Survey, asking frequent business and leisure luxury travelers to name the best in a variety of travel-related categories.

The survey honors airlines, hotels, loyalty programs and travel-related products in more than 80 categories. GT’s distinguished readers vote for their favorites in the world of travel in an open-ended survey running in the magazine and online from January to August each year. The results of the survey are announced in the December 2017 issue, available now.

GT readers are frequent premium travelers averaging 11 international and 13 domestic round-trip flights a year, with an average household income of $312,000 per year. Global

Traveler’s elite readers spend an average 60 nights per year in hotels. A whopping 68 percent regularly travel in first and business class.

“For 14 years, we’ve been proudly honoring the very best in travel,” said Francis X. Gallagher, publisher and CEO, Global Traveler. “We continue again in 2017, awarding some of the most sought-after honors in travel to an elite group of the best and brightest in the industry. But the awards are also a testament to our readers, well-traveled, savvy frequent flyers who each year vote for their favorites. All winners have three things in common — true dedication to travelers, exceptional service and leadership in the industry. Congratulations!”
