2013 FlyerTalk Awards: Vote Today!
The official balloting for the 2013 FlyerTalk Awards starts today and will run through February 15, 2013.
These annual awards honor the best affinity programs in the airline, hotel and car rental industries as selected by members of the most popular frequent flier community in the world of greater than 456,000 business and leisure travelers dedicated to finding and sharing elite-level knowledge of affinity programs worldwide.
As a registered FlyerTalk member, this will be your opportunity to cast your vote exclusively on FlyerTalk and tell the frequent travel loyalty rewards programs of airline, hotel and rental car companies who is doing it right — and who has room for improvement. You are the expert!
Awards will be presented for the following categories:
- Best Rewards Program of the Year
- Outstanding Benefit of the Year
As nominated by FlyerTalk members during the polls in December 2012, airline, hotel and car rental are in the running for the award of Outstanding Benefit programs in three geographic regions:
- The Americas
- Europe and Africa
- Asia and Oceania
Last year, the FlyerTalk community awarded 18 trophies — nine for Best Program and nine for Outstanding Benefit — to six multiple award-winning programs, and there are 18 more up for grabs this year. Who will challenge American Airlines AAdvantage, British Airways Executive Club and Cathay Pacific Asia Miles? Can another hotel program sidle up next to Hilton HHonors and Starwood Preferred Guest — and can rental car program challenge Hertz? You decide with your vote.
