Travelocity.com has been named the “Best Overall Travel Site” in the June 2001 Yahoo! Internet Life Gold Star Sites and the Integrated Marketing Award from the Association of Travel Marketing Executives (ATME).
The Yahoo! Internet Life award recognized Travelocity`s unique capabilities such as Team Up To Travel, its leadership in wireless booking and the Travelocity.com World MasterCard, which is the first of its kind. The online travel leader received straight A`s for its low fares, noteworthy tools, timely travel advice and additional travel resources, and A+ ranking overall.
In addition to honours from one of the most respected Internet publications, Travelocity`s successful marketing efforts were acknowledged by the Association of Travel Marketing Executives, which is the premier association dedicated to furthering professional education and the exchange of information to help travel marketers achieve their goals. Michael Stacy, senior vice president consumer marketing of Travelocity, received the award on May 23 during a ceremony at the ATME Conference. We will have more on the rest of the survey results later.
