About The Magellan Awards:

The Magellan Awards are the premier award for the travel industry. From design to marketing to services, the Travel Weekly Magellan Awards honors the best in travel and salutes the outstanding travel professionals behind it all.

Honoring a broad range of industry segments including Hotels and Resorts, Destinations, Cruise Lines, Online Travel Services, Airlines and Airports, Travel Agents and Agencies, and Car Rental Companies, the Magellan is the award to win if you are in the business of travel.

Designed by the same firm that makes the Oscar® and Emmy®, the Travel Weekly Magellan Awards statuette stands nearly a foot tall, weighs more than 4 ½ pounds, and serves as a tribute and recognition of outstanding work. 

Per Maria Thomas, “I am excited and honored with our win for the fourth consecutive year!  It is a true honor to be selected and included by our peers within the industry.”

This year’s Award Winners represent the best in travel from design, to marketing, to services”, noted Arnie Weismann, editor-in-chief of Travel Weekly.  He added, “On behalf of Travel Weekly, we are proud to honor this year’s winners and are excited to recognize the people who are at the forefront of the industry.”

About Judy and Maria's Travel

A random visit by Judy to a local flower shop in 1990 brought forth the creation of an exciting business endeavor. Judy's casual conversation with the floral shop owner about a need for a knowledgeable travel agency in their community brought forth the formation of Judy and Maria's Travel, Inc. and the development of Judy and Maria's Travel Reviews.

Judy and Maria’s distinct vision, along with being utterly determined to be the best at what they do, took them to the next level, developing a distinct internet site www.judyandmariastravel.com.  Through self-education they discovered how to target and implement key sales strategies within the marketplace along with realizing and understanding the consumer's needs.  The website gained a large following with web-browsers worldwide.  Judy and Maria’s client-base is international.  Little did they realize when they started their business that they would develop global friendships and partnerships.

Judy and Maria’s desire to focus and excel, yet place significant limits on growth, along with their distinct vision has enabled them to achieve remarkable ends.  The core and soul of our business grew out of developed relationships with suppliers, hoteliers, customers, employees and friends.

Call it fate, or just plain good old-fashioned timing. Judy and Maria’s chance encounter would bring to fruition a focused business relationship enabling them to grow and to gain recognition within the travel industry as a small giant, a company that chose to be great instead of big.

Judy and Maria's Goal

Our goal is to provide a quality vacation experience matched to clients' requests & to meet or exceed expectations by listening to the client’s needs, specializing in specific products, & by knowledge of the product gained by personal interaction with the product providersWe visit select resorts a minimum of twice yearly to update & review quality & consistency. We take pride in knowing what we sell. We converse with our clients on a direct basis. We know resort managers and suppliers well & maintain rapport with them. Our agency's foremost priority is to meet with sales/management teams at select resorts to discuss our clients who will vacation at their properties. A well-polished resort is not our deciding factor to promote & sell. Our objective is to ensure that our client(s) will be taken care of from the beginning-to-the-end of their vacation. A great resort has a strong agency/client-oriented management team in place. Customer Satisfaction & Retention is Foremost!
