Forbes Travel Guide is the only independent global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants, spas and ocean cruises. Its 65th annual list, release in February for 2023, honoured nearly 1,400 rated hotels in 81 countries. The coveted Five-Star, Four-Star and Recommended awards are earned through incognito inspections on FTG’s hundreds of exacting quality and service standards.
Danny Englman, Director of FBI Travel said the agency was elated to be the first FTG agency in Australia.
“We see this prestigious recognition as a validation of our commitment to providing exceptional luxury travel experience to our clients,” Engelman said.
Mark Chaskiel, Director of FBI Travel said “Being part of Forbes Travel Guide is a testament to our commitment to providing exceptional and personalised service to our clients.
“We are honoured to join this prestigious community of top-tier travel professionals and look forward to continuing to exceed our clients’ expectations,” Chaskiel added.
“FTG acknowledges FBI Travel’s commitment to world-class service, which complements FTG’s own principles,” said Richard Lebowitz, Senior Vice President of Travel Industry Outreach for Forbes Travel Guide.
“Through its endorsed relationship with FTG, FBI Travel completed a range of dedicated training, communications and engagement across its advisor network that distinguishes FTG Star Ratings as a trusted source of hotels vetted for service and facility excellence. We are grateful and honoured to collaborate with the FBI Travel team,” Lebowitz said.
