Founder and President of the World Travel Awards, Graham E. Cooke, accompanied the revelation of the 2011 World Travel Awards Nominees explaining that "with the global recession affecting travellers and their budget, the ability to choose quality travel products is becoming increasingly important to both business and consumer travellers". The World Travel Awards help travelers decide which Travel Company to book with by providing “the list of winners as a reliable guide and means of reassurance when choosing their holiday”, Cooke said. Several travelers have booked personalized Vacation Packages to Brazil or South America with Discover Brazil, ILS3 and Discover.Travel Group after observing that this travel company has won the World Travel Awards as South America’s Leading Travel Agency in 2009 and 2010, and have stated that they will choose Discover.Travel Group again for future travels.
