From the Founder – "What is a recommended deal?"

Ralph Bartel, Founder

Thank you for visiting Travelzoo today! Our mission is to recommend the best deals from the best companies. What do we consider to "recommend" a travel deal? When we at Travelzoo research and publish deals to our 28 million members, we apply the most demanding quality standards.

  1. We never recommend a deal that we wouldn’t book ourselves.
  2. We have our Test Booking Center™ research every Top 20® deal before we publish it.
  3. We are independent in our reviews.

If you like Travelzoo, please recommend us to your family and friends.

Happy Travels!

Ralph Bartel, Ph.D.
