For the third straight year The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company has recognized Tzell Travel Group as its overall highest travel agency revenue producer.

Tzell was honored last month during a ceremony at The Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park. The global hospitality brand honored Tzell as part of the 10th anniversary of its “STARS” program – one of the first travel agency recognition programs. Fewer than 50 independently owned travel agencies participate in the exclusive STARS program.  


“Both Tzell and The Ritz Carlton Hotel Company exemplify leadership in the luxury segment of our industry and it is truly an honor to be recognized by one of the industry’s foremost luxury brands,” said Tzell CEO Barry Liben. “We have been longtime supporters – as evident by our status as a charter member of STARS – and we look forward to continuing our strong partnership for years to come.”

Tzell is a part of the larger Travel Leaders Group.
