Traveller Review Awards for 2019
I received my "2019" award today to find that someone had decided to change the system and make it for the year ahead rather then the year in which it was earned. They say that it was as a result of feedback from partners so exactly who did they ask??? Not me! I have my previous awards displayed in date order up to 2018 and now the next one I display will be 2020 - so it looks like I failed to gain an award in 2019!! Brilliant! And if it is a "Traveller Review Award" how can it be based on the year ahead rather than the reviews of the year in which it is earned? I collect Harrods year bears and have just received the 2019 one - at the end of the year - and with 2019 on his foot, not 2020! BBC Sports Personality of the Year is just about to be announced and it is 2019 as it is based on the performance throughout the year. Only Booking.com could take a logical system and rehash it to make no sense! Awards and rewards are based on PAST performance, not the future and some could run for a whole year beyond the end of 2020 displaying this award without earning it and guests would be no wiser. Without 2019 there is no continuity and no sequence so not much point in displaying them and I won't be displaying it on my website as it makes no sense at all. How can anyone say how good I will be in 2020 but that award says I am in advance! This is bonkers and I for one want a 2019 award to put on my wall!!
