New York– CheapOair®, a leading hybrid travel agency (both online and traditional), announced the Gold Winners for the Most Effortless, Most Affordable and Most Enjoyable Cities of the Year in the inaugural CheapOair OwardsTM.

In its first year, the CheapOair Owards recognized 15 American cities that best embody the brand’s mission and vision of making travel effortless, affordable and enjoyable. The finalist cities were chosen by a panel of internal travel experts with years of collective travel and travel booking experience. The finalist cities were then narrowed down to three Gold winners based on independent online travelers’ voting over a two month period.

The 2015 CheapOair Owards Gold Winners are:

  • New Orleans, Louisiana named the Most Effortless City of the Year
  • Savannah, Georgia named the Most Affordable City of the Year
  • Pensacola, Florida named the Most Enjoyable City of the Year

“The winners of the popular vote truly make travel effortless, affordable and enjoyable – just like we strive to do every day at CheapOair,” said Sam Jain, CEO and founder of Fareportal, the company that operates CheapOair. “Travelers booking their next trip to the winning cities of New Orleans, La.., Savannah, Ga., or Pensacola, Fla. can rest assured they’ll enjoy an effortless, budget-friendly and enjoyable travel experience. ”
