Top Ranked NZ Awards 2016


All eligible tourism companies in NZ are part of the Rankers Awards?

For sure. Has to be. No-one pays to participate. Every tourism operator within each eligible category is in to win. Over 4000 experiences qualified for this year's awards.

That must make for a lot of awards!

Sure does. 4 Supreme Winners. 37 Category Winners. 26 Category Finalists.

How are the winners chosen, exactly?

Experiences are assessed by travellers we meet on the road in NZ. Some reviews are also placed by the good folk that log into our site. They offer reviews, and ranking scores, from 1 to 10. These count over a full year, not just the current standing.

Why are there no awards for some categories?

Some categories either didn't have enough reviews, or the full spectrum of operators to qualify for an award

How come some categories have fewer finalists than others?

Categories with the most reviews and a number of strong qualifiers, they will have a winner and two finalists. Those with fewer reviews and qualifiers have less finalists.

How many awards can each tourism operator win?

One Category award. No multiple category award winners. The tourism operator gains their award in the category of highest achievement. Got a nice ring, don't you reckon: "Category of highest achievement"?

How do you choose Supreme Winners again?

From all the category winners, 4 Supreme winners are chosen from the entire accommodation, activities and free experience sectors.
