Insulation reduces heat loss by replacing air space with a less conductive material (insulation). Therefore the answer is conduction.

It is especially designed to reduce heat transfer through conduction, convection, and radiation. A vacuum between two layers reduces the heat transfer through conduction and convection; the fact that the surfaces are mirror-coated also reduces losses through radiation.

This reduces heat transport through conduction and convection.

The main idea is to reduce the heat transfer out of the vacuum bottle, or into it. A vacuum greatly reduces the transfer of heat by conduction and convection, while the mirror reduces heat transfer by radiation.

A vacuum between two glass sheets will greatly reduce heat loss through convection, and also through conduction. The fact that the glass is coated (to convert it to a mirror) also reduces the loss by radiation.
