You can book travel yourself â€“ but why would you want to? A Virtuoso travel advisor elevates every trip. They know how to get the best value for your time and money, and, thanks to their global connections, they can VIP you at hotels, on cruise lines, on tours, and more. With a portfolio of nearly 2,000 top hotels, cruise lines, tour operators, and more, Virtuoso represents the best of the best in travel.
A great Virtuoso Travel Advisorâ€¦â€¦
Takes It from Ordinary to ExtraordinaryÂ
A Virtuoso travel advisor can secure special benefits that you canâ€™t get on your own, such as complimentary breakfast, spa credits, and upgrades at hotels. But they also see the nuances in every trip. From big-picture aspects (where to go â€“ and when) to the details that matter (booking the hotel rooms with the best views, where to get the most authentic pizza on the Amalfi Coast), your travel advisor knows how to plan a memorable trip.
Knows The WorldÂ
Just as you might use a financial planner, an interior designer, or personal shopper, it makes sense to entrust your most valuable asset â€“ your time â€“ to an experienced travel advisor. Â The best advisors spend a lot of time on the road themselves â€“ scouting out hotels, deepening relationships with tour guides, and finding the best restaurants and things to do.
Knows Your Travel StyleÂ
A Virtuoso travel advisor understands whatâ€™s most important to you and your traveling companions. You may want to take a cooking class or a private tour, or you may not want to leave the resort pool! Perhaps you want to use travel to educate your kids, plan an unforgettable anniversary trip, or celebrate a milestone birthday with friends and family. Your Virtuoso travel advisor will have plenty of suggestions on what might work best for you.
Expands Your HorizonsÂ
A great travel advisor will help you think creatively about where to go and what to do. Italy, France, and Hawaii will always be popular. But your advisor also knows the best ways, say, to see Chile, Portugal, New Zealand, and many other hot destinations â€“ plus new ways to experience the places youâ€™ve already visited. Together, you can plan your next dream trip or weekend getaway.
Can Handle Anything
Have you ever been on a trip where everything wentÂ exactlyÂ as planned? Right â€“ this almost never happens. Issues are bound to pop up, and your Virtuoso travel advisor is your personal help line and â€śfixerâ€ť who knows how to quickly turn things around for the better. When they follow up after your trip, youâ€™ll surely have an answer to this question: â€śWhere do you want to go next?â€ť
