The Virtuoso Advantage

Would you like to be picked up from the airport and taken directly to your hotel by private transfer?

Would you like to have a welcome basket with fresh fruit and cold water waiting inside your private transfer?

Would you like your resort room to be upgraded to a two bedroom/two bathroom sea view villa simply because it was available?

Would you like to enjoy a complimentary breakfast buffet ….

On a terrace overlooking the Mediterranean?

And when you were finally hungry again after the massive breakfast spread, would you like to enjoy a complimentary three course lunch while you again looked over the blue and turquoise sea?

Of course you answered yes to these questions! Who wouldn’t?! And it is much easier to obtain these benefits than you may think … all you need to do is stay at a Virtuoso partner property and book with a Virtuoso travel advisor like me! Although I own my travel business, I am an independent affiliate of Gifted Travel Network which is a Virtuoso member agency.

The Virtuoso service level is not limited to rooms at resorts. There are over 1,800 travel providers such as airlines, car rental companies, cruise lines, and tour operators that are part of the Virtuoso network. The extra amenities provided differ between travel providers, but you can be guaranteed a level of service unparalleled in the travel industry.

One of the most popular Virtuoso programs is Virtuoso Voyages. These are select sailings that go beyond the normal perks offered with Virtuoso preferred cruise lines. On these sailings, there is a dedicated onboard host to ensure that your voyage goes smoothly, a private welcome aboard cocktail reception to get you acquainted with your ship and other Virtuoso guests, and exclusive shore excursions.

Travelers can not book directly with Virtuoso. A simple analogy to help explain the role Virtuoso plays is that the company acts as a link between travel advisors and travel providers. Virtuoso vets companies on both sides of this link to ensure that all members of this network are committed to high levels of service for travelers. Their goal is not to create travel experiences, but rather to provide their seal of approval on all components of a trip to ensure the overall experience is sublime.

There is no additional cost for the Virtuoso amenities, so there really is no reason not to work with a Virtuoso affiliated travel advisor to plan your next vacation. Travel advisors use first-hand experiences to craft custom itineraries for clients, but Virtuoso affiliated travel advisors are able to take it a step further by giving their clients unique experiences, complimentary perks, VIP treatment, and rare access.

I can book my clients with various types and levels of travel providers and will always strive to find the best fit for them, but having Virtuoso preferred partners at my disposable makes my job much easier. Being an independent affiliate of a Virtuoso member agency is what all travel advisors strive for, so I am grateful to have this relationship from the very start of my travel career.

I hope to introduce you to the Virtuoso advantage on your upcoming travels!
