Why Use an Advisor
I CREATE seamless travel experiences that are completely tailored to your unique travel needs and desires. Through a simple but effective process, I work closely with and advocate for you from the very first conversation until after travel is completed. No matter how simple or intricate the itinerary, you can rest assured that every detail is being taken care of and that you can count on me to be there for you--no matter how near or far.
Quite a bit of work and time goes into planning successful trips and one of our most coveted resources is our free time, as my client, you are able to keep that precious time to spend in other ways as I handle the time-consuming tasks that go into planning amazing trips.
From the first conversation all the way through to when you return from your trip, I am there for you. It doesn’t stop with the booking. So if an issue arises while you are traveling, I am there as your advocate to handle the situation. And because of the relationships I have with hotels, cruise lines, etc., I am much better leveraged to come to the quickest and best resolution. Online booking engines don't offer that kind of peace of mind.
EXPERIENCE & KNOWLEDGE
With my own experience and knowledge along with that of my contacts within the world-wide Virtuoso network, of which I am a proud member, there is no destination that is beyond my reach of expertise.
Many people believe that the best deals are online. But you don’t know what you don’t know. Through my far-reaching connections and relationships, I have access to exclusive packages, deals and amenities that you would not be able to access on your own...or could even know exist. I go the extra mile to make sure value is a definite component of the service I provide to you.
Through my by-invitation only membership with Virtuoso, I have access to a global network of hotels, tour companies, cruise lines and more that allow me to offer you special amenities such as credits, upgrades and exclusive access opportunities. Loyalty programs are nice but you simply cannot VIP yourself like a well-connected travel advisor can. As a Virtuoso advisor, I ensure that you can expect VIP treatment with no request being too small or too big.
A PERSONALIZED TOUCH
An immensely important (and my favorite) part of what I do is getting to know my clients. The knowledge I gain through this process allows me to create experiences that are completely tailored to you with personal touches that you could not have the pleasure of experiencing if planning on your own.
