Debunking Misconceptions of Working with a Travel Advisor:
People feel that doing their own planning is empowering, and that giving it up will diminish their experience.
Our clients decide the level of involvement that’s right for them, and this may even vary from trip to trip. If you enjoy research and planning, you’ll have a professional partner. If you prefer having your advisor handle all the details, they can do that, too. Either way, you’ll enjoy quality, customized service.
Consumers believe the Internet provides all the answers they need.
Our clients view their advisor as a trusted resource whose industry knowledge, global relationships, and personal experience add tremendous value, and makes travel planning more enjoyable. A great advisor can validate your own research, and offer insightful recommendations to tailor each trip to your preferences, interests, and budget.
Individuals believe an advisor adds to the cost of the trip.
Our clients know better. A Virtuoso travel advisor has access to the same (and often better) pricing than available online, and can secure VIP benefits, amenities, access, and extras that you can’t get on your own. To quote Warren Buffet, “Price is what you pay; value is that you get.”
People don’t understand the value of a travel advisor.
Virtuoso clients rely on their advisors to make travel planning more efficient and enjoyable, to save time and money, and to lend expertise that makes a world of difference. A Virtuoso advisor also works on your behalf before, during, and after every trip. That’s peace of mind you can bank on.
