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.
“Traveling – It leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.”
Personalized planning: Whether you’re the do-it-yourself type seeking validation or want someone else to take the reins, when you collaborate with a travel advisor of Luxury Ventures Travel your trips will be tailored to your interests and budget. An advisor gets to know your preferences and instinctively anticipates your needs and wishes down to the smallest detail.
Global expertise and connections: Not only do our travel advisors have extensive personal knowledge of destinations and products around the world, they have relationships with global partners who can arrange experiences to make a trip truly extraordinary.
Value: A Luxury Ventures Travel advisor has access to the same (and often better) pricing than you can find online. They can secure special perks like complimentary room upgrades, daily breakfast, and other benefits you can’t get on your own. The amenities you’ll receive on a hotel stay alone are valued at up to $450+ per stay.
VIP treatment: A Luxury Ventures Travel advisor has access behind the velvet rope to experiences you never even dreamed were possible. After all, you can’t VIP yourself, but your advisor can by securing you exclusive entry to events, private tours, and more.
Convenience: Planning and booking your own trip would take hours and hours. Even then, it’s like drinking from a fire hose with all the information out there. Travel advisors provide the kind of top-notch service that helps you conserve your most precious resource: time.
Peace of mind: In addition to saving you time and money, your advisor is available 24/7 before, during, and after your trip – so you can relax and have fun.
