Description

I received a thank you note from a travel client who was thrilled that I was able to get him and his family upgraded to a beachfront suite at the St. Regis in Puerto Rico. Then I was realizing that I need to tell people what I do as a travel advisor and why it is smart to rely on me to put your travel arrangements together. While I have been a travel advisor for over a year and have hundreds of personal contacts around the world, I am also a part of the Virtuoso luxury travel network, which is more than 60 years old. When you rely on me to plan and reserve your trips worldwide, you gain access and special privileges, including: complimentary upgrades, daily breakfast and special amenities at 1,000+ five-star hotels and resorts (go to www.nxtbook.com/nxtbooks/virtuoso/bestofthebest2014/ for an online directory of our preferred hotels and perks) complimentary shore excursions with gourmet meals, cocktail receptions, dedicated hosts on 400+ luxury cruises, special savings or upgrades on international air fares with 50+ top airlines (ask me about our special fares on the new British Airways), destination-based experts to serve as your guides and local concierge service for insider experiences someone who is always there to correct any issues that may arise during your travel (if you book it yourself, you can only call yourself.) So many people don’t realize that travel advisors exist or why or how to use us. I don’t charge fees for most types of trips, so utilizing my service is no more expensive than if you booked it yourself. But there’s a very good chance I can use my contacts and the leverage of the Virtuoso international travel network to deliver an upgraded travel experience for you, and help you make the best decisions to make the most of your valuable vacation time....

Outstanding travel consulting and planning outfit!   Departure Lounge helped my wife and I custom tailor a trip to Peru designed around our interests in cultural experiences, great hotels and adventure travel.  Ashley Heath worked personally with us to make sure that no detail was overlooked on this trip.  What I enjoyed most about the service is the full-range flexibility Departure Lounge offers ...
