When you work with me to plan your travel, you get extras.  Who doesn’t love extras? 

And when you do not work with me, you’re leaving money on the table. All my clients are frugal. No one likes to waste money. And one of the perks of working with a Virtuoso travel advisor is that I can extend your dollar. And on average, travelers receive more than $500 worth of amenities per hotel stay at Virtuoso hotels. But you can’t VIP yourself.

As a Virtuoso advisor, I can maximize the value of any trip through my relationships, connections, knowledge, advice, creativity, and advocacy.

I can secure all sorts of free extras such as free breakfast, spa treatments (or a credit to buy a spa product). I can get you an upgrade or into your room early. Or let you linger in your room longer on your day of departure. I can save you money by getting your wifi included too.

These are all aspects of your trip that hotels would normally charge you for.  And, I also have access to special room rates that are not publicized or even available to the public.  

Most importantly, I save you time, which is priceless. 

Explore the world with these additional benefits that’ll take your travel experience to new heights and beyond.

1 ||  luxury access

Savor and revel in complementary, extraordinary amenities at the top resorts, hotels, and cruise lines around the world. You’ll be treated like a star with plenty of bonuses such as personalized welcome gifts, room upgrades, breakfasts, spa or beverage credits, early check-in/late checkout, and more. 

2 ||  exclusive opportunities

I can procure special entree to after-hour tours, private visits to sites, hard-to-get dinner reservations, and unique experiences with scholarly guides through my affiliation with the worldwide luxury travel network Virtuoso, as a Member of Gifted Travel Network. See the Sistine Chapel after hours, skip the lines at Angkor Wat, or explore the Galápagos Islands with a third-generation naturalist guide. These and more are possible. 

3 || powerful expertise

Computer searches and algorithms are not providing the right answer for you but the most popular one for everyone.  As your travel designer, I save you time and doubt to cut through the clutter and confusion.  I harness my knowledge, background, and personal relationships to ensure top-notch travel adventures. Insider knowledge. Thanks to my own travels and personal relationships with Virtuoso partners around the world, I take trip recommendations well beyond the expected.

Further, in this post-pandemic world, you need up-to-date information on new policies and procedures. This is not the time to travel without travel advice and guidance.

4 || tailored trips

Your desires are the foundations of a memorable, life-changing trip. Nothing feels better. I’ll get to know you, your priorities, and your values to tailor your itinerary to your interests, style, and pace. I craft holidays to deliver on dreams you haven’t even completely formulated or knew were possible, to create unforgettable moments. You’ll treasure those memories for the rest of your life. 

5 || humane interaction

Travel advisors are more humane and more human than our computer counterparts. There’s a saying in the industry – If you go with the internet, you go with God. Also, as online travel sites consolidate into monopolies, customer support and responsiveness will continue to decline. Personal interaction from the beginning to the end of your trip ensures you’re treated well.

6 || responsive support

Travel is only stressful if you do not have the proper help. Bask in a calm, care-free holiday. If you encounter the unexpected (like a pandemic) while you’re away, Premier Wellness Travel has your back.

We also work closely with partners on the ground as additional backup. I know irritating phone support systems or long lines at support desks are not good for your wellbeing, so I’ve got you. Not only that, all your allergies and medical needs will be conveyed ahead to every host and hotel. 

7 || peace of mind

The shrewd traveler appreciates competence. Be confident your hard-earned dollars will get the best value possible and feel the freedom of being in capable hands. Every element of your trips such as dining experiences, reserved tables with private chefs, spa appointments, and private lessons can all be arranged ahead.  

I assemble all your travel details, confirmations, and tickets for your itinerary in a special app and on paper, just in case you don’t have cell service. Leave the logistics to me, and rely on me for insight and support every step of the way. Last-minute cancellations, border closures, unexpected changes –  I have you covered, now more than ever.

8 || guaranteed delight

Half the pleasure of a trip is the anticipation, so we stoke the fire to keep you excited. Our clients receive curated multimedia content that provides insights — into a local culinary treat, an artistic treasure, or even a bit of colorful history — that’ll transform the way you encounter a place.  While on the go, you’ll have access to the travel industry’s best interactive electronic cultural guides. I also love to surprise my customers to enhance their joy and pleasure!

9 || timely counsel

Don’t land in the middle of a construction project or a convention, a tornado, or a threat. I’ll also keep you informed on the latest border openings, restrictions, and closings. And that includes information on visas, passports, health policies, and entries. Amid all the options, you will gain outstanding guidance – before, during, and after – so you can enjoy a safe and smooth trip.  

Working with me offers you numerous perks and privileges. I love nothing more than hearing the delight of my clients when they arrive in the room and see their favorite whiskey waiting for them or the text message I get when their fun Academy Award package is delivered. 

Let’s chat and start planning your next dream getaway.
