In 2000, I was pregnant with my first child, who’s now a freshman in college – and an avid traveler with a passport full of stamps. She’s never known an airport where families could greet their loved ones at the gate, luggage without wheels, cameras with film, or trip planning without the Internet. As a global citizen, however, she does know the power of travel to unite. And as a digital native, she knows the volume of information out there is at once empowering and overwhelming.
That’s the beauty of working with a Virtuoso travel advisor, who has the know-how and network of connections to help create personalized itineraries that might elude a DIYer. Interestingly, the digital age, which some predicted would mean the end of the transactional travel agent, actually created demand for a more sophisticated travel advisor, who can curate through the clutter.
