What is Virtuoso? And what is a Priority Travel Specialist?
Virtuoso is a luxury travel network; travelers within the network (those who book their travels with the help of a Virtuoso advisor) are guaranteed a vast array of standard benefits. These come from Virtuoso’s exclusive partnerships with over 1,700 luxury travel providers around the world – for example, an exclusive partnership with Four Seasons hotels that enables upgrades, late check-outs, room credits, free breakfasts, and more.
An easy way to conceptualize it: you may associate the idea of a “travel advisor/agent” as something transactional, such as booking your flights and rooms. Virtuoso is more than that. The advisors know properties all over the world, they know opportunities and experiences you can pursue, and they know the tour providers and other professionals who will make those experiences so memorable. It’s a nearly-unparalleled travel experience.
Priority Travel Specialists are a subset of Virtuoso advisors that have been selected to be a part of our program with Merrill Lynch and who regularly book experiences all over the world, and deeply understand that travel is the No. 1 activity people look forward to in retirement – as well as the idea that travel should be a crucial component of the overall financial planning process.
