The Truth About Travel Advisors by Elena Borrero, SmartFlyer Travel Consultant

Updated: Mar 19



We’ve heard a lot of misconceptions about travel advisors: They’re expensive. They’re all the same. They take the fun out of trip-planning. If you already work with a Virtuoso advisor, you know these statements to be far from the truth. But for those who are new to this world (hello!), we thought it might be helpful to do a little myth-busting. Don’t just take it from us: We’ve also gathered some of our favorite stories from Virtuoso travelers about why they love their advisor. The pandemic has taught us a lot, including the fact that we’ll never take travel for granted again. And when it comes to something as valuable as your leisure time, we think you deserve to have it handled by the best.
