Have you ever wondered “what, exactly, is a travel advisor?”. If you answered yes, let’s just say – you wouldn’t be the first. I am confronted with this question almost daily. And while it can be a bit discouraging to have to explain my chosen profession over, and over, and over again – the truth is, most people just simply don’t understand how the travel industry operates.
I’m a firm believer that transparency and honesty is always the best policy, and I never shy away from helping my clients and potential clients understand just what it is I do, or how I am compensated for it. Travel advisors have long been misunderstood, undervalued, and misrepresented by the general public.
But in a post-pandemic world, it couldn’t be clearer that travel is more complex than ever.

Which is why this article from Virtuoso is so timely and relevant in re-solidifying the value and necessity of travel advisors as travelers begin to hit the road again in 2021 and beyond.
