We bring corporate airline, car, and hotel rates directly to the employees of these organizations for personal travel, and combine them with our American Express Travel exclusive specials and amenities.

The network of hotels, cruises, and guided vacations we book our clients through is fully vetted by the Virtuoso team for their quality, customer service, and financial viability – one of the many reasons our agency is consistently recognized in the travel industry for excellence.

Can my company join the Employee Vacation Programs network?

If you've found us online and want to offer your employees the benefit of our vacation travel planning services and Virtuoso travel offers, please contact us at 888-261-5521.


Are there booking fees associated with using a travel advisor?

Our travel advisors use their expertise and professional contacts to provide exceptional planning services for our customers and often save them more time and money than attempting to self book.  Please talk to your advisor to see what types of fees may apply to your travel planning and learn more about the value they will add to your vacation planning experience.


Where can I redeem my Gift of Travel award?

If you have been awarded a Gift of Travel Certificate, Congratulations!  We look forward to working with you to plan a truly memorable vacation experience.  Below are important details to keep in mind as you begin the process of identifying how you want to make use of your travel gift.

  • The travel gift certificate may be applied towards a cruise, land vacation or guided tour package to any destination worldwide of your choice and may also be used for airline tickets.
  • You may not redeem your certificate online, through an online booking tool, or for inventory that is available only online. Nor is it redeemable for car/hotel only reservations.
  • To ensure proper tracking and direct control of all trip components as contracted by the purchaser of the award and to maintain the high quality of these bookings your award must be personally handled by a Employee Vacation Programs Travel Advisor.

Should I book online or go through a travel advisor for my next vacation?

We offer the ability to book your super simple trips on our website with fantastic deals right from our home page!  Want to fly from Chicago to visit grandma in Boston? We've got that for you.  

However, when planning a true vacation getaway, especially to a destination new to you or anything international, you will want to engage your personal travel advisor and make the most of their expertise to ensure your valuable vacation time is well spent with the least amount of stress and surprises possible.
