1. VIP Access
Picture this: you’ve spent hours on in scouring the internet to plan your summer vacation. As you wait to check in, you hear the front desk agent tell the travelers in front of you that they have been upgraded. That evening, after waiting in endless lines for top museums, the person at the bar next to you gushes about their after-hours private tour. And to top it all off, they mention using their hotel credit to cover happy hour. If the mere thought sends you into a spiral, it may be time to call a travel advisor. At Avenue Two Travel, our advisors have a global network of trusted partners, who share our mission to create extraordinary travel experiences. Because of these relationships, our travelers are privy to a number of private and exclusive experiences that simply cannot be booked online. Plus, these partners tend to give our clients a bit of special treatment, so there’s a good chance we can pull some strings to find a room at that sold out hotel.
To put it plainly, you don’t know what you don’t know. Our advisors have explored the world, and they have passport stamps to prove it.
