RALEIGH, N.C., Aug. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Travel Experts' management team, will be joined by more than one hundred of its affiliates at Virtuoso Travel Week beginning this weekend in Las Vegas.  Virtuoso named Travel Experts, the premier host agency for independent luxury travel advisors, as a finalist for three of its coveted awards; Top Virtuoso Air Production, Top Virtuoso Network Production and Top Year-Over-Year Revenue Growth in recognition for its outstanding contribution.

"Our independent contractors continue to raise the bar, and we are honored to accept these nominations on their behalf," said Susan Ferrell, founder, and president of Travel Experts.  "Our business model, coupled with our seventeen-year partnership with Virtuoso has proven to be a winning combination as we continue to attract the most passionate and hard-working independent advisors in luxury travel today," she noted.

On the heels of two consecutive years of double-digit growth, 2018 is shaping up to be another strong year for Travel Experts.  Year-to-date numbers reflect a 12.1% growth in sales over the same period last year, and twenty-five new independent luxury advisors have chosen Travel Experts as their host agency of choice.  The management team measures their success by the number of years their independent travel advisors stay within their luxury network.  One hundred and fifty-one of its members have been affiliated with Travel Experts for ten years or more; forty of whom have called Travel Experts home for more than fifteen years.

"While many of our independent contractors are initially drawn to us because of our 100% commission model, they stay because of the superior service levels with which Travel Experts has become synonymous," said Sharon Fake, director of operations. "We take pride in our relationships and work tirelessly with our support staff to make sure we deliver on our promise of excellence," she added.
