“Virtuoso is about offering travellers experiences that enrich their lives, we are continually evaluating the market in search of unique products that deliver bespoke service and this new partnership is a perfect fit with our brand,” Virtuoso Asia Pacific Managing Director, Michael Londregan said.
“Captain’s Choice is one of Australia’s highest calibre tour operators with an established reputation for having an exceptional understanding of luxury travellers and facilitating personalised touring in exotic destinations.
“Virtuoso’s own agency members are the most important reference point in determining the expansion of our Virtuoso preferred supplier portfolio, this fact seeds the success of supplier and agency relations.”
Commenting on the new partnership, Captain’s Choice Managing Director, Dan Kotzmann said he was looking forward to working with Virtuoso advisors to help deliver exceptional journeys for their clients.
“We are delighted to partner with Virtuoso, a network of agents that we hold in the highest regard,” Mr Kotzmann said.“We believe our luxury cruise, rail and land journeys will prove to be highly sought after with Virtuoso clientele.”In particular, Mr Kotzmann highlighted the Captain’s Choice Journeys by Private Jet program as being a strong opportunity for Virtuoso agents.
“What makes the ‘Journeys by Private Jet’ experience particularly attractive is the ability to experience some of the world’s most astonishing destinations in a journey you would find difficult to create on your own.
“These are one-off itineraries that you can only experience with Captain’s Choice and being able to share these, along with our extended portfolio of exclusive journeys, through Virtuoso agents is an exciting prospect.”
Mr Londregan said Captain’s Choice was a wonderful example of the high quality demanded from the Australian luxury travel market and this demand is reflected in the growth of Virtuoso agents across the Asia Pacific region in the past 12 months.
“Asia Pacific is leading the way in growth of our international luxury travel agency network, with a 47 percent increase in advisor numbers in the region in the past year – a large part of the 26 percent global growth in Virtuoso luxury advisor numbers.”Other new Virtuoso supplier partners include Mat McLachlan Battlefield Tours, 50 Degrees North, COMO The Treasury, Perth and Vomo Island Resort, Fiji.
