- When Do-it-Yourself Just Won’t Do
While we are quite proud of what we offer on our website, we are also aware that online booking may not be perfect for all vacations. For certain luxury travel or adventure travel, you may want to talk to one of our experienced and knowledgeable travel consultants. Even Terrell Jones, Travelocity.com president, uses a Virtuoso travel consultant for those “unique experiences” – vacations requiring an inside, first-name connection to the crème de la crème hotels and resorts in the world’s top vacation destinations. As Jones discovered, the Virtuoso name can open doors to hotels and resorts with “no vacancies” for other travelers. In fact, for any type of travel, we are available both online and offline.You can always contact us toll-free at: 1-888-652-6400.
