Adelman Vacations Renews Membership with Virtuoso

Travel Agency Stays With Exclusive Luxury Travel Network


(Milwaukee, WI, June 24, 2014) – Adelman Vacations renewed membership in the by-invitation-only Virtuoso luxury travel network, comprised of top leisure travel agencies in North and South America, the Caribbean and Australia.

“Less than one percent of travel agencies in America are admitted for membership in Virtuoso,” said Mike Detrick, Managing Director of Adelman Vacations. “This renowned network of luxury travel specialists leverages its combined annual sales of more than $10 billion toward negotiated special upgrades, amenities, values and truly rare travel experiences exclusively for the clients of its member agencies. We are very proud to renew this membership with Virtuoso and continue to offer these additional perks to our clients.”

Adelman Vacations dissolved membership with another luxury consortium attained in the 2012 acquisition of Great Southern Travel. Though both offered value to Adelman Vacations clients, certain benefits and advantages led to the decision to renew membership with Virtuoso.

Beyond the monetary values, membership in Virtuoso allows Adelman Vacations to continue providing our clients: • Access to travel consultants trained at the highest industry level with worldwide supplier relationships • Luxury perks and amenities at 983 properties, 38 not covered by any other program. This includes Four Seasons, which is exclusive to Virtuoso and does not partner with any other consortia. • Maximized savings through robust published and unpublished international fare content within the Adelman Integrated Fares program • Significant global reach through the strongest industry air program, providing 24/7/365 in-house support
