            “Less than one percent of travel agencies in America are admitted for membership in Virtuoso,” said Johnson.  “This renowned network of luxury travel specialists leverages its combined annual sales of more than $10 billion to negotiated special upgrades, amenities, values and truly rare travel experiences exclusively for the clients of its member agencies.  For the clients of Travel Services, this translates to complimentary room upgrades, airport transfers, special dining experiences, exclusive shore excursions and custom itineraries, offered by the world’s best providers of upscale travel.  We are very proud to have been invited to join Virtuoso and now to be able to offer these additional perks to our clients.”
