Grow Your Independent Business with Largay Travel

As an independent contractor, you create your own vision, set your own goals, and make your own decisions. Your success, and your client's satisfaction, is directly related to how well you organize your resources and apply your skills.

The prestigious Virtuoso Network offers unmatched advantages to Independent Contractors who have affluent leisure clients and want to optimize their luxury travel business and revenue. Those advantages are all yours if you align yourself with a Virtuoso-Member host agency, which you can do without giving up your independence or compromising the privacy of your client list.

Higher commissions, lower operating costs, and a host of other benefits await you as a Virtuoso travel advisor.

Financial Benefits

Higher commissions are yours with preferred cruise lines and tour operators. Virtuoso's international air travel is available at high commissions or low net fares. Virtuoso's preferred hotels pay commissions promptly. Virtuoso's On-Site ground operators let you establish the price your customer pays for custom destination services.

Lower operating costs and freedom from managing staff lets you focus on what you love to do. Meanwhile, Virtuoso's technology, marketing and support services do a lot of the heavy lifting for you. Big ticket items such as GDS contracts and ARC bonds are usually orchestrated by your host agency. You'll experience faster, better response when you use suppliers' Virtuoso-dedicated reservation lines. And, you can have your own personal website - a site that you can customize, update, and change from virtually any remote location.

Mid- and Back-Office Solutions provide you with operational savings from consolidated negotiation with an array of vendors.
