Arbiter Travel Co. is an affiliate of SmartFIyer, a Virtuoso agency. When you work with us, you benefit from the strong relationships that we have built with hotels and vendors around the world.
When we plan your trip – no matter how big or small, near or far – you are not just another guest at a hotel. You are a VIP that receives exceptional service, priority upgrades whenever available, and exclusive value-add amenities and offerings.
And the benefits of hiring a professional travel advisor don’t stop there…
1. TIME + KNOWLEDGE
TIME + KNOWLEDGE
Technology has made our world smaller, but not always easier to navigate. Between lnstagram and the Internet, everyone has access to an endless library of reviews and information (not all of which is accurate, let alone relevant to you). Information overload and infinite options can be overwhelming – and make you feel like you need a vacation just from planning your vacation. It’s our job to curate those options and provide customized recommendations just for you.
2. EXPERTISE + ACCESS
EXPERTISE + ACCESS
As sell-proclaimed “arbiters of taste” in the travel world, we take pride in the places we send our clients. We’ve made it our business to seek out and experience the most beautiful places around the globe – old and new. We have the latest hotel openings on our radar (and know which former greats could use an update). We also receive continuous feedback from our clients – and other SmartFlyer advisors – so we make sure we are only sending you to the best hotels and destinations.
Some clients know exactly where they want to visit before working with us, and others have no idea. Either way, all of our itineraries are truly bespoke, so we’ll get some personal history from you before getting started. By understanding your travel history, personal style, culinary preferences, and hobbies or interests, we are able to recommend destinations, accomodations, and experiences that are perfectly tailored to your tastes and travel preferences. Think you know it all, or love to plan? We’ll collaborate with you and customize the process to however involved you want to be.
4. EASE + ORGANIZATION
EASE + ORGANIZATION
There’s a reason “Travel Advisor” is a full-time job. We do the work so you can enjoy your vacation stress-free (before, during, and after). Simply tell us what you want, and we send you a customized itinerary based on your preferences and budget. After you’ve decided, we book and confirm everything for you – keeping everything organized from start to finish. We’ll remind you of payment dates, and before you go, we’ll send you all of your booking numbers, reservation details, and travel information in one easily accessible mobile app.
5. PERKS + VALUE
PERKS + VALUE
We have strong relationships with the best luxury hotels and vendors in the world, so our clients are always given VIP treatment on arrival. While we are not “deal finders,” we often provide extra value on top of the best rates available (think complimentary breakfast, $100 restaurant or spa credits, airport transfers, or a bottle of champagne in your room) – and can almost always match any rates published online. (We also have access to unpublished international airfare.)
