Crooked Compass has been accepted into Virtuoso’s exclusive Regional Preferred Partner Program across Asia-Pacific.
Crooked Compass will join a portfolio of more than 2,000 travel suppliers around the world, from luxury hotel groups and global cruise lines to boutique properties and high-end adventure operators.
Crooked Compass founder Lisa Pagotto says it’s an honour for her homegrown company to join the ranks of the world’s leading luxury network.
Pagotto said: “We are thrilled to become one of Virtuoso’s preferred suppliers. It’s a watershed moment for Crooked Compass and it couldn’t come at a better time.
“Despite the challenging conditions of the past two years, we have continued to push boundaries to create tours that provide travellers with intimate connections to people and places, and a deeper understanding of the culture they are immersing in.
“To be welcomed because of our unique approach to travel, our exclusive experiences, our VIP services and our high level of expertise, means the world to us.
“This partnership is a clear indication that travel advisors and their clients are seeking out a more sustainable and immersive style of travel post-pandemic, which is something we are really excited about”.
Virtuoso partnerships director of Australia and New Zealand, Evan Pierce, said the Virtuoso community in Asia-Pacific was excited to be partnering with Crooked Compass.
Pierce said: “Crooked Compass’ innovative approach to providing authentic travel experiences is a perfect fit for Virtuoso. We are looking forward to working with Lisa as we get our clients travelling again and living their best travel lives.”
