Virtuoso adds Aurora Expeditions as preferred partner

Virtuoso has welcomed Aurora Expeditions to its exclusive regional Preferred Partners Program across the Asia-Pacific.

The luxury travel agency network’s invitation-only partnership program will connect the expedition cruise line with more than 1,500 elite Virtuoso luxury travel advisors in the region.

Virtuoso travel advisors can access the Aurora Expeditions profile, which includes voyages, pricing sheets, images, trip notes and other relevant collateral via the network’s portal.

Michael Londregan, senior vice president of global operations at Virtuoso, said: “Our Virtuoso community in Asia-Pacific is excited to be partnering with Aurora Expeditions.

“Aurora has a rich history of exploration and innovation which drives unique experiences, and we are looking forward to working with the Aurora team as we get our clients travelling and living their best travel lives.”

Aurora Expeditions CEO Monique Ponfoort described the cruise line being invited to become a Virtuoso partner as “an absolute honour”.

“We truly value the unrivalled reputation of Virtuoso member advisors, and we really look forward to offering their clients next-level expedition travel experiences that surpass their expectations,” she said.

Aurora Expeditions’ regional director of sales, Steve McLaughlin, added: “Travel advisors play such a key role in our business, so we are thrilled and honoured to be working with Virtuoso’s talented, hand-picked team of advisors.

“While the last year has been incredibly challenging for travel advisors, we know the future is bright and we look forward to welcoming Virtuoso agents and their clients into our Aurora Expeditions community.”
