“Using an independent travel advisor, clients can book spontaneous getaways with peace of
mind, leaving the experts to get them the best deals and create bespoke packages to suit
them,” added Francesca Mendola, VP, Global Travel Collection. “We pride ourselves on
securing the best contracts and our contracting team works diligently to ensure our
independent travel advisors can deliver exceptional travel experiences that meet every
client’s needs and preferences.”
