Beverly Hills, California Travel Agent
Savvy Corporate Travel Advisor
I view myself as an extension of the businesses I work for. That means providing top value and finding for the best deals as well as making travel as easy and comfortable as possible for my travelers.
Thanks to my previous career in the fast-paced world of hedge funds and finance, I understand how critical travel is to business opportunities. I know that if you request a flight or want to change plans, it doesn’t mean I can take care of it in three days; it means it has to happen now.
Travel is the third largest controllable expense for a firm. Recognizing this, I put the buying power of Protravel behind everything I do. I have access to exclusive pricing and contracts through the direct alliances and VIP partnerships Protravel International has built. As a result, I can provide pricing quotes and air and hotel programs that enable business travelers to enjoy traveling for work, but not at the expense of the company's budget. For example, in some cases, I can arrange for upgrades to business class for the price of full-fare coach.
I work hard to add value to every step of the way. Often, this means thinking outside the box and offering options you would not think of or know about on your own. For example, if you request a flight from New York to London at 6 p.m. on airline A, I might inform you that you could save money by departing an hour later or flying on a different airline. Similarly, if you request a one-way ticket from New York to Boston, I will ask how you are getting back, because the roundtrip fare may be lower than a one-way fare.
If you are my client, I will also know your priorities. For example, if you want a hotel with a gym that is open 24/7 so you can get in a workout before your first meeting, I will check to see that it has the equipment you prefer. If your priority is being able to roll out of bed at the last possible moment, I will look for hotels within a few minutes from your meeting.
Plus, I keep my product knowledge and contacts up to date so if you want to stay at the trendiest hotels or get reservations at the most in-demand restaurants, I can help.
When there are the inevitable airline delays, flight cancelations, and other travel hiccoughs, I am there to get you on your way and often can arrange priority waitlist clearance and other preferential treatment.
At the end of the day, I want every traveler to feel that I have made their trips as seamless and luxurious as possible. Plus, when we run the numbers, I want to be able to show how much money I was able to save your company.
Allow me to book your business travel and I assure you quality, precision, professionalism and an exceptional level of service that will enhance your travel experience and improve your bottom line.
