Direct Travel Advisors Named to Prestigious Conde Nast Travel Specialists List

Stephen Smith, Senior Vice-President, Leisure Marketing, North America for Direct Travel is pleased to announce that five of the company’s travel advisors have been named to the worldwide list of Condé Nast Travel Specialists.

The list, which features some 400 travel advisors and niche tour operators around the world, recognizes top advisors for their experience, expertise, resourcefulness and customer care.  As Condé Nast expresses it: “They’ll pull off the impossible and spare you the logistics.”

On the list for the second time is Jesse Taylor of Direct Travel affiliate Taylor Elite Travel in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. “This accolade has given us credibility and definitely brought us clients,” he commented, adding that the inclusion in the group gives invaluable access to fellow group members for networking and collaboration on a worldwide basis.

Also on the 2022 list is Ariane Henry of White Rock, B.C., who is enjoying her second year in the group. Henry says, “I have had many of my clients for years and treat them like family.  I’m passionate about travel and like to think it shows!”  Henry is also quoted in the April 2022 edition of the Condé Nast Traveler magazine, counseling readers on the value of dealing with a travel advisor.

“We are incredibly proud of this elite group,” says Smith, “and of our leisure support and marketing teams who really go above and beyond.”

Other Direct/Vision advisors named to the elite Condé Nast group include American Jennifer Fried and Canadians Lisa and Nancy Zupancic.
