What is the Woodlake difference? . . .
Working with a Woodlake Travel is like having your own Black Book of global insider information, contacts, and access to those who can cut through the mountains of available information to create experiences that exceed expectation.
In a phrase, ‘we’ve been there’, and want to put our experiences and knowledge to work for you. Our love for all things travel has taken our team of travel advisors around the world, and our affiliation with the prestigious Virtuoso luxury travel network allows us to maintain contact with top-tier hotels, resorts, cruise and airlines, and tour operators across the globe, through direct contact and professional development interactions, to deliver amenities and experiences that result in exceptional travel experiences.
Our Process, and the value derived from working with a Woodlake Travel Advisor are things we feel strongly about in the creation of memorable travel experiences. Key aspects of our process and value are as follows:
Get to Know YOU – We all have different motivations for traveling, so getting to know you and your interests allow us to understand your preferences, and overall style, in ways that result in meaningful travel experiences.
Collaborative Approach – Some people enjoy participating in the research and reservation process, while others prefer simply to peruse beautiful photos and rely on their travel advisor to provide recommendations and make reservations. We work with our clients in whatever way is appropriate to design and deliver memorable life experiences.
Make Bookings & Organize Travel Documents – As you review and approve of different aspects of your itinerary, we ensure all components of a successful trip are booked, reserved, and presented to you in a seamlessly. This can include the booking of flights, accommodations, transfers, special activities and meals, and anything else unique to the creation of your travel experience.
As a member of the exclusive Virtuoso travel network, Woodlake Travel is often able to secure special benefits and amenities for you during the booking process, often unavailable for independent travelers. Amenities vary, but a sampling can include: room upgrades, complimentary breakfasts, credits within hotels, spas, or on cruise ships, and frequently unique experiences local to your destination.
Ally and Advocate While Traveling – Your travel advisor is there for you during your travels. While we never expect challenging occurrences to arise while traveling, if they do, it is comforting to know your travel advisor is available to act as a ‘fixer,’ rather than being at the mercy of an ‘800’ number.
Post-Travel Interaction to Continuously Improve – Upon your return, your advisor will reach out for any fun travel stories, and discuss what went well and what could have gone more smoothly with the goal of taking note of how to make those next journeys that little bit better and better over time.
As a member of Virtuoso, Woodlake Travel is part of an ‘invitation-only-network’ of professional relationships with the world’s leading hotels and resorts, tour operators, and airlines. This means you as a client are afforded exclusive amenities and a higher level of service.
Let us tap into these wide-reaching relationships and amenities to craft a unique and exciting travel experience.
