Brownell’s relationships with the very best travel providers are decades in the making. These relationships give our advisors competitive advantages as well as peace of mind knowing our partners understand our values and expectations. Through our proprietary Partner Alliance Program, our advisors have access to an exclusive group of thoroughly vetted travel providers around the world. Our team carefully selects partners who understand our core values and business processes, and in turn our advisors have the resources to plan travel on all seven continents. And through our membership in Ritz-Carlton STARS, Four Seasons Preferred Partner, Mandarin Oriental FanClub, and many others, advisors can access amenities, upgrades, and promotions for their clients that no credit card or online travel agency can offer.
If you want to be a luxury travel advisor, you know that Virtuoso is a must. When you are a part of this exclusive network, you can unlock benefits for both your clients and your business. But there are a lot of Virtuoso host agencies – so what makes Brownell different? Our longstanding relationship with Virtuoso. Since becoming the first Virtuoso host agency in 1988, Brownell and Virtuoso have working closely together to shape the travel industry. Though Brownell is a smaller, boutique travel agency, it is a Top 5 Virtuoso agency, a national account, and our independent advisors are actively involved on nearly every Virtuoso committee and board. Brownell is also one of only a handful of Virtuoso National Accounts.

At Brownell, we know that the best way to learn about a destination, hotel, or cruise line is to actually experience it first-hand. And while most agencies go on FAM trips, we go on Educational trips to deepen our knowledge of the world. To make it easier for our Independent Advisors, we established our Educational Team that manages invitations to educational trips with our partners. And we’re not just talking about an opportunity every few months for only the top produces – we offer more than 90 opportunities annually to the entire community. In some cases, Brownell even has funds set aside to help cover to cost of Educational travel.
