Following its progression into becoming the region's premium luxury travel advisors, the Travel Agency changed its name and style to reflect this.
The Travel Agency in Fernandina Beach announced during their 5th Annual Test Dive the World Luxury Travel Show at the Ritz Carlton, Amelia Island last Wednesday, that the agency changed its name to Wallace Pierson Travel, to reflect its progression away from the traditional travel agency to specialist in the art of travel.
Founded in 1974 by Jim and Ange Wallace, who met during their employ at Panamerican World Airways in Miami, in the Old School in Fernandina Beach, the Travel Agency over the years developed a travel philosophy that reached far beyond the status quo of writing plane tickets and handing out brochures for cruises. Even before the introduction of the internet, they started orchestrating imaginative vacations, customized for its clientele, by taking the time to get to know their individual interests and preferences and match them with their growing expertise to design vacations capable of returning the greatest Return on Life. This picture-video shows a nutshell of the agency’s past 40 years.
In the process of becoming the premier agency in the region, they became an invited member of Virtuoso Luxury Travel Specialists, an affiliation of top of the line travel advisors with unprecedented access to the world’s top travel suppliers, cruise companies and hotel-resort properties.
The benefits Virtuoso membership brings hotel travelers is not available to the general public and ranges from spa treatments, room upgrades, candlelit dinners and limousine transfers to complimentary breakfasts, check-in/check-out time flexibilities and preferred rates.
Cruise traveler benefits, especially when reserving a Virtuoso Voyager Club sailing include a dedicated onboard host, welcome receptions, exclusive shore events and much more.
The Wallace Pierson Travel mantra is: “We’re specialized in advising savvy travelers and deliver extraordinary experiences,” says founder Ange Wallace, “adding, “we put our global connections to work to ensure that you receive the best access, upgrades and amenities. Wherever you want to go, whatever you want to do, we can arrange it to the smallest details.”
The 5th Annual Test Drive the World show last Wednesday at the Ritz Carlton, Amelia Island was living proof that Wallace Pierson Travel delivers Return on Life Travel Experiences.
