Are you looking to level up your next trip?

Searching for personalized recommendations from someone who’s actually been there?

Maybe you’re hoping to save some time, and take the stress out of travel planning?

Or, you’re looking to score hotel perks on your next weekend away (or staycation, or solo trip, or honeymoon)?

Whatever your reason, Fora is your secret weapon. When you book with a Fora Advisor, you benefit from expert itinerary planning, insider recs & killer hotel perks.

Intrigued? Read on for three reasons to book your next trip with a Fora Advisor. Then, connect with Fora to start planning.

Reason 1: You’ll have a better planning & booking experience (with personalization, insider intel & attention to detail) before your trip

When you book with a Fora Advisor, you're working with a dedicated and passionate individual, whose only goal is to ensure you have the best experience possible — starting with the planning phase. Plus, you gain access to a treasure trove of insider knowledge & recommendations — not only from your dedicated Fora Advisor, but from our global network of travel experts and advisors.

What does this mean, exactly? Instead of sifting through endless top ten lists and working with a call center or algorithm, your Fora Advisor is all about you. The process begins with an intake. Whether you prefer to connect via phone, Facetime, email or text, your Fora Advisor will take the time to get to know you. They’ll listen to your expectations, preferences and budget, then get to work to deliver exactly what you want ….whether it’s a one-night staycation or a far-flung safari.

Plus, Fora Advisors live to curate ideal hotel experiences, including sourcing the best rates and unlocking VIP upgrades (more on that below). And advisors always mind the details, from guaranteeing connecting rooms to confirming food allergies to adding special touches for birthdays.

In other words? You’ve got someone on your side who is doing all the heavy lifting. With Fora, you connect with someone who has shared interests and passion — not to mention expertise & planning experience in your chosen destination — who can help you plan the best possible trip. Plus, you benefit from dedicated, 1:1 support, and might even meet a cool new friend along the way.

Reason 2: You’ll travel like a VIP, with killer hotel perks, priority room upgrades… the works

Once your trip is underway, the magic continues. 

Our travelers benefit from Fora’s decades-long relationships in the travel industry and best-in-class partnerships with hotels worldwide (including invitation-only programs like Four Seasons Preferred). This means that when you book with a Fora Advisor, you’re initiated into an exclusive club, allowing you to travel like a VIP wherever you go.

What does this mean, exactly? You’ll be the hotel’s top priority. Not only will your specific needs be taken care of (remember those details your advisor noted during your intake call?), but you’ll benefit from the highest status at the hotel — higher status than clients who book through Amex or the hotel directly. So, you get preference for room upgrades and are always marked as VIP prior to your arrival. (Learn why booking through Fora is better than booking through Amex.)

And did we mention perks? Again, thanks to Fora’s extensive partner network, when you book with a Fora Advisor, you’re guaranteed perks at 4,500+ hotels worldwide, including Virtuoso, Rosewood, Belmond, Rocco Forte and more. These perks include resort & spa credits, welcome amenities, complimentary breakfast and airport transfers.

But it’s more than that. These industry relationships ensure you’ll have the best experience possible while on the ground. Your advisor works directly with the hotel’s management team (we’re talking, general manager on speed dial…), so you know you’re always taken care of. And if you need to make a change or something goes awry when traveling, your advisor is waiting in the wings to advocate and problem-solve on your behalf.

Peace of mind and extra perks? Don’t mind if we do…

Reason 3: You can feel good about supporting a small-business entrepreneur

When you work with a Fora Advisor, you’re not only leveling up your travel, you’re helping a passion-fueled small business grow.

Fora Advisors become Fora Advisors because planning epic trips is in their DNA. Not only do they live and breathe the world of travel — which is why they are selected to become Fora Advisors — but they’re small-business entrepreneurs, to boot.

That’s where you come in. When you work with a Fora Advisor, you’re investing in their passions and helping them develop their business. You get to collaborate with a real person (again, no call centers or algorithms here) who has all your needs top-of-mind. 

The result? You can feel good knowing you’re not only getting the best-of-the-best in terms of service and intel, but you’re helping a small business thrive.

“Tracy was instrumental in coordinating and booking my birthday and our anniversary luxury vacation. She seamlessly coordinated a multi-destination vacation including resorts, transfers, activities, dinning, etc. The personalized service, insider knowledge and perks Tracy provided at no additional cost to us is priceless. We look forward to having Tracy plan our next trip."

- Andrew, booked travel to Massachusetts with Tracy in August 2023

“I can’t imagine this trip without Katrina. From the start she listened and gave me EXACTLY what I asked for — while keeping to our price point. She checked in and gave many options for tours and hotels. Katrina found this hotel and it was an incredible find.”

- Anita, booked travel to Rome with Katrina in June 2023

“Randy was absolutely phenomenal! I cannot stress enough how incredible he was in making our booking process an absolute breeze. He went above and beyond to ensure that everything was smooth sailing from start to finish. He meticulously arranged our bookings at the most fantastic restaurants, ensuring we had the perfect times to savor our meals each evening. He had this incredible knowledge of the ins and outs of Virgin sailings, and his tips and recommendations added an extra layer of excitement to our journey. We couldn't have asked for a better guide through this incredible experience. Trust me, you won't be disappointed!”

- Richard, booked a Virgin Voyages cruise with Randy in July 2023

"My husband and I had a great experience working with Mary while planning our honeymoon in Italy. She recommended the resort that we ended up staying at in Tuscany and it was the highlight of our trip! Not only did she help us with our resort reservations, she also helped us with planning our entire Italy itinerary with recs on popular restaurants and activities in each city. We will be booking with Mary for all of our future vacations!"

- Allison , booked travel to Italy with Mary in August 2023
