Fora Travel

    The countdown has officially begun. Only a few days remain in 2022 — a surreal and ever-exciting year for us at Fora. Today, while we tie up loose ends and plan for an epic 2023, we're also getting reflective, looking back at the milestones this year has brought us.

    And what better way to do so than with some stats? (We are a data-driven company, after all). Here's to the new year — this is Fora, wrapped.

    1...Live Forum

    This year marked Fora’s first-ever Live Forum, where 40 advisors from around the world joined us in Williamsburg for three days of workshops, 10 seminars, 300+ one-on-one meetings and no shortage of travel inspiration. Having FOMO? You can now purchase tickets for Live Forum 2023! To learn more, watch our recent announcement.

    3...FAM trips

    One of the best parts about being a travel advisor are FAM trips, or familiarization trips. These are opportunities for advisors to visit a hotel, stay there, explore the property and, well, "familiarize" themselves with it. This year, Fora hosted advisor FAMS in Cape Cod and Montana, and joined several Fora Advisors at Virtuoso Travel Week in Las Vegas. We're already dreaming of where to go next…


    In 2022, we migrated from a WeWork space to a brand-new office all to ourselves  — a bright and airy TriBeCa space.

    Dozens of... Preferred Partners (and growing)

    Launching our preferred partnerships — a special set of our thousands of travel partners — was a special milestone. We are so proud of the relationships we have formed with some of the world's best hotel collections (including Four Seasons Preferred, Rosewood Elite and Dorchester Diamond Club, to name a few). As a member of these exclusive programs and clubs, Fora can help you score VIP perks and the ultimate white-glove treatment with exquisite hotels, cruises and experiences around the globe. And the list keeps growing! Keep an eye on our Partners page to learn more.

    The Fora community extends across the globe, and reflects our shared love of travel and the unique connections it facilitates. Pssst: even more reason to book with a Fora Advisor — what better way to plan the trip of a lifetime than with an in-the-know local?

    80…Hours of training

    Launched in September, our community-first training approach, provides everything you need to know about becoming a travel advisor. We firmly believe that community is everything, which is why we prioritize these small-group sessions with our advisors. Learn from the experts, get all your questions answered and have fun while doing so.  

    105…Hours of onboarding

    Our world-class training curriculum is all about community. When you join Fora, you’re joining a travel-obsessed, global family. 

    121...Countries visited by our travelers

    Thousands of trips, so many countries. This year, the world continued to reopen, and the travel itch, forced to be dormant for so long, could finally be scratched. We certainly saw this reflected in the breadth of destinations our travelers eagerly visited.

    553...Advisor-curated travel guides


    Our advisors have been hard at work curating in-depth travel guides offering local knowledge and expertise on numerous places around the world. Looking for the perfect travel guide to Iceland, or perhaps a guide to Black-owned Amsterdam? We've got you.

    Our advisors booked thousands of hotels this year, from boutique gems and grand châteaux, to classic luxury stays and remote escapes.

    One of our favorite hotels this year was Troutbeck, a bucolic escape in New York’s Hudson Valley. The chic boutique inn also happened to host this year’s company holiday party.

    Don't miss this year’s top-booked hotels in the US and top-booked international hotels.

    40,000+...People on our waitlist

    We are immensely grateful for so much enthusiasm within our community. In 2022, we’ve been working round-the-clock to build a best-in-class host agency for travel entrepreneurs. And we look forward to welcoming even more advisors in 2023!
