Four seasoned travel professionals—Heather Solish, Ania M. Wroblewska, Jennifer Anderson and Jackie Cittone Magid—have joined forces to create a new luxury travel company, Worlds Away Travel LLCP. As independent luxury travel consultants under the same former Virtuoso host company in New York City, each joins the company with their own established independent travel business.
The new umbrella company, according to Wroblewska of Polished Traveler in the pess announcement, Worlds Away Travel, will be a “modern travel collective.” Plans include “building a hosting platform for independent contractors, expanding a donor travel arm and curating more original travel content, while continuing to create extraordinary, personalized travel experiences for discerning clients.”
Solish, of Heather Solish Travel, said, “COVID created an unforeseen opportunity for us to step back and reevaluate our businesses, assessing how we could be more productive and create more value to our clients. We all collaborated often and had all these amazing ideas we wanted to implement.”
Reserve Travel’s Anderson added: “We realized pretty quickly that establishing our own company as equal partners would be much more powerful than working in silos. Pooling our resources, leveraging our different skill sets and contributing our different areas of expertise allows us to work smarter and more productively.”
Magid, of Inviato Travel, explained that each advisor will retain their independent luxury travel businesses and identities to our clients. In addition, Worlds Away will be an independent affiliate company under host company Travel Edge in New York. Magid noted Travel Edge’s support team, advisor resources, supplier relationships and technology for why they opted for the host agency.”
