Posted on July 13, 2016

EmpireCLS Worldwide Chauffeured Services, a top-ranked luxury ground transportation and executive car service, has been invited to join the prestigious supplier portfolio at Virtuoso, an international travel agency network specializing in luxury and experiential travel.

“Virtuoso’s acceptance process is incredibly selective, so becoming a preferred supplier is a true honor,” said EmpireCLS Chairman and CEO David Seelinger in a press release. “Given the reputation Virtuoso member advisors and travel suppliers have for outstanding dedication to their clients, this is a recognition of our own bespoke approach to chauffeured service.”

In this new partnership, EmpireCLS will create new sales and marketing opportunities in Virtuoso’s network of more than 11,400 luxury travel advisors and their discerning clientele. As one of only two global ground transportation providers in the network, member agencies will benefit from EmpireCLS’s distinct services —chauffeured vehicles, VIP airport greeters, and secured transportation — available worldwide. Virtuoso agencies sell more than $15.5 billion annually, making the network the most significant player in luxury travel.

Virtuoso’s supplier portfolio consists of more than 1,700 of the world’s finest luxury hotels, cruise lines, airlines, tour operators and other suppliers in 100 countries. The company’s unparalleled reputation is built upon selective relationships with travel providers that must meet its exacting standards for creating bespoke travel experiences and maintaining white-glove standards of customer service.
