Travel Agents: Our Partners, Our Friends
VHR, WORLDWIDE was built on the premise that partnership makes the world go 'round. Our Company has always recognized the important contributions made by Travel Agents to our success, and over the years we have earmarked funding to help educate Agency Owners and Salespeople about the 'Villa Experience'. In fact, VHR, WORLDWIDE's familiarization programs ("fam trips") - which highlight the destinations as well as our Clients' properties and services - have been used as a model by tourist offices.
We appreciate that Travel Agents are faced with many new
challenges. Our policies, however, have not changed, and we remain
as committed as ever to you. The written and photographic
information we provide can be tailored to your needs. We are
available to help you recommend the appropriate choices for your
valued Clients based on our expertise. We protect your interests.
Repeat Guests who call us directly are referred back to the Travel
Agent who initially booked them.
As a result, about 70% of our business comes from Travel Agents
(thank you!). We are also delighted that many Travel Agents book
their own vacations, weddings and family reunions with us! A good
number of you have been our partners for 30+ years, and many
have been working with VHR, WORLDWIDE for more than a decade.
Your repeat business is the best barometer by which we can judge
the quality of our service, and we are very grateful for your loyalty.
Excerpts taken from our Guest Evaluations, here's what your colleagues
have to say about us:
"My agents and I have been working with VHR, WORLDWIDE for over
25 years. VHR's team consistently comes through for us with great
ideas, our clients are always happy with the properties we rent for
them through VHR, and this makes Stratton Travel look good." - Mark, Stratton Travel Inc.
(Note: We were saddened when Mark passed away. He was a good
friend and great supporter of our company from the first day we
opened for business. He is sorely missed.)
"I have been on three exceptional fam trips with VHR: Eleuthera,
Port Antonio and St. Croix. Each program was unique and gave me a
perspective of the destination, in addition to seeing the properties,
that I would not have accomplished on my own. I have been
working with VHR for over ten years and consider this company
tops among suppliers. I find that any time I need help with a villa
or apartment rental, my client's query is handled quickly, efficiently
and professionally." - Barbara, Aries Travel
"Yet another happy client...!" - Judy, Owner, Wilton Center Travel
"We have been working with VHR, WORLDWIDE for about 20 years
now. Not only have we reserved their properties for our clients, but
we have also booked them for our own family. VHR is very dedicated
to travel agents as shown by the company's involvement with AWTA
and NY ASTA. We can always count on VHR to be a supporter of the
trade shows, venues and other industry events that the organizations
in our area hold. No other villa rental company supports the travel
agent like VHR!" - Terry and Charlie, Owners, Empress Travel
"I have been working with VHR, WORLDWIDE for the past 15 years
or more. They are always welcome in our agency as they provide
great up-to-date information about private villas and apartments
that we do not have access to otherwise. VHR has always been there
to help us with VIPS and special requests that might be considered
a problem for other suppliers. I recommend this company highly."
- Jayne, Manager, Liberty Travel
"I was very pleased with the friendliness of VHR's staff.
The accommodations were very nice & in a great location.
All of your suggestions were very good - taking frozen food with
us, etc. I will certainly recommend VHR to my colleagues and the
clients of my travel agency and contact you again."
- Diane, Manager, Travel World
