New York-based host agency, Fora, has raised the stakes in the world of luxury travel with the launch of “Fora X.” This exclusive boutique luxury travel agency is designed to cater to the highest earners within the company, setting a new standard for affluent travelers and top-tier advisors. Let’s delve into the details that make Fora X a game-changer in the luxury travel industry.
Elevating Luxury Travel with a Selective Approach
Fora X isn’t your typical luxury travel agency—it’s an elite space reserved for the best of the best. As noted by Fora’s Co-Founder Henley Vazquez, this exclusive venture is an invite-only affair for the inaugural class, consisting of top advisors who are not only dedicated to building successful businesses but also nurturing the next generation of travel advisors. A key element is the mentorship program that these seasoned advisors will lead, fostering a community of travel entrepreneurs.
Moreover, the Fora X experience goes beyond its elite members. External advisors who aspire to join this prestigious community can apply online, but the selection process is rigorous. It considers sales history, client reviews, and supplier recommendations, ensuring that only the crème de la crème enter this realm of luxury travel.
Empowering Advisors for Success
Fora’s journey began with a mission to introduce new advisors to the industry and provide comprehensive support. Over time, their community grew, and so did the sales of their advisors. The launch of Fora X is a testament to the journey they’ve taken together. This exclusive agency is designed to cater to the upper echelons of the market, celebrating the achievements of their advisors.
Advisors at Fora X benefit from coaching that covers various aspects, including marketing and financial management. They have access to Fora’s tech-focused platform, which provides essential tools such as “The Vault” (a secure payment card storage solution) and an integrated booking platform. Special access to familiarization trips (FAMs) and industry conferences further enhances their expertise. A private communication channel connects Fora X members, fostering collaboration and shared knowledge.
Transforming Careers and Pioneering Inclusivity
One remarkable aspect of Fora’s success story is the transformation of careers and the drive to promote inclusivity within the industry. Advisors like Nancy Deane and Judy Tudor exemplify this. With no prior experience in travel, they embarked on their entrepreneurial journeys with Fora. In less than two years, they’ve become success stories, achieving sales that rival industry standards.
Nancy Deane transitioned from marketing and editorial to a flourishing travel advisor career at Fora by aligning her passions with her work. Judy Tudor, after 30 years in the child welfare system, pursued her dream of becoming a travel advisor with Fora. Overcoming the intimidating entry barriers, she now specializes in planning inclusive and accessible travel, demonstrating that it’s never too late to chase your dreams.
Fora X is set to launch its inaugural program in January 2024, marking a new chapter in the world of luxury travel. This exclusive agency combines the wisdom of seasoned advisors with the ambition of emerging talents, redefining what it means to offer luxury travel experiences.
