ADDRESSING COVID-19

 

Wondering What To Do During Quarantine?

Why not spend quality time with your family planning something fun for the future!? 

Wanderlist® by Virtuoso is an exciting platform "like Netflix for travel" that allows you to chart your bucket list alongside friends and family with the help of a travel expert. Each member gets their own login so that everyone can participate in creating their own special "wish list." 

From there, we transform that wish list into an actionable travel plan, a unique portfolio custom-created for your family based on upcoming vacation time and milestones. It also acts as a financial planner, projecting investment and savings opportunities.

Plus, it's a lot of fun to see what matches up...you may be surprised by what your children or significant other say! We believe that once COVID-19 passes, the demand for travel will be greater than ever. This is a fabulous chance to really talk to your family about where you want to create memories together and to get a plan in place to take full advantage when that time comes.

 

STEP ONE: EXPLORE. STEP TWO: CURATE. STEP THREE: MATCHSTEP FOUR: CREATE. STEP FIVE: BOOK.
