Poor responsiveness, I have reached out through the client portal twice and still have not heard back from anyone. I work for a high end organization looking to establish a relationship with a travel expert for group travel. so disappointing.

I love the Avenue Two Travel Team. I work with them for all of my travel planning.  Every business trip and every personal/leisure trip.  They always get me room upgrades, better seats on flights, and amenities when I check into hotels.  I highly recommend them for anyone looking to book any travel.  I don't know how they do it but always surprise me with extras that I wouldn't get if I booked on my own. Just a few pictures of a trip they planned for me in Ireland earlier this year!

My wife and I have been working with Marcie Kotler at Avenue Two Travel for many years. These days it's easy to book a trip online but without the experience of a seasoned travel advisor, it's also easy to make a mistake and pick the wrong resort or a flight that has a bad connection at an overly busy airport. We once got a free room upgrade at a hotel in Paris that was the nicest room I've ever stayed in because Marcie had spoken personally to the property manager on our behalf. That is the kind of service that keeps me coming back. Marcie has been an invaluable ally in getting us out of some problem situations. Most recently, Marcie helped us unravel a family trip to Italy that was cancelled as a result of the pandemic. I would have never been able to navigate all the airline and resort cancellation rules to get my money back without an advocate like Avenue Two Travel. There are many great reasons to use a travel agent and many more to use Avenue Two Travel. Ask for Marcie Kotler!

We loved working with this team! Jennifer helped us plan our dream vacation and we we look forward to working with her again!

I want to take the time to thank Avenue Two Travel for an outstanding job during the corvid19 crisis. In particular, travel agent Carissa Cummings always finds a way to get the job done. With cancellations happening right and left, she displayed her experience, knowledge and sound thinking in securing refunds for her clients. This is one of the many reasons why I encourage friends and family to use Avenue Two Travel and in particular Carissa Cummings. We look forward to booking our next adventure with Carissa.

I have to say that I have only dealt with one travel agent here and she is one of the most unpleasant employees I have ever dealt with at a professional establishment. She makes her customers feel stupid and incompetent. Not a pleasure to book here, not recommended.

Avenue Two Travel Named First Forbes Travel Guide-Endorsed Agency

Philadelphia, February 22, 2023 – Luxury travel firm, Avenue Two Travel , has been named the first Forbes Travel Guide-endorsed travel agency.

Forbes Travel Guide ("FTG") recognized Avenue Two Travel for its leadership in the industry, dedication to elevating the role of travel advisors, support of hotels that have earned FTG Star Ratings and engagement with FTG as a trusted source for objective, third-party verification of exceptional hospitality experiences. FTG is the only independent global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants, spas and ocean cruises.

"We are thrilled to be the first travel agency to receive this prestigious recognition. It is truly a testament to our team and their professionalism and passion," said Joshua Bush, President and CEO of Avenue Two Travel. "As an FTG-endorsed agency, our advisors benefit from a strong connection to General Managers at FTG Star-Rated hotels. This designation also demonstrates to our clients our service-driven principles and singular focus on delivering the finest travel experiences in the world, which are qualities we share with FTG Star-Rated properties."

The agency’s mission is to design authentic travel experiences that make us better global citizens. Since its founding in 1987, the agency has evolved and innovated to fit the ever-changing needs of the traveler while keeping personalized travel planning and white-glove service at the forefront.

"Forbes Travel Guide understands how important service is in this industry; FTG standards are focused 70% on service and guest experience, with another 30% on the facilities. At Avenue Two Travel, we know that service – from the initial stages of planning a trip to the trip itself – can make or break a travel experience," said Bush. "It is no easy feat to earn an FTG Star Rating, and we know that our clients will have an exceptional stay at those hotels."

FTG announced its 65th annual list of nearly 1,400 rated hotels in 81 countries in mid-February. Its coveted Five-Star, Four-Star, or Recommended awards are earned through objective incognito inspections on FTG’s exacting quality and service standards.

“FTG acknowledges Avenue Two Travel’s commitment to world-class service, which complements FTG’s own principles,” said Richard Lebowitz, Senior Vice President of Travel Industry Outreach for Forbes Travel Guide. “Through its endorsed relationship with FTG, Avenue Two Travel completed a range of dedicated training, communications and engagement across 100% of its advisor network that distinguishes FTG Star Ratings as a trusted source of hotels vetted for service and facility excellence. We are grateful and honored to collaborate with the Avenue Two Travel team.”
