RALEIGH, N.C., Nov. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Travel Experts has been honored by a major industry publication.  In this case, it is the luxury travel magazine Conde Nast Traveler who has named three travel consultants working beneath the host agency's umbrella to its "Top 150 Travel Specialists" list.  The agents are Becky Veith in the Caribbean category, Adamarie King for Mexico, and Katey Hartwell for England.  The list is compiled using input provided by travelers who have used each agent to plan trips to the destination categories.

"We make it our goal to find the best agents and then give them the right tools to truly succeed in bringing the best travel experience to their customers," said Susan Farrell, president of Travel Experts.  "These kind of industry accolades are nice, but really the reward we get out of it is knowing that our work is paying off.  That we are really helping our consultants become the best that they can be utilizing the tools that we have provided to them."

The list is compiled by Wendy Perrin, Director of Consumer News and Digital Community for Conde Nast.  The list is not meant to show the agents who can provide vacations in the listed categories for the cheapest price, but for the best overall travel experience.

This is the latest development in an eventful year for Travel Experts and they have been given numerous industry awards such as a listing on the Travel Weekly 2012 Power List and being named one of the Business Leader Magazine's Top 50 Entrepreneurs of 2012.  Travel Experts is a Virtuoso Top 2 agency and has been for the last five years and was named the top travel agency in the Raleigh-Durham area by the Triangle Business Journal.

"I have been on the Conde Nast Traveler list for 13 years, since its inception.  Being on the list is an invaluable source of third party validation of my travel industry expertise, for the quality of service that I provide, and for the know-how that I bring," said Ms. King.  "Being under the umbrella of Travel Experts means that someone always has my back.  As an independent agent that gives me huge peace of mind, along with all of the other more tangible benefits such as great contracts, ongoing support and Virtuoso affiliation.  Together we make a great team."

Added Ms. Hartwell, "Travel Experts provides a platform from which I can enhance my business.  They provide the systems, strong relationships and name recognition with vendors, the association with Virtuoso and access to their product, accounting support and daily communication and information dissemination.  They are terrific at supporting agents and I couldn't be happier with my association with Travel Experts.  Being on the Conde Nast list is a nice compliment to share with many other specialists that I know and respect.  I have had the honor to be on the list for 13 years and I do get business from being there."
