Disney Director Departs To Open Luxury Travel Agency in Celebration, Florida
Victoria Hardison-Sterry, a former Disney director, has opened Luxury Edition Travel, LLC in Celebration, Florida. Hardison-Sterry was formerly Sales Director for Disney Destinations and spent 18 years with The Walt Disney Company.
Luxury Edition Travel (LET) will provide a service to discerning travelers nationally, seeking unique experiences while removing the burden of constructing a trip themselves. Adding a professional Travel Advisor to the mix saves the traveler hours and hours of researching blogs and travel sites, provides the traveler with continuity and well-thought-out experiences, and most importantly, creates lasting memories.
“We’ll be creating ‘LET Experiences’ that are relevant, exclusive and personalized to each traveler,” said Hardison-Sterry. “Charmed moments will be built into each itinerary as an added LET touch.
”The luxury travel market has seen immense demand and huge growth that is expected to increase in the years ahead, according to Allied Market Research in their industry forecast through 2022.
“Understanding that luxury means different things to different people is never truer than today. As an emergent middle class seeks the material aspects of luxury travel, the more mature markets are craving a new, evolved kind of luxury. This is why offering luxury experiences is becoming more crucial year after year,” she said.
The mission of LET is to provide distinctively “LET experiences” for the luxury traveler that not only focus on the destination but the overall experience. As an expert in the travel industry LET will be able to foresee opportunities to enhance each encounter. LET will be known for providing exceptional, first class service that affirms the trust the traveler has placed in the agency.
“The LET team will also be problem solvers; thinking around corners so our customers will feel assured their time, money and vacations will be well spent,” said Hardison-Sterry. “Relationships make the difference and my team looks forward to travelers counting on us for taking care of the details as well as going beyond.”
