Over thirty years ago, Valerie Ann Wilson, having lived overseas and as an international traveler, decided to open a travel consulting firm to offer what she believed was lacking in the industry... first hand knowledge and dedicated service. With high regard for personal attention to detail and customer service, Valerie Wilson Travel, Inc. is one of today's largest private, women owned, debt free and family managed travel consulting firms in the United States.
Headquartered in New York City, with an international client base, we currently have 15 offices located in the Northeast and Southeast corridors, in the Midwest and now on the West Coast. VWT's team consists of a diverse and highly specialized network of 300 Travel Consultants and Associate Agents each bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience as travel experts to our company and ultimately our clients.
VWT's continued growth and industry standing is regularly measured through industry ratings such as Travel Weekly and Business Travel News in their annual lists of "Top 50 Agencies," ranked 30th largest and "Top 40 Corporate Travel Agencies in the U.S.," ranked 22nd largest in 2012 respectively.
Valerie Wilson Travel, Inc. services a global clientele for both their personal and business travel. We handle the travel management needs for companies and organizations in industries as diverse as fashion, publishing, finance, new media, not for profits and pharmaceuticals.
Today, Valerie Ann Wilson co-owns Valerie Wilson Travel, Inc. with her two daughters, Jennifer Wilson-Buttigieg and Kimberly Wilson Wetty who serve as Co-Presidents. Together, these three women are often quoted in a variety of publications such as The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure.
