Advisors have access to editor-curated itineraries and branded marketing opportunities, Travel + Leisure said. They can also set their own commission rates on hotel, car rental and activity bookings.

Air, hotel, activities, car rentals and bundled packages are available to create customizable itineraries, said Travel + Leisure. 

Current itineraries include an opportunity to celebrate Fashion Week in Paris, Milan or New York; handpicked moments in Mexico, Travel + Leisure’s Destination of the Year; and experiences in cities such as Amsterdam, London and San Francisco.  

“The launch of Travel + Leisure GO for Professionals is the next step in our vision to connect the magazine to every touchpoint along the travel journey — from inspiration to planning to booking,” said Fiona Downing, chief membership officer of Travel + Leisure clubs. “Now, we’re giving advisors the opportunity to leverage the trust, authority and accessibility of the Travel + Leisure brand to their client base.”
