West University Travel is an upscale, luxury, boutique travel agency centrally located in the affluent West University area of Houston, Texas. As a member of the prestigious Virtuoso international travel network, we offer our travel clients outstanding guidance, upgrades, perks and insider connections that elevate our client’s travel experience and satisfaction. Our travel advisors have worldwide access to the finest luxury travel providers and resources, and can communicate with them straightaway to secure the optimal rates, upgrades and amenities.

If you are currently selling upscale travel and are interested in joining the West University Travel advisor team of independent contractors, we’d love to hear from you. Our advisors typically have 50-100 affluent client households, for which they arrange travel multiple times per year.

For travel advisors who are new or fairly new to selling travel but are very well travelled and knowledgeable, West University Travel can provide training to transition the translation of personal experience to customer sales and satisfaction. For veteran travel advisors who are looking to add to their client roster, West University Travel can qualify you for the lead generation program - another additional benefit of being a part of the West University Travel team and the Virtuoso network.

And, you don’t have to live in the Houston area to be a part of the team.
