Valerie Angello of Angello Luxury Travel is your go-to local source for all things travel-related.
When you see the label “luxury travel,” a certain image springs to mind: the wealthy jet-setter, looking for a highly customized travel experience to an elite overseas destination or private resort. If that description suits you, Angello can certainly help you book your next luxury travel experience – Japan is one of her top requests right now – but Angello works to create customized, high-quality travel plans for clients with all budgets.
“Our motto is that luxury travel doesn’t have to cost luxury prices,” says Angello, who serves groups, families, and individuals. “What we can offer are premium properties that can be good for all budgets.”
Angello accomplishes this by working closely with Virtuoso, the travel industry’s leading luxury network spanning 26 countries. As a Virtuoso advisor, Angello works to book clients in five-star, Virtuoso-rated resorts and offers them access to unique experiences they can’t find online or plan themselves.
Angello assists clients in booking domestic and foreign travel, Disney vacations and cruises, which are one of her top sellers lately. “Cruises are becoming the number one means of travel outside of the US because they’re the most budget-friendly and affordable,” says Angello, pointing out that cruises include items that are otherwise booked and purchased a la carte like airfare, hotel, food, and excursions.
While Angello can help you book that once-in-a-lifetime trip to Japan or Asian cruise, she can also help you plan that family trip to Disney or find an affordable, luxury hotel on the beach for a weekend at Hilton Head. “I think the thing that makes us different from a ‘brick and mortar’ is that we’re more of a ‘boutique’ style service,” says Angello, who operates out of her Mint Hill home. “We’re really about customizing the trip to make it the experience the client wants and not just another vacation in the books.”
A licensed realtor with eighteen years of experience in healthcare administration, Angello has always loved to travel the world. Even when she was working three 15-hour shifts a week back to back in the healthcare industry, Angello always found herself researching different travel destinations in her downtime and traveling in her time off. “I always thought I would either go into the travel business or retire altogether and travel for a living!” says Angello. “I like variety in my life, which is probably what makes me good at my job as a travel agent.”
A relatively new resident of North Carolina, Angello relocated to Mint Hill only a year ago to be closer to family. She chose Mint Hill for her home and business because she loves the community here. “We are very passionate about blooming where you’re planted!” says Angello.
