How to use to book hotels with VIP benefits now

As you may know, you can access VIP benefits at thousands of luxury hotels around the world through my affiliation with Virtuoso.

You can get rates and book many of these hotels online, 24 hours a day. That way, you don’t need to wait for us to provide you with the rates.

However, Virtuoso can be a bit tricky because some hotel booking sites don’t have mobile versions.
