Oetker - Pearl Program

Can anyone recommend a reputable and responsive travel advisor who is a member of the Oetker Pearl Program?

I have a number of stays coming up and unfortunately my travel advisorís company has lost their Pearl designation (largely a US-focused company).

Any help would be appreciated.

The Mod used to keep THIS THREAD WIKI sorta up to date as to who was active
But based on my understanding of the various members here only @DavidO or myself would be in the Pearl Program
but to be honest, the other active members here are well respected across the industry and probably could help you no matter the true designation of any given program. @BESVISOR seems to have taken over as the fav lately on these pages.

@yhm85 As DavidO and ABG both belong to the Oetker Pearl Program you're after, I'd say that's a no brainer.

As @ABG mentioned, there are a lot of advisors on this forum who are great and can easily add value and help

Cheers and safe travels!

Any Brownell TA will have access to Oetker Pearl amenities; they automatically apply when a Pearl agency's IATA is on the reservation.

Other active FlyerTalk agents from Brownell include KristenNix and Nick Running (don't know his screen name).

I would highly recommend a chap called Emyr Thomas. He's super responsive and is an Oetker Pearl Partner (based in London). You can locate his contact details here: Luxury Travel Services from Bon Vivant Travel or PM me for his email address. I haven't yet found a preferred partner scheme that he's not affiliated with! I've also found that he's very willing to 'take over' reservations for you when required. The previous TA I worked with was a bit awkward with this.
