Travel writer Wendy Perrin features about 70 travel agents and other travel experts on the “Wow List” on her website, and that number is expected to grow.

Perrin, the former Conde Nast Traveler columnist, introduced the Wow List on WendyPerrin.com last fall. “Wendy’s Trusted Travel Experts” are vetted destination specialists, about whom readers can peruse a brief profile. 

Travelers can click to contact the expert and read snappily written “Insider’s Guides” in which experts share their top picks — and why they chose them — for places to stay, where to eat, best spots for Instagramming and a wealth of other boots-on-the-ground intelligence.

"The Insider’s Guides make readers understand what these travel experts can do for them, the value they can add to trips, the cool things they can arrange,” Perrin said. “They help travelers learn and understand what these travel specialists can do, how they can improve a trip, how their knowledge and clout can enhance the traveler’s trip. The Insider’s Guides should send more travelers to the Trusted Travel Experts."

Perrin explains on her website how she chooses experts for the Wow List. Travelers who contact an expert through Perrin’s website and decide to plan a trip with that expert receive extra attention, Perrin says. 

“You’ll get priority treatment and benefits that go beyond what the Trusted Travel Expert does for other travelers,” Perrin’s website says. “You also get entered into my trip-monitoring service. I’ll automatically watch over the planning of your trip, and you can reach out to me should any issues crop up.”
