About Gifted Travel Network

Since the beginning, our mission of cultivating success through travel entrepreneurship has never changed. We are educators and community builders at our core.

Our network continues to be recognized for having the most engaged, passionate, and dedicated advisors in the industry.

The seeds were planted for Gifted Travel Network long before our founding year in 2013. Our far-from-average entrepreneurial journey started with nothing but a lot of passion, good ideas, and a clear vision that we could make a difference in the industry.  

In 2023, Gifted Travel Network celebrated a milestone 10 year business anniversary and secured the #10 spot on the Charlotte Business Journal’s prestigious ‘Fast 50’ List of Fastest Growing Private Companies.
