TRAVEL MANAGER & OPERATIONS MANAGER
Bio – Jeff Torres has been with Bruvion for over 3 years, managing travel for many tour clients and productions. He is also the office airline ticketing expert, and is always keeping up with the latest developments in the travel industry. He’s always finding the new things that the rest of us haven’t seen yet!
What is your favorite city to visit? London. It’s not exotic and it may seem overly obvious but there is a reason it’s one of the world’s great cities. From historic buildings to cutting-edge architecture, from simple pubs to sophisticated restaurants, from immigrants to royalty, London is endlessly cosmopolitan.
What is your favorite beach? Maroma Beach in Riviera Maya, Mexico. By itself it’s a fantastic beach but add in the fact that it fronts the Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa and you have an amazing destination. Sun, sand, and water are great but when you add in amazingly warm and sincere service, great food, beautiful rooms with local touches and hundreds of tea lights illuminating the resort at night, you have one of my favorite places in the world regardless of time of day.
What is your best airline experience? I’ve had any number of great experiences in the Premium cabins but that comes with the territory and should be expected. What impresses me is when an airline can manage to make even the economy class experience seem dignified. Singapore Airlines does just that; little details like real glass ware and utensils, printed menus and Singapore Sling cocktails make even economy a pleasant surprise.
What one thing must you have with you when you travel? A good pen. Doesn’t need to be overly fancy but you would be amazed how often people ask for a pen while travelling. From customs and immigration forms, jotting down the number of new friend, sending postcards to loved ones, or just taking some non-Instagram notes on your surroundings it’s endlessly useful.
