Imagine this: you are on the most relaxing vacation of your life. No worries, no responsibilities, no unchecked items on your to-do list. Your house is fine, the stove is off, your pets are well-fed, the lawn is mowed—everything is taken care of exactly as you would have done it. On top of that, your reservation for dinner this evening is booked, your driver will arrive exactly on time to pick you up, and your tickets to the concert later in the evening are already purchased and awaiting you at the box office. The only thing for you to do is be completely, 100% present to enjoy the moment.
If this scenario sounds too good to be true, that’s probably because you’ve never worked with a company that provides travel concierge services before. It’s the little things (and the big things) that matter
There is no real definition or value that can be placed on a personal concierge when it comes to travel. The services we offer are as limited or as far-reaching as you choose. Whether you want to extend a work trip into a luxurious long weekend or whether you wish to travel the world, it makes no difference. A personal concierge can assist in every aspect of the travel experience, from pre-planning to post-trip recovery and everything in between.
6 Ways Your Personal Concierge Can Make Your Next Trip Luxurious
Researching and planning your trip
Do you want to stay in the cottage by the ocean, the convenient hotel near downtown, or the bed and breakfast next to the vineyard? Planning a trip can sound fun at first, but it can quickly become time-consuming and overwhelming as you are confronted with the multitude of options to choose from and all of the fine-print details required to make your trip a success.
A personal concierge helps you cut through all of the planning stress and clutter, and we help you customize the very best trip, suited to your personal tastes and needs. Whether this means researching and planning your entire trip or just handling the parts that you wish to delegate, we operate under one simple principle: “We are here to help and serve you.”
Packing and preparation
The days leading up to your trip are often the busiest time in travel preparation. If they are not managed properly, they can cause worry, stress, and anxiety—all of which can lead to a less-than-ideal start to your travel experience and can even deplete your immune system, increasing your chances of contracting an illness just before or shortly after you leave.
There are often so many things to remember to do, and placing this entire burden on yourself is a sure-fire way to burn out (even more than you probably already are from the demands of daily life). A personal concierge can deliver immense value by developing and executing a travel preparation plan and helping you dot all of your i’s and cross all of your t’s. You simply delegate and focus on getting yourself into the travel mindset. We will handle the rest!
Transportation and local assistance
The unfamiliarity of a new place can be daunting. You may not know the roads, the local customs, or perhaps even the language. However, this should not keep you from enjoying yourself. As your personal travel concierge, we can coordinate local experts to meet you and guide you throughout your trip. We can identify and source trusted drivers, translators, and guides—all to help you successfully navigate your way in a new place. Again, your job is simply to enjoy the journey.
Accommodations, reservations, and more!
Probably one of the most exciting benefits of using a travel concierge is not having to worry about the fine-print details: hotel and restaurant reservations, airline tickets, currency exchange, vehicle rental, etc. As your personal travel concierge, we handle all of this for you and more. Anything and everything, whether that’s arranging for your bags to be delivered to your room, scheduling shuttle services, or managing room service from afar. By making the detailed decisions easy and convenient for you, we free up your mental space so that you can fully absorb yourself in your surroundings and get the most out of your trip.
Everything while you’re gone
Most of the stress people experience while they are away relates to their responsibilities back home: the pets, the lawn, the home security system, that leaky faucet. While you are away, these should be the last things on your mind, and your travel concierge will be your greatest ally in making this a reality. We will handle all maintenance, upkeep, and around-the-home tasks while you are away so that you can have your mind fully at ease and focused on the purpose of your trip.
When you return
A personal travel concierge can also alleviate many of the stresses associated with the returning home from a trip, such as transportation home from the airport, unpacking, preparing your home for your return, or any other tasks required to help you get settled back into daily life at home. Whatever it may be, we are here to serve you.
