Premium business lifestyle raises your travel game. Flying Business Class for work, staying in top luxury hotels, and dining in the world’s finest restaurants is a standard that’s easy to get used to.
Which is why it’s important to enjoy the same level of lifestyle services when it comes to your holiday.
But with demanding schedules and little time to research, plan and make reservations, how can you get the most out of your travels?
For those who are short on time, but big on comfort, here are four ways to instantly upgrade your trip:
Turn miles into moments
It’s time to reap the benefits of being a loyal business traveller, by signing up to frequent flyer programmes. It’s not about the points, but the benefits that come with being a premium cardholder. After all, true luxury travel, is about the extra touches that create memorable moments.
Access to airport lounges, flight upgrades, pre-flight spa treatments, and meet and greet at the airport; these are just some of the lifestyle holiday perks that top cardholders can enjoy, usually without pre-booking or organising – handy for busy professionals.
Cover all transport bases
Flights aside, there’s lots of back and forth when it comes to international travel. If you don’t want the burden of car hire and would rather avoid booking local taxis, opt for a chauffeur service instead.
Members of lifestyle management companies will already gain access to this service. For everyone else, it’s a case of finding a chauffeur company that meets your needs.
Call in favours
Reach out to your network of contacts. It’s what business lifestyle experts have been doing for years.
From clients in far-flung destinations to friends living abroad, ask around for local tips, recommendations, and connections. Better still, if you’ve joined a concierge company, these lifestyle services will be included in your membership, offering you an instant network to tap into, and without ever having to call in a favour.
Become a member of a concierge company
According to ABTA, over a third (36 per cent) of people use travel professionals to book a holiday. Be it through a dedicated concierge company like the Ten Lifestyle Group, or through luxury travel companies, there are many good reasons to employ experts.
First of all, a concierge company will get to know your personal preferences and recommend luxury travel ideas to enhance your holiday. Furthermore, they’ll take care of all the booking arrangements, freeing you up to get into the holiday spirit!
But the real reason to use lifestyle concierge services is to get that little bit extra out of your travels. For instance, Ten lifestyle concierge goes beyond simply booking your holiday and look at ways to extend the experience. This ranges from VIP touches to late room check-outs, and securing the best table in the hottest restaurant in town.
Using their trusted network, a concierge company will look for money-can’t-buy experiences, to ensure your holiday is filled with true luxury travel moments.
