As you charter private jets around the world, are you among the latest luxury travel trend makers? Check out what’s hot this season among your fellow jet-setters:
Younger Wealthy Travelers
Private jet luxury travel isn’t just for retirees. Travel advisors report that the number of affluent travelers between the ages of 40 and 55 has skyrocketed. Not only that, more well-off families in their 30s and 40s are planning vacation and adventure trips with their young children. The reason: they love to travel and want their children to experience the world.
Travel Options from Choice Operators
Big names in luxury are becoming synonymous with luxury travel. The Virgin Group, for example, offers more than cell phones, records and plane rides. You can now look to Sir Richard Branson’s enterprise to plan a vacation or book a room at one of Branson’s portfolio of lavish retreats on a private island, game reserve, tented camp, lodge, or catamaran in destinations like the British Virgin Islands, Morocco, Africa, London, and Switzerland. Film and wine maker Francis Ford Coppola has luxury resorts in Belize, Guatemala, Argentina, and Italy. Abercrombie & Kent has the new Connections line of opulent journeys for small groups to destinations around the world. Charter private jet and discover these amazingly opulent travel experiences.
Luxury travelers don’t want trips to be complicated, so more and more now opt for all-inclusive experiences. One of the main reasons for this is the mess of irritating unexpected fees (e.g., resort fees, cruise line add-ons and airline-fees) that feed travel frustrations. With an all-inclusive experience, you can participate in all the activities and enjoy all the amenities that a resort or cruise offers without wondering how it will affect your bill when it’s time to check out. Plus, you don’t have to worry about having cash on-hand because tipping isn’t expected or required.
Discovering the Hidden and Unfamiliar
Among the affluent, trips to Paris, Hong Kong or the Caribbean are about as common as visiting the grocery store. Today’s luxury travelers earn their bragging rights by traveling to places that aren’t tourist hot-spots…yet. Bhutan, a country surrounded by the Himalaya Mountains, is a favorite destination among travelers because of its isolation. Other hot-ticket destinations include Russia, Cambodia, Columbia, Peru and Vietnam.
One of the fastest growing sectors of the luxury travel industry across the world is river cruising. Today’s river cruises cater to travelers of all ages with features like complimentary Wi-Fi, storage facilities for bicycles and spacious suites. Trending exotic cruises include an Amazon River cruise in Peru and a Mekong River cruise in Vietnam and Cambodia.
The places in this world in which you cannot travel are limited. Thanks to Branson, this list of untouchable destinations no longer includes outer space. Virgin Galactic is the premier company offering suborbital space flights to the public. The trip is more than just a flight; it’s an exclusive experience that includes a G-force training program in a Philadelphia centrifuge facility, a tour of Spaceport America, a stay at one of Branson’s luxury resorts, priority access to Virgin Galactic events, a space suit and helmet, floating in zero gravity and an up-close view of the stars.
