Fly with a good airline
Luxury air travel has come of age. Gone are the days when a leg rest and personal screen were enough to constitute the first class air experience. Today, we have witnessed the proliferation of airline beds, private cabins, and even full length beds for couples in the plane. It is not just about flying, it is flying on cloud nine!
For the best of luxury, there are a few brand names that have set themselves apart. Emirates Airlines, as the name suggests, has lived up to its royal billing. Virgin Airlines have been tried and tested, consistently emerging among the top airlines in the world. Recent entrants Qatar Air too have quickly established themselves. Others include Lufthansa, Singapore Airlines, even Cathay Pacific. While this list is by no means exhaustive, these are some of the biggest players in the market today. For an even bigger taste of luxury, try out private luxury jet services.
You can expect first class cabin crew, ergonomic state of the art cabins, tasteful menu selection, and sky high fares too!
Take luxury tours to explore the area
Wherever you go, you will almost always find a luxury service available to help chauffer you around. From India’s backwaters to tours of the British Isles, Moroccan desert trips to South Africa’s game reserves, luxury services are almost always available.
A luxury tour will help you drink in the area’s unique culture while on the lap of luxury. Take for example the luxury train tours available in India or Russia. These majestic “hotels on wheels” give you world-class service and 5-star accommodation while you enjoy the scenes on transit. On safari drives, air conditioning, expect complimentary wine, game dinners, attentive staff, and exciting times. In a luxury tour, you get a personal guide to take you through your experience.
No expense is spared to make sure that you are comfortable as you enjoy the area’s sights and sounds.
Go with a specialist tour operator for your destination
Planning a luxury experience can be taxing (and expensive!) so leave it to the experts. Let a specialist tour operator deal with the headache of tailoring your itinerary to your luxury demands. You, sit back and enjoy.
A tour operator will handle all the nitty gritty details for a luxury tailor made holiday so you can sit back and relax: help book your flight, arrange your airport transfer, sort out your hotel stay, get you a good guide, and ensure that your stay is generally trouble free. A luxury tour operator goes beyond that. They provide you with unique experiences and luxury facilities beyond the reach of a normal tour operator. Get private meals in off-limit areas, or tour restricted tourist spaces opened up by the connections wielded by your operator. Imagine dining with local celebrities, or receiving complimentary access to an off-boundaries cathedral. Such is the power of a luxury tour operator.
What’s more, they provide you with access to prime tourist property, including exclusive cottages, in-demand water villas, and luxurious sailing boats if you fancy. They even arrange bespoke hotel pickups complete with limo or helicopter reception. Indeed, nothing is too much for their client.
