It saves you time. Your time is valuable and so is your next getaway. Researching new destinations and coordinating all the logistics can be very time consuming and overwhelming. We take the stress out of planning and handle all the details for you. Simply give us your preferences, and we take it from there.
Expertise and Connections. We have insights into the most sought-after locations in the world and have forged a worldwide network of contacts to provide on-the-ground expertise to cater to special interests or preferences. Our connections get our clients rare access to people, places and experiences otherwise unimagined or ordinarily "sold out". We make the impossible, possible!
VIP Perks. Through our affiliation with Embark Beyond, we gain access to the Virtuoso travel network - an elite, invitation-only network of the world's top 1% of travel providers. Our clients receive extra perks and amenities such as room upgrades, free daily breakfast for two, early check-in and late check-out, spa credits, complimentary airport transfers, special welcome treats and more!
Support. We are your best advocate when something goes wrong. Even the most well-planned trips for the most experienced traveler may experience the unexpected, and traveling in a post COVID world means you may encounter even more hiccups and headaches. Before, during and after your trip, we are here to handle any unseen challenges that may arise.
In many cases, you end up saving money and we can match or beat the rates you find. We can work within your budget, and we always focus on making sure that you get a solid value in return for our fees. Unlike booking on your own, booking with us guarantees a VIP experience during your vacation. We have the connections to properly VIP you in advance, ensuring your experience is beyond ordinary. Think room upgrades, free breakfast, spa and resort credits, and various other amenities!
One of the most widespread misconceptions about working with a Luxury Travel Planner is that we only offer value on complex, multi-stop itineraries. However, we can also complete hotel only bookings and are able to add value on practically any luxury hotel reservation thanks to our access to the Virtuoso network and preferred partner programs with the finest hotels and resorts around the world, which translate to benefits like upgrades, complimentary breakfast, resort or spa credits, exclusive amenities and more. Be sure to take advantage of these exclusive benefits simply by booking through Bluvari Travel! Book your hotel here.
While the amenities are similar, the biggest difference is the personal relationship and human connection. With Amex FHR, you will always be getting a call center, with a person on the other side who doesn't really know you as a person or your preferences. The relationship-building aspect of the experience is lost. On the other hand, we will know your preferences, and anticipate your needs to curate a one-of-a-kind experience to your exact desires, without you having to lift a finger or constantly remind us of what you're looking for. We know what you want and will work hard behind the scenes to make sure everything is executed perfectly. The meticulous attention to detail and the personal knowledge of you and your likes/dislikes are what will set the experience apart from any other way of booking travel. With us, YOU will be recognized on arrival, not your card.
Travel Design Fees
As with most travel planners within the industry or any business that provides a service, we do charge travel design fees for select services. We work on a consultative basis to design luxurious trips that are tailored to each individual client’s unique tastes, preferences, and travel goals. The process of researching and putting together a customized proposal that matches your travel goals takes time. On average, we spend anywhere from 10 - 30+ hours working on a trip from initial consultation through the conclusion of your trip. Our travel design fee covers our initial consultation and the time spent researching, developing, and revising a custom itinerary, booking and managing the components, and support while traveling. Please note - because of this, these fees are non-refundable and will be charged regardless of whether a trip is booked. If your trip is canceled for any reason, we understand, and we are happy to apply your fee towards a future trip with us booked within 24 months. More information on our services can be found here.
Bookings / Reservations
Commissions may be paid by hotels, cruise lines, and or tour operators. Our commission comes from our partners directly on the backend. You are not paying anything extra on the front end to work with us.
We work with all sorts of clients (individuals, couples, families, groups, etc.). Our ideal clients focus on value rather than cost. We will work with any budget, but where we provide tremendous value and expertise is with high-end hotels and resorts, creating complex itineraries, and rare access experiences and special requests.
