We specialize in working closely with clients to customize trips that best suit their interests and preferences. Below is an overview of our fees based on when the trip planning commences.
Our Fee Schedule is comprised of 3 separate components: a Travel Planning Fee, Airline Ticketing Fee, and a Concierge Services Fee.
Custom Travel Planning Fees
The process of researching and putting together a customized, bespoke proposal that matches your travel desires takes time. Our trip planning fee covers initial consultation and discussion of your trip dreams and expectations, time spent researching, developing, and revising a proposal to create the perfect customized itinerary, booking and managing all components, and support while traveling.
Because it covers the initial consultation, research, and time spent on the proposal, this fee will be charged at time of proposal delivery, regardless of whether a client books a trip with us. When, however, a client books a trip with us, this fee also covers travel support during the trip, and booking of the trip itself.
Fees are non-refundable, and will be charged when the proposal is delivered to you.
|Initial Trip Inquiry Made||Planning Fee|
|> 2 Months from Departure||$300|
|< 2 Months from Departure||$375|
|Within 2 Weeks of Departure||$375 + $50/hour|
*The above fees are based on trips under 2 weeks, and for 5 or fewer guests. For more extensive trips and for group rates, please inquire directly.
**Hotel-only bookings and shorter domestic trips may have reduced planning fees – please email me for a quote.
Our Trip Planning Fees cover the logistics of the trip, and include land arrangements including hotels, trains, transfers, and scheduled activities. We are also happy to assist with simple restaurant reservations on-site at a resort or hotel where you are staying for no additional fee.
For our Concierge services, such as local restaurant reservations, extensive scheduling and suggestions of self-guided activities during your leisure time, theater tickets, and other Concierge services such as setting up a special event, our rates begin at $125 per week of travel.
*This fee is completely optional – if clients prefer to explore/make their own reservations for restaurants, theater tickets, and other optional components, it is not charged.
|Administrative Fee (Booking & Research Flights)||$75/ticket|
|Frequent Flier Mileage Research/Booking||$75/ticket|
Additional Day Of Travel Support is available through our Airline Concierge. These fees range from $45 for a domestic roundtrip ticket to $90 for an international roundtrip ticket, per person.
*Clients are welcome to book flights independently, in which case a fee is not charged.
“A La Carte” Trip Components
The best trip is a seamless one, where all pieces and parts smoothly flow together without any confusion. Because of this, we prefer to work on trips holistically, and not just assist with small “a la carte” pieces (such as rental car or airport transfer only). From experience, we have learned that in planning the Custom Trip as a whole, we are able to step in if there are any issues, and ensure the experience is exceptional. This policy also enables us to focus and devote our attention to creating and perfecting your honeymoon, anniversary, getaway, family reunion, Christmas vacation, birthday blowout, and trip of a lifetime!
