Cramped seats, baggage fees and endless delays are the average traveler’s top three woes, according to Tripadvisor. But sometimes your trip needs to be better than average – whether it’s a romantic occasion or a critical business mission. Here are three ways to circumvent common issues and kick your travel plans up a notch.
Avoid cramped airline seats and crowded airline flights with jet rental. Unlike traditional fractional jet rental programs, VistaJet offers a new model: customers pay only for flight time, “free of the responsibilities and asset risks linked to aircraft ownership.” For an annual membership fee, VistaJet members can easily book an entire business jet from its fleet of 70+ new Bombardier aircraft using its mobile app.
Hate packing and lugging a bag through a crowded airport? Skip the schlep with DUFL, a personal valet service that ships, cleans and stores your attire. Just access your personal closet via the company’s app, select your desired clothing, and enter a destination. Your bag meets you there; DUFL picks it up when you depart, cleans everything and returns it to your virtual closet. The company estimates that its service saves travelers between three and five hours per trip.
Bypass endless delays at the taxi stand with GroundLink black car rental. The company’s app enables customers to book and track a luxury car service ride with a professional driver who is pre-screened, properly licensed and fully insured. Known for its consistency, reliability and high-quality rides, GroundLink offers the industry’s only on-time guarantee, backed up by 24/7 customer service support.
Top-shelf services can transform your travel into a VIP experience – for a price. However, while private jet rental and valet parking services can be expensive, GroundLink’s service offers affordable luxury. The company’s transparent rates are “extremely competitive with other black car companies as well as on-demand mobile app services,” according to LoungeBuddy. By eliminating the frustration of ordinary travel, your travel splurge may just become a necessity.
