From travelling off-peak to splitting the cost of an epic villa, these savvy travel tips allow you to experience ultra luxury without spending big bucks.

If you’re a lover of the finer things in life but have a budget to stick to, there are a number of clever ways to maximise your indulgence without paying top dollar. Plan the perfect escape and travel in unrivalled style with our insider tips: because you didn’t choose the VIP life, the VIP life chose you.

Travel off-peak & stay at the world’s most luxurious hotels for less

The easiest way to take your next trip to a new level is to book outside peak season. It may seem obvious, but organising your bucket-list escape for the height of Spanish summer or Hawaii’s hot season might blow out your budget. Luckily, the world’s most desirable destinations – and their most luxurious hotels – are often open year-round, with increased availability and prices to tempt the off-peak traveller. By pushing your dates a few weeks, avoiding school holidays or saving your summer sojourn for the quieter months of autumn, your ‘too-good-to-be-true’ ultra-lux options – and the promise of crowd-free enjoyment – are suddenly within reach.

Score an upgrade & bonus inclusions by joining a VIP Travel Club

Live the high life with helicopter transfers & fine dining

One of the best ways to amp up your next adventure is to focus on experiences. If you secure a great rate for your accommodation, you can draw on the extra budget to book in some truly unforgettable travel moments. Perhaps you’ll arrive via exclusive helicopter transfer, reserve a table at your dream fine-dining establishment or leave it all on the table with a proper pampering at the spa.

Find an epic villa & split the cost with family & friends

If you want to squeeze a bit more luxury out of your next holiday, teaming up with your nearest and dearest is a great way to split the expense. Not only a clever cost-saving measure, your shared vacation is the perfect chance to spend quality time with your loved ones in paradise. With a plethora of spacious homes and breathtaking villas to consider, you can lock in the most awe-inspiring tropical escapes and countryside havens for the whole crew at affordable rates, with room, and budget, to spare.

Book an airline lounge (or request it as a gift)

All too often, the act of travelling is treated as a means to a beachside end. However, for those seeking to make the most of every moment, your time in transit can become a holiday highlight with access to the comfort and class of an airline lounge.

A la carte dining with waiter service, barista coffee and stylish amenities to refresh ahead of your flight are just some of the perks available during your time in a lounge. Whether you treat yourself to sophistication or drop some heavy hints for a well-timed birthday voucher, wedding present or unique Christmas gift, your airport lounge experience can set the tone for a spectacular adventure ahead – and an easier return to reality on your way home.
