The team behind Luxury Travel Diary and the Luxury Travel Diary Auctions have now launched Luxury Travel Concierge.

What is Luxury Travel Concierge?
Luxury Travel Concierge offers a personalised booking service with 95% of our rates beating Booking.com, Expedia.com, Kayak.com, HotelsCombined.com and in fact all the other openly available online travel agent rates.

Who should use Luxury Travel Concierge?
Everyone who books hotels online. If you are planning to book a hotel stay online, check with Luxury Travel Concierge before making your booking. In 95% of cases, Luxury Travel Concierge will be cheaper. (If you have any upcoming stays already booked at hotels that are refundable, it is also worth checking rates with the team at Luxury Travel Concierge as we should be able to make you a significant saving).

What Hotels Do You Feature?
All the hotels that you would find on Expedia.com, HotelsCombined.com etc.

How much can I save?
That depends on the hotel and the dates you are booking. Let us take some examples:

Can I collect hotel points and will my loyalty status apply to bookings?
As with all online travel agents (booking.com, expedia.com etc) hotel chains don’t generally give points or elite night credit for third party bookings. Starwood, Hilton and IHG don’t usually honour elite benefits on third party bookings while Marriott, Fairmont and Hyatt usually will. You will need to call the individual hotel to confirm whether your status will be honoured. For bookings with Four Seasons and other luxury chain properties, this becomes less relevant.

What’s the catch?
There is no catch. Luxury Travel Concierge buys hotel stays in at wholesale rates and keeps overheads to a minimum. Because we don’t spend on huge TV marketing campaigns and instead get our customers by word of mouth, we can pass better savings directly to our customers.

What Is The Booking Process?
Simply fill out the form on our concierge page with your name, the hotel you want to stay at, the dates you want to book and one of our travel experts will come back to you with our best rate. If you want to go ahead with the booking, the team will invoice you by paypal detailing the booking. Once you have paid the booking will be confirmed via email.

Can I Cancel My Booking?
As with bookings made with all online travel agents, each rate will come with a different set of terms and conditions. These will be detailed in advance of your booking. If the rate you book is fully refundable then we will refund you in full if you cancel within the specified dates.
