The Secret To Booking Luxury Hotels


When you search for a luxury hotel, you would be forgiven for thinking that the best and cheapest way to book your room is on the hotel website. It’s not!

Even though you may be blinded by the banners offering “lowest rate guaranteed”, most of the time, booking via the hotel website is not the best deal at all.


Luxury travel agents like our luxury travel concierge offer extra free benefits at almost every luxury hotel, for no extra cost. This means that when you book yourself into a room direct, you may well be missing out on a free breakfast, free room upgrade, a VIP gift, $100 USD credit to spend in the restaurant or spa. The sad thing is, surprisingly few travelers know how to get hold of these benefits.

How Do I Get Hold Of These Benefits?

Ask for a quote from our agents at our luxury travel concierge. We will outline our best rate with all the benefits we can deliver at that particular hotel, which will almost always be the best deal. You can then do your own research and if our rate and benefits are better, we hope that you will want to book through us. We quote for free so you have nothing to lose.

What Do Our Client’s Say?

Every day we have a new client who is thrilled by the benefits we offer. Often they were debating about which hotel to book and our benefits, the free breakfast and room credit helped clarify their decision. You can read some of our client testimonials here:

“All the benefits of leaders club without paying for it! Love it!” – Steven

“Just wanted to let you know that our first hotel stay booked through you at the Four Seasons Las Vegas went super well. We used to be Platinum Cardholders and got quite used to the hotel perquisites, but that was a while back and it’s absolutely thrilling to have discovered you folks and your service. Thanks so much for making it so easy and so much fun!” – Jerry and Barbara
