The summer travel season kicked off on Memorial Day weekend, marking the start of summer vacation season for many Americans. Although tight budgets and packed schedules can make planning a summer vacation a daunting proposition, a concierge service can be trusted to tackle the challenge with ease.
Concierge companies such as VIPdesk employ expert concierges who are well-versed in planning memorable vacations. No matter the budget, professional concierges can handle all aspects of vacation planning: airline and other travel reservations, hotel accommodations, local tours, family-friendly activities, restaurant reservations and more. For high net worth customers, concierges can arrange for a private tour or guide, recommend “insider” or “hot” venues within destination cities, and provide services which enhance the comfort of the travel experience.
In addition to travel planning, concierges can take care of the special touches that take the stress out of vacationing, such as finding a dog walker at home for customers while they are traveling, a lawn care service to ensure that they don’t come home to an overgrown yard, or grocery delivery upon their return.
Consumers are often unaware that they have access to a concierge service, which is offered by many companies as a customer benefit, or employers as an employee benefit. We recommend that customers research the companies with which they do business to determine which offer concierge service as a benefit – You’d be surprised how many offer this beneficial service to their customers. For example, concierge service is often offered by credit card issuers, banks, credit unions and other financial services companies, residential and commercial property managers, automotive companies, travel providers, hotels, professional associations, and many larger employers.
