How to travel to your next destination like a VIP

How to travel to your next destination like a VIP

Travel is an important part of self-care. Studies have shown that going on trips bring a lot of benefits: it refreshes your senses, improves your health and wellbeing, and increases your happiness. So why not make your travel the best experience it can be?

Travelling like a VIP is not as complicated as you might think. Here are a few things you can do to create a splendid and unforgettable travel experience.

Get a local’s perspective

You might have taken the standard holiday tour, where you’re simply whisked from one popular destination to another according to a rigid schedule. While this type of tour gets you to most attractions, the experience is often limited to picture taking and rushed sightseeing.

Globus offers a richer, more authentic kind of adventure. The trips are specially designed to include up close and personal experiences, where you can get culturally immersed and learn more local knowledge and secrets.

The choices range from staying overnight at an authentic French château, meeting an Iditarod champion and their sled dogs in Alaska, living with an Andean family in rural Peru, and more. Whatever your destination is, you can be sure to get more than ‘just seeing it’.

The tour directors and local guides are handpicked from the region through which you are travelling, so you know you’re in the right hands. They will go beyond scratching the surface to help you discover what truly makes each destination unique. Should you have any questions about the area, they will provide their vast insider knowledge and help you make the most out of your free time.

Go for the special access

To provide the most seamless, enjoyable experiences, Globus has prepared special VIP access for most of the tour trips. This means you will be at the front and centre of more sights and excursions, as well as special behind-the-scenes experiences to allow you to take in all the customs and flavours of each stop. With VIP access, you won’t have to wait in long lines to enjoy what every destination has to offer. Why spend time queuing up when you can spend time basking in the views of Michelangelo’s masterpiece ceiling paintings or the Baroque stuccos in St. Peter’s Basilica? Even better, you can document the whole journey with the GlobusGO app, a digital combination of travel guide and journal. Taking trip notes, snapping pictures and sharing your experiences to friends and family are made easy with the app, which works without WiFi or cellular data.

Don’t settle for less

Details and logistics are some of the holiday matters that VIPs would not deal with – so neither should you. Globus has it all prepared from the sunrise to the day’s end. Getting from A to B in style will not be an issue with a deluxe motorcoach, equipped with free Wi-Fi and extra leg room for the ultimate relaxation. After a long day of travelling, you will be welcomed to a comfortable first-class hotel room.

With 91 years of experience, Globus understands that travel goes beyond just being there. With a range of carefully curated experiences across Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas, discover a trip to remember.
