While chartering a private jet or yacht may not be even remotely in reach for your average traveler, there are still many other unique vacation options that are trending among affluent jetsetters that everyday vacationers can gain inspiration from.
You don’t have to be a billionaire to take a cue from the world’s “High Net Worth Individuals” whose ultimate vacation goals have been identified in the below infographic from Going Global TV as being focused on family and multi-generational trips, as well as distinctive experiences like those delivered by luxury cruises and adventure/expedition packages.
Planning for a once-in-a-lifetime experience doesn’t necessarily mean saving up for your own private island. Meaningful travel experiences and experiential offerings at hotels are becoming increasingly mainstream in 2013 as more standard travelers rediscover the emotional and physical benefits of a quality vacation.
What’s more, you don’t have to spend beyond your means just to enable your whole family to participate in the fun either. Affordable luxury options exist worldwide – you just have to be aware of them and know the right tools to help you find them. For example, The Hotel Price Index from Hotels.com has an entire chapter on best 5-star room rates around the world and best star-rated values (i.e. 5 and 4-star rooms for $125 and under!).
