Travel is both amazing and nerve-racking. With Covid rules and travel restrictions changing on a daily basis, now more than ever, travelers are seeking guidance. Imagine if you could become a member of a travel club where you have a personal advisor that is not compensated on commission and whose only goal is to create the most amazing travel itinerary for you. Marchay Travel seeks to be that very travel company.
The company uses a membership model with built in perks. Members can either pay a fee of $2,500 for one trip or $6,500 for a year of unlimited trips. Each member and their family have access to Marchay’s expert advisors and 24/7 support. Your advisor will start the process with an on-boarding call and orientation for both the member and their assistants. That is your chance to describe how you like to travel and what types of activities your family enjoys.
Marchay has advisors with expertise across the globe and a host of local contacts who can make even the most elaborate trip a reality. As Covid appears to be waning, many of us are planning those long-awaited trips to international destinations and are seeking a little something special to make up for lost time. Examples of some of the more exciting evenings Marchay has created for members include a private masked ball in a Venetian palace, an after-hours private tour of the Uffizi Gallery followed by dinner on the terrace of a private Florentine palazzo and a visit to Churchill’s War Rooms. Marchay can also organize a multi-day golf trip to Scotland’s most beloved golf courses, create the perfect, stress-free private jet trip to the Caribbean or arrange a visit to your favorite French wine cellar, with an expert sommelier on hand.
Even if you are seeking help with a more mundane ski trip or beach vacation, Marchay can advise on the best hotels and most fun restaurants and take care of all the annoying details (such as arranging for your pre-departure Covid test). Your advisor can book your flights and transfers and locate the ideal guide that caters to everyone in your party, ranging from history buffs to teenagers. And if you want to stay an extra day or discover a last minute activity that you just have to experience, your travel advisor can easily make that happen.
Being a member comes with other advantages. Members have access to privately negotiated rates at hundreds of international properties. On an average ten night stay, Marchay can save members approximately $2,500-$5,000 on published hotel rates. And because of their worldwide relationships, members can receive a host of other perks, including room upgrades, free breakfast and wifi and early check-in and late check out. In addition, Marchay has access to non-public fares on select international first/business class routes and can arrange for private flights.
If you are finally planning that once in a lifetime trip or ideal family vacation, Marchay can make it a seamless and joyful experience.
