When you plan your dream vacation, whether it’s to the American West, the ocean, a cabin in the mountains, or a trip abroad, there are several options to choose from when deciding which vacation rentals to utilize on your trip.
These days, vacation rental business services such as Airbnb, VRBO, and VacayAZ provide much more than just the home or structure in which you’ll be staying. Every year, companies are sweetening the pot with exclusive offerings that come with the home. These can be simple or luxurious. But either way, companies understand that in a crowded market, they need to pull out all the stops to attract more potential customers and renters.
Especially since the COVID-19 pandemic over the past few years kept people locked up inside for a long period of time, people are bouncing back in a big way as far as travel goes. In fact, NPR described the term as “revenge travel”, as Americans are looking to make up for the time they lost in recent years.
It’s similar to why sports ratings are higher than ever because Americans are appreciating them more than ever after the pandemic took them away. Both travel and sports were taken for granted until they weren’t available in our daily lives.
Nobody was used to not having that annual vacation they always look forward to, or being able to meet up with friends and family at the beach during the summer like always. In turn, vacation rental companies are bending over backward to introduce a new line of exclusive offerings that customers will get if they book with their company.
In this article, we’re going to break down five of the best deals offered by vacation rental companies that go beyond the home itself. Keep reading to see how you could live in complete luxury by taking advantage of these offerings.
1. Concierge Services
Having a personal concierge is not only convenient, but it also adds a new level of luxury to your vacation. It’s also safer since you don’t have to worry about drinking and driving when you hit the town or go out with your friends and family. It’s not just having a personal driver either.
A concierge can help you plan certain events, secure exclusive prices, and keep your vacation on schedule and streamlined as they enjoy event to event. You can scale these services to being either just a ride to and from the airport, or opt for on-demand services for a driver throughout your entire stay for anywhere you want to go.
2. Car Rental Services
Maybe you prefer to drive yourself. No problem. With exclusive car rental services, which include Teslas and sports cars, you can experience the landscape of your vacation area from a first-person perspective. If you’re staying in a beautiful location, going on a scenic drive could be the highlight of your trip.
Rent a car you wouldn’t normally be able to drive and spend your vacation driving around in luxury. You can get around easily and in style. Most vacation rental companies can deliver the car to your vacation destination or have it waiting for you at the airport at your convenience.
3. Private Jet Rental
Yes, you read that correctly. If you really want to take your vacation to the next level, many vacation rental agencies now offer private jet rental services. This service is ideal if you have some extra money to spend and want to cover a large amount of area during your vacation. It’s the highest level of comfort. You’ll feel like a Kennedy. Once you’ve committed to this service, treat yourself to comfortable lounge chairs, personalized onboard service, and a range of meal choices that come with your flight.
4. In-Home Massages
During a more low-key day on your vacation, enjoy a day with an exclusive in-home private massage. If you have a vacation that requires a lot of physical activity like walking, hiking, or biking, wind down with a massage that helps you achieve your balance again in the most relaxing way. Even if you’re taking it rather easy on your vacation, an in-house private massage can help with joint pain or stiffness, and boost your overall health in a comforting and luxurious way.
This is a very simple way to take your vacation to the next level. It’s great for parents who need to relax, older guests that need relief from a strenuous vacation, or someone who simply wants to unwind in a new way.
5. Catered Meals
Skip the hassle that comes with figuring out your meals for each day of your vacation. Sure, you can visit town once or twice to enjoy the local flare in the cuisine, but to truly have no culinary worries, enjoy catered meals offered by vacation companies. They can eliminate the need to cook, meal plan, or feed the kids. This is perfect for traveling in a big friend group or for families with several children. Chefs will create an exclusive, visible meal that you and your entire group can enjoy. It’s delicious, convenient, and the ultimate form of luxury, in this author’s humble opinion.
If you didn’t realize all that vacation home management companies have to offer in the modern world today, we hope you have a better understanding of what there is out there. Companies need to stand out and offer something that will catch your eye—like private jet services or a private chef for catered meals. Your vacation is about the experience, not just the location. Choose the coolest experience you can find, and enjoy the extras that the agency offers.
No matter the level of luxury you’re looking for, vacation rental companies offer a slew of exciting and unexpected extras, such as in-home massages, catered meals, concierge services, and so much more. Take your vacation to the next level next time by impressing your friends and family with a luxurious vacation unlike any other.
When your vacation is complete, you won’t want to return home. It can be difficult to return to the real world after a week of unprecedented vacationing with modern vacation rental packages.
