Inspirato is a private vacation club for luxury travellers who have very high standards for their vacations.
Inspirato says it has launched the world’s first luxury travel subscription service.
Inspirato Pass provides passholders access to over 60,000 worldwide luxury vacation homes, hotels, resorts and Inspirato Only experiences for $2,500 per month, with no nightly rates, taxes or fees.
Members can access five-star hotel rooms and suites, Inspirato luxury homes and exclusive Inspirato Only experiences, like European cruises, African safaris and marquee sporting events, whether they travel weekly, monthly or a few times of year.
Inspirato’s travel specialists can assist with booking, planning itineraries, and addressing guests’ needs throughout the stay.
To book a trip, passholders visit the Inspirato Pass website and browse tens of thousands of available trips in 150-plus locations throughout the U.S, Mexico, Central and South America, Europe, Asia and more.
Then, reserve any available trip, stay and book the next reservation upon check out. The list of available trips refreshes daily, with a continual supply of new choices.
The properties offered are true four-and-five star hotels. Even with the peak travel dates set as filters, there were plenty of options ranging from two to seven nights over the holiday week. But the service is brand new, and it’s unclear how many people will be allowed to join.
If it takes off, it’s possible it will be harder to secure accommodations in the most desirable destinations over popular travel times.
It’s best not to go in with a hotel in mind, but rather shop by style. On Inspirato, there are four “styles” to choose from: Beach, Mountain, Lifestyle, Metropolitan.
Only one person in the traveling party needs to be a pass holder and can have as many people the property indicates it can accommodate.
Pass holders need to check out of one property before reserving another and for that reason, it would be difficult to plan back-to-back trips.
Even if a traveller planned to stay in the same destination, there’s no guarantee a property nearby would be available.
If airfare is required to get to the next destination, some degree of a planning period, a presumably downtime, would be required.
It’s only over a period of time, we’ll be able to best judge Inspirato’s luxury travel subscription service.
