Traveling is a luxury all in itself. Do you know how many people there are in the world who have never left their hometown, ever? As shocking as it may sound, there are tons of people who have never left the city where they’re from.
To the jet setting traveler, that’s just plain sad… But what about those who do travel and actually enjoy it? Those people may enjoy traveling, but the real question is whether or not they’ve actually experienced traveling…
You might be someone who has been on a plane before or been on plenty of road trips, but in those travel ventures, can you honestly say that it was an experience? Was there anything truly memorable about your travel experience?
For the average traveler, they might say that they really enjoyed the peanuts or the cookies they were served on the plane. Or if they’ve been on road trips, the best thing they experienced was the air conditioning… Those amenities are fine for lots of people but during your traveling adventures, you have to travel in style at least once in your life.
You don’t necessarily have to invest $500,000 on a travel van like Beyonce and Jay-Z but there’s also way more amenities than air conditioning when riding on a bus or van. Whether you’re in your 20s or 60s, you deserve to enjoy the luxuries of travel. And the thing about it is that these luxuries aren’t extremely expensive either…
A lot of times, you would need to pay a little bit more money to enjoy the travel perks of comfort and style. But even in doing that, it’s well worth the extra money you spend on it. Whether you’re a seasoned traveler or not, you need to be well aware of the luxuries that come with travel. You don’t necessarily have to travel in celebrity status but there are lavish ways you can travel that are pretty close to it.
“Almost” Celebrity Status Travel Options
If you’ve never flown first class before, you’re doing yourself a real disservice by not doing so. Flying first-class is a luxury that embodies comfort and luxury in every way. One of the biggest perks is the fact that you are less stressed with airline protocols. Imagine a faster check-in process, priority screening lanes, and being able to get on the plane first.
On top of that, you can’t forget about the free drinks, spacious seating, and over-the-top amenities. Depending on which airline you choose, you have the ability to enjoy a private check-in area with snacks, a private entry area, and high-end dining services. It’s an experience unlike any other. Flying first-class may not be like flying in a private jet but for us regular people, it’s close enough!
Look like a million bucks
Well, if you want to travel in style, you’ve got to look the part, don’t you?
First things first, make sure you have all of your beauty essentials within arms reach. Yeah, you’ll need all of them. Create a list of essentials, and pack them.
When it comes to makeup, you should avoid putting on too much makeup. If your flight is long, and you really want to look your best when you land, then put on makeup when the airport’s in sight.
Avoid wearing too much jewelry. Trust us. Jewelry can damage easily, so pack it the right way. The easiest way to do this is to put it in a pearl folder. A pearl folder can be great for protecting necklaces, pearls, and other large pieces of jewelry from scratches and abrasions.
However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t wear a small birthstone ring or earrings. They’re not that big, and they look amazing. Most importantly, they won’t set off metal detectors at the airport. If you have some time to kill, here’s a helpful article about birthstones, check it out.
Ride in a Vintage Car
Riding in a vintage car to your travel destination is something that’s also a fun and unique experience… It’s also a very luxurious experience as well. When was the last time you ever got to ride in a 1954 Ford 100 or a 1966 Austin Healy? Probably not ever! That’s all the more reason to do it.
According to drivevinty.com, if you own a vintage car, you’ll want to check the tires, get a tune-up, and make sure the brakes are in pristine condition, as part of planning your vintage car road trip. But if you don’t actually own a vintage car, you can rent one from various classic car rental companies. This type of road trip is perfect for a couple’s getaway for parties of two or four, depending on the type of vintage car you go for. It also adds a bit of romantic nostalgia.
Ride in a Charter Bus
When people hear the word “bus,” they automatically get a bad taste in their mouths… They think all buses are the same, and they’re not. A charter bus is nothing like a city or metro bus for public transportation… It’s not that there’s anything wrong with city buses but when it comes to riding in comfort and luxury, charter buses are number one.
Maybe you have a large social group that’s planning a 4-day trip to various casinos. Everyone going could, of course, hop in their own cars and make that trip on their own but it’s a group trip… the idea is to visit the casinos as a group. So what’s the best way to get everyone to the casinos safely and in comfort? Charter buses are your ticket to traveling in luxury and style.
Charter buses are comfortable, they’re accommodating for very large groups, and they’re affordable, especially for larger groups. With a charter bus, you can ride in high-back reclining seats, use wifi and electrical outlets, enjoy TV screens with DVD players, etc… This is nothing like riding on a city bus and it’s packed with all the luxuries you could ever want.
Consider chartering a bus for your next group trip
