HOW TO TRAVEL LIKE A VIP
BOOK A TOUR GUIDE. “Even if it’s just for an hour or two; [a guide] will know the best time of day to visit spots, and if there are lines, he or she may be able to help you cut to the front,” says Rebecca Willa Davis, editor-in-chief of luxury-travel website The Glassy. SPEND MONEY ON EXPERIENCES. “Stay somewhere with simple charm and splash out on the chicest beach clubs and restaurants,” says Anthony Lassman, founder of Nota Bene Global, a private-luxury-travel company based in London, England. DO THE AIRPORT-LOUNGE THING. While you’re running around the terminal trying to catch your flight, chances are celebs are chilling out in a top-secret VIP lounge—and you can too. LAX’s Private Suite promises paparazzi-proof privacy along with meals, manicures and even an on-call doctor...for just $5,000 per person. In London, Heathrow Airport’s VIP service will provide you with your own private sitting area while staff members take care of everything else.
