Concierge & Events By Victoria mentioned in Daily Mail
For the 0.01 per cent, booking holiday travel is a far different experience than it is for the rest of us.
Instead of scrolling through holiday deals on bargain-finding websites, these ultra-wealthy individuals prefer to take off on a moment’s notice and sort out any over-the-top accommodations and activities upon arrival.
To get a glimpse inside this elite – and rarely planned – world, MailOnline Travel spoke to wedding and event planner Sarah Haywood, who has helped organise ceremonies and honeymoons for everyone from celebrities to Fortune 500 businessmen.
For the super-wealthy, money is of no concern when it comes to booking private jets and chartering yachts
‘Most of our clients have a private travel consultant,’ Haywood explains to MailOnline Travel. ‘There are several really upmarket agents where you pay a fee annually to have them take care of all your travel.’
Haywood reveals that she often works with these agencies, where she estimates that membership fees for such a service start at about £50,000.
‘These aren’t companies you’ll find online,’ she adds. ‘The people that they’re working with don’t plan and they expect things to be catered to their whims.’
Victoria Hoffman, founder and CEO of the Miami-based Concierge & Events by Victoria, tells MailOnline Travel that some of the most common last-minute request include special access to exclusive events, such as the Cannes Film Festival, the Academy Awards or tickets to the White House Correspondence Dinner.
