[trip style = luxury]
Want to stay here? Me too. Now you can for less. Here's how:
A new breed of elite travel website are making waves with luxury travel enthusiasts faster than you can say: Singapore Airlines First Class. Likened to Travel Sample Sales by Jaunted (the pop culture travel blog), these invitation-only websites are like the country clubs of online travel booking, catering to the elite, or those who want an elite getaway.
How Members-Only Travel Websites Work
- you are invited to join (don't worry, mine got lost in the mail too, but it was found, so now I'm inviting you via the link below)
- deals up to 40% off, or "prices too good to be public" are offered at discerning properties worldwide
- these deals only last for a limited time (usually 5 - 7 days) and are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis
- previews of upcoming hotel deals are sent via email (if that's your preference)

Your Take & Mine What do you think about these sites? Are you a member? Have you stayed at any of the properties they offer? I've already signed up and look forward to finding the perfect luxury trip style when my schedule permits. The Vacationist's current La Amada Resort offer looks pretty tempting given the hotel's location, decor, free breakfast and wifi, and accolade from Trip Advisor Traveler's Choice Awards as the #1 Spa Hotel in the World. Whether I escape to Mexico or beyond with Jetsetter or Vacationist, stay tuned, I'll be sure to write about it!
