BESPOKE FAMILY TRAVEL

I design unique itineraries for curious families

Armed with a mobile phone and a laptop, I use my passion, extensive connections and wide knowledge about destinations to design authentic and personalized itineraries for families of all shapes.

I am part of 360 Private Travel , an exclusive network of private travel designers with whom I share in-depth knowledge and planning resources on a daily basis. We do not have set contracts with any properties, meaning that I have full flexibility in the itineraries that I design. Also, as a member of Virtuoso , I have access to rates and benefits at some of the finest hotels in the world. 

I only work with a small number of clients and it is important for me to get to know you really well. It usually starts with a conversation over a video call. Once I understand your tastes and budget, I work hard behind the scenes to dig those special places and experiences that will make your travels uniquely yours.   

how does it all work

Travel Design Pricing

SIMPLE HOTEL RESERVATION:

no fee

If you need advice on choosing a hotel and want the perks I usually get (complimentary breakfast, late check-outs, upgrades..), I will reserve it at no cost to you. I specialize in independent, boutique, luxury hotels starting at $350/£300 per night.

BESPOKE TRAVEL PLANNING:

upfront deposit $250/£200

This is the completely bespoke option if you would like the itinerary custom-designed to you (airport transfers, daily activities, hotel reservations, special extras..) and your budget is at least $5,000/£5,000 per week (excluding flights).

I work with most of my clients on that basis.

ON A CONSULTATION BASIS:

fee $500/£400 for up to 2 weeks

If you would like help with planning a trip but are on a budget and / or wish to book it all yourself, you will get:

  • A preliminary consultation via email
  • A questionnaire to understand your preferences
  • Two trip planning phone calls
  • Follow-up emails with suggestions of hotels, visits, restaurants..
  • When applicable, hotel reservations including any benefits I might get

Will the trip be more expensive than if you book it yourself?

 

If it’s just a hotel booking, no. If it’s a complex itinerary, most likely yes but the benefits are so many:

I do all the hard work for you of researching, comparing, negotiating and booking. Plus, you get on-going access to my knowledge and network both when we design the trip and when traveling.

I can tap into a wealth of relationships through my affiliations with 360 Private Travel and Virtuoso, ensuring you best available rates and frequent perks such as early check-ins, upgrades etc.

Your travel plans are always fully protected financially via 360 Private Travel, through which I receive legal, administrative and financial support. Please review the T&C’s.

Giving Back

 

BozAround donates a portion of the proceeds from your trip to a charity that gives back to the country in which you travel. I am always happy to choose the recipient of the proceeds with you, be it a charity highlighted in The Generous Traveler or an organization that will have touched your heart during your travels.

STYLE

Friends and clients call me their family travel guru. It makes me blush but deep inside, I think it’s true.

I care about creating easy itineraries for the children, while taking you to places that have authenticity, a purpose and great style in mind. 

True luxury is about making time. To be together. To open minds. To discover. To share.

“When we set out to plan our round-the-world trip, I knew the first person I needed to speak to was Vanessa. She has more travel knowledge than anyone else I know. I trust her opinions 100%!”
