TRAVEL DESIGN SERVICES

I design exceptional itineraries for curious families

I use my passion, extensive connections and wide knowledge about destinations to create sustainably luxurious itineraries for families of all shapes.

I am part of 360 Private Travel, an exclusive network of independant travel designers with whom I share in-depth knowledge and planning resources on a daily basis. I do not have set contracts with any properties, meaning that I have full flexibility in creating tailored itineraries for my clients. Also, as a member of Virtuoso , I have access to rates and VIP benefits in the finest hotels all over the world. 

I only work with a small number of clients to ensure that I give my very best attention to each trip that I create. I care to know my clients really well. The design of an itinerary always starts with a real conversation. Once I understand your preferences and budget, I work hard behind the scenes to curate those special properties and experiences that will make your journey extraordinary.

Travel Design Pricing

SIMPLE HOTEL RESERVATION:

no fee

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

My business is commission-based but the prices to you are the same – if not better – than those you woud get by booking direct. I am never tied with any contracts and as such, I have full independence in the suggestions that I make to my clients.

BESPOKE ITINERARY:

retainer fee of $250/£250 per week of travel

This is the completely bespoke option for an itinerary custom-designed to you (guides, experiences, transfers, hotels ..) and your budget is at least $5,000/£5,000 per week (excluding flights). I work with most of my clients on that basis.

I charge a small upfront fee as a retainer for my services. Should you need to modify or reschedule your itinerary after confirming it, there is an applicable fee based on time spent for doing so.

ON A CONSULTATION BASIS:

fee depends on the complexity of your trip

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 and very time-consuming work 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 tap into a wealth of relationships through my affiliations with 360 Private Travel and Virtuoso, as well as memberships to all the preferred luxury hotel programs. As such, you get best available rates but also the many perks that I receive for my clients such as early check-ins, upgrades etc.

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

WHAT IS CONSCIOUS TRAVEL?

 

I focus on sustainably luxurious itineraries, which means I choose to work with suppliers who all care about making a positive impact on the environment, the local economy and their communities. I am a founding member of The Conscious Travel Foundationa social enterprise established to unite and educate travel businesses and promote travel as a force for good, raising funds for grass roots charity projects around the world.

In addition, 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 am known to be dedicated, resourceful, creative and generous (and a little stubborn too!).

I care about creating easy itineraries for the children, while taking you to places that have authenticity, 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%!”
