Full Service Deluxe. Cruising into Port with  LUXE Travel Management

Full Service Deluxe. Cruising into Port with LUXE Travel Management

May 26, 2017

Full service is a tough term to adequately define. The breadth and scope of it is so far reaching that in certain situations, it can be overwhelming to imagine all the possible combinations playing out: especially when it comes to travel. The variables involved in planning a family trip can often add up to an unbelievable amount of stress - all in order to find a safe haven far from your stresses. Picking a destination, drawing out a budget, deciding on points of interest, museum tours, airline tickets, travel visas, or railway passes, eating out or eating in, grocery shopping, souvenir shopping; hotels with pools or hotels with fitness centers? All before even getting your entire family on board. Each person adds new complexities - like building a rubber band ball that with each layer has an even greater chance of bouncing the wrong way and going through the nearest window.

Craig CarterCraig Carter is no stranger to the requirements of full service travel. Previously with American Airlines, Craig and his wife Amy were transferred to Orange County in 1997. Originally residents of Aliso Viejo, Craig and Amy moved to San Clemente in 2007, just one year before launching LUXE Travel Management. The result of a strong commitment among a handful of travel “pros”, LUXE was both an agreement and a vision: to provide their clients with the most comprehensive travel services available. Drawing from the shared experience of over one hundred travel agents and professionals from across the industry, the team at LUXE builds events, corporate retreats, meetings, group exercises and even worldwide leisure packages from the ground up.

“Our cross section of the industry is very impressive. Everyone says ‘our people set us apart’, but this could not be more true at LUXE,” says Craig. Being an ex-exec himself, Craig knows the ins-and-outs of quality service, and brought together a core management team that hails from virtually every facet of the industry: airline executives, Fortune 500 travel directors, hotel representatives, and private agency owners.

“Yes, we have all of the state-of-the-art industry tools and technologies at our fingertips,” he says. “But we also have a group who chose to leave other positions to form LUXE - and our presence in the leisure travel world has reflected that dedication to excellence and detail by its tremendous growth.”

Portofino ItalyCraig and his family have faced down the trials and tribulations of getting the whole family on board before. So LUXE’s leisure travel sits especially close to home. “Finding something that my two sons, daughter, and wife can all enjoy is a difficult enough task,” Craig notes, “and we love to travel together.”

Scenic Amber Vitality Pool Budapest retouchMulti-generational travel comes with a special set of complications, like the rubber band ball - but LUXE controls the bounce, and can even direct the most varied of energies. “Cruising has become the go-to solution for family reunions and group travel. Everyone from grandparents to grandbabies can find something to fit their own unique needs.” Examples of itineraries LUXE can deliver include experiencing Europe at Christmastime (visiting charming villages and the Christmas markets on a Scenic River Cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam), indulging in an all-inclusive family reunion at Beaches, Turks & Caicos, forging an unforgettable family adventure to Steamboat Ski Resort in Colorado or partaking in a luxuriously pampering Paul Gauguin Cruise to Tahiti.

Rhine DARK SKY smallGroup fares help lower the overall cost, even when you factor in the actual expense covering breakfast, lunch, dinner - specialty dining for kids, age appropriate entertainment, scenic ports with individualized adventures, and on board perks like a carousel for the kids and spa treatments for Mom and Dad. With offices in Boca Raton and Clearwater, Florida, and headquarters in Irvine, California, LUXE offers coast to coast peace of mind for the group traveler.

Lessening the unknowns and leveraging leisure are just side effects of a full service experience. “We expect the unexpected, anticipate your needs, and exceed the expectations you have for your personal vacation. We’ve been where you want to go, and we can help you create a truly one-of-a-kind experience.”

Luxe Travel Club is located at 16450 Bake Parkway, Suite 100 in Irvine. Connect with Craig and his team of professionals by calling (949) 336-1000 or visit www.luxetm.com
