US: Luxury travel subscription brand Inspirato has launched a new service, Inspirato Select, for members to buy, use, and share vacations.
The main feature of Inspirato Select is the ability for users to book and share select trips at no additional cost. It providers subscribers with the flexibility to either take advantage of the trip themselves or gift to family, friends or employees.
Subscribers can choose from more than 500,000 trip options in more than 150 destinations, including residences, hotels and resorts.
Examples of trips include:
• A long weekend in a five-star penthouse in New York City
• Four nights in a four-bedroom residence at a luxury resort in Los Cabos
• Four nights in a six-bedroom ocean view villa in the British Virgin Islands
• Nine nights in a suite at a five-star hotel in Chicago
The initial subscription comes with three trips included and then users have the option to buy additional trips when preferred.
Co-founder and CEO of Inspirato, Brent Handler said: “We have been preparing for the launch of Inspirato Select by accelerating the growth of the Inspirato portfolio to record levels over the past year. With incredible pent-up demand, now is the right time to introduce this simple, cost-effective solution designed to help consumers leverage the power of Inspirato travel in all areas of their lives.
“As our most flexible, shareable subscription to date, we believe Inspirato Select will enhance the built-in network effect of our business model by introducing the distinctive Inspirato luxury travel experience to a broader audience of travellers,” he added.
Inspirato Select is available to new subscribers as a stand-alone annual subscription for $24,000 plus a $2,000 enrolment fee. As an introductory offer, subscribers will receive four complimentary Inspirato Select Trips. Further information can be found here.
Packages of Inspirato Select Trips are available to current Inspirato subscribers as an optional enhancement, priced at $20,000 for four trips.
Earlier this year, Inspirato closed a SPAC [special purpose acquisition company] with Thayer Ventures.
