What is Affordable Luxury Travel?
Many people think that luxury travel is only for the super-rich tech billionaires operating out of Silicon Valley. Sure, they might enjoy super extravagant trips on super yachts, staying in top tier hotels, exploring islands on private jets while indulging on caviar dinners. But, this is more luxury travel and the luxury lifestyle that goes along with it.
There are many top hotels around the world accommodating these type of people with million dollar rental properties and restaurants serving £10k dinners. But this market accounts for just 1% of the world population.
What about the other 99%?
It would be a shame for the travel industry to miss out on offering the rest of us a slice of the good life. Admittedly, not everyone can afford that type of luxury while travelling. That’s just not how the world operates. But that doesn’t mean we don’t want to enjoy high-class bars and restaurants situated within vibrant, marble interior hotels with the finest attention to detail, tasty food and original travel experiences.
That’s where affordable luxury travel comes in.
Affordable luxury travel is more about the travel experience that people seek when exploring new places. It’s about finding balance with affordability and luxury and deciding where you can cut costs to make room for spending more money in other areas.
This is also something we like to call “living the high life while travelling on a budget”.
We’re that passionate about it, we’ve even published an eBook on it. “How to Live the High Life While Travelling on a Budget” offers exclusive insight on how we travelled the world year in, year out, enjoying a slice of luxury in the UK, Europe and Asia without breaking the bank.
In the space of 24 hours, we found ourselves on an overnight sleeper train from Malaysia to Singapore and with our backpacks in toe, we booked into a futuristic hotel on arrival. For lunch, we grabbed lunch from a local street shack and were sipping cocktails in one of Singapore’s most elite bars by nightfall.
We went from the typical backpacker to the luxury traveller within one day. We enjoyed the authenticity of local life and had a slice of the city’s good life. And that’s what we continue to do each time we travel. We create balance between the two. We cut costs in certain areas so we can splurge in others. And the best bit? We’re here to help you do the same.
