Do you remember when Kim and Kourtney Kardashian had the reality season opening with them getting out of helicopters dressed in evening gowns? If you’re like most of the free world, you probably looked at that and thought, “That is the kind of life that I’ll only be able to dream about.”
Yes and no. You might not ever become the kind of person who makes millions of dollars so that you can fly in private jets on a whim as you drink the finest champagne while draped in diamonds, but there are things that you can do that will make you feel like you are traveling as an A-list celebrity.
If you don’t believe that’s possible, keep reading:
In This Post:
Go somewhere exotic.
Who doesn’t go to Cancun or Jamaica? A part of what can make you feel “unlike the masses” is doing something differently than what everyone else would. Thanks to the power of the internet, it only takes a few minutes to go to your favorite search engine and type “exotic vacation spots” in the search field. You might be surprised at what comes up and if you go during an off-season, you can usually get a really good deal.
Plan an all-inclusive vacation.
There are a lot of celebrities who go to resorts when they want a little time off. You can too. Just make sure that you speak with a travel agent about booking a package that is all-inclusive. That way, you can pay less to stay in a five-star place and oftentimes your flight, meals and even transportation will be included in the rate.
Presentation is important, right? So, why are you still traveling with that beat up roller bag? No matter what tax bracket that you fall under, you can always invest into some quality luggage. Overstock and Discount Luggage are two websites that provide quality luggage at reasonable prices. (You can even go to RetailMeNot to get promo codes for more discounts and perhaps even free shipping).
Upgrade your flight.
As they say, the journey is just as important as the destination. Sure you can get some limousine service to take you to and from the airport in order to feel like you are living the celebrity life. Yet, don’t forget to also look into upgrading your flight to first class. You can do this through a travel agent, the airline or the customer associate at the ticket counter. As far as how you can pay for it, well, you can simply purchase it out right, you can use your frequent flyer miles, or you can purchase a full fare couch ticket and then make the request for a first class seat.
Use an alias.
If you really want to make it a “pretend I’m famous” kind of trip, do what a lot of the celebrities do and register at your hotel under a different name. Chances are, most of the people who would try to reach you would call you on your cell phone, anyway. It’s just another way to feel “famous for a day” (or week). Enjoy your trip!
