Planes, Automobiles and Yachts: Travelling in Style

If you’re scouting for your next lavish journey, close your eyes and try imagining a world where white-gloved waiters serve crisp champagne in cut crystal at 30,000 feet. At the same time, a masseuse works her magic on your tired feet. There are plenty of great journeys to be had; here are a few ways you can travel in style:

Luxury Plane Journeys

The World Airline Awards have been crowning the best of the best in the aviation industry since 1999. The voting is done by the passengers, so the results are all about customer satisfaction. The 2021 awards were tallied from over 13 million survey entries from over 100 different nationalities.

For the sixth year, Qatar has won Best Airline. However, since we are interested in luxury, it is worthy of note that Singapore Airlines was voted the World’s Best First Class Airline of 2021. From exclusive boarding services to a chef-prepared meal made on-board to your specifications, you can be assured of quality.

However, if a commercial airline is too common for your requirements, check out the private jet itineraries offered by Abercrombie & Kent. You could spend 24 days jetting around the world on their Inspiring Expedition with none other than Geoffrey Kent himself. Destinations include Japan, Vietnam, The Maldives, Benin, and Brazil before ending the celebration with a Mardi Gras Gala in New Orleans, all for the price tag of $165,000 per person.

Luxury Automobile Journeys

Ask your friends what they consider the most luxurious automobile journey on Earth, and names like Ferrari, Aston Martin, and Rolls Royce will likely be top of mind. However, there is no better automobile trip for an intrepid adventurer than in an open-air safari vehicle maneuvering through the sandy roads of Africa.

Zambia is a relatively untouched country in central-southern Africa, and the ideal starting point for a luxurious zip around national parks teeming with elephants, buffalo, hippos, lions, and leopards. Your private guide will ensure you are safely driven up close and personal with these wild animals before finding a surreal spot to watch the sun set, complete with a signature gin and tonic in hand.

Luxury Yacht Journeys

The allure of a luxury yacht is more than private chefs and lavish cabins surrounded by the lull of breaking waves. Royalty and celebrities have long known that yacht voyages are one of the few places that provide peace and quiet, away from prying eyes.

In the Pacific Northwest, Emerald Landing offers private moorage for superyachts surrounded by no-climb fences so paparazzi can’t get a glimpse. The private berths accommodate some of the finest vessels measuring 80 to 360 feet. Upon disembarking, your chauffeur-driven limousine can meet you directly at the dock. Alternatively, consider hopping into a private helicopter tour and soar over iconic landmarks like Mt. Rainier and the Space Needle.

Sometimes, the mode of travel is more impactful than the destination itself, so don’t forget that the sky is no longer the limit when it comes to luxury travel.
