North America

[ ready. set. DISCOVER. ]

The varying U.S. terrain—desert, Rocky Mountains, plains, East and West coasts—reveals something new with every visit, while the Caribbean’s come-hither water is irresistible. And Canada? No wonder Hollywood is obsessed.

Essentials while traveling in North America? We’ve got you covered:

* Expect to be active and on your feet, whether canvassing cosmopolitan cities or traversing the many National Parks. As such, comfort is key—and Americans are quite casual.

* Distances can be vast, so be prepared for the long drives with inspirational audiobooks and evocative playlists (or subscribe to commercial free Pandora and/or Spotify).

* Any and all providers rely on and expect tips for extraordinary service delivery. The industry average is 15-20 percent, so have plenty of cash on hand.

* The best tables book up nearly 30 days in advance, so we highly recommend contemplating culinary experiences in advance. Opentable is a great resource for perusing top restaurants and booking efficiently, however, JETSET also provides a very convenient and reliable concierge service.

* Airports can be a hurdle to navigate seamlessly. Ensure your frequent traveler number is provided and any status with the airlines is relayed so we can extend TSA pre-check to those that qualify. Global Entry is also a worthwhile investment for those who travel internationally frequently.

[ TRIED AND TRUE ]

Jetset has helped us put together two fabulous family trips through the western U.S. With their help, we were able to find experiences and lodging we wouldn’t have found on our own. In addition, their experience helped us shape the trips to meet our style, budget, and timeframes. The follow through and preparation from the team made the trip stress free and allowed us to relax and enjoy our time.
