We make your dreams a reality.

1. Getting to know you

At Jet Set, we believe travel transforms lives. And there’s no one way to approach such a thing. So, the Jet Set process always begins with a consultation where we learn more about you. Because no matter where you end up going, or what adventures you pursue, it all begins with you. No two itineraries are the same. But they’re all unforgettable.

2. Collaborating

We use our deep expertise in travel, planning and lifestyles to custom tailor an itinerary to your unique desires. We consider travel time, seasonality, and budget, but we also explore innumerable possibilities so that you can be confident that your destination, itinerary and experiences along the way are ideally suited to you.

As with any collaboration, the greater your involvement and direction, the more successful the outcome. And the sooner we get started on your journey, the better the results. We can explore unique experiences, uncover once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, and incorporate your preferences.

3. Initiating the plan

After our initial consultation, we will follow up with a simple recap of our conversation to ensure the information collected is accurate, including sample itineraries from the destination(s) we discussed, and relevant online references. The sample itineraries provide insight in to how others have structured their own journeys, and how your own could be similar or different depending on your interests.

Once you’ve decided where you’re headed, we collect Jet Set’s World Travel forms (included below) along with your travel planning initiation fee, and officially commence work on your personalized itinerary.

4. Creating your itinerary

Where you’ll stay is paramount — hotels, villas, remote retreats, etc. So we’ll start with accommodation and then incorporate transportation and touring. At Jet Set, we work in this order so we're able to execute a vision rather than just your average schedule and stop-overs.

Airfare is next since it’s the least flexible. If you’d prefer to use miles/points for your airfare, we will attend to air travel first as the award availability may decide your travel dates.

We collaborate and communicate throughout the process to ensure what we design reflects your vision. Once everything is exactly as you wish, we secure the arrangements with a deposit.

5. Preparing for the trip

About two months prior to travel, we begin thinking about accessorizing — anything from dining reservations to spa appointments to babysitting. These are the unique and intimate details of a trip that make it effortless and inspiring. At Jet Set, we love getting into the details.

When every last “i” has been dotted and “t” crossed, we’ll send the final invoice for our services and prepare the final documentation to be shipped or delivered one to two weeks prior to travel.

6. Deposits and payments

The cost of airfare is almost always due in full at time of ticketing. For comprehensive land itineraries only a deposit is due once the proposal is approved. The amount of the deposit and final payment date are dependent on the destination and travel supplier, but generally speaking, deposit will be 10-50% of the total trip cost and final payment will be due 45-90 days prior to travel.

Our travel planning fee initiates the start of your trip and is paid upfront. Any additional services we provide, like ticketing fees, concierge reservations, or additional research are invoiced once all travel planning is complete, usually a few weeks prior to your departure.
