Subscription services seem to be the next big thing among affluent millennials who enjoy the finer things in life.
First, we had Carro, the Netflix for cars to switch between a sweet ride every month with the likes of Ferraris, Porsches and Maseratis.
Now, we have Inspirato, a travel subscription to stay in luxury homes, five-star resorts and hotels from 200 destinations around the world, all at a flat rate.
From US$2,500 (S$3,400) a month, the Inspirato Pass gives you one active reservation per booking. This can be shared with your significant other, but either of you will have to be present on each trip.
We searched on Agoda for the same Junior Suits in Fauchon l’Hotel Paris listed on Inspirato, and it would already cost you $1,065 a night.
If you’re intending to share with your friends or family, the unlimited sharing for an additional US$500 a month is worth a consider, since a night’s stay in a five-star hotel will set you back at that price.
The subscription fee is all-in, covering your entire stay with no nightly rates, taxes or hidden fees.
There is no cap for the number of stays you can book in that month after every checkout.
This means you could be staying in a hotel up in a mountain in China today, and book a villa in the Maldives the next day.
Joining the Inspirato membership lets you in on VIP treatments such as room upgrades, spa credits, early check-in or late check-out.
A team of professionals will be able to plan your trip, be on-site to meet your needs and manage your itinerary and daily housekeeping at no extra cost.
The membership covers a wide range of activities too, keeping you entertained and busy throughout your holiday.
You can sign up for cooking classes, movie premieres and sporting events to mingle with like-minded Inspirato members.
At the moment, Inspirato has only four Asian destinations, namely Con Dao and Ninh Van Bay in Vietnam; Shanghai and Qing Cheng in China.
So if you’re thinking of getting this subscription for staycations in Singapore, you’ll probably have to wait till they saturate the Singapore market.
