5 REASONS TO USE A TRAVEL CONCIERGE SERVICE
Did you know that the term concierge was first used in France around 1697 to mean doorkeeper or landlord’s representative? By the 19th century a concierge was a common sight in all apartment buildings in Paris.
When we think of a concierge service some of us may imagine a doorman in hat and tails, a desk service in hotels that will get you into the best night clubs in town or fill your room with rose petals for a romantic surprise, or perhaps as is more common in todays online world you are picturing an online service that will organise any and all of your needs? One thing that remains consistent throughout time is that the role of concierge has always been to provide a service to another, taking time consuming tasks and logistical problems off the hands of one person into another.
One thing I am sure we can all also agree on is that concierge services are fixtures in the luxury travel and hotel arena, and those providing concierge services pride themselves in meeting the many and often numerous demands a customer may desire... often going above and beyond to provide anything one may desire so long as it’s not illegal or unethical of course.
The concept of pre arrival and travel concierge is becoming more and more popular. With busy lives and a small world due to the internet we value the expertise of those more traveled than ourselves. Not only that but in the busy world we live in having someone else take the mundane tasks off our hands is invaluable.
We take our concierge service very seriously at Amazon Creek and believe that no matter what our client’s needs and wishes are for their luxury vacation, retreat, or corporate event we can use our local expertise and connections to make anything possible. The art of a good concierge service we believe lies in anticipation and knowledge. Knowing our clients allows us to anticipate their needs and our extensive local knowledge means we can match the two things to build the perfect luxury adventure vacations and group events.
Here are our TOP FIVE reasons to take full advantage of our concierge services.
