Club Terms & Benefits - Updated 10/1/23
Mr. Travel Agent's VIP CLUB & it's Facebook Lounge
Welcome to the VIP Club & Lounge of Mr. Travel Agent, LLC!
Being a member of the Club offers you access to my mileage program, as well as special personalized amenities and curation charge reductions,
and more based on your club level of travel (5* or 4*) and frequency of travel. There are unlimited tiers to the VIP Club, in addition to the ELITE tier.
The main VIP Club program, is like a luxury hotel! You enter the VIP Club on the ground floor, and your membership is assigned ground floor room, and you earn club mileage at that level, as you conitnue to travel at a certain level several times a year or yearly, as the manager of the VIP Club, I'll upgrade you to Floor Level 1,2,3,4,5,6 etc up to 10th Floor. As you increase in Floor Level, your VIP Club benefits values change. Then there is the ELITE tier at the top, which you can access by paid annual membership to ELITE or earning access to ELITE.
The VIP Club is for assigned to all clientele new & returning for free and awards those who love traveling in luxury and staying at luxury hotels. To gain ground floor access, you must travel for a minimum of 7 nights through Mr. Travel Agent, LLC for your first time at a 4-5* level. This will start your membership in the VIP Club. To which you'll be awarded club mileage, and can build from there. To remain in the club you must travel at least once a year for 7 nights, and add at least 5,000 new miles for those travels annually. Certain aspects of travel will not earn you miles, such as air only, (see list below). Once you have travel either twice in one year, or twice in two years, you'll be upgraded to 1st Floor of VIP Club, as you continue to meet minimums annually you'll continue to be upgraded to the next floor of the VIP Club.
Every Level of the VIP Club starting at the 1st Floor, will give you +10% off all curation charges for all guest traveling on a VIP Club membership account.
You will be awarded a E-Club Pass for one time use. When you redeem a Club Pass, your membership is reset to Ground Floor. So if you travel twice a year for 5 years, you could save your Club Pass until you reach 10th Floor, and then redeem it, and be awarded with curation free travel.
Ground Floor: 0% on 1st Trip, intial membership milage to be earned.
1st Floor: 10% off all curation charges
2nd Floor: 20% off all curation charges
3rd Floor: 30% off all curation charges
4th Floor: 40% off all curation charges
5th Floor: 50% off all curation charges
6th Floor: 60% off all cuation charges
7th Floor: 70% off all curation charges
8th Floor: 80% off all curation charges
9th Floor: 90% off all curation charges
10th Floor: 100% off all curation charges
In Addition Mileage, can be redeem for Floor Level Upgrades:
Every 10,000 miles = Floor upgrade (if redeemed) [not automatic]
What else can Club miles be used for?
Club Miles Can Be redeemed as below:
10,000 Miles = A Flat $100.00 off any curation charge air/land/cruise (not per person, but overall)
Q: Can I combine my Club Floor Level & Mileage to save more?
A: Yes! Let's say your 1st Floor and you have a little over 10,000miles or more. You can redeem the 10,000 Miles for flat $100.00 off total, and your 1st Floor Status to save an additional 10% off curation per person.
Your a couple, you're traveling international you're having me do air & land.
Land Curation: $200.00 x2 = $400.00
International Air $100.00 x2 = $200.00 (as VIP Club Members)
So your looking at $600.00
-$100.00 From mileage redemption
-$60.00 from 1st Floor Club Pass redemption (10%)
You just saved yourself $160.00!
In the process you will be downgraded to the Ground Floor of the VIP Club.
But hey are you going away for 7+ nights and spending 10K? Yes?
Then once travel is complete you are going right back to 1st Floor with 10,000 Miles!
Note you cannot redeem miles until you hit at least 10,000 Miles. Mileage is only redeemable in 10,000 increments.
How do I get 10,000 Miles and more?
Every $1.00 you spend in travel revenue (thats counts), is awarded 1 mile.
$10,000.00 = 10,000 Miles
If you let your miles accrue & do not redeem them, then at 100,000 Miles, you can upgrade yourself to the ELITE Level!
ELITE at 100,000 can be secured for you/your spouse/your children (non adult immediate family), or a unmarried couple. A solo traveler can get into ELITE for a bit less. (See ELITE Page for details)
This is even better than reaching the 10th Floor, as ELITE grants you unlimited curation free travel for 1 year from date of enrollment/upgrade into ELITE, as well as the additional ELITE benefits. Whereas the 10th Floor secures you a single trip curation free.
These two tiers have different benefits & amenities. However both allow you access to the Club Lounge by request
or invite. The ELITE level, is the ultimate luxury unlimited level, which is not free.
As your loyalty continues with Mr. Travel Agent, LLC so will your status in the CLUB!
Traveling at least once a year from your membership auto enrollment date will automatically qualify
you for membership in the VIP Club every single year, so long as minimums are met.
Club Miles Earnings:
Miles Redemption: (Only allowed in writing by email, verbal redeeming request are not acceptable, and I do not automatically redeem your miles, you must request redemption.) Redemption cannot exceed cost of max curation charges for active trip.

Booking part of your travels on own, and then coming to me for bits & pieces of arrangements, for
example booking a cruise on own, but then coming to me for a few pre/post nights and transfers, may
not qualify you for status, unless those arrangements meet my minimum qualification requirements of 7
nights. Traveling twice within 1 year and combining those stays of 2/3/4 nights at 4 or 5 star
hotels/cruises/tours/customization, will be allowed to earn you initial membership. Once those
requirements are met in full you will be given 1 year Ground Floor membership, effective the
date you meet requirements.

date, not travel date, and that new reservation meets minimum requirements for membership. At 1
year from enrollment your membership will either expire, downgrade or renew immediately for you. Rollover of
nights to new year is not accepted. Miles rollover does accrue so long as membership is
If you fail to meet minimum requirements for annual renewal, you'll need to request a renewal membership for you or your family. This will therefore allow you to maintain your membership Miles and Floor Level status for 1 year, along with Club membership benefits. In addition curation charges up to the value of your renewal membership costs are waived for your 1st trip reserved upon renewal.
