    Welcome to the VIP Club & Lounge of Mr. Travel Agent, LLC!


    Being a member of the Club offers you special amenities and service charge reductions,
    and more based on your level of travel (5* or 4*) and frequency of travel. There are two floors
    to the CLUB the entry floor is known as (SILVER). SILVER is where you as a client get to be a
    member of the Club yet perhaps you are not a high end or luxury client but still enjoy the
    benefits of membership. Then upstairs (take the VIP elevator or stairs) to the VIP Floor (GOLD).
    GOLD is held for the VIPs who love traveling in luxury and staying at luxury hotels. These two
    floors have different benefits & amenities. Both allow you access to the Club Lounge by request
    or invite. 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 enrollment date will automatically qualify
    you for membership every single year at either the GOLD or SILVER Floor, so long as minimums
    are met. As well you could earn GOLD Status as SILVER if you decide on occasion to mix in a
    little luxury in your travels.

    Qualifications to earn GOLD or SILVER Club Membership for 1 Year:
     

    Club Membership Status is at my discretion based on your travels, and I reward loyalty.

    A GOLD Member will stay in 5 star hotels, 5 star customization, sail on luxury ocean and river cruise
    lines, or travel by luxury escorted tours. These determine your membership floor level. Private
    drivers and guides could be mixed in with both GOLD or SILVER Member services, therefore
    typical private services do not determine membership tier, but more exclusive and luxurious
    private services could.


    - Minimum number of nights for status at both levels: 6 Nights Annually with or without air.

    - To Qualify your Club Level as GOLD, you must have more 5* Nights vs 4* Nights.

    - To Qualify your Club Level as SILVER, you will have more 4* Nights vs 5* Nights.

    (Having more 4* Nights could also result in a GOLD membership being instantly downgraded to SILVER)
    - Hotels can belong to Hotel Programs, or a non-preferred partner luxury hotel for GOLD status. SILVER Status is based on 4* hotel or hotel program approved by Mr. Travel Agent, LLC.
    - Cruises lines at GOLD: Examples: Seabourn, Silversea, Oceania, Regent, Viking, etc..
    - Cruise lines at SILVER: Examples: Royal Caribbean, Holland America, NCL, Princess, etc..
    - River Cruise lines at GOLD: Uniworld, AMA Waterways, etc..
    - River Cruise lines at SILVER: Avalon, Viking, etc..
     

    SILVER level Cruise & River cruise line suites MAY qualify you for GOLD Status on review of costs.
    Escorted Tours as GOLD or SILVER are determined by class of hotel on escorted tour, and
    exclusivity of the escorted tour brand. For Example, Tauck or A&K would be considered GOLD,
    while Globus or Collette would be considered SILVER.
     

    Automatic Club Launch Enrollment for 1 Year begins, June 6, 2022. You’ll be notified of your Year 1 level
    for all current, future, and any past clients who have traveled with me as a Luxury Travel Advisor while
    with Avenue Two Travel since 2019. If you have not traveled through me since before 2019, you will not
    be auto enrolled for Year 1, and your membership will begin upon your first new reservation of
    qualification.
     

    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 6
    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 membership at your qualified level, effective the
    date you meet requirements.
     

    Membership renewal is maintained when you reserve a new vacation within 1 year of your enrollment
    date, not travel date, and that new reservation meets minimum requirements for membership. At 1
    year from enrollment your membership will either expire or renew immediately for you. Rollover of
    nights to new year is not accepted, except if nights traveled exceed 15 nights in year, 1 year rollover in
    this case will be accepted, there will be no 2 year rollover allowed unless maybe you are going around
    the world in 30 days or something! Revenue points rollover does accrue so long as membership is
    maintained.

     

    If you fail to meet minimum requirements for annual renewal I will allow you the option of purchasing a renewal membership for you or your family. This will therefore allow you to maintain your revenue membership points and status for 1 year, along with Club membership benefits. In addition service charges up to the value of your renewal membership costs are waived for your 1st trip reserved upon renewal.

     

    Renewal Costs:

    $300.00 per person for Mr. & Mrs. (1st & 2nd) Travelers on the account.

    $200.00 per person for adult children (18 y/o+) as 3rd+ traveler on family account

    $100.00 per person for teenage (13-18 y/o) as 3rd+ traveler on family account

    Children under 12: Free for family reenrollment.

     
     

    Membership requirements as of June 1st, 2022 will be locked in place through December 31st, 2023,
    before a new review of benefits will be taken under consideration for 2024.
     

    Point Earning:

    • GOLD Earns 1 Point for every $1,000 in spend
    • SILVER Earns 1 Point for every $2,000 in spend

    1 GOLD Point = $5 (example: $10,000 vacation would earn you as GOLD 10 points = $50)

    1 SILVER Point = $2.50 (example: $10,000 vacation would earn you as SILVER 5 points = $25)
    Point Redemption: (Only allowed in writing by email, verbal redeeming request are not acceptable, and I
    do not automatically redeem your points, you must request redemption.)
     

    Points can be redeemed towards service charge reductions of booking charges, planning
    charges, air & rail ticketing charges, pre-payable service arrangements that allow it, in addition to a
    print subscription of Virtuoso Life if desired. Redemption cannot exceed cost of max service
    fees for active trip.
     

     

    Rules of the VIP Club Lounge:
    To be granted the additional travel amenity for being part of the Club Lounge, you must remain an
    active member of the Club Lounge. If you leave the Club Lounge your amenity status will be cancelled
    forever, regardless of GOLD or SILVER Club Status. If you enjoy that nice bottle of Champagne or Wine
    on arrival in your luxurious hotel suite on behalf of Mr. Travel Agent, please don’t leave the VIP Club
    Lounge. Clients who are not GOLD or SILVER will not be accepted in the Club Lounge, unless I deem it
    appropriate due to past travels, loyalty, and referrals.

     


    Ok, What is the VIP Club Lounge?!
    The VIP Club Lounge is an Exclusive Client Only Facebook group, accessible only on invite approval. You
    can request to join the Lounge, but unless I know you, or you are a past, current, upcoming client you
    will not be approved to join the Lounge. The Lounge does not grant you access to the GOLD or SILVER
    Club itself, but most will be members of the Club, as that is the goal of the Lounge. To promote travel,
    travel news and liked minded travel conversation amongst its members.
