    Qualifications to earn Membership for 1 Year:
     

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

    A Club Member will stay in 5 star hotels, 4 star hotels, private customization, sail on luxury ocean and river cruise
    lines, or travel by luxury escorted tours. Have private drivers and guides and more.


    - Minimum number of nights to main Club Status: 6 Nights Annually with or without air.
    - Hotels can belong to Hotel Programs, or a non-preferred partner luxury hotel & or 4* hotels or hotel program approved by Mr. Travel Agent, LLC.
    - Cruises lines at Luxury Level: Examples: Seabourn, Silversea, Oceania, Regent, Viking, etc..
    - Cruise lines at Moderate Level: Examples: Royal Caribbean, Holland America, NCL, Princess, etc..
    - River Cruise lines Luxury Level: Uniworld, AMA Waterways, etc..
    - River Cruise lines at Moderate Level: Avalon, Viking, etc..
     

    SILVER level Cruise & River cruise line suites MAY qualify you for Luxury miles on review of costs.
    Escorted Tours as Luxury or Moderate 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 Luxury,
    while Globus or Collette would be considered Moderate.
     

     

    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, 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, you'll be given the option of purchasing a renewal membership for you or your family. This will therefore allow you to maintain your revenue membership Miles 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 to maintain membership (if not auto qualified):

    $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.
