Great Expectations

If you get a luxury vacation at 50% off, is it still luxury? Hmmm … Who cares! Sending you on opulent vacations for half off, NextGreatPlace.

Started by the guys who helped form the world’s largest luxury travel club (Exclusive Resorts), NextGreatPlace takes a “Zappos-like” approach to the high-end vacation market — offering once-lavish travel perks and service (curated adventures, private chefs, luxury villas, etc.) at a fraction of the cost and hassle of a destination club.

The vacations, covering everything from ski resorts in Telluride to secluded jungle villas in Belize, are all custom-designed by a team of seasoned travel experts dubbed “PlaceMakers,” who vet the locations and act as private concierges before and during the trips. All interaction, including booking, can be done either online (in about three clicks) or via the phone.

Currently, membership to NGP is $500 per year. But use the coupon code “insidehook” on the sign-up page until month’s end and receive a 50% discount.

At which point, you will probably care. A lot.
