What is a Luxury Concierge?
You might have asked yourself how the high end market plan their holidays. The answer is right in front of you: luxury concierge. In this category are included the rich and super rich part of the population, having limited time and big amounts of money to spend. the classic holidays are being replaced by all inclusive vacations and the typical requirements are being changed for opulent services.
A luxury concierge represents a tailor made holiday maker, where the client's needs are carefully listened to and taken care of. The word "concierge" originates from the French phrase "comte des cierges" and describes the person that in the medieval times lit the candles and maintained them at major events.
In the Middle Ages, the same expression describes the one who was responsible for keeping the keys. Back to present times, a concierge service represents a luxury travel agency that provides full time services for a specific area, country or it is a global service.
The enquiries may differ gently from luxury villas to off market hotel suites from all inclusive cruises to private jet or luxury car hire. The demands can vary from normal to extravagant as seen in the past where clients asked for impossible. This demonstrates that for a luxury concierge company no requirement is too big or hard to obtain. Due to this, in this specific area only skilled people work, who have a big acknowledge in the management and tourism area.
In Portugal, there are a few all inclusive concierge services that operate full time and include a large scale of services. In the Portuguese southernmost region, the Algarve, there are just a couple of concierge companies. Understanding the need for luxury travel and the lack of information spread out around the whole region of the Algarve, the Algarve Lifestyle was born.
