What is a Local Experience?

A Local Experience provides you, as a member, with an opportunity to discover the world outside of your hotel. It provides a local twist to a favourite attraction at your destination or gives you access to an activity you wouldn't normally be able to do. By using our local contacts we provide unique experiences to enrich your stay and bring the discovery element back into travel. Local Experiences are authentic, unique and original and layer onto your itinerary to create a memorable stay.
