NEW YORK, NY – Xhibition has been named the agency of record for VIP Traveler, a new digital travel company that pairs AI-driven recommendations with expert service, offering stays and experiences hand picked by a global community of travel tastemakers.
In its role as public relations representative for the next generation travel agency, Xhibition will oversee the launch of a lineup of new features, including Travel Finds, a unique personalization technology that, combined with the collective knowledge of the company’s expert Travel Stylist team, enables consumers to book trips that are perfectly fitted to one's interests and travel predispositions. The new Travel Finds feature awakens members to a world of relevant travel opportunities by proactively finding, recommending, and booking trips matched to their individual preferences - getting members to the places they want to go and assisting in discovering new destinations and accommodations.
VIP Traveler’s founders – travel and tech-industry entrepreneurs Joshua Borenstein and Mark Hoenig – started the company to create a travel agency for the 21st century. After investing nearly two years and over $1 million to build a proprietary technology platform that learns and evolves according to its members' preferences, Hoenig and Borenstein started beta testing the Travel Finds feature in January 2021. Using a personal and worldwide network of travel industry connections, destination experts, and cutting-edge personalization tools, VIP Traveler helps identify opportunities for attractive travel experiences, exclusively negotiated special offers, and full-scale itineraries just for its members.
VIP Traveler offers two tiers of membership:
- ESSENTIAL: through which members receive travel offers personalized to their individual preferences, view featured travel opportunities, discover new destinations, and build a ‘Bucket List’ of desired destinations that help guide present and future recommendations; and
- PREMIUM: which offers access to the Essential services in addition to providing a dedicated VIP Traveler Personal Travel Stylist, whose sole job is to help travelers 'live their best travel life.'
Perfectly merging the ease and unobtrusive virtual nature of an OTA with the expertise and human touch of an IRL travel planner, VIP Traveler ushers in a new model that offers just the right amount of support, both reactively and proactively, with unique experiences and special offers.
“The travel world is amid a re-invention, and VIP Traveler’s approach to travel planning is refreshing and much-needed. We cannot wait to help manifest wide-scale exposure for what we feel will be a benchmark model of the 21st-century travel agency,” says Ross Belfer, Xhibition Principal and Co-Founder.
