Having your seat kicked while suffering through sub-par entertainment? No thanks. Etihad Airways takes commercial flying to the next level. Its Business Class cabins feature seats with fully flat beds, aisle access and a luxurious lounge offering hot snacks, delicious cocktails and spas. For an even more indulgent experience try The Residence, a private three-room cabin in the sky with its own double bedroom, living room, shower room and butler. That beats the stress of a budget airline any day.
Whether you’re travelling a short distance, or simply need an upscale ride to the airport or train station, UberLux ensures that you arrive at your destination in style. The high-end cabs are available through the same popular app, but selecting the Lux version means you’ll be picked up in one of three cars: a Mercedes-Benz S-Class, an Audi A8 or a BMW 7-Series. The windows are always fully blacked out, so you can maintain a level of privacy and mystery
If you’d rather travel by track than by air, then the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is the way to go. The original Orient Express started in 1883, delivering a first-class journey from Paris to Istanbul. These days, the private train has added new routes (including London to Paris and London to Venice) and altered its name, but the high-end luxury remains. From the sumptuous four-course dinner to the smartly dressed waiters wearing white gloves, no expense is spared on the overnight journey. The views around the train’s opulent interior are almost impressive as the views of rolling countryside out the windows.
If you’re looking for a level of travel that would bring a pang of jealousy to even your most A-list friends, then Jetsmarter might be for you. Funded by Jay-Z, the new app is being dubbed “Uber for private jets” – for those moments when you just can’t charter a plane fast enough. Call your celebrity entourage, bypass security, pop a bottle of bubbly and get ready to take to the skies in style.
