BEYOND BOUTIQUE CONSULTATION AGREEMENT
Services Provided by Beyond Boutique
Beyond Boutique is delighted to help you create, book, and experience the trip of your dreams! We create and book customized itineraries to include accommodations, transfers, activities, and anything else that will make your trip special. In the months leading up to your departure date, we will accessorize your trip with reservations, spa appointments, and activities. While you are enjoying your trip, we are monitoring and managing your every step of the way and are there for you if you need assistance.
As a client of Beyond Boutique, you have exclusive access to valuable amenities at Virtuoso-affiliated properties and other properties where we are “preferred partners” due to our affiliation with Brownell, a Virtuoso Member, giving you access to the best that travel has to offer!
Once the planning is complete, the arrangements with hoteliers, tour companies, and other suppliers are secured with the credit card provided in the Credit Card Authorization. You will be provided with all payment information and cancellation policies of the suppliers in advance.
The consultation fee varies per trip and is based upon the number of travelers, destinations, the level of complication anticipated, and other factors. The minimum consultation fee is $350 for research and development of a custom itinerary recommendation and covers up to two itinerary revisions. The consultation fee shall be collected prior to the commencement of trip planning and is non-refundable.
The consultation fee covers a small portion of our many hours of work and thought creating your trip. We also earn a commission on our bookings with suppliers. We request NET pricing terms from vendors. This pricing reflects the vendor’s negotiated, wholesale rates with their hotels, guides, transfer companies, etc. and is the best method to obtain fully transparent quotes that do not include any hidden mark-ups and do not include commission for Beyond Boutique. This NET pricing is passed along to you, so you can see exactly what the trip costs. Beyond Boutique charges a fee on all NET pricing bookings per the Fee Structure below.
When NET pricing isn’t available, Beyond Boutique earns a commission directly from the supplier without any added cost to you. For example, hotels charge the same price for a room whether or not a commission will be paid to an agency for the booking.
In the event a hotel will not pay standard commissions to agencies (very rare and mostly found in tiny towns in Europe), you agree to pay Beyond Boutique a booking fee in an amount equal to 10% of the nightly rate booked. Final travel documents shall be delivered to you when all invoices have been paid in full.
Consultation Fee: $350
Trip Management Fee: 15% of NET Vendor Pricing
Hotel-Only Research and Booking Fee: $0 – $100
Airline Ticket Issuance: $100 – $150 Domestic and International unless inclusive of a package.
Beyond Boutique reserves the right to adjust these fees at any time. Effective November 1, 2020.
Quotes and Cancellation Fee
Prices and availability are subject to change and are not guaranteed until payment is received. Price quotes are applicable to the date and time at which they are received. Quotes in a foreign currency are subject to fluctuations in exchange rates and international credit card issuer fees.
In the event you cancel your trip after we have your trip under deposit, you will be charged the cancellation fee charged by the hotel, tour company or other supplier. Fees paid to Beyond Boutique are non-refundable.
Beyond Boutique always recommends the purchase of travel insurance to cover certain risks inherent in travel such as supplier bankruptcy and the inability to travel due to a medical or personal emergency. If you know you want to decline travel insurance, please check the box below accordingly. Otherwise, we will provide you a quote for travel insurance which you may purchase or decline.
