With international travel remaining on hiatus, together with an abundance of unattractive restrictions imposed on hotels and resort destinations, premium travel and tour operator, Overseas Leisure Group, has launched an alternative luxury travel option via luxury RV for travelers to explore the great American outdoors while taking responsible health and safety measures to ensure a minimum risk within the remote wilderness.
Discover America has been developed in response to the European travel ban and steep surge in demand for domestic travel by offering a series of bespoke Luxury RV excursions that are customized for today’s affluent traveler. Designed to reconnect the traveler with the natural wonder of the USA, a state-of-the-art recreation vehicle is paired with an inter-state itinerary to create a most memorable cross-country adventure of a lifetime. Each package is tailored to suit the client’s profile and their required level of on-the-road service or self-sufficiency, while providing one-of-a-kind authentic experiences along the way. A Discover America Luxury RV excursion is the most prudent way to independently explore off the beaten track destinations with all the conveniences and comforts of a hotel—while keeping these secluded areas of the country at low-risk and as safe as possible.
“Due to the recess in international travel, our volume of domestic bookings has seen a rapid rise from 5 percent to more than 90 percent over the last month,” says Felix Brambilla, founder and CEO of Overseas Leisure Group, in a press statement. “Never has there been a more critical time to use a travel advisor during the ever-changing landscape of travel during Covid-19. A travel advisor will know about interstate quarantine measures, as well as the protocols and safety guidelines being enforced at each destination, so clients are getting the best insider information. You need to find the proper balance between safety and comfort so the magic of discovery remains. Every aspect of the journey is about acting responsibly, starting with the traveler.”
Overseas Leisure Group has knowledge of the U.S. market, allowing travel advisors to stay abreast of the most attractive and safest options for domestic travel. The company has more than 20 years of experience in advocating the U.S. as an adventure destination, and its travel advisors now play even more of an essential role in designing the perfect journey—combining destination and travel method with today’s safety protocols. A wide array of luxury RVs are available, ranging from compact luxury Mercedes vans for two or three people, up to a top-of-the-line 45 ft. converted coach for six people that is fully serviced and includes a Presidential Suite on wheels, featuring rooms with a queen or king sized bed, full sized bathrooms, kitchen, laundry facilities, spacious dining area and satellite TVs with 4G internet. In addition to providing an experienced driver if required, Overseas Leisure Group’s Chase Road Concierge offers an all-inclusive service that provides tech assistance, cleaning, groceries, meals, and maintenance, as well as a chauffeur for transportation when the RV is parked. Clients may also choose an alternate mode of transport, including an SUV, convertible car or even a Harley Davidson motorcycle.
With summer travel to Europe currently suspended for U.S. citizens, the luxury traveler is seeking home-grown, off-the-grid options for themselves or their family. Discover America offers breathtaking and scenic road trips that are tailored and pre-determined by the required period of travel that can often be up to two weeks for a single trip. Travelers looking for nature is the common request. From touring the Great Lakes, or experiencing Wyoming’s National Parks such as Grand Teton or Yellowstone, to visiting a ranch in Montana, any type of RV retreat can be planned for any region in the country. Seeing America on the open road can also include staycations at hotels, villas, ranches and resorts along the way that accommodate RVs on-site and encompass unique activities from cattle drives and archery, to a river rafting camp trip with an Olympic gold medalist. No details are spared to allow an authentic immersion in America, with round-the-clock assistance and a network of safety guides on-call.
Here are some examples of the most popular excursions available from Discover America by Overseas Leisure Group:
