Elegant, understated, taylor made and reliable…there are just some of the characteristics that come to mind when talking about Milan, the Italian fashion capital. This, and so much more is NCC Group Italia, a chauffeur driven car service that pushed the bundaries of the often a bit too traditional and conservative italian service market.

Eurostar: St. Pancras to Gare Du Nord

Eurostar is a fabulous way to travel; it was everything expected and more. My colleague and I boarded the train at St. Pancras station in London with plans to go to Brussels, Belgium. St. Pancras was well organized making it easy to find our train. St. Pancras also offered no-charge “easy-cart’s” accessible, right at the station’s entrance. When we arrived at the train we were ushered to our spacious seats and our bags were stowed away by the courteous staff.

A Trip to Istanbul for Valentines Day - Turkish Airlines

This year instead of giving the traditional – yet unoriginal – flowers and candy for Valentine’s Day, surprise your significant other by taking them across the ocean for an unforgettable, romantic trip to Turkey, one of the world’s top destinations. From January 24th until January 31, 2012, Turkish Airlines, the fastest growing airline in the world and voted the top airline in Europe, is offering incredibly low airfare to exotic Istanbul for one or two people for just $599 per person round trip, including taxes - which is approximately a 25 percent savings from regular fares.

Virgin Trains - London to Liverpool

British train travel isn’t as glorious as its continental European counterparts, but a trip on a Virgin Trains is as rock and roll as it gets on the island. Services in Britain were privatized 15 years ago to mixed reviews: Higher fares resulted, as did safer services, longer repair times began, though customer service was also improved. Virgin has been equally criticised along with the competition. What sets them apart is that Virgin gets right so many things that other services get so wrong.

British Heritage Bespoke Tours

British Heritage Bespoke Tours aims to change clients’ understanding of a chauffer. Something of a boutique service, its small, elite team offers a wide range of tours that allow customers to tour London in style. The company’s tours include tastes of the city’s culture, entertainment and culinary delights in the company of friendly and knowledgeable drivers. But what really sets British Heritage Bespoke Tours apart is its connection to British culture.

Rail Europe - London to Bath

Train travel in England or anywhere in Europe for that matter can be an exciting adventure, especially for those who want to enjoy the country-side. Trains run via the UK’s First Great Western trains as well as Virgin Trains and a few other options, but the most efficient way to book is through Rail Europe. You can either book with a specific itinerary or for more ‘free spirited’ types, you can opt to keep your plans open and purchase a ticket that allows you to explore what you want, when you want -anywhere in Europe.

Virgin America: LAX to JFK

Flying Virgin America affirms just how low your standards get driven down with the other American carriers. Don’t take my bashing of the status quo as radical ranting, Virgin America is the real revolutionary here. The lighting in the cabin is calming, the leather seats are spacious in the Main Cabin and better in the one step up product, “Main Cabin Select”, and I’m using GOGO Inflight Internet as the so-called “Fly-Over-States” speed by below.

SuperShuttle - Service in Paris!

So you’re traveling to Paris. You’re very excited but you’re not looking forward to the longish trek from Charles De Gaulle into central Paris. You can take a cab, which will cost you around 100 Euros or more. On the flip side if you want to save money you can take the Metro but do you really want to sit on a subway for an additional hour after a long flight into Paris?

Virgin America Airlines - The Best in Domestic Travel

I honestly cannot rave enough about my love for Virgin America for domestic flights. I was already a big fan of Virgin Atlantic and although they are two completely separate companies (although the brainchild of Sir Richard Branson, due to US laws he does not own more than a 25% stake in the company) No worries though, you still get the same excellent service. If you must travel economy in the US, the only way to fly is through Virgin America –period.
