Leading luxury villa rental company WIMCO Villas announced today the launch of WIMCO Prive’, a concierge travel service for booking private jet flights, chartering yachts, and renting villas on private islands. This new service is built on the foundations of long-standing relationships with partners in each of these three areas.
With WIMCO Prive’ vacationers can reserve private charter flights from anywhere in the world to private villas in any of WIMCO’s destinations in the Caribbean, Americas, Europe and the South Pacific. Where transfers are required to access smaller airports on private islands, they arrange “wing to wing’ transfers, avoiding airline terminals entirely. In this era of concern about social distancing, having access to private aviation and private villas results in less points of contact with other travelers” states WIMCO’s president Stiles Bennet, “reducing the risk of contracting a virus while away from home”.
Working closely with long-standing partner Tradewind Aviation, WIMCO Prive’ can arrange a private, luxurious and crowd-free travel experience from your home airport to the islands or vacation enclave where your private villa rental awaits
- Enjoy a private, luxurious and crowd-free experience from your home airport to your private villa rental
- Choose from world-class private jets for parties of any size – from light jets (6-7 passengers) to mid-sized jets (up to 9 passengers) to large cabin (up to 15 passengers) to airliner (60 passengers)
- For trips that require transfers, we offer seamless “wing to wing” transfers – no terminals, no crowds
With WIMCO Prive’ a vacationer can also request quotes on chartering private yachts of any size and configuration, waiting for them in any area of the world. Once a yacht is selected, a knowledgeable travel concierge will work with the client to pre-stock and equip the boat to the clients specifications, arrange flights to the destination where the traveling party will board the yacht, and consult on customized itineraries.
Selection of featured itineraries and vacation experiences from WIMCO Prive*:
- Westchester, New York to St Barts via San Juan – for a stay in a luxurious villa or private yacht in the culinary capital of the Caribbean
