Get Your Luxury On

Wednesday September 25, 2013 / Posted by Virgin America

How does a luxurious beachfront property in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, sound? How about a view of the ocean on Singer Island, Fla.? Have a special request for your private chef? No problem. It can all be yours.

If you fancy yourself as a modern traveler and want to up your luxury status, we’ve got the perfect option for you: Portico℠. Virgin America just announced a partnership with Portico, a private club offering the best homes around the world, and in true Virgin America fashion, the benefits are very appealing.

Here’s how to get your luxury living on:

Step 1: Join Portico. As a Portico member, you’ll pay a one-time Initiation Fee of $2,500 and Annual Membership Dues of $2,500 per year. Members of the vacation club enjoy five-star hotel amenities such as daily housekeeping and on-site concierge services, all in the privacy of an exclusive residence. Think of it as playing dress up for a week with your most favorite people.

Step 2: Earn your Elevate® points.  Elevate frequent flyers can earn 35,000 points when they join Portico. Points will be posted in your account 4-6 weeks after the membership fees are paid and you’ve passed the 10-day recession period. As a bonus, Elevate members who join before November 15, 2013, will receive an additional 10,000 Elevate points courtesy of Portico. You’ll also receive an additional 1,500 points after taking your first Portico trip.

Step 3: Pack your bags, call your Escapist and prepare to live it up, luxe-style. As a Portico member, you’ll have access to 250+ homes in more than 70 cities in 23 countries around the world. There are no blackout dates, so you can travel as often and as long as you like. And in case you’re wondering how to earn more Elevate points, Virgin America currently services 22 of Portico’s most sought-after destinations. 

To celebrate the new Portico partnership, Virgin America is hosting a few sweepstakes to get you in a luxurious mood. Visit the Virgin America Facebook page for a chance to win weekly prizes or the Grand Prize – a three-night stay in Portico’s exclusive Puerto Vallarta three-story luxury villa, plus two seats in Main Cabin Select on VX.

So, luxury travelers… Where do you want to go?
