And if problems arise, we've got your back.
Particularly when traveling to exotic destinations (and also as the world emerges from a global pandemic!)- patience, flexibility and a sense of adventure are required. But our local teams on the ground have seen it all, are clued into the latest information in destination and excel at adjusting when necessary.
We're expert problem solvers (and supported by expert problem solvers!) In addition to our personal global network, we're supported by our association with Tafari Travel and membership in Virtuoso, a by-invitation-only luxury travel network comprised of the leading travel companies in the world.
Our goal is to help you feel confident every step of the way.
Confident that the itinerary is right for you and your family. Confident that you have the support you need. Confident that you will feel safe and well cared for while traveling. And confident that your family will love the trip.
Every trip we design begins with a matchmaking process.
First, we get to know you, your family and what you want to experience through travel.
Then, we reach into out robust network of travel partners around the world.
Over the course of 2 decades we've nurtured relationships with the best local teams all around the world.
Connecting our clients with the right partners is where the magic happens.
Travel should be fun, exciting, and encourage you to try new things.
Travel should make you feel alive!
We take stress out of the travel planning process so you can feel excited and inspired.
We strive to make travel planning fun and stress-free for you - leaving you excited and inspired for the journey ahead.
We are here to help your family create cherished memories through travel. The bucket list destinations and experiences in which we specialize are generally impossible to coordinate on your own. Our clients come to us when the stakes are high.
We’ve spent decades fostering relationships with the best guides, tour operators and properties around the world. We intimately know the top hotels and tour companies in the most in-demand destinations. And we've helped hundreds of families create their most cherished memories.
Great - and important - question! Having a realistic budget in mind and sharing that with us ensures a positive and efficient travel planning experience. In fact, this is a required detail to cover before we get started. In most cases, line-item breakdown on complete itineraries is not possible. There are a multitude of relationships, contracts and negotiated rates involved in a complete itinerary and these rates are confidential.
We've put together a budgeting guide that covers our top 10 destinations.

Our standard fee starts at $350 per family for complete itinerary development and trip management. This can vary based on complexity, number of travelers and time frame.
We have a spectacular network of trusted villa and residential-style vacation rentals around the world. We do not work with consumer rental sites like VRBO or Airbnb. Rather, we only use accreddited local brokers who personally maintain a portfolio of properties in their destination of expertise. We love privately-owned, residential style accommodations, from the perfect ski house in Vail to a charming apartment in the heart of walkable Paris, and always stand by the quality of every property we recommend and book.
Our non-refundable professional planning and management fee covers a portion of our time spent working together with you to perfectly customize your itinerary, manage booking of all components and professionally manage your trip from start to finish. Our clients enjoy access to exclusive contracted rates and preferred partnership amenities with hotels and other travel suppliers around the world.
We have an intentional and efficient travel planning process, and our travel designers are available during regular business hours. While traveling in most destinations our clients have access to 24/7 support to assist and support throughout the trip.
Essentially, we take care of everything when it comes to planning and booking your family trip. We handle your land arrangements, such as accommodations, ground transfers, and experiential activities.
Videre Travel does not book air. However, we partner with an amazing air desk who book flights for our clients and will put you in touch with them directly if you would like support in booking flights. We also are unable to use your personal miles or loyalty points to book air or hotel.
Credits, refunds, and cancellations are at the discretion of the supplier(s) and not Videre Travel. Videre Travel is not the source or supplier of the travel services requested and acts solely as an agent for the actual suppliers of such services. You are advised that the suppliers whose names appear in the information supplied are those who are responsible for providing the travel services purchased. Videre Travel’s exposure is limited to the amount of commission paid and the company is not responsible for the actions or inactions of suppliers, including if third-party travel supplier financially defaults.
We understand that life happens and that you may need to cancel your trip. All cancellations must be advised in writing. At the time of booking, your Travel Advisor will advise you of the cancellation policy of your hotel and/or program. If a cancellation policy has not been provided to you, you are to assume the booking is non-refundable. Cancellation policies vary and are implemented by the supplier. Please verify with your Travel Advisor if you have any questions on the cancellation policy. While you may feel some circumstances warrant leniency on cancellation penalties, it is not for Videre Travel to make this decision. We always recommend travel insurance for this reason.
To protect your investment in your upcoming trip and to protect the health and safety of your family, we strongly recommend purchasing travel insurance for each trip. You will be offered travel insurance at the time of booking. If you decline to purchase, you acknowledge the risks associated and potential financial implications of traveling without insurance coverage.
Should you elect to purchase travel insurance, the terms of the policy will dictate whether, and to what extent, coverage for any financial loss may exist under the circumstances. Please note, traditional travel insurance policies do not cover pandemics or government actions, you must purchase a “Cancel for Any Reason” add on to be covered for these extreme events.
We do not include the cost of any travel or health insurance in our packages or pricing.
As the worldwide COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic remains ongoing at this time, travel plans may be interrupted or cancelled by the supplier that is providing them, a government entity or other third party over which we have no control.
Especially in this post-pandemic era, we always advise packing your sense of adventure and a healthy dose of patience. Things can change, but rest assured, the local teams are working hard to adapt when necessary to ensure your best possible travel experience.
