Who can get you into one of Barcelona’s most exclusive clubs for a private drink? Or introduce you to a survivor of the Hiroshima atomic attack in Japan? And get you an afterhours tour of a Venetian palace?

There’s only one travel brand that can get you all these truly unique experiences, and surprisingly it’s been hiding in the shadows!

It’s Luxury Gold and although you may recognise it as an offshoot of Insight Vacations, the brand is finally ready to take on the travel industry as its own standalone brand.


And with incredibly exclusive experiences – like gaining afterhours entry into Harlow Carr Gardens in York, seeing the Sistine Chapel before it opens to the public and enjoying High Tea at Sukh Niwas Jaipur’s City Palace – it’s about time!

Luxury Gold’s Chief Executive, Ulla Hefel Böhler, confirmed the brand was going out on its own at an invite-only function in Sydney yesterday, where she told KarryOn that although Luxury Gold has been an associate of Insight Vacations for five years, it was time for the brand to “spread its wings”.

She said the brand has outgrown Insight Vacations, in that what it offers is ultimate luxury while Insights sits in a premium space.

“It’s such a strong and powerful product, it’s the best of the best and it’s time to really separate the two.”

She continued, saying that in addition to separating itself by offering “very hard, if not impossible, to arrange experiences”, a Luxury Gold holiday comes with unique touches such as VIP door-to-door transfer, intimate group sizes, the best possible in-destination accommodation (including Red Carnation Hotels) and the best mode transportation appropriate to the destination.

“Often we get great feedback from guests saying they’ve had ‘life changing experiences’ with us and hearing that gives us goosebumps moments,” she said.
