Amenities and even upgrades can often be purchased at a price. Time, however, is a finite and priceless resource. Here is how one company is helping its travelers maximize their vacation time, and enjoy every moment of their trips.

Countless studies have shown that people are happier when they travel, and yet others also indicate that the majority of Americans leave much of their vacation time unused each year. It often appears that we are all too busy, and too time-starved, to find even a moment to relax. Given how precious our vacation time is, the last thing we want to do is spend it worrying about logistical details or sitting at the airport waiting for a flight.

One company has focused on this issue, and is changing its customers’ travel experiences in fundamental ways—all for the better. When the trip planning experts at TCS World Travel plot their private jet itineraries—whether it’s a 24-day around-the-world adventure or a deep dive into a region—they put time on their travelers’ side, so they can focus on the experience in front of them instead of the more mundane details of travel.

Here’s how TCS World Travel makes travel more effortless, efficient, and enjoyable, all while making it possible for you to do more and see more on your trip.

No Layovers or Long Lines
Nothing puts a damper on a well-earned vacation like a lengthy airport layover or unexpected delay. Travel-related hassles can cut into time you would otherwise spend relaxing with family or exploring a new country. Flying on one of TCS World Travel’s custom-configured Boeing aircraft provides unparalleled flexibility, allowing for reasonable departure times and last-minute itinerary changes. TCS World Travel also accesses more convenient airports and terminals where possible, eliminating hassles such as layovers and long security lines. The majority of flights on the company’s expeditions are direct, even to remote places hard to reach by commercial air, and there are no overnight flights.

Direct Access to Remote Destinations
Being able to land close to your destination, especially remote ones, is a luxury every traveler dreams about. As the crow flies, the distance between Botswana’s Okavango Delta and Zambia’s Victoria Falls is approximately 200 miles. However, to travel between these two destinations, you either would have to drive eight hours—not including time spent at the border—or fly commercially for nearly 24 hours with multiple layovers. On TCS World Travel’s Best of Africa Private Jet Expedition, it’s a 30-minute flight on a luxurious private jet with flatbed seats, saving you a day or more in travel time.

Hassle-Free from Beginning to End
Global journeys involve hundreds of details, and taking care of them eats into your time even before you’re officially on vacation. TCS World Travel has a global team who does the heavy lifting for you, from the minute you call with your inquiry through the end of your journey. Prior to departure, you can rely on a dedicated guest services manager who will send you detailed information, help you navigate the visa application process, and even offer packing suggestions. Throughout your adventure, a veteran expedition team takes care of all the logistics, down to handling your luggage and pre-filling out customs forms, while local staff in each destination guide you through customs, direct you to transfer vehicles, and answer your questions.

Do More and See More
By taking care of all the logistics, TCS World Travel allows you to arrive refreshed, relaxed, and ready for the adventures ahead in each new destination. Their aim is for you to enjoy every precious moment of your travel experiences, beginning even before you step off the private jet. On many of their expeditions, you’ll travel with world-class experts who will introduce your next destination by sharing their in-depth knowledge during the flight. The company also works with top guides, who provide a local perspective and whose personal stories bring destinations to life in an authentic, immersive way.

Each day, you’ll choose from a variety of activities, from curated shopping and exclusive visits to notable landmarks to hikes or snorkeling, as well as unforgettable moments like a hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti Plain or after-hours access to a museum. Exploring the world with TCS World Travel allows you to go deeper into each destination with enriching experiences you can’t find anywhere else—ones that challenge, move, and inspire you. And, most importantly, TCS World Travel also gives you the time to truly enjoy those experiences.
