Enjoy a suite of VIP Benefits and Savings - not available before now and worth thousands each year.
Who owns the Society?
The society was created by and is owned by InteleTravel.com, a leading travel company celebrating its 25th anniversary. InteleTravel is accredited by all major travel brands and travel industry organizations, and has an A+ rating from Better Business Bureau.
How much does membership cost?
One time membership fee of USD $179.95 169 Euro 125 GBP
Unlimited support fee of USD $39.95 per month 39 Euro 29 GBP
There are no other fees. (At enrollment your card will be charged the one-time membership fee and your first month Unlimited Support fee, for a total of $219.90 USD, 208 Euro, 154 GBP)
How much is membership worth, or how much can I save?
When you take advantage of all or most of the benefits, a typical member can save thousands of dollars per year, or even more. We even have a savings calculator (found in the Condos, Dining & Entertainment tab on the Dashboard in the Members Only area) to help you predict your savings on travel, dining, entertainment, shopping and more. The Airport Lounge benefit alone would cost $300 - $500 USD or more for annual membership in just one airline's lounges (you get 850+ lounges in 400 cities through multiple carriers in our program) - so just that one benefit is worth the price of membership in the Society. Concierge services charge $1000 USD per year, or even per month! Others charge per call, $25 - $50 USD. So if you conservatively say our unlimited 24 hour concierge service is worth $50 per month, that's $600 USD per year - again just one benefit that is worth more than the cost of membership! Add these up, with flight insurance (average premium for this coverage is $30 - $40USD per flight. How many flights do you take a year?), medical solutions and evacuation (average premium for this type of coverage is $100USD per trip; how many trips do you take a year?), baggage fee reimbursement ($40 cash back per year), savings on all types of travel, members-only trips, etc. and the Society is clearly worth thousands of USD to just an an average user each year, many times the cost of membership. If you are a frequent traveler, heavy user or business traveler, it only gets that much better!
Is this for real/too good to be true? How could it cost so little?
The Society and InteleTravel leverage special contracts, decades-long industry relationships and high volume to bring this much value at such a low cost to members. We have to meet large minimums of members in each benefit program, for example. If you were to purchase any of these services as an individual traveler, they would cost many times the volume-discounted cost we have negotiated for you.
In what countries is membership available?
Currently France and the United Kingdom, and soon in the US. Websites, support and all services are currently available in English, Spanish and French language. The Society is not approved for sale in any other countries at this time, but there are plans to expand.
As a member can I earn commissions or am I a travel agent?
No the society is a unique and valuable portfolio of benefits for travelers, not travel agents. InteleTravel.com has a famed home-based travel agent program, but that is a separate product and has different benefits from the society and is currently only available in North America. To have a true home based agent program, with full features and benefits, and fully compliant in other countries like yours is complex. Our plan is to offer the home based agent program in Europe later in 2016. Eventually both products, the Society and the InteleTravel Agent program, will be available in both the US and Europe.
Can Society Members book a hotel or flight or vacation for a friend if they are not going on the trip too? What about sharing other benefits with non-Members?
First, a Member can only be a single person/single name, not two people or more. And must be an actual person, not a company or other entity. However Society Members can book airfares, car rentals, hotels, condos, resort weeks, cruises, holidays and any kind of travel for friends, family, anyone! The Member is the only one with access to the booking engines, discount offers and special phone lines or other Members-only access. But the Member does not have to be a passenger on the trips or other discount opportunities. So that's a great extension of the discounts on travel and on shopping, dining, entertainment and more to a Member's friends and family. There are some benefits that are for members only however, and can only be accessed by members. They are the flight insurance and medical evacuation coverages, other medical and legal support, the private concierge service, airport lounge access (some lounges may admit other travelers in your party for free or for a small fee, but only the member can use the ID card), luggage fee reimbursement, etc.
Are there members-only trips?
Members Only Trips can be found in the benefit of that title on the Member Dashboard, plus we go beyond other programs by allowing you to build your own trips from discounted hotel, air, car and activity booking engines (see the Booking Widget on Members Dashboard). PLUS…vacation condos, timeshare resorts and discount hotels may be found in the MY DEALS program - under Condos, Dining & Entertainment Benefit tab on the Dashboard. AND you can collaborate on your dream trips with other members in the Crowd Source Your Trip benefit. Then our travel agents will actually build the trip and price it with our discount contracts. You may have seen other "travel clubs" that focus on supposed discount trips. They are usually built around off-brand resorts and distressed, low quality time share inventory, or even travel certificates. They focus on these things because those clubs do not have real travel benefits. The Society has actual travel advantages and VIP benefits worth thousands each year (discount air, car, hotel, activities; vacation condos, airport lounge access, concierge, travel insurance, etc.) - the specific members-only trips we offer are just one of our benefits.
What methods of payment are accepted?
MasterCard, Visa, Discover card, American Express, charged in your local currency (no conversion rate)
Am I obligated to a long-term contract? When can I cancel?
The society has no long-term contracts, you may cancel your membership at any time with no penalty.
What guarantees do I have?
The society guarantees your satisfaction as a member and offers a No-Risk 30 Day 'No Questions Asked' 100% Money Back Guarantee. Cancel for any reason in your first 30 days, and the society will return 100% of your membership fee and first month unlimited support fee.
In addition, the Society has a Best Travel Price Assurance. The travel prices offered through the society's programs are guaranteed to be the best available at the time of your booking, or we will meet or beat any valid competitors price, or compensate you with 110% of the difference.
How do I update my payment information?
