Marketing executive Andria Gutierrez loves traveling, but she doesn’t love the time and effort it takes to plan them out. She shared: “When I was younger, I planned all my own trips. But now that I own a business, I just don’t have the spare hours anymore.” That’s why she decided to join the Club from Allcall, which does all the work for travelers.
These clubs offer exclusive and unique travel experience. Suzy Kellems Dominik, an artist from NYC, shared: “What’s so interesting is that they have this access. It’s intellectual and emotional travel – the imagination is just endless – and they curated a group of very interesting people who were all like-minded around food.”
