We give you the best in travel recommendations, exclusive access to travel experiences and preferential pricing, and provide a forum for you to share travel recommendations with the working and aspiring jet set.
WHO WE ARE
Galavante is a members-only luxury travel website for the Working Jet Set, by the Working Jet Set. We provide itineraries for a discerning readership that works hard, plays hard, and wants to maximize their travel experiences. We scour the world to bring our members the inside scoop on a destination’s culture, food, nightlife, style, and active pursuits. We only feature places we’ve personally experienced and can confidently endorse.
WHERE OUR TRAVEL RECOMMENDATIONS COME FROM
Our founding team has worked at the top firms, including The Blackstone Group, EnTrust Capital, Colden Capital Management, and Estée Lauder. We’ve built our company to over 28 professionals, including industry veterans at UrbanDaddy, Associated Press, National Geographic, and MSN. In addition to our team, each one of our editorials is carefully curated by a network of Global Tastemakers, contributors who work across finance, law, entrepreneurship, fashion, and philanthropy. Our Global Tastemakers know what their peers are looking for, and they bring it. While our recommendations are generally on the high end, we seek authenticity in our experiences. A Michelin star does not necessarily warrant a recommendation, but the perfect homey Italian trattoria most certainly does. When it comes to accommodations, we strive to provide a balanced, targeted list including a boutique option, a place to use hotel points, and a splurge.
OUR EDITORIAL OFFERINGS
In addition to feature destination stories, Galavante’s First Look covers new and noteworthy hotel openings, and Galavante Confidential offers roundups, lists, and newsworthy travel events. Our Food section provides recipes from around the world and our Style sectionoffers advice on packing lists and shopping guides. Families articles explore destinations befitting travelers with children, making almost any city family-friendly. And in our NYC section, we show you how to be a tourist in your own city. (Without the fanny pack.)
In traveling around the world, we found ourselves running into celebrities, from Jimmy Buffett at the grocery store in Antigua to Justin Timberlake at the Hôtel du Cap. In our Celebrity Travel section, we feature their favorite destinations, celebrity-owned hotels and restaurants, charities, exclusive interviews and travel tips.
