Have you ever thought about elevating your world travels by being part of an exclusive travel club? When you travel with THIRDHOME, you open the door to a world of luxury through second home exchanges, vacation rentals and adventures unlike any other. THIRDHOME is the premier luxury property and travel club that offers exchanges, rentals and adventures with an emphasis on an elevated approach to travel experiences—from an eco-lodge in Mont-Blanc, France, to a luxe five-bedroom on the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy.
Their philosophy is that every trip should be a transformative, life-changing and luxurious experience. Since 2010, the Exchange club has grown to 11,000 members in 95 countries. THIRDHOME is the only vacation club of its caliber, with homes that must have a minimum value of $500,000, bringing The Club’s average property value to around $2.3 million. Guests often have access to exclusive amenities like butler services, in-home chefs and expansive pools and spas. Once trips are booked, guests can connect with the homeowners for recommendations and insider tips about the surrounding area, creating a memorable and unique experience like no other.
To join the Exchange, the process is simple: owners submit their second home or resort residence for approval. Once approved and onboarded by their team, weeks are deposited exclusively for other club members’ use, which is also how to earn travel credits. These credits, and a minimal exchange fee, are used to book a stay. No second home? No problem. You can still enjoy reserving time in elevated vacation homes through their rental site. These homes go through the same selective process as the Exchange, where home value, quality, amenities and desirable locations are a must.
“So far, nothing compares to the ease of use, quality of the properties and the overall value with THIRDHOME” says member John about THIRDHOME.
For some the desire to travel is to relax and unwind; for others it is to discover and grow. Whatever your reason may be, THIRDHOME can provide the map for your next luxury trip.
“I recommend THIRDHOME every chance I get,” says member Sam about the club. “If they have a second home I say, ‘sign up.’ If they don’t, I tell them to buy a second home and then sign up.”
What sets THIRDHOME apart from other rentals and home exchange programs on the market even further is their launch of THIRDHOME Adventures, one-of-a-kind journeys in a variety of locations worldwide. THIRDHOME Adventures puts travelers in touch with insider access to coveted experiences. These adventure packages are open to anyone and offer small-group luxury tours with set departure dates specific to the destination—whether it be encountering Silverback Gorillas at Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda or diving off the coast of Fiji with legendary oceanographer, Jean-Michel Cousteau. Be on the lookout, new Adventures are always being launched.
Aside from the luxuriousness of the spaces themselves and the Adventures that are up for grabs, THIRDHOME also prides itself on the intimate nature of the experience as a whole. After all, there’s only so much a hotel can offer to make you feel at home, as opposed to staying at someone’s actual second home.
Recent guest Sorelle says, “Croatia is very family oriented, so Milka, the property manager, also had her mother cook for us one night,” of a trip to Villa Tiha on Croatia’s Adriatic coast. “She cooked delicious traditional Croatian food—plates filled with seafood, grilled vegetables and an apple strudel for dessert.”
Since its beginnings THIRDHOME has lived up to (and gone beyond) what its members expect to get from the club. Many club members boast that it’s the feeling of being in an exclusive club, and the special aspects of what that offers, that seals the deal in making THIRDHOME their choice for travel. In addition to the Exchange, THIRDHOME Rentals increases the options available to members. THIRDHOME Rentals empowers owners and club members to list their home with confidence and allows travelers to book without compromise. After all, where else can you seek out a well-kempt second home rental in any far-flung locale across the globe?
“What we love most about our THIRDHOME travels is getting a chance to stay as a native and immerse ourselves in the local culture,” says THIRDHOME member John. “Staying in a fantastic residence just enhances our experience!”
The drive to travel is different in each of us. For some, it is to escape and detach; for others it is to discover and grow. Whatever your reason may be, THIRDHOME Exchange, Rentals and Adventures provide the blueprint and the backbone for your trip. It’s time to indulge your wanderlust.
