The term revenge travel refers to the zealous urge to jump back from a year paralyzed by a pandemic through high adventure and incomprehensible exploration. But with a world of constant reminders that we are not completely out of the woods, revenge travelers may want to hand over the planning details to the experts.
The normal tendency is to seek out all-inclusive resorts that allow travelers to put on swimming trunks and leave the wallet in the hotel room. Destination Club, an exclusive members-only travel club, takes it a step further and offers more than just typical vacations. While many hotels and resorts translate “all-inclusive” as focused on being comprehensive and comfortable, Destination Club vacations focus on the unique experiences each destination possesses, such as sunset cruises in Dubai, harbor golf in the Dominican Republic, day trips to the Bali temples, and shopping and sightseeing in the city of Mykonos, just to name a few.
These tours are curated based on the specific inclinations of the travelers and provide luxury experiences at a reasonable price considering the level of VIP service. These experiences include private chefs, spa treatments, luxury transportation, throbbing nightlife, skydiving and just about anything else that fits the theme of “revenge travel.”
Membership levels General (free), Gold ($ 15 / month) and Elite ($ 25 / month) offer gradually increasing benefits from travel accessories to free room upgrades where possible. Tours can be arranged for the individual or for groups of 12-30 people. One of the goals of Destination Club is to bring people with similar interests together and let travel become cement for future friendships.

Destination Club CEO Sekou Saunders began his love of travel in his early 20s after visiting Japan, not a surprising reaction. However, the idea for the Destination Club was actually formulated after Sekou traveled to Sydney, Australia. Years as touring markets for marketing brands and associate producer of music festival certainly added Sekou’s vision for Destination Club. Further formulation of the business idea came during Sekou’s residency in the Dominican Republic. In total, Sekou has traveled to over twelve countries (not bad since Destination Club is only 5 years old) and added about two new countries each year. Sekou’s goal is to make “travel easy while creating memorable experiences.” The secret behind the company’s success is that Sekou personally scouts the destinations to find the most scrapbook-worthy memories to both excite the club member and make the travel experience a breeze.
Simplifying the chores of travel planning is a great way to slowly lead the traveler back to the world of adventure. Although revenge travel is challenged by the Delta variant of Covid-19, smaller tour groups and more individual cures can be both safer and more tailored to one’s travel preferences. As the landscape of the country remains supportive and diverse, a black-owned company like Destination Club possesses yet another quality that makes revenge sweet rather than bitter.
