With international travel remaining on hiatus, premium travel and tour operator Overseas Leisure Group has launched an alternative luxury travel option for the adventurous to explore America while taking responsible health and safety measures to ensure a minimum risk within the remote wilderness: RV excursions.
“Discover America” has been developed in response to the European travel ban and a surge in demand for domestic travel by offering a series of luxury RV excursions that are customized for affluent travelers. Designed to reconnect travels with the natural wonder of the U.S. via a state-of-the-art recreation vehicle, each package is tailored to suit the client’s profile and their required level of on-the-road service or self-sufficiency, while providing authentic experiences along the way. A “Discover America” luxury RV excursion, Overseas Leisure Group says, offers travelers “all the conveniences and comforts of a hotel,” while keeping to secluded areas of the country and being as safe as possible.
A wide array of luxury RVs are available, ranging from compact luxury Mercedes vans for two or three people, up to a 45-foot, converted coach for six people that is fully serviced and includes rooms with a queen- or king-sized bed, full-sized bathrooms, kitchen, laundry facilities, spacious dining area and satellite TVs with 4G Internet. In addition to providing an experienced driver if required, Overseas Leisure Group’s Chase Road Concierge offers an all-inclusive service that provides tech assistance, cleaning, groceries, meals, maintenance, as well as a chauffeur for transportation when the RV is parked. Clients may also choose an alternate mode of transport, including an SUV, convertible car or even a Harley Davidson motorcycle.
“Discover America” offers scenic road trips that are tailored and pre-determined by the required period of travel that can often be up to two weeks for a single trip. From touring the Great Lakes or experiencing Wyoming’s National Parks, such as Grand Teton or Yellowstone, to visiting a ranch in Montana, any type of RV retreat can be planned for any region in the country. Trips can also include staycations at hotels, villas, ranches and resorts along the way that accommodate RVs on-site and encompass activities from cattle drives and archery, to a river rafting camp trip with an Olympic gold medalist.
The following are some examples of the excursions available from “Discover America” by Overseas Leisure Group.
