One of the best parts of Inspirato Pass is how easy it is to quickly get value. With a little finesse and planning, you can take more than 20 trips in a year: Take it from Christine Zheng, a Pass Subscriber who’s managed to make the most of her subscription.
Christine, who joined Inspirato in August 2020, recently shared her experience with her first year of Pass in an Inspirato virtual event. She gets great value out of her Pass subscription—so much value, in fact, that she saved close to $90,000 in six months using Pass.
“When I first subscribed to Inspirato Pass, it was all about value: if I paid $2,500 a month I wanted to get $5,000 worth of value. And when I realized how easy that would be with just the high-quality hotels, I subscribed,” she said.
“There’s always fear associated with something like VRBO. The quality is hit and miss, and every time I go on a vacation, I just worry something is going to go wrong,” she said. “Versus Inspirato’s standards: the service level, the amenities—plus all of the supplies are always there. You can always count on that 100% of the time, and I think that is more important than money: the certainty of walking into a home where you know your family is being taken care of.”
I calculate the rate of all the hotels and homes I’ve booked with Inspirato compared to their value on the open market. In six months, I paid about $30,000 for 13 trips with Inspirato, but—check this out—they were valued at $120,000. It’s just phenomenal.Christine ZhengInspirato Pass subscriber
One of Christine’s favorite aspects of Pass, though, is the way it’s allowed her to explore destinations that she wouldn’t have otherwise.
“When you are flexible, Pass gives you tons and tons of options with tremendous value. And sometimes if you don’t understand a place, like, ‘I’ve never been to Scottsdale; I’m not a desert person.’ But I tell myself it’s a great value, it’s worth $4,000, and I can be there in a week from now, why not just go?,” she asks herself. “And sometimes I get lots of great surprises from those trips. Like the Faena hotel in Miami wasn’t on my list, but it turned out to be one of my favorite locations. So it’s really expanded my horizons.”
