Common misconceptions about Inspirato, debunked
Misconception #1: Inflated pricing
With a monthly fee of $2,550 for Inspirato Pass, you may ask, ‘Is Inspirato Pass worth it?‘. We know our subscribers want to get the best value from their subscription. There are numerous positive Inspirato reviews from real members that are genuinely happy with the value and savings they receive from their subscription. Take it from Christine Zheng, an Inspirato Pass member since August 2020, who has managed to make the most of her subscription by taking more than 20 trips in a year. Or take it from Passholder, Troy Shay, who has taken 27 Inspirato trips in just one year.
This 2023 Inspirato Pass review from Pass members, Phil and Erin Lockwood, reveals real pricing breakdowns from two recent Inspirato stays at Newport Coast’s The Resort at Pelican Hill and Fort Lauderdale’s Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach, showcasing the incredible value they get through their Pass membership. For Pelican Hill, they write, “Book it through Pelican Hill and it will set you back almost $40k for those same 5 nights. We ‘paid’ just under $2,500 (29 Inspirato Pass days) through Inspirato. That’s about 94% below retail.”

They then go on to say, “just 5 days later—we’re spending 13 nights in a 1,200 square foot oceanfront high-rise residence in the Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach.” The Lockwoods were able to get 85% off retail pricing by booking the trip with their Inspirato Pass membership.
Here’s the cost breakdown provided on their website:
Inspirato’s cancellation policies are designed to help you book with confidence. Although our policies vary based on each subscription, there are no long-term commitments, and cancellation is available at any time. Tim White, author of the Milepro travel blog and real Inspirato Pass member, does a very nice job of explaining the cancellation policies for each Inspirato service in layman’s terms. You can also see the cancellation policies through the Inspirato website or contact us directly for any additional questions you may have.
Misconception #3: One reservation at a time
Inspirato Club gives you the flexibility to reserve as many trips as you’d like. And, although this is also true for Inspirato Pass, there is one caveat. Since Inspirato Pass trips are “paid for” with the 370 Inspirato Pass Days allotted per year (instead of cash up front), members will need to be strategic on how they want to use them.
Each time a Pass reservation is made, members decide how many Pass Days they’d like to use on that specific trip—it all depends on how far out they book and how many Pass Days a trip is worth (see the Inspirato Pass section above for more info on the Pass subscription and how Pass Days work). So, once the reservation is booked, they will need to wait until their Pass is active again to make another Pass reservation.
Many Inspirato members have purchased more than one Pass subscription to give them even more freedom in booking trips with Pass.
Misconception #4: Limited variety of properties
Inspirato prides itself on offering luxury accommodations in over 150 destinations around the world—with over one million trips to choose from. As the semi-nomadic Inspirato Pass lovers, Phil and Erin Lockwood, put it, “We’ve already traveled through Inspirato to Belize, Costa Rica, The Bahamas, and the British Virgin Islands, as well as Los Cabos, Riviera Maya, San Miguel de Allende, Punta Mita, and Puerto Vallarta in Mexico—but those are just a fraction of Inspirato’s footprint in the region.”
See below for a highly detailed map showcasing the many luxury properties around the world within the Inspirato Collection. FYI: This map will change as we continuously add more properties and destinations for our members to enjoy each year.
In addition to the 700+ accommodations offered in the Inspirato Collection, we must also highlight the additional experiences available to Inspirato members around the globe. With over 150 highly curated, luxury cruises and experiences available each year, members can go just about everywhere. Among the plethora of excursions, discover the hilltop villages and waterfalls of Sri Lanka on a 10-day adventure or embark on a 12-day expedition through the wild archipelago of the Arctic.
Misconception #5: Incentivized current members
As is the case with many other subscription programs, all Inspirato members are eligible to receive travel perks when participating in our referral program. Introducing others to Inspirato is the best way to help us grow, which also allows us to continue adding breathtaking properties to the portfolio and expand our destination reach for members to explore.
Is Inspirato worth it? Inspirato reviews from real members
Still wondering if Inspirato is worth it? Below are just a few blog posts, videos, and reviews from real members that highlight their positive experience with Inspirato.
In their recent Inspirato Pass review, Phil and Erin Lockwood, creators of the Always be Changing travel blog whom we mentioned above, share how their family of five has been traveling the globe over the past two years by taking dozens of trips through their Inspirato Pass membership.
Another Inspirato Passholder, Brian, created his own personal blog—Luxury Pass Review—that he dedicates to writing specifically about his positive experience with his Inspirato Pass membership. In his blog, he highlights the incredible value it adds for him and his family of four. His excitement for Inspirato Pass and getting the most out of his membership is evident.
He then touches on a fundamental point of the added perks of being an Inspirato Pass subscriber by writing, “For whatever reason, if you find yourself unable to travel for some period of time, or just get excited about one of the offerings, Beyond Travel can be a fantastic way to utilize your Pass Days.” You can access the full blog post here.
Here is a video of real Inspirato member, Charlotte Walsh, describing her incredible experience with Inspirato Pass:
New Inspirato Pass member, Tim White, recently wrote an in-depth Inspirato review on his experience with Inspirato Pass. In his review, he notes, “You could argue that Inspirato is good for anyone who wants a luxury travel experience bundled into a monthly subscription, and that is absolutely true.”
And according to this in-depth Inspirato Pass review from The Points Guy, a travel website and blog that helps consumers figure out how to make the most of travel rewards programs and experiences, several Passholders are pleased with their Pass experiences thus far.
Pass subscriber Mike Shaw was already an Inspirato member when he decided to add a Pass onto his membership. He’s already taken three trips, to Jackson Hole, the British Virgin Islands, and Park City. He appreciates the ease with which trips can be booked through the list, taking out the mental energy of coordinating an open-ended trip.
“With the flat fee you don’t have to evaluate whether this place is too much or, if you have more people, will that be too much for them?” Shaw said. “You can just look at what you want to do, where are those days available and what’s the most I can get?” What really sold him in the end: “What you pay versus what you would be having to pay.”
