Did you think concierge services were limited to hotels and other hospitality establishments? Think again! Personal concierge services are booming, thanks largely to the increase in valuing experiences over material possessions, combined with the convenience of living in a largely digital age where you can do just about anything through your smartphone or laptop.
But let’s be real. Personal concierge services are not for “regular people.” They’re designed for and marketed to the uber rich and high-profile celebrities to save time, travel in the most pampered ways and get VIP access to private and/or exclusive events that they otherwise wouldn’t have easy access to — like red carpet happenings.
Here are 10 of the best personal concierge services.
John Paul Group
Through John Paul Group, the world is your oyster, and you’ll have a round-the-clock personal assistant ensuring that everything goes according to plan, even if your plan is made on a whim. JPG will help you organize your experiences to accommodate for all, including last-minute tickets to events, financial services and support during any emergencies. Pricing is not available on the site and you must contact the company via an online form to learn more. This company also offers a loyalty program.
Jetex Concierge offers luxury private yacht charters at premium spots around the world. If you book with this service, you’ll get fully customized itineraries, experienced crews and a suite of high-end amenities. You’ll also get access to sold-out events and access to Michelin-star dining establishments that you otherwise may have a tough time gaining access to. Pricing isn’t available on the site, and interested consumers are instructed to contact the company for more details. You also can buy a plane via the site if you’re so inclined.
Billed as a luxury lifestyle management service, Quintessentially couples the personal dedication of a lifestyle manager with an immense global network, to provide “efficient, individual and comprehensive” offerings, as the site says. Not only does this company give you premium access to exclusive events, it also can help with wedding planning, real estate, education and more.

Both private membership and corporate memberships are available, but you’ll need to chat with reps on the site to get the scoop on pricing.
There’s something about the name of this one that makes it sound especially elite. This company offers a luxury travel and lifestyle agent, concierge services and what it describes as “dedicated extension of your personal office,” presumably meaning you can seamlessly do your work from anywhere with its support. Knightsbridge Circle is highly selective and notes that it strictly limits its membership. Each member or family (up to five people) is paired with a personal manager. And yes, you’ll have to contact the company for pricing.
The Fixer Lifestyle Group

It is partly designed for those who want to see the world, and you can get everything from private tours in museums to explorations with local experts on an exclusive trip. You’ll also get access to events, the ability to book otherwise unattainable reservations, health and well-being services, property and more. Once again, you’ll need to contact the company for pricing.
With a focus on unique luxury travel experiences, Nota Bene is endorsed by Boris Collardi, the former CEO of Julius Baer Bank, who says on the company’s site, “It’s the level of details that Nota Bene seeks to find for its customers, which particular room … names of great people within a hotel.” Nota Bene’s team gives you a full travel and lifestyle management service, with deep knowledge of your particular lifestyle and desires so as to tailor your experiences to your needs.
