Big changes are happening at DayAway. In the last month alone, we expanded into lifestyle experiences with our first collection of private yacht escapes and took our first steps into web3 with the launch of the Founder’s Key. The response has been incredible so far and we couldn’t be more grateful! But before 2022 comes to an end, we have another announcement to make. DayAway is evolving from a public marketplace into the ultimate membership and loyalty program for luxury hotel, travel and lifestyle experiences.
Here’s what it means for our community.
The only membership you need.
If you’re a travel, experience and wellness enthusiast, you’re likely juggling multiple memberships and loyalty programs—each with separate logins and systems of their own.
With a DayAway membership, you can access multiple hotel, wellness and lifestyle experiences from the likes of Raffles Hotels and Waldorf Astoria with just one account. Plus, you can build your loyalty status in one place. This makes it easier than ever to unlock exclusive benefits (and you only have to remember one password).
A more personalised service.
Going forward, only members will be able to book experiences through the DayAway platform. This means we can give more time, attention and value to our amazing community. We believe that luxury begins from the moment you book your experience and we want to mirror the level of service that our guests receive from our incredible partners.
As a DayAway member, you’ll get personalised recommendations, invites to exclusive events, access to our ever-expanding collection of curated experiences and so much more. It’s a membership with 5-star service.
Unlock a world of experiences.
Behind the scenes, we’re building a platform that will completely revolutionise the way professionals in the travel industry book experiences on behalf of their clients. That goes for hotel concierges, travel advisors, destination management companies, experience providers and more.
But what does this mean for you, as a DayAway member?
In many cases, concierge services are only available to hotel guests and the only way to book them is from the hotel lobby. But now, thousands of experiences that have never existed online before will be available to book with the click of a button on DayAway—and you don’t have to be a guest at the hotel to access them.
What’s more, we’re onboarding travel advisors and destination management companies all over the world, who will bring their wealth of local knowledge to the DayAway platform. From tours of private art collections, to a tea making ceremony hosted by a family in Japan with a 200 year-old recipe, these unbelievable experiences have been, until now, fairly difficult to find. Where before, you’d have to source individual advisors who specialise in the area you’re travelling to, you can now find luxury experiences from curated local advisors through a personalised service on DayAway.
Join DayAway, your way.
We want to offer this personalised service from the very beginning, which is why there are various ways you can purchase your DayAway membership.
The first, is our classic annual membership at $500 a year, which grants you access to only the best luxury hotel and lifestyle experiences, plus exclusive discounts with our food and beverage partners. All of our early adopters who have booked through DayAway in the past will receive a complimentary DayAway annual membership for 2023.
Then, there’s our most exclusive membership and loyalty program ever. With just 500 in rotation, the Founder’s Key NFT is $2,500 for lifetime access to DayAway, plus an abundance of ever-expanding benefits and utilities.
We’re also working with corporate partners across web2 and web3 who will offer DayAway memberships as perks to a global network of their most valued members. Stay tuned for more on that soon!
The loyalty program of the future.
Expiration dates are one of the biggest pitfalls of traditional travel memberships and loyalty programs. You spend all that time collecting air miles or points, and then, out of nowhere, they disappear. That doesn’t happen with our Founder’s Key NFT, and it’s all thanks to blockchain technology.
Unlike a regular membership, there are no loyalty points with a Founder’s Key (and any of the future NFT memberships we launch). You get immediate rewards and benefits that expand over time, just for being a member. Over time, your accrued rewards can add value to your DayAway membership. And as your Founder’s Key exists on the blockchain, your rewards and benefits become a salable, tradable digital asset. In the future, you can transfer your Founder’s Key (with all its benefits) to a loved one, or sell it at your leisure. For the first time ever, a travel membership can be a form of investment and hold real-world monetary value.
All of these changes we’ve launched over the last month, and everything we’ve been working towards since we started, has led to this announcement. DayAway will be more than a platform for luxury experiences, the DayAway membership will be a luxury experience in itself.
