Travel, Shop And Save This Christmas

Australian-based boutique travel consultancy, LA Experience has just made Christmas shopping a whole lot more fun this festive season - by combining a Christmas shopping expedition with a luxury holiday in Los Angeles, timed perfectly to coincide with what can only be described as the biggest annual retail sale in the United States, the Thanksgiving super sales in late November.

Grab your friends, mother and sister, and head over to the States for a five-night escape and tick everyone off your Christmas shopping list at the same time. Across the Thanksgiving weekend guests can expect to bag some truly incredible bargains from some of the most loved US brands like Nike, Coach, Calvin Klein, DKNY, Polo Ralph Lauren, Guess and Gap offering up to 70% off.

Leading department stores like Nordstrom, Macys and Bloomingdales are the ultimate shopping meccas, where it would be impossible not to find the perfect present – and Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware are homeware heaven, perfect for dressing the home for Christmas. LA Experience know exactly where to go and a driver is on hand to collect the mountain of shopping bags at each stop - no sore arms on this tour!

It’s not all about buying for others on this trip, it is also the perfect opportunity to sneak in some much deserved pampering time and to enjoy LA like never before. Take a break with your girlfriends before the silly season really kicks off at home and come back rejuvenated and prepared for all of the holiday events.

Guests stay in luxury five-star accommodation at the Montage Beverly Hills and the all-inclusive itineraries include private stylist appointments, a visit to Rodeo Drive, an indulgent afternoon of pampering, lunch at celebrity hotspot The Ivy, and a private driver each evening at some of the coolest restaurants and bars in LA. Fancy seeing Michael Buble perform? That can be arranged too.

Kate, mother of four and a recent LA Experience guest said, “I had an amazing five nights of luxury and I got to see LA in a way I never could have accessed on my own. I also snapped up birthday presents for the year and a few Christmas ones too. My kids love Lego and I was able to buy a whole stack for an unbelievable price and I also purchased a timeless Ralph Lauren trench coat for my daughter that was marked down from USD$250 to USD$70, which she just loves. The prices were amazing and so too was the access to brands that we just can’t get in Australia.”

The only thing you have to arrange is who to go with - the rest is taken care of by LA Experience. And if hubby insists on coming along then no need to worry, he is catered for via a concurrent sports tour – offering a private suite to watch the action of the NBA (basketball) and NFL (ice hockey) leaving you to get down to business.

The itinerary kicks-off in LA on 27th November and prices start from USD$3,950 for four nights all inclusive.

27th Nov – 2nd Dec
7th Apr – 14th Apr
22nd May – 27th May
