FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., July 17, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Traveling in a luxury RV rental just got even better. Allstar Coaches is paving the way and setting new standards in the luxury motorhome rental market. RV rentals continue to grow in popularity. The Recreational Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) attributes this growth to flexibility and convenience, comfort, family appeal, affordability, lure of the outdoors, versatility and availability of rental RVs.
Rob Tischler, CEO of Allstar Coaches (www.allstarcoaches.com), reports that its firm has seen a large increase in RV rental sales due to soaring airfares.
“People are tired of not having control over when and how they travel,” Tischler says. “Our luxury RV rentals ensure that people travel in style – on their own terms.”
Renting a luxury RV also allows people to travel with pets; this is often a concern for families looking to hit the road. The benefits and advantages to RV rentals are numerous.
For example, many customers want to combine the adventure of RVing with luxury, five-star hotel amenities. As a result, Allstar offers its clients an array of high-level concierge services that include anything from arranging private chefs and drivers to full itinerary and customized route planning.
“Whether a client wants to hot air balloon at sunrise or ski down a sand dune at sunset, we can make it happen. Our RV renters quickly discover what sets us apart from the rest of the industry,” Tischler says. “We are truly a hotel on wheels. All of our luxury RV rentals boast fully-equipped kitchens, satellite television, hotel-style bedding, fresh towels and ECO Spa bath amenities. It’s the little things that make a big difference.”

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., July 11, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Destination Earth (www.destination-earth.org) has announced the launch of an all-inclusive luxury camping experience. This concept is the brain-child of Jud Yaski and Steve Juba, co-founders. Unlike traditional “glamping” companies that are stationary, Destination Earth has created a resort that travels to the best destinations in California.
All they require is a water source, a beautiful environment, and access by car or boat.
“Destination Earth brings the comfort of your home into the wilderness. Isolated lakes and remote white water rivers are transformed into a plush private resort literally overnight,” says Jud Yaski, co-founder. “We also provide a fresh way to experience nature in comfort at tourist destinations such as Mendocino, California wine country, Monterey, Yosemite, and other locations upon request.”
Destination Earth’s mobile resort includes a portable hot tub, hot showers, a bar, queen size full height beds, remote control lighting, cabin tents, night stands and a mirror, and even an inflatable couch.
Gourmet meals are artfully prepared by a private chef; in a complete kitchen featuring a full size propane fridge, shelving, propane ovens and stoves, and yes, the kitchen sink complete with hot pressure water.
Evenings bring large screen movies projected with a low power LED projector, music, and interactive games. Powered by a solar array, all this luxury sits elegantly in a low carbon footprint.
All Inclusive eco glamping trips are offered on the website www.destination-earth.org. Additionally, the company is available for hire for team building, corporate retreats, family gatherings, incentive travel, and as a venue for weekly retreat organizations.
All of the pre-planned trips offer outdoor activities such as sailing, kayaking, whitewater rafting, horseback riding and more. Many trips feature the highlights of the unique areas they are hosted in. All inclusive 3 and 4 day trips start at $359, making the experience accessible to all want-to-be glampers.
For more information on the next adventure, or to design a custom glamping experience, visit http://www.destination-earth.org/ or call 650-533-5487. If you are press and would like to join us on a complimentary adventure, please call for availability.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., May 31, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — According to Allstar Coaches, the RV rental industry is poised to have its best year ever; thanks in part to the highest airfares seen in more than three decades. The airline industry’s seemingly relentless commitment to create innovative new ways to bilk consumers is finally driving them away. With no end in sight, even with fuel prices steadily declining, the cost of air travel continues to rise, reaching levels that travelers haven’t seen since Congress was forced to step in with the Airline Deregulation Act in 1978.
RV rental companies such as Florida based Allstar Coaches, appear to be the largest beneficiaries of the airline industry’s antics and are reaping the rewards. Allstar, who specializes in luxury motorhome rentals, is reporting their highest volume since opening in 2006.
“For years airlines have been taking more and doing less. The public has had enough and is finally pushing back,” said Rob Tischler, CEO of Allstar. “Now that the levy has broken, we are here to help pick up the pieces,” he adds. Now, to add just a bit more salt to an already gaping wound, the TSA along with several major airlines have proposed to double the mandatory security fee on every ticket sold.
Doreen Santos, a registered nurse who resides in Allentown, Pa. with her husband and three boys, was shocked when she learned that airfare to Orlando that usually cost her about $200 per person was now going for more than $500. Determined not to give up their vacation, the family decided to rent an RV and make the journey to Florida part of their adventure.
“We’ve gone to Disney every year since the kids were born. I couldn’t even imagine having to tell them we couldn’t go this year,” said Santos. “My kids were ecstatic when they found out we were taking an RV. When all was said and done, without the hotels and airfare, we saved about $2700.”
Families looking to head out on the highways in an RV can save money at virtually every turn. Without the added burden of overpriced hotels and airfares, there isn’t a need for rental cars or expensive restaurants. Allstar’s rental units are equipped with full functional kitchens, spacious, comfortable cabins and come outfitted with everything one would expect to find in a luxury vacation rental. “Ours just happen to have a couple sets of wheels attached,” said Von Isanogle, Allstar’s fleet manager.
With the exorbitant price of airfares and nickel and dime fees airlines charge for baggage, seating and food, it’s no wonder travelers are looking for alternatives. RVing is one that offers travelers the comforts of home and the convenience of traveling on their own time.

NEW YORK, N.Y., March 6, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Fare Buzz, a travel company located in New York City, has been growing their corporate travel division over the past year to cater to large and small companies for their travel needs. The division aims to help businesses save both time and money with their business travel needs.
“Most companies realize they need to travel in order to stay competitive and grow their business,” said Tom Ciccone, Director of Corporate Sales for Fare Buzz. “The paradigm becomes how efficient can we execute the travel program within our company. In other words how can we fly smarter?”
According to a recent study from the U.S. Travel Association, companies have spent roughly $246 Billion each year over the past few years. Taking the time to travel and meet with customers, or potential customers, face-to-face has been shown to increase the return on investment of travel expenses. The study also found that excluding business travel can cause a company to lose up to 17 percent of potential profits.
“We actually see an increase of business travel from our smaller companies in economic down turns,” said Ciccone. “This stems from a need to offer a more competitive edge in the face to face interaction with new or existing clients to help them compete with their larger rivals.”
Fare Buzz aims to make corporate travel effective for the company, but convenient for the person actually doing the traveling. They work with corporations of all sizes to stay in compliance and make sure each client is getting the best value for their business travel needs. Fare Buzz helps develop travel programs for companies that do not have a traditionally managed travel program in place. In addition, their Account Managers assist companies to maximize the benefits of managed travel program currently in place within their organizations.
About Fare Buzz:
Started in 1994 in New York City, Fare Buzz is one of the leading travel providers in the industry. The company has created affiliations with vendors of various travel products. Due to Fare Buzz’s buying power, the company is able to negotiate aggressive deals on air, hotels, car rentals and now vacation rentals to pass the savings on to the consumer.
In addition, Fare Buzz also specializes in discounted business class fares and offers an attractive rewards program for customers. For additional information, please contact Margaret Yekulis at email@example.com.
