The only reason anyone joins a destination club is to travel. We know this proven model maximizes our members' ability to travel to the destinations they want, when they want, and ensures a higher level of manageable service and enjoyable amenities that set LUSSO apart.
Minneapolis, MN, (PRWEB) October 18, 2007
The LUSSO Collection -- an exclusive destination club providing members unlimited access to a collection of multi-million dollar residences in the world's most sought-after vacation destinations (http://www.lussocollection.com) -- announced today that it has signed more than 100 members since officially launching the luxury travel destination club in June 2006 with 30 members.
The boutique club -- designed with a 550-member cap -- boasts the best members-to-property ratio in the industry at 5.5:1 and member satisfaction at close to 100 percent for the club's properties, availability, service and economic security, according to a recent member survey.
"In little over a year, The LUSSO Collection has grown its membership base more than 200 percent," notes Steve Greer, LUSSO founder, CEO and president. "We believe our "cherry-picked" homes, one tier of individual membership, truly personalized service and financial transparency initiative--DepositTrust™--provide members the best value, luxury experience, economic security and, all important, availability in the category."
In light of the recent merger of two competing clubs to form a bigger club, LUSSO is sticking to and delivering on its smaller-is-better luxury travel model. "People are affirming our small-by-design strategy and joining the club at a swift pace," Greer adds. "The only reason anyone joins a destination club is to travel. We know this proven model maximizes our members' ability to travel to the destinations they want, when they want, and ensures a higher level of manageable service and enjoyable amenities that set LUSSO apart."

The company is based in the Twin Cities area in Minnesota.
