Frequently asked questions
Still have questions about how the travel planning process works, what benefits you may receive, or travel in general? We’ve outlined some of our most frequently asked questions below! Don’t see your question? Contact us and a travel advisor would be happy to assist.
Why should I use a River Oaks Travel concierge?
Some of the top benefits to working with our advisor team:
- Customized itinerary creation designed to perfectly match your style and needs
- First-hand expertise in destinations and travel products around the world
- Skillfull and detail-oriented handling of complicated travel logistics
- Added perks and amenities at luxury properties

Does it cost more to work with a travel concierge?
If you need help with a comprehensive and custom designed itinerary, a flat travel planning fee may apply to cover the extensive time your concierge puts into every trip. Our travel concierge team is so much more than a 1-800 number or online booking engine and adds both tangible and intangible values. We’re here to help you navigate travel and testing requirements, match you to the perfect hotels and experiences, and be available 24/7 in case you need assistance during a trip. We also provide added value and benefits through our membership in Virtuoso and other hotel partnerships, including complimentary breakfast, upgrades, resort credits, and more. Already know what hotel you want? Our advisors are happy to book it and add value complimentary – our rates should be the same as booking online, even with our added perks!
Should I use you for a short hotel stay or domestic trip?
Absolutely! While many of our travelers come to us for big international trips, our advisors are happy to assist with weekend trips or short stays, regardless of the destination. (For example, did you know the Post Oak Hotel here in Houston offers our travelers complimentary breakfast and a $100 food & beverage credit?)
Can you travel during the COVID-19 pandemic?
Our travel concierge team has been helping travelers to plan enjoyable vacations during the pandemic. We can help you determine which destination is a good fit, what resorts have the highest cleanliness standards, and how to minimize your risk when traveling. With our contacts on-property and on tourism boards, we are also staying up-to-date on current travel guidelines and can keep you apprised of any changes.
