Western & Oriental Chairman's Club

Welcome to the Western & Oriental Chairman's Club; our invitation-only bespoke travel service designed to deliver truly personalised, round-the-clock service to our most elite clients. Whatever your travel request, whether it's one night away at a luxury UK hotel, an extended driving tour of the USA or a wedding on a remote island, no request is too big or small for us to handle.

All members of the Chairman’s Club enjoy the service of a dedicated Account Manager; one, named point of contact who will get to know you and your travel preferences inside out in order to offer you a truly tailored, intuitive service. Account Managers are highly knowledgeable, with years in the industry and always incredibly well-travelled themselves, so that they can give you the quality of advice and insight that only comes from personal experience.

You may imagine that such a bespoke travel service comes at a premium, but we are passionate about providing the same, high levels of value to our Chairman's Club members are we are to any other client. Our strong reputation in the industry and long-established relationships with world-leading airlines, resorts and hotels mean that we can make you a promise: you will never pay more with the Chairman's Club than if you booked your holiday yourself.

Our service goes far beyond flights and accommodation, and attention to detail is something that we pride ourselves on. Your Chairman's Club Account Manager is supported by a Personal Assistant, who will take care of all of the finer details of your trip, from dinner reservations to pillow preferences. Also passionate about travel, Chairman's Club PAs are experts at what they do and will move heaven and Earth to create holiday perfection.

Having worked in the travel industry for more than 15 years, I'm incredibly proud and fortunate to be able to say I've truly seen the world. I can honestly say there are not too many countries that I've not been to, although my wish list seems to grow longer every year as I'm constantly finding new hotspots and chic locations.

Our Chairman's Club is all about personal service. For me, it's important to bring my personality into my job, and it allows me to build a relationship with my customers which is not only based on trust, expertise and knowledge, but also an underlying senses that if you have some ideas and I don't think they will be right for you, I will always tell you. In the Chairman’s Club we get to know you over time, manage every aspect of your holiday from start to finish, and I have meticulous attention to detail to take care of the finer aspects of your travels. I'll quite often receive a brief with just a country or two, and it’s left up to me to work my professional magic to find the right holiday and itinerary based on your needs. This is a challenge I really enjoy, and no two days are ever the same.

I have a real passion for the Caribbean Islands, having visited over 35 of the 51 islands, and likewise I have a new favourite which is the USA and Canada (so much to see in both places). I have travelled Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America extensively too, and have a reputation as a "Bounty Hunter" - apparently someone who loves tropical islands, which is certainly true. We are all about first-hand knowledge and service, which means I have stayed in many of the world's very best hotels and have extensive knowledge of what's hot in terms of current trends and destinations. This also means we are on first-name terms with many of our travel partners who assure our Chairman's Club customers the very best attention.

So whether you love to lounge at Sandy Lane in Barbados, snorkel with the Whale Sharks at Four Seasons Landaa Giravaru in the Maldives, or want to pamper yourself on a wellness escape to Chiva Som in Thailand, I can really help you turn a nice holiday into a memorable occasion, with no details overlooked nor too small for attention. There's plenty to see, so see it in style!

Tom’s Highlights

  • Arranged a private suite overlooking the Ball Drop in New York on New Year’s Eve. Usually something that can only be arranged as part of a large group, but I arranged for a family on a bespoke basis as one of their lifetime ‘must do’s’.
  • Organised a surprise private jet with chauffeur service to collect a client’s girlfriend, where he whisked her to the South of France to her favourite restaurant to propose – she said yes!
  • Private whale shark snorkelling and sailing experience in Ningaloo Reef in Australia.
  • Private dining experience created by Marco Pierre White in Tuscany
  • Front row seats to the Dior fashion show in Paris, money can’t buy tickets!
