Allstar Coaches is the leading renter of luxury RVs in the United States and has launched its most luxurious vacation package in the company’s 13-year history. The Caribbean Jetsetter allows the ultra-high-end consumer to experience the Caribbean Islands in a way they never have before: in a luxury RV. These one-of-a-kind custom vacation tours begin at $50,000.
The Caribbean Jetsetter is a two-part vacation consisting of the luxury RV portion and then a “sea” aspect where customers charter a private yacht through one of Allstar’s many yachting partnerships. The RV tour features a custom itinerary complete with destinations, excursions and menu planning. The second component allows customers to hit the open seas without a care in the world, guided by their own personal captain.
All Caribbean Jetsetter vacation tours begin on the coast in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Allstar Coaches also has partnerships with Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises and Azamara Cruise Lines. In 2005, Allstar Coaches set out to fill a missing niche in the RV rental marketplace with the introduction of luxury motorhome rentals. While many companies were providing average RVs for rent, none were hitting the high-end luxury market.
There are many people who want to combine the adventure of RVing with the luxury amenities offered by five-star resorts. Allstar Coaches has created luxury in the RV rental industry through the dedication of bringing the luxury hotel experience to those who also wish to enjoy the excitement of the open road. Have you seen an RV experience this luxurious before?

With the assistance of the Wellness Tourism Association, here are a few easy ways to try and work wellness into your travels so you don’t feel like you need a vacation from each of your trips!
