A note from the Directors of Extraordinary Whistler Escapes: Jodie Mason.
I began Extraordinary Escapes in response to a critical need in the market place for a travel company that specialised in a destination. I was tired of being misinformed by travel agents who dealt with a multitude of destinations and who did not have the time to focus on getting my holiday right.
Specialising in a destination means that you can have a team of consultants that can literally know everything there is to know about that destination. This in turn means that you can provide information to your clients that no other company can, as it is simply impossible to know everything about all destinations or even everything about ten destinations. I created this company to ensure that Extraordinary Escapes’ clients’ holidays or events receive the attention they deserve.
Extraordinary Escapes business model is also based on the fact that I believe that you cannot provide advice on a destination unless you have personally been there (and not just heard about it from your colleague) and actually stayed there in every accommodation option that you sell (for more than just one night). This is a huge capital investment for a company but it means that Extraordinary Escapes can offer clients information that cannot be found in brochures or on the internet.
As one of the founders and Director of Extraordinary Escapes, I have a law degree and practiced as a lawyer in Sydney and London. I lived overseas for an extended period of time and I was even married on the Amalfi Coast in Italy. My first child was born in London and by the age of one year, he had been on over 30 international flights. I now have four children and we all travel as a family regularly. I have travelled the world extensively, with and without small children, staying in many of the leading hotels of the world. My aim with Extraordinary Escapes is to use my vast travel experience to create the ultimate holiday for Extraordinary Escapes’ clients.
To me personally Whistler is the most amazing ski resort in the world. I have skied all over the world and have been skiing in Whistler for over 20 years. I would like to share my fantastic experiences with others. If you can dream it, Extraordinary Escapes will make it happen
