Sometimes, you want to plan your holiday on a budget. But other times, you want to splash out and really treat yourself. If you want to feel like you're special when you're on your trip, it's not difficult to do. If you have the money, you can pay for anything you want. However, even if you're not extremely rich, you could still be treated like royalty if you know how. There are some tricks you can use to get reduced prices, even if you can't get things for nothing at all. Whether you've got cash to spare or you want to spend less, try these tips to create a VIP experience.
Select the Best Accommodation
If you want your trip to feel like luxury, you should start by finding somewhere comfortable to stay. There are many different choices of accommodation, from budget options to 5-star hotels. Depending on what you're used to, any of them could feel like luxury to you. If you choose a hotel, you don't have to go to the top-end of the market to find something exclusive. Many 4-star hotels are also excellent options. If you want luxury for less, you might consider renting an apartment or house. It can be more affordable, especially when the cost is shared with others.
Join Exclusive Clubs
One of the best ways to create a VIP experience is to join exclusive clubs. You can find them everywhere, from airports to hotels and even events. For example, if you attend a Grand Prix event, you could benefit from being in the Formula One Paddock Club. Among other things, you'll have access to fine dining and open bars. If you stay in a hotel, they often have executive clubs which come with extra benefits. You can use lounges, bars and other facilities that other guests can't access. Even when you're travelling, being able to use an exclusive airport lounge is useful.

Take Private Tours
Going on a tour when you're travelling is a great way to explore somewhere new. But why join a group tour when you can book a private one? You can find many tours that will show you around cities, galleries and museums or other locations. They often don't cost a lot more than joining a larger group tour. However, you can spend more on an exclusive experience if you want access to a larger range of activities.
Even if you keep your budget tight on other aspects of your trip, it's worth spending extra on transport. Nothing will make you feel less like a VIP than experiencing poor transport. Whether you upgrade to first class on the plane or hire a private driver to get around, you can make your travel more comfortable. In some cases, you can ensure you won't experience any delays. Even if you do have to wait for a flight or train, you will usually be cared for if you have paid more for your ticket.
It's easy to turn any trip into a VIP experience if you know how. You don't have to be swimming in money, although it does help.
