NEW YORK — Destination Club One Key plans to enter ten additional destinations through 2008, with near-term additions to include Pebble Beach CA, Sonoma County CA, and Kiawah SC, Elite Traveler has learned. One Key offers potential members the option of three Travel Cards: 15, 25, or 45 nights – for use in any increment – in premier homes worldwide through a one-time membership fee of $39,900, $59,900 and $99,900, respectively.“One Key is the next generation destination club,” said Jay Sapovits, founder and CEO of One Key. “We recognize that writing a six-figure check isn’t easy, especially if you don’t have the time to enjoy the large nightly commitment per year. Vacation time is precious so we wanted to offer a simple and flexible solution that allowed travelers to make the most use of their membership, without the considerable upfront capital or long-term commitment.”One Key’s business model is unlike many other clubs that focus on real estate acquisition and asset-building.Currently, members can select from 30 destinations and over 425 homes in locations such as Los Cabos, Maui, St.Barths, Anguilla, Telluride, Bachelor Gulch, and Tuscany. C.“We’re nimble in the sense that we’re not restricted to a pre-selected portfolio of homes and are focused solely on accommodating our membership,” added Sapovits. “Because there are no long-term commitments, we know we have only one opportunity to deliver an unforgettable vacation experience.” Services offered to guests include the procurement of private house staff; reservations and recommendations to restaurants, spas and golf facilities; luxury car or ski rentals; and business services such as high-speed Internet and overnight shipping.www.onekeyworld.com or call 1.877.ONE-KEYW.
