Everybody has some luxury they indulge in while traveling. Maybe it's a spa treatment, using Frequent Flyer miles to upgrade to Business Class or just an afternoon spent reading a good book without interruption.

What's your favorite luxury when you're traveling? Remember that travel doesn't have to mean some place exotic -- it can be a weekend only an hour from home, too!

Barbara,

My new favorite travel luxury is having a driver meet me at the jet way, take my carry-on, zip me through immigration ahead of the lonnnggg line of travelers with a flash of his ID badge, collect my checked baggage and deliver me to a waiting Jaguar that drives me to my hotel.

A good friend and I recently traveled to Paris to visit her daughter who was studying abroad. As a surprise, her husband arranged for the hotel to send the driver/ guide to accompany us. After a long night sitting in "steerage" (can they make those coach/ economy seats ANY closer together and still fit seated adults in those spaces?), I can't imagine a better welcome to the City of Lights!

I always make time for a spa treatment. Depending on the length of my flight I'll either book it for right when we arrive or after some long, planned sightseeing days. There's nothing more relaxing than a massage and then going back to the hotel room (or a massage in the hotel room - even better!)

When I travel I always take my own pillow and blanket with me. I feel much more rested that way and can enjoy our vacation.

I agree about The Hotel Danieli in Venice -- it is the definition of luxury!

Whatever savings I get on accommodations (for instance, booking 4-star instead of 5) I always spend on nice meals. No matter what city you're in, there's probably a top-tier restaurant somewhere - so why not enjoy the best of local cuisine?
