After a year of being stuck inside, travel lovers are eager to hit the road again. In fact, 61% of working adults are willing to allocate more money to bucket list trips than previously planned. Now, one company is taking that eagerness to the next level. Private vacation club Exclusive Resorts just announced it would be offering its first-ever $1 million travel membership to make all of your bucket list dreams come true.

The pricey membership is a base 10-year Ultra membership with some per diems bundled in. You would work with a personal concierge to pick and choose which trips and destinations make the most sense for you and your family. So, a custom Million Dollar Membership could include an immersive once-in-a-lifetime Journey to multiple continents like Antarctica, Africa, Australia, and Asia. Then you could take a trip aboard the largest private residential ship on the planet—The World—and enjoy a luxurious stay at the private, 10-person Villa Pendio in Lake Como, Italy. The membership could also include a private yacht experience in the Caribbean and a private trip to Peru and Patagonia.

“Exclusive Resorts has seen an increase in Membership inquiries from passionate travelers who are eager to reconnect with family and friends,” James Henderson, CEO of Exclusive Resorts, told Departures. “Now more than ever, people are willing to invest their money, and more importantly, their time, on elevated ‘bucket list-style trips, which is why we created the first-ever $1 Million membership. The fully-customizable membership provides access to bespoke travel experiences like African safaris and private yachting experiences along with access to top cultural events including the Kentucky Derby and F1.”

While the new membership option comes with a high price tag, there are other less expensive membership options. You pay a one-time initiation fee, select the number of days you want to travel each year, and pay one set rate to make the vacations happen. So, that means you’ll always pay $1,395 per Plan Day, even if it’s peak season.
