Over a year and a half ago, United Signature Service was launched. As the name would suggest, it’s elevated (or VIP) concierge airport services meant to make your travel more seamless. United says ‘we can provide a luxury concierge service to make your journey through the airport and beyond stress-free and as relaxing as possible.’ Though when piloted it didn’t include lounge access, now it does. It’s priced at around $250 per person for standard departure, connection, or arrival service, $325 for two, and $400 for 3. Though the service may be useful for some cases, like when a minor or an elderly person is travelling alone, the price is hefty, for which most won’t make such a hire. But if you could enjoy the perks of the service without any additional fees, that would be nice…and now there’s a way to do so.
I wrote some time ago about how I made use of a Marriott 7-night + flight package to book a nice warm week in Vietnam’s Phu Quoc island toward the end of the year. I thought it was a pretty decent deal for me, as I had a surplus of SPG/Marriott points compared to airline miles. But now for a limited time, Marriott Rewards Gold and Platinum Elite members can enjoy complimentary United Signature Service for two.
- You book a RewardsPlus night + flight package here
- You fly on United or United Express
- You fly from/to/through one of the five domestic airports that provide Signature Service: Chicago, Los Angles, Newark, Houston, San Francisco
This would be much nicer if it included the international airports in which the service is offered too: London Heathrow, Amsterdam, Munich, Frankfurt, Paris Charles de Gaulle.
In conclusion, though most wouldn’t pay for United Signature Service, if you were considering a Marriott 7-night + flights package, then add this limited time offer to your calculations. I certainly wouldn’t mind some VIP service at the airport.
