Wheels Up Connect members now get benefits at luxury travel subscription provider Inspirato

Wheels Up is expanding its ongoing partnership with Inspirato. The collaboration now extends privileges to all customers of both companies, regardless of membership or subscription tier.

Effective immediately, all Wheels Up Core, Connect, and Business Members have access to a complimentary trial Inspirato Club subscription for up to 12 months, additional Inspirato Pass subscription offers, and access to Inspirato Hot Nights.

Inspirato Club is normally priced at $600 per month, plus a $600 initiation fee. You pay nightly rates when you choose your dates and accommodations. Examples range from rooms at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, to 5,000 square feet homes in Aspen.

Inspirato Pass starts with a $2,500 initiation fee and runs $2,500 per month. It then allows you to book travel at no additional cost. You can have one active reservation at a time. You’re able to book your next trip the day you check out.

Connect members, the entry-level membership, pay $2,950 to join and previously weren’t eligible. Wheels Up Core and Business Members also have access to complimentary Inspirato guest passes.

In turn, all Inspirato subscribers will receive a complimentary six-month Wheels Up Connect or Core membership with no initiation fees. These new benefits will be available during the first year after signing up. Wheels Up Core membership is priced at $17,500 for the first year. There are discounts if you deposit at least $100,000 towards future flights or buy via Costco.
