Make The Most of Your Vacation

On a Monograms independent vacation, we’ll help you feel right at home in your destination—even if it’s your first time visiting there! Before you leave you’ll receive a trip planner, complete with key information. Then, once you arrive at your destination, friendly, professional Local Hosts are on hand to provide you with a destination guide, to offer hints and recommendations to help you get the lay of the land, and to ensure you have what you need to make the most of your time.

Local Host

What’s the best public transportation for getting around town? Is there a good restaurant within walking distance of the hotel? What day is the museum closed? Your Monograms Local Host can tell you. Your Local Host is someone you can count on to give you a warm welcome, to share local insights and suggestions for getting off the beaten path, and to answer your vacation questions.
