London, UK 20 April 2010 Bon Vivant, the concierge and lifestyle management service based in London, has reported a sharp increase in membership numbers since the start of the year. Owner, Emyr Thomas, said we have seen a large increase in interest and new members over the last few months as the economy and confidence continue to improve.
However, we believe the main reason for the increase in members is that people value and appreciate our highly personalised and bespoke approach and that were more affordable than most concierge companies – Bon Vivant captures the ethos of the times by providing luxury services with value for money and great service, which is what we all want.
Historically, most people have been priced out of the concierge industry, but Emyr continued a concierge service is aimed at people with insufficient time to manage their lifestyle and who want the best service, access and benefits, and, until now, you needed to pay a large premium for these services. However, at Bon Vivant, we have made the concierge industry more accessible and affordable through reasonable fees and by giving our members access to complimentary benefits and discounts at hotels, restaurants, spas and a large range of other lifestyle services that they would not otherwise be able to obtain, that more than compensates for the membership fee.
Focusing on personal service is another key feature of Bon Vivants services, with Emyr commenting: we realised that those who use a concierge service want a personalised and bespoke service, and to speak to the same individual every time, not to have to endure a call centre approach or pay a huge premium for a personal relationship. Therefore, all Bon Vivant members are allocated their own personal concierge whom they can contact directly at all times by phone, mobile, email, text or social networking sites. Our one membership level structure ensures that all of our members receive the same great service. Londoners seem to agree that Bon Vivant has firmly raised the bar.
