Concierge Services

Hi All,

I was undertaking the (thankless obviously) task of looking for slightly better interest rates for my savings account, and spotted the fact that UBS has a concierge service on their more expensive offering. These are obviously also available as part of various other deals, usually with credit cards.

So I was wondering if people had much experience with these concierge services. Are any of them any good, or are they just an opportunity to listen to Vivaldi's Four Seasons for an hour before some spotty teenager types my query into Google?

All I can say is that they are very very good.

You'd be surprised what you can ask for - and what they can and will organise.

Re: Concierge Services

Old thread i know. But I've been thinking about trying these services. Any recent experience?

For making bookings and the like.. Stuff I can do myself but just run out time sometimes.. For example i was trying to book ski lessons for one kid somewhere which had a creche available at the same time for other kid. Or calling around baby sitters at xxx resort for availability on xxx weekend.

Yeah it's not rocket science but took me a bit of googling and few phone calls back and forward to match things up, which can be a pain while at work.
