The thought of Kanye West catching a bus to go to a music studio or Steven Spielberg cycling to the Hollywood Studios seems strange. That is because the rich and famous have always found eye-catching ways to travel.
Read on to find out about how having deep pockets can make travelling a lot more interesting.
A private jet is a must-have vehicle for any celebrity who wants to travel the world away from the prying eyes of the public and to avoid standing in line at the airport. Famous jets include the private plane of the Sultan of Brunei – which is fitted with solid gold washbasins – and the US Presidential plane Air Force One. The President’s plane includes fully-fitted conference rooms, full flights of stairs and even an operating theatre in case the President falls seriously ill during a flight.
Limousines have been used by the rich and famous for over a hundred years. They have been the transport of choice for everyone from Hollywood actresses such as Audrey Hepburn to mega-platinum musicians like Lady Gaga. Spacious legroom and champagne on ice make riding in a limousine a truly A-list way to travel. Nowadays limo hire in Perth is inexpensive, so limousines can be enjoyed by anybody.
Whether taking a bride to a wedding ceremony or taking a stag party around the city,limousines are a fantastic way to travel in style and comfort. Why not hire a limo in Perth from Limousine Royalty for the next special occasion?
The Bugatti Veyron is the fastest street car in the world and can reach speeds of up to 430 km/h. The different Veyron models cost between $2.2 million and $3.5 million dollars, so don’t expect to be able to afford to buy one anytime soon. That is the price before adding in the costs of running and maintaining the Veyron. Pop royalty Beyonce spent $2.6 million on a Veyron for her husband Jay-Z’s 41st birthday, which is not a bad present at all.
This may sound like it is too good to be true, but space tourism actually exists. In 2001, entrepreneur Dennis Tito became the first ever self-funded space tourist when he paid an eye-watering $26 million dollars to spend 8 days aboard a space shuttle as a crew member.
Whilst space tourism is definitely out of range for ordinary people at the moment, Virgin Airlines boss Richard Branson has launched the Virgin Galactic space program and eventually aims to make space travel available to as many people as possible. Who knows, in a couple of decades it may be cheaper to fly to the Moon than Morroco.
Some of the ways in which the rich and famous travel may be out of reach, but there are many ways for ordinary people to travel in style too!
