Launched in 2011, Inspirato is a luxury destination club that gives members access to exclusive vacation rental properties with on-site concierge services that can plan every single detail of specialized itineraries. The app boasts over 900 accommodations in 150 locations. In 2013, the app partnered with American Express to launch Inspirato with American Express, providing additional benefits and discounts to American Express cardholders.

JetSmarter

Price: Free
Category: Travel
App Store | Google Play

JetSmarter is frequently described as the upscale counterpart of Uber, but in this version, cars and drivers are exchanged for private jets and pilots. Members can search and book private flights throughout the U.S., Europe, and the Middle East without the trouble of dealing with brokers, phone calls, or paperwork.

Luxy

Price: Free
Category: Lifestyle
App Store | Google Play

Billed as Tinder for the wealthy, Luxy is a millionaire dating service that makes matchmaking as easy as one swipe. Unlike other services, Luxy looks closely into each member's financial background by asking for his or her annual income and then verifies it by using tax returns. Aside from verification, each Luxy profile is emblazoned with the user's net worth and the logos of brands chosen by the user as a measure of taste. What's more, users need to be Luxy BLACK or Luxy PLATINUM subscribers to send messages to each other. You’ll find a mix of CEOs, executives, supermodels, athletes, and even celebrities with an average income of $200,000 on the app.
