Black Tomato Launches Brand New Bucket List Service

April 28, 2014 Corporate No Comments Email Email

Fresh off the back of winning ‘Travel Brand of the Year’ at the 2014 Travel Marketing Awards, and known for their innovative approach to luxury travel, Black Tomato have launched a personalised Bucket List Service.

It is a natural part of human nature to make lists, resolutions and invent aspirational goals. After conducting some research, Black Tomato can reveal that travel ‘musts’ and wishes make up 78% of the average Bucket List and yet 82% of people felt they’d never actually achieve their entire list.
Selecting the ultimate Bucket List of experiences or moments to do in a lifetime is no easy feat – neither is finding the time to do them. Black Tomato’s new venture aims to provide clients with a distinctive service whereby specialised Bucket List managers work with clients to create and, more importantly, execute their lists.
Black Tomato’s New York based co-Founder, Tom Marchant, states; “Whilst we’ve been helping clients fulfil their bucket list dreams and experiences for years, there’s no one offering a dedicated service that maps your list, prioritises it, provides you with specific bucket list inspiration and evolves it into annual trips that really help you realise each ambition… Even as a seasoned traveller, there are still destinations I am yet to conquer. The accountability of having an actual service to help me achieve this makes it that much more likely I’ll actually get there.”
Using the new online functionality clients can browse adding their ultimate travel experiences to their own bucket list page which they can repeatedly log back into and add to. Upon submission of the list they are assigned a Bucket List Manager – this team of experts is dedicated to reviewing clients’ lists and keeping abreast of all relevant news regarding each destination or specific experience within the list.  It is their responsibility to plot when is good for clients to travel, not only within the year, but within someone’s lifetime.  Most importantly they will annually review the list with the client, reprioritising the list by taking into consideration seasons, budgets, timings, age, destinations, and so on and present them with their next trip to tick off.  The manager will encourage their clients to be accountable for their list and through full annual and biannual reviews of the list they will be kept on track.  We’ll produce a planner for them which act a reminder to again encourage this idea of accountability and a reminder of their promise to fulfil the list.
A Black Tomato Bucket List manager, adds: “As we get older our circumstances change – so people are unsure if they can still achieve what they originally had on their bucket list many years prior.  We say yes, it’s just knowing how. With the right tactical planning you can create some very clever itineraries by knowing someone’s lifetime plans. It’s exciting for us as we’re in the business of sharing insights and knowledge of destinations and as we research a place, spend time there or come across something of interest we can now share it directly with our clients because we know it’s on their personal list.”   
Once your list has been finalised (for the time being), we’ll present you with a hard document and an itinerary for your first trip – so you can rest assured that your list is now fully tangible. From there, we’ll continue to update you, stay in touch and most importantly, execute your Bucket List.

Black Tomato’s Bucket List manager continues: “It’s like being someone’s personal trainer of travel”.
