JetBlue Announces 'Concierge on Call'

Jaunted: Browsing winter vacation deals yet? Drooling over JetBlue Getaways offers like $359 per person for a 4-day escape to St. Lucia? Then you'll need to know that, if you go through with booking that trip, you have access to JetBlue's newest feature: a Concierge On Call.

The Concierge On Call service is super new (just announced yesterday), super rare (this from a lost-cost carrier?!), and super limited (only for JetBlue Getaways travelers). After booking a package deal with JetBlue, you'll receive the Concierge On Call contact phone number. Use it before and all throughout your trip to any of JetBlue's cities—even international. The service itself is free, but of course anything you book or arrange through it, you'll be paying for.

So what exactly can the JetBlue Concierge do?

According to the official FAQ...

Concierges can offer travel services, business services, and specialty services and answer questions for nearly anything related to your trip. Some examples are location of airports and mass transportation; ATM locations; weather forecasts; local customs & duty requirements; current exchange rates; local visa, and passport requirements; health club referrals and reservations; gift basket delivery arrangements; computer rental referrals and arrangements; messenger service referrals and arrangements; and more.

Not bad, not bad! What they cannot do is a far shorter list with some "duh" things like a JetBlue Concierge can't do anything illegal/unethical for you, run your errands, plan your wedding or come pick you up from the airport. It remains to be seen whether or not a JetBlue Concierge can book you tables at the restaurants within their Terminal 5 at JFK.

As usual when a new service launches, there's a little celebration bonus for you. If you book a Getaway before October 31, 2011 and travel before April 30, 2012, use promo code GET50 for $50 off.
