Following are just a few real-life examples of the endless possibilities available with Spirit Concierge, cited by Spirit:
• When a son was looking to surprise his father with a flight in an old WWII fighter plane, MyAssist found two hangers that housed the aircraft and offered rides, and also found two upcoming air shows in the area where the customer was able to also ride the legendary P51 Mustang.
• Travel emergencies are another area of specialty. MyAssist found 4x4 SUVs to get customers to the airport during snowstorms when all other vehicles were stuck.
• MyAssist can also help customers run errands when thousands of miles away. A New York City business professional needed to find a rare text book for her son’s college course. MyAssist not only found the book at the right price, but arranged for a courier service to pick up and deliver the book to the customer’s son in southern California on the same day.
MyAssist offers a live-agent personal assistance and concierge service for individuals and companies from the Noel Group. MyAssist was created by John Noel, founder of travel-insurance giant TravelGuard, to provide individuals and organizations around-the-clock access to experts in travel and reservation services, online research, emergency services and medical assistance.
