Looking for travel bargains? Don't look here. Elite Traveler magazine caters to the "ultra wealthy," consumers whose net worth exceeds $1 million. The oversized, 10-by-13-inch volumes are distributed primarily onboard private jets and mega-yachts, as well as in high-end country clubs, lounges, spas, and professional sports locker rooms worldwide. The March/April edition offers a collection of custom vacation packages designed to allow participants to follow in the footsteps of history's most intrepid and courageous explorers -- at considerably more expense. Travelers can view the Titanic from a three-person deep-sea submersible on a 10-day adventure for about $35,000 per person, take a supersonic flight to the edge of space with elite Russian military-trained, English-speaking test pilots for $6,500 to $39,500, or live onboard the International Space Station for 10 days for $20 million. Travelers who just haven't gotten around to buying that private jet can subscribe for $147 a year at www.elite-traveler.com.
