Travel Itinerary – Trip Planner
HOW IT WORKS
CREATING A CUSTOM JOURNEY with only $80/hour
- Initial Inquiry
After receiving your inquiry, you will be paired with a travel specialist familiar with your destination. You’ll built a travel profile through an online form. The more details you can provide about yourself, your travel habits, likes and dislikes, favorite hotels and experiences, family’s activities, etc, the better equipped we will be to create a truly customized itinerary to suit your travel needs.
- Selecting Hotels & Flights
Our first priority will be to match you with the most appropriate accommodations. Our specialist will make personalized suggestions with rates and availability. We’ll send you our ideas (with links) via email. If you need assistance with flights, your specialist will send you a report with the best available rates in the market.
- Adding Touring, Restaurants, And Activities
After your accommodations are set, we will propose ideas for tours, activities and special experiences. The syntax of ‘Travel Itinerary – Trip Planner‘: Depending on the destination, you may also receive a file with our favorite restaurants and insider tips. In some cases, we will use our preferred guides and resources to tailor make your on-the-ground experience, while in others (depending on budget and time constraints) you may want to make arrangements directly through the hotel. If you prefer for us to work with the hotel concierge on your behalf to arrange restaurant reservations, tours, and spa treatments, we are happy to do so for a fee of $50 per hour.
- Reviewing The Itinerary
Once you receive your final itinerary, you will have an opportunity to review it and make adjustments. Your “Custom Journey” includes up to two iterations of an itinerary. If you would like to make further adjustments beyond that, or if you would like any last-minute assistance in the two weeks prior to departure, there will be an additional fee of $50 per hour.
- Departure ‘Travel Itinerary – Trip Planner’ Package
At least two weeks prior to your departure, your package of the 10 files will be complete. Your itinerary will include an overland trip planner, contact details, meeting spots and specific timing as well as any supplemental material we may have for the destination, such as shop and restaurant suggestions. Any last-minute details will be sent as an addendum via email. Prior to your arrival, we will reconfirm all arrangements with your guides and ground handlers, so please let us know any and all specific preferences you may have. We will also make sure that you are on the list for VIP treatment and first priority upgrades if available.
- During The Trip & When You Return
If you experience any complications while on your trip you will find the contact numbers of our local specialists on your itinerary. We always advise contacting a local resource for any emergencies (for example one of our 150 tour guides). While you are on your trip and when you return, we welcome honest and specific feedback about your hotels, guides, and excursions, as this will be very helpful to us in planning your next trip.
