Frequently Asked Questions

- Who is a tailormade holiday suitable for?

Tailor made holidays are perfect for all ages, all styles of travel and for any size of group – couples, family celebrations, groups of friends, honeymoons, school expeditions, special interest groups, charities, or simply travellers looking for that exceptional experience.

- Is there a minimum or maximum group size?

There is no minimum (or maximum) size of group for a tailor made itinerary – we can cater for single travellers, to groups of 22 chartering a private overland truck, and to groups of 60 or more people.

- What about budget?

We work to your requirements. We are happy to arrange tailor made trips to suit most budgets – from cost-effective itineraries to more luxurious experiences. If you're not sure how much you should budget for a particular destination or holiday, just ask - we are happy to give you guidance where required.

- What about financial security?

We are fully bonded with ATOL (CAA Air Travel Organisers Licence) and ABTOT (Association of Bonded Travel Organisers Trust Ltd) so any flights and land arrangements booked through us are financially secure. This means that you can book your adventure holiday with confidence, knowing that your money is protected in the event of airline or operator failure.

- Am I limited with destinations?

With over 70 countries in our line-up, there’s a lot to choose from. You can also combine certain destinations easily to create a multi-country itinerary. Our Sample Itineraries will give you an idea of what you can do in just some of the countries we visit.

- What about the type of accommodation?

You choose the style to suit your needs. We can match the style of accommodation to your budget or requirements. Why not mix it up a little and combine homestays and guesthouses with a luxury beach or city hotel at the end.

- How much deposit do we need to pay?

The deposit amount is 30% of the tour price and the full payment for the tour is payable 60 days before departure.

 - Am I confined to a specific departure date?

Nope. You choose your own departure dates and length of holiday. Our consultants will also be able to advise the best season for your destination of choice.

- What about tour leaders and local guides?

We can arrange for an experienced English-speaking tour leader to accompany you throughout, or just use the services of English-speaking local guides at specific sites and destinations. This can all be arranged as part of the tailor made package.

- What exactly is a Tailor Made Holiday?

It's pretty similar to tailor-making a suit. Tailor making a trip simply means creating a unique holiday that 'fits' you - your desires, your budget, your choice of accommodation, your choice of activities etc. It's the perfect solution for a truly unique holiday. And it's easier and more cost effective than you might think. Just advise us where and when you want to go, the style of accommodation you'd prefer, any special requirements, and an approximate budget, and we will do the rest!

- What if anything goes wrong whilst I am travelling?

We will provide you with a comprehensive itinerary, listing accommodation, contact numbers and details of our local agents and offices. We will also ensure that your final documents contain our 24hr contact number in the unlikely event of an emergency.

 - What kind of transport do you use?

Depending on the itinerary, this may include a private bus or overland vehicle, public buses, minibuses, 4x4s, bicycles, planes, boats or trains! Talk to us about the best options for your destination and needs.

 - How will I know what is included? What if I have a specific activity I want to include?

We will list all of the inclusions that make up your tailor made package at the quoted price, so it is clear from the start what is and isn't included. Exactly what is included on your trip is up to you, and our team will work with you to create the perfect bespoke trip. If you have a particular activity in mind, a special event to attend, or a specific destination to explore, we can tailor the itinerary around these.

- Do you book flights?

Yes. We are able to quote for both land-only and flight-inclusive trips. As your committed one-stop adventure travel specialist, let us do the groundwork for you when deciding on international flights. After all, we are taking the headache out of organising your ground arrangements so it makes sense that we do the same for your flights!

- What about extras such as insurance, airport transfers etc?

We can offer you the complete package including transfers, stopover arrangements and travel insurance. Please discuss your requirements with us and let us take the hassle out of your travel arrangements.
