I don't want to order online. Can we talk and you send me a custom made offer?
Of course I can. Just send me a message about your expectations and I will be happy to create a journey especially for you.
Why are the prices different between the Double and Solo options?
It's always more cost-efficient to travel in groups. A hotel room will cost the same, whether one or two people are staying in it, so the price for our trips is lower if you've got a travel companion.
How does payment work? And are there any fees?
All payment for your trip takes place up front when you check out. Upon completion of the survey, you will be directed to the payment page where you will enter your credit card information. Once you complete the order, your card will immediately be charged for the full amount of the trip. Even if your trip is several months away, for credit card security, we cannot store your payment information to charge you later!
There are no additional fees or taxes. If you select a trip for two people at $1,000 per person, you will pay exactly $2,000 - not a cent more. Once we receive your order and payment, we then build a trip for you with the goal of utilizing your budget to the fullest.
How do we make money, you may ask? We take a small service fee off the top of your budget, but rest assured that the vast majority of your budget goes towards your trip.
Can my travel partner(s) and I pay separately?
Unfortunately, our website does not permit separate payments for one order, so we'll need to receive only one payment per trip.
Can I bring my kids?
Yes! We love planning trips for families. If your children have any specific interests please be sure to mention them when you're filling out the survey. We'll make sure to include plenty of family-friendly and age-appropriate recommendations so everyone will have a great time. We may also reach out to you directly when planning your trip to gather some additional information.
What about babies?
If your baby is less than 2 years old, you're in luck: they travel free! So no need to factor them in to the number of travelers you select. Please do still provide their name and birthday, however.
And as far as their accommodations are concerned, just let us what you would prefer. We can be flexible! If you want a crib, an extra bed, or any other special amenities, just be sure to specify that on your survey and we'll work within your budget to make it happen.
Do you work with smoker-friendly hotels?
All of our hotel partners are non-smoking properties.
Are there vegan/vegetarian-friendly hotels?
Yes. If you prefer a special kind of diet please give me a short notice in the booking form.
Can I bring my dog with me?
It depends on the accommodation and form of transportation. If you are going to fly within Europe to reach your destination, pets are not allowed in most to the air planes. Traveling by car instead gives us some opportunities to manage a holiday together with your dog. Please contact us before booking a holiday if you plan to bring your pet.
What's the difference between budget options?
The primary factors to consider when choosing your budget are your travel dates and categories of the accommodation. If you're thinking of traveling during a major holiday weekend or July/August, we strongly recommend selecting a higher budget ($1000plus/person). It's simply more expensive to travel on these dates! The higher your budget, the more options we have in booking your trip.
Does my budget include food + activities?
If you booked a "Gourmet" stay then yes, you will find meals included in the price. In all other cases, no. Your budget covers only your travel and accommodation. We do not book any activities on your behalf unless its written in the offer, nor do we pay for any of your meals. We will recommend activities and restaurants, but do not cover those expenses in your budget.
What's the latest I can sign up?
The earlier you book your trip, the better. If we have more time to plan your trip, we can get better deals for you. That said, if you're interested in a last minute getaway - you can book a trip up to three weeks before departure. We'll probably reach out to you directly to coordinate any last-minute travel details
Do you offer travel insurance?
Yes. We partner with Allianz to offer travel insurance for your trip. Rates vary depending on the number of travelers, the total cost of the trip, and the departure location, so we can send you a quote once you've signed up and you can decide later if you would like to purchase a policy.
