We’ve heard every excuse in the book – some valid, some not so valid. Here the ones we hear most – plus our answer to them….

Excuse #1: Travel is not possible because it’s too expensive and I can’t afford it

First off, we can understand that taking the financial risk of travelling can be a massive concern. Travel ain’t cheap, but it’s also not as expensive as you’d imagine. If you join organised tours all your accommodation, transport, experiences and some meals are catered for. But you also get so much more that you won’t be able to afford should you travel by yourself. We’re talking included local guides, local experiences, free travel support, group discount on most public rates (museums, excursions).

You get more than your money’s worth and you only need to budget for some meals, experiences and shopping you plan to do. What’s the snag? No snag. Just amazing travel at affordable prices. What’s more, we’re experts when it comes to budget travel. If you find your own way on free days, travel by public transport, stick to what the locals eat, you can make your money last pretty long.

Booking your travels in advance will also help you save lots of money as you can better anticipate the cost of travel and plan you saving plan. Lastly, did you know that you can book a tour with us by paying only 10% deposit? We’re just gonna leave it at that.

Excuse #2: I don’t have enough time because I only have a limited amount of leave

Once again, valid excuse. A lack of time is one of the biggest reasons why people end up postponing their dream holidays. We get so stuck in our everyday routine that we forget there should be more to life. There’s also the misconception that you need weeks and months to explore properly. We plan tours of different lengths to help people book a tour according to their time needs. Whether its regional or multi-country, you can explore from 6 days to 26. Fact is, the further you go, the longer it feels. Every day is so jam-packed with new experiences that you can’t believe how long a day in a new country can feel. Use the time you have and get out in the world. You can go on a full adventure in as little as one week.

Excuse #3: Planning a trip is too stressful

Especially when you’ve never been to a destination or you want to do a multi-country trip, planning it all it can be very stressful and time-consuming. Where on earth do you start? Thing is, you have the option to take the less stressful approach: Booking a done-for-you trip. Booking with us means you’re hiring a complete team of travel experts to help plan your trip! All our tours are tried and tested and designed by people who travel, experience it themselves and care about creating travel experiences that are nothing short of life-changing.

We take the stressful part of organising a trip off your hands and we leave the exploring to you. By choosing a destination and booking preferred itinerary you automatically secure hand-picked hotel accommodations, convenience transport, exciting experiences and some meals. You don’t have to worry about any of that. All you have to is researching a new destination and getting excited to explore it. Even if you don’t get to that, no problem – you have a tour leader on board to tell you more about a specific culture, history and orientate you as you travel. And what about the admin bits – booking travel insurance, visa, airport transfers, packing? We’ve got you. Our full team of travel experts and support is just a phone call, chat or email away. And you’re not just a number, you will deal with people who care.

Time is money. We get that. That’s why we do all the planning, so you don’t have to.
