TRANSPORTATION

Adventures Abroad Custom Group Travel department arranges only the best motor coaches, airlines, boats, trains and other means of transport. We simply refuse to skimp on safety and comfort.

ACCOMMODATION

All our hotels have been inspected by members of the Adventures Abroad team and provide excellent value for money. Although some destinations in the world offer different standards and smaller rooms than North Americans may have come to expect, we ensure the properties we use have private washrooms (unless otherwise specified) comfortable sleeping arrangements and up-to-date safety features.

MEALS

Sampling different cuisines is an integral part of travel. We ensure our group tours include local specialities and that participants are provided with nutritious meal options and ample portions.

In almost all instances, we can cater to group participants with special meal requirements. Be it for allergies, religious reasons or simply personal preferences, we do our best to accommodate any requests of this type. It is best to contact our sales department to discuss the specifics of your requirements and concerns.

BOOKING

Bookings must be made directly with Adventures Abroad. We have offices in the US, Canada. You can book a tour or request a quote by contacting our sales department by phone, fax or e-mail. Additional information about Adventures Abroad and our tours can be found online.

PAYMENT

Though there are no set deadlines as regards payment of deposit, we urge our travel agent partners to do so as soon as possible, so as to ensure adequate airline seats, hotel space and restaurants are available. For example, a group travelling in May would be advised to submit a deposit no later than October, make a second payment by January and a final instalment at least 60 days before departure. We suggest making all payments by cheque, though in certain cases, we will accept initial deposits by Visa, MasterCard and American Express. In the UK, we also accept debit cards (e.g. Switch).

CUSTOMIZING ITINERARY

Everything we do at Adventures Abroad Custom Department is customized, utilizing the first-hand experience of our extensively traveled staff - all of whom have guided groups around the world - we offer your clients the highly skilled first-hand experience of our staff throughout the itinerary design process. This enables you to ensure travellers get pertinent and informed feedback to their requests, and can build their itineraries with someone who truly knows the region.

Each group and individual will normally have a budget in mind. We design each group's itinerary around the indicated levels of service requested (3 star, 4 star or 5 star, hiking and camping etc.) Our custom itineraries span the range of expense, depending entirely on the levels of service requested by each individual, family or group. However, in most cases the custom itineraries are very budget-flexible, as we can include or omit services and select or alter hotels until you and your clients are satisfied.

For more information, simply give call us. In most instances, our expert, well-travelled staff members are able to provide first-hand information of the tour in question; many of our staff have led or participated on our tours and are more than happy to share their experiences.

ITINERARY TYPES

We offer an extraordinary variety of customized itineraries, from Australia to Zimbabwe and all points in-between. If your clients can imagine it, we can design it. We handcraft itineraries for family groups or individuals, for special interest groups such as schools, universities, museums, non-profit organizations, religious organizations and spiritual organizations, photography groups, cooking and wine groups, and sports groups. We will work closely with you to design any style of tour from Art Tours in Italy to Trekking in the Himalayas.
