The best way to truly understand you, your lifestyle, interests, and travel style is through a phone call. We’ll get to know and understand each other, as well as determine if what Avantia Luxe provides is what you need. We’re hoping it will be.
Location and Date
Our favorite part – deciding on a location. Location can sometimes help narrow down the travel window, depending on ideal times to visit your intended destination. No one wants to go to Russia in January! Or, if you have particular dates in mind that you would like to travel, we love consulting on ideal places for that time of year. We’ll ensure you are avoiding typhoon season in Japan, rainy season in Bali, blistering season in the Outback, or any other season that could negatively impact your trip! If, after this conversation, you would like to move forward with our assistance, we’ll secure the partnership with a nonrefundable $500 deposit.
Now onto some concrete details such as flights, number of days in each locations, transfers between locations, special events in the area during your travel, and various other considerations. Once we are in agreement on these big picture items, we move onto . . .
Okay, maybe this is our favorite part – filling in the days. Your collaboration is essential, as we want this trip to be tailor made just for you! We’ll talk through various activities and experiences and make sure we get the right combination for you, being careful to leave time for you to explore on your own. The last thing we want is for you to be over-toured!
Once we have your approval to secure the itinerary, we will request a second confirmation deposit which will total 30-50% of the itinerary cost (cost is dependent on terms of the various suppliers we use around the world). We will continue to work together to get your itinerary just right, and if you change your mind about some of the things we have chosen, no problem! One day, paragliding might sound fun but we understand that the spa may start calling your name instead. We will continue to finesse the schedule as we go.
A minimum of one week prior to your departure, we’ll send out your Escape Plan, which includes everything you need to know for your adventure. Of course, there will be information such as your hotel and flight arrangements but also the details of your daily plans such as when your guides will pick you up to reconfirming dinner reservations to all necessary phone numbers that you’ll need while traveling. We’re happy to review this with you over the phone but we do recommend a detailed review of the Escape Plan on your own prior to travel to avoid any confusion while on your trip.
Time for you to enjoy! We hope you will be having the time of your life but we are only a phone call away should anything come up. We will also provide you with phone numbers for local assistance.
Our goal is to build a solid partnership with you so that every time we work together, your trip is THAT much better and more personalized. We’d love to get your feedback after you’ve had the time to settle in at home.
