FEES SCHEDULE

Custom Travel Planning Fees 

Planning fees apply for us to design your Custom Vacation Packages or Specialty Packages outlined below and must be paid before we begin to research your travel request and provide a quotation. Planning fees are non-refundable and non-transferable given the upfront work required, and will be charged regardless of whether a client books a trip with us. 

WHAT'S INCLUDED:

  • Initial consultation to discuss your travel needs.

  • Your preferred choice from two (2) quotation options (i.e. one destination and two revisions after the initial quote or two destinations and a revision of one after the initial quote).
