Frequently Asked Questions

Is working with The Travel Guru more expensive?

Most travelers don't realize that The Travel Guru's prices for vacation trips and group tours are just as good as booking directly. Plus, The Travel Guru has special perks with many airlines, hotels and cruise lines so that you can get even more out of your trip. If you're looking for a customized journey, I'll work with you to create an itinerary that fits your budget and interests. Keep in mind that prices might vary depending on the time of year, availability, and location. But don't worry - I will handle all the details, so you can relax and enjoy your trip without any stress.

What does the planning fee include?

The fee associated with each service is a travel planning fee. This is my fee to coordinate, plan, research all of your desired activities and services. The planning fee is a fixed rate. Whether you have 1 person traveling or 10 the fee does not change.

Is it worth the investment?

If you're someone who instantly gets overwhelmed at the thought of planning a vacation - this service is 100% for you! My services & itineraries are specifically for those who want to travel but do not necessarily want to do the planning and research. With The Travel Guru will ensure that you have a stress free trip. I will ensure that no time is wasted. The only thing you need to do is look at your daily itinerary to check your plans for the day!

When should I start planning my trip?

If you're looking to plan a great trip, I recommend giving yourself at least two months to make sure everything is organized and ready to go. However, if you want to make sure you get the best prices and options, it's always a good idea to start planning six to eight months ahead. And for those once-in-a-lifetime adventures, like an African safari, I'd suggest starting to plan nine to twelve months in advance. That way you can relax and enjoy the anticipation of your amazing trip!

When will I get my itinerary?

Your trip planning timeframe will depend on the complexities of your trip- but, I've got some good news for you! My services come with a special advantage - As a proud Travel Edge Network Partner, I have one of the best "little black books" in the industry. I've got local partners in over 150 countries worldwide, so I can help you plan your dream trip. Just keep in mind that timelines may vary depending on time zones and local holidays. I always aim to provide you with an initial proposal within 3-5 days of our first consultation, but if you have a tight schedule, just let me know and I'll do my best to meet your requirements.
