PERSONAL TRAVEL PLANNING

Some people love planning their holidays and weekends away. And some people absolutely hate it.

I love planning holidays, whether the trip is for friends, family or myself.

I’ve travelled across nearly 50 different countries and cities, from Colombia to Cairns and Ambleside to Auckland. I’ve done weekend breaks, one week holidays, two week holidays and a six month round the world trip that including solo travel,  several group tours and sleeping in a hammock, so whatever you’re looking for, I’ll probably be able to help.

In short, I would be delighted to help you plan your trip and be your personal travel planner!

Personal Travel Planning UK - Adventure Bagging

YOUR PERSONAL TRAVEL PLANNER

First off it is important to note that I am a travel planner, not a travel agent. I will only plan your trip – I won’t book any of the flights, tours or accommodation. The personal travel planning service I offer is designed to take away the time and stress of booking a trip yourself, and hopefully saving you some cash along the way.

All my recommendations, prices, travel itineraries and links will be sent to you via. email, and it is your responsibility to you to then go and book everything. Easy peasy 🙂

WHAT YOU GET

Some people like detailed travel itineraries, others simply want their travel and accommodation booked and their own time in between. I will work around your preferences.

Overall, you will receive the following:

  • Advice for the best flights

  • Recommendations for different accommodation types

  • Recommendations for the best local food, bars and restaurants

  • Activity recommendations

  • General trip consultation, for those who aren’t sure where and when to go

  • Detailed itinerary option - day by day itinerary for your specific dates

  • Basic Itinerary option - travel & accommodation for your specific dates

  • Recommendations for places to visit

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

You’re more than welcome to plan your own trip, but by using a personal travel planner like me, I’ll save you time, stress, and – hopefully – money. More pennies for those coffees and cocktails 🙂

I have vast experience of researching and booking flights, accommodation, car hire and other travel items for myself and others, and have learnt the best ways of getting deals online. Whether it’s an Airbnb, a promo code or waiting for a sale period, I’ll use all the travel hacks I know to keep your costs down.

WHAT I’LL NEED FROM YOU

Whilst I will do the majority of the leg work, I will need some information from you about your planned weekend / trip / holiday. This includes:

  • Approximate dates of when you want to travel
  • Number of people travelling
  • Where you want to go (if known)
  • Best departure points
  • How long your trip / holiday will be
  • Approximate budget
  • Foods you like
  • Activities you like
  • Other considerations (disabilities, air miles, allergens etc.)

The more information you provide, the more tailored and personalised I can make your trip 🙂

WHAT DOES IT COST?

Once you send through your initial enquiry, we’ll have a chat by email or phone so I can get a better feel for the kind of trip you are after. I’ll also let you know at that point how long the itinerary will take to pull together. Then, if you’re happy with everything, you’ll pay me one of the fees below, and then I’ll get planning your trip!
