11 reasons to book with us

#1

OUR BOOKINGS ARE REFUNDABLE & FLEXIBLE

With our groundbreaking State of Flex cancellation terms, we always look to secure the most flexible terms available. Wherever possible, this will include 100% refunds should any Covid complications arise between booking and travel. What’s more, State of Flex allows you to postpone and move your dates free of charge, giving you greater control over your booking – and more reason to feel reassured in a time of uncertainty.

WE BELIEVE THAT IDEAS ARE PRICELESS

Inspiration is priceless. It’s in our DNA, and that’s exactly why we’ll never charge you for a quotation. It’s also why our quotations are no-obligation. Before we charge you, we want to show you what we can do. We’re confident you’ll love your itinerary. And that, for us, is enough.

WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF INSPIRATION

As travelers, we’ve spent our lives getting deeper and closer to the world. But rather than hoarding our treasures, we believe that it’s our job to share our curiosity and our discoveries with you, and to do this in ways that changes the way you travel. This isn’t about box-ticking or completionism. No. We also want to introduce you to new and startling ways to see the world.

#4

WE’LL SAVE YOU TIME, STRESS & ENERGY

Our travelers lead busy lives. And as the world expands and becomes ever more complex, it can be difficult to find the proper time to plan the escape you deserve; overwhelmed by options, fretting about FOMO. “Have we made the right decision – is this the right time and place?” But it’s our job to cut through that noise – to do the digging, the heavy lifting, the tailoring and precision engineering, all on your behalf.

#5

WE OFFER CERTAINTY IN AN UNCERTAIN WORLD

Modern travel is no easy thing to pull off. Rules, restrictions, protocols, and now vaccinations. But we have decades of experience coping with the challenges that the world has faced, and this is exactly the value of having a personal travel advisor to help you navigate the world.

 

#6

WE’RE TAILOR-MADE

Most travel companies sell “packages” and fixed experiences. But we’re different. While our website is filled with ideas and inspiration, these are only frameworks and suggestions. They exist to provide the spark. But they’re not the fireworks themselves. We build all our trips from the ground up – just like the tailor who fits your suit and the chef who prepares your meals – with thoughtfulness, care, and attention to detail. Nothing is too little, and nothing is ever too much.

#7

WE ARE EXPERTS

We’re experts because we’re travelers. Over the years, we’ve brought together a team of impassioned globe-trotters and destination obsessives and an unbeatable network of local partners; and these are the people who’ll plan your trip, from the smallest details to the most sublime and remarkable of crescendos.

#8

WE’LL FORGE A RELATIONSHIP

One of the best things about our work is that we get to build life-long relationships with our travelers. We’re not just here to sell you a trip and disappear. Like the other trusted specialists in your life (your financial advisor, your lawyer, your nutritionist), we’re in this for the long haul. And this isn’t limited to just booking your trip. After all, travel doesn’t begin and end just while you’re away.

 

#9

WE’RE THE AUTHORITY ON TRAVEL

We’re proud and passionate believers in what we do. And it’s extremely humbling to see that others share that point of view. Over the years, we’ve become recognized globally as one of the leading authorities on luxury and experiential travel, receiving plaudits and applause from global media as well as from thousands of our happy travelers. The trips are what count, but it’s truly inspiring to hear what others are saying and their unflagging belief in what we do.

#10

WE TAKE SUSTAINABILITY SERIOUSLY

Even despite the difficult times we’re living through, it’s never been more important to look after the world we share. From offsetting our own trips to tree-planting projects and supporting sustainable properties and hotels, we’re working hard to create a better world.

WE’VE BEEN DOING THIS FOR A LONG TIME

Since 2005, we’ve organized thousands of trips for our dedicated community of travelers. Many of these we’ve seen grow up, from honeymoons and anniversaries to birthdays and milestones. We’ve created – and are creating still – a community of likeminded people who want to see and experience the world differently. They’ve been on journeys with us. And we’re on a lifelong journey with them.
