Travel starts long before you leave home regardless if it is for a holiday with your loved ones, a business trip, ticking off on your bucket list item to another destination. Researching and booking all your arrangements can be time consuming and overwhelming if you don’t know where or what to look for. This is where I come in, your personal travel manager.
What is a Travel Management Fee?
A travel management fee covers the ongoing management and supervision of your entire travel arrangements, from consultation, booking progression, collation and delivery of travel documents. The fee is commensurate with my time, expertise, knowledge, and personalised professional service.
This is payable at the time of your initial consultation.
If you decide not to proceed with your booking and/or your travel arrangements are cancelled for any reason, this payment/fee is non-refundable.
One revision to the itinerary is included with the initial management fee. Changes beyond this will inclur additional charges with 1 hour minimum charge and then in 30 minute increments. Estimate of time will be provided before any changes are made.
