What is Premium travel?

 

Premium travel is all about exceptional experiences, a higher service level and excellent value. We use private or first-class local transport, have perfectly paced itineraries and stay in handpicked accommodation. You’ll pay more than any of our other styles of travel, but in exchange you’ll be treated to more included meals, our most experienced local leaders and have more immersive activities included in your trip.

What is the accommodation like?

Design driven accommodation

Handpicked

Specially selected for both quality and location and with an average rating of 4 stars, Premium accommodation brings you closer to each destination. While sometimes off-grid or remote, you can always count on comfort and personalised service.

Feature stays

Feature stays

All our Premium itineraries include a feature stay in a unique property chosen for historical significance, to showcase the local architectural style or to provide an unusual and exceptional local experience. Think a Ming-dynasty heritage house in China or a converted Madrasah in Uzbekistan.

Sustainable accommodation

Sustainable

As the sustainable choice for high-end adventures, we’re always working to make our already environmentally conscious trips even better. That’s why we feature accommodations that use renewable energy sources or that contribute back to the local community.

I'm travelling solo

Great! You're about to join a small group adventure, with an average of just 10 other travellers who want to explore the same destination as you. There’s no extra charge when you share accommodation with a member of the same gender, but if you’d like a little more privacy with a room all to yourself, there's a single supplement available on most Premium trips.

What else is included in the price?

In addition to accommodation, we also include all transport plus: 

Local leader

Local leader

The passion of our local leaders is what makes Intrepid’s trips so special. Premium trips are all led by Intrepid’s most experienced leaders, who will be available around the clock to make sure your trip is memorable and to share their invaluable local insights with you.

Premium knowledge

Premium knowledge

Premium itineraries are designed and curated by Intrepid’s in-destination experts. Our genuine small group size (an average of 10 travellers per group) means you can easily access your leader’s time and attention.

Exceptional experiences

Exceptional experiences 

Our Premium trips feature more included activities than any of our other styles, in addition to access to more local guides and experts. Experiences are less physically demanding than on most of our trips, ranging from cultural to culinary, wellness to wildlife, and more. 

Meals

More meals

Premium itineraries include more meals than other Intrepid styles, and all breakfasts are covered, so be sure to pack your appetite! From homecooked feasts and roadside markets to locally owned restaurants and multicourse gourmet dinners, Premium meals are so much more than just food – they’re an experience to remember. 

Premium service

Premium service

From the first step of your journey, our team on the ground are on hand to provide premium service to you. With included arrival transfers, luggage porterage and 24/7 in-destination support, the little details won’t get in the way of a big adventure.  

Tipping

Tipping

All incidental tipping (excluding for your local leader) is included in the price of your Premium trip, saving you the hassle so you can just enjoy every moment.

Why choose Intrepid Premium

Feature stay Premium

Exceptional accommodation

Handpicked for both quality and location, our design-driven, Premium accommodations ensure you’ll always be comfortable and well-looked after. With an average local accommodation rating of 4 stars, and a unique, feature stay on every itinerary, you’ll be completely immersed in the destination you’re visiting.

Group having fun on a trip

Exclusive experiences

These once-in-a-lifetime trips include totally unique experiences you won’t find on any other Intrepid itineraries. Whether you’re catching your lunch with a fisherman in Croatia, dining with a park ranger in Uganda or discovering Rome’s colosseum by night, these exclusive experiences allow you to deep dive into local culture in an exceptional and authentic way.  

Local leader

Unmatched knowledge

All our itineraries are designed by Intrepid’s travel experts, based in-destination. Premium trips are led by our most experienced local leaders, who have an in-depth knowledge and an extensive local network, to help make your trip unforgettable. With an average of 10 travellers per group, you won't need to compete for your leader’s time and attention.

Group watching the sunset

Personalised service

With an arrival transfer, daily breakfast, luggage porterage and incidental tipping (excluding leader tip) included in all our Premium itineraries, you can be sure you’re getting the highest level of service. You’ll also enjoy 24/7 support from your local leader and our team on the ground throughout the entire trip.    

How we get around

 

Our Premium trips mostly use private vehicles, though in some destinations we seek out unique modes of transport for speed and convenience. 

This could be a first-class train in Asia, a 4x4 in Africa or a short flight between more far-flung destinations.
