How to use this website
You can do a simple search from every page using the search bar - simply enter a destination (e.g. Victoria Falls), a region (e.g. Africa), or activity (e.g. hiking).
On the homepage the simple search has added features, such as filtering by price, length of travel, dates and destination. Enter your destination and/or set your filters, then click the magnifying glass to search.
For a more specific search, click on ‘More search options’ next to the main search field. Here you can search by additional filters of price range, duration, departure date, physical rating, culture shock, trip styles, trip themes and trip regions. To start afresh, click 'clear filters'.
Trips will be displayed by most relevant to your search query. From here you can read more about the trip, add the trip to your shortlist and book the trip.
Add trips to your Shortlist by selecting the ‘Add trip to my Shortlist’ button. This button is located on all trips and search results pages.
When you add trips to your Shortlist the 'Add to Shortlist' text will turn grey and the trips will appear in a Shortlist box on the right-hand side of the page.
You can have as many trips as you like in your Shortlist. You can delete items from your Shortlist by clicking the red circle with 'x'.
Once you have added trips to your Shortlist you can compare them. Click the ‘Compare trips’ link - this will take you to the Shortlist page showing the trips you have selected.
Select the trips you wish to compare by ticking and unticking the boxes – you will get a side-by-side comparison of your trips based on different trip elements (customer feedback, duration, countries visited, style, activities, etc.)
You can compare up to 4 trips.
1. Once you have found a trip you would like to book, click on the 'Book this trip' button.
E.g. From the trip search results page
E.g. From the late discounts page
2. Select a date in the list of departure dates that suits, or refine the list with the date range to find your preferred date.
4. This will bring you to our 5-step online booking form.
Step 1: Products Here you can add additional passengers to your booking and review the trip/s you have selected.
Step 2: Options Here you can add additional elements to your booking, including accommodation, airport transfers and extra sightseeing options.
Step 3: Passengers This is where you fill in all the details for each passenger. All details marked with an * are essential, and if you don’t have the other details at hand you can add them at a later stage.
Step 4: Payment A deposit at the time of booking is required, and the remaining balance is to be paid at 60 days prior to travel. From this page you can add booking notes (e.g. Dietary requirements>>) and select additional service requests. You can also download your travel documentation – your detailed trip notes, information on the countries visited, safety policy and responsible travel tips. These documents will also be emailed to you (>?).
Step 5: Confirmation This is the final step in your booking process and is where you download important documents like your travel vouchers, country information, etc. Please note that travel vouchers will only be available to download once a booking is confirmed and paid in full.
5. Once you have booked, you will receive an email with your booking confirmation number and more details about your booking.
