Tailor-Made is for anyone that wants to bring any level of custom to their adventure for two or more – but find out more about our popular types of trip below.
Frequently Asked Questions
Not at all. Tailor-Made means you can choose to make a fully custom itinerary with the assistance of our expert specialist consultants or choose one of our 1,000+ existing itineraries to modify to suit your group’s specific needs. This can include upgrading the hotels, slowing down or speeding up the pace or adding a focus like food or physical activity.
This will depend on the destination, the standard of accommodation, the amount of included activities, the itinerary and how many passengers will be traveling with you. Generally, if you were to run a private group trip of 6 or more, the price becomes comparable to our publicly available group trips.
Our specialist consultants will be able to provide you with an estimated time frame once we've received the details of the kind of Tailor-Made Experience you are looking to create.
This will depend on your requests, but generally a pricing proposal for a Tailor-Made experience includes a custom itinerary from one of our expert specialist consultants featuring a local leader, transport, accommodation, some meals and some activities and excursions.
The pricing proposal for Tailor-Made Experiences does not include the cost of:
- International Flights: We can provide separate pricing for international airfares if departing from the UK or Australia.
- Travel Insurance: We can advise on where to purchase travel insurance. Note if you’re departing from Australia, we can also assist with arranging your travel insurance.
We can create a Tailor-Made experience for groups of four or more. Depending on the request, prices become comparable to our public small group adventures with 6 or more. Tailor-Made is also an option with our Adventure Cruising and Polar experiences, but minimum numbers are variable. Please get in touch with a Tailor-Made specialist consultant for more information.
We can include the cost of a free of charge (FOC) spot with any pricing proposal. The cost of this spot will then be averaged out among the paying passengers. Please advise us when requesting a pricing proposal whether you’ll need any FOC spots for your trip.
Everyone should feel comfortable when they travel with Intrepid and we know that many of our travellers are part of the LGBTQI community, so we are here to make your trip easy and relaxed. Your specialist consultant is there to listen and work though any concerns, sharing their knowledge of local laws and customs as some destinations we visit have laws that discriminate against LGBTQI people.
Your safety is our top priority, no matter what type of trip you’re on. We have extensive and recently updated Health & Safety Guidelines to ensure you are looked after. Learn more about our safe travels policies here.
With Tailor-Made we’re here to help every step of the way, from the specialist consultant who helps you design your itinerary and answers any questions you have, to the local leaders and guides in your chosen destination and the on-ground operations teams there with support until the end of your trip.
1. Get to know your Tailor-Made specialist consultant
When you call, email or fill out a form online, you’ll be put in touch with a specialist that knows your destination well or is an expert in your area of interest. They’ll be able to guide you through any tricky logistics, offer advice, and arrange as many activities as you like.
2. Get the itinerary priced
After we’ve put together an itinerary based on your group’s interests, we’ll get a quote from our local teams on the ground in our Destination Management Company (DMC) offices worldwide.
3. Receive your pricing proposal
As soon as we receive costs from our local team, we will send through a detailed day-by-day itinerary with costing for your group size. From here you can request changes or move forward with paying a deposit to request your tour services.
4. Lock it in
Once you are happy with the itinerary and ready to go ahead, we’ll need to collect deposits per person along with the full names of the group. Once we have everyone’s deposits on file, our local teams will begin confirming the elements of your trip. This can take 5-7 business days. Once the trip is confirmed, we will send you a confirmation pack, which means that services and prices are locked in.
