Have you ever heard of the phrase ‘tailor-made travel’? If you haven’t, then it’s about time you did, and it’s about time you experienced it too. Basically, tailor-made travel is just as it sounds; it is where a unique itinerary has been created for you personally to suit your style, taste, and budget. You are forgiven for thinking that this is a costly way to travel, it certainly sounds it, but that’s the point, it’s designed just for you, so it doesn’t need to be expensive at all, it can be precisely what you want it to be.
Tailor making a trip gives you the choice and flexibility to stay in the places or the places that you want, for the money that you can afford. If that’s not enough to convince you that this is the way forward, then here are a few more reasons why you should go tailor-made:
You Get The Best Advice
There are tonnes of tailor-made travel consultants out there now, and one prerequisite of the job is to be a self-confessed travel addict. They love talking about travel, and they have a tonne of experience and a load of stories about where they have traveled to, little gems they found, restaurants you must visit and how to get the best deals. They know what they’re talking about and no matter where you want to go, someone will be able to help you with it, from where to stay in France to how to plan your tailor-made trip to the must-visit destinations in South America – they know it all.
You Benefit From Exclusivity
A tailor-made trip is personally created to cater to your needs, so no two trips are the same. Every aspect of the journey is to your liking and only includes the places that you want to see. A consultant will be able to come up with new ideas as well as old favorites; they will be able to recommend unique places to stay, award-winning restaurants, and secret viewpoints.
A tailor-made travel consultant or company will take care of every detail no matter how big or small, from booking all of the hotels, transfers, excursions, regional flights, and international flights if you want them to. This will save you hours of searching online, and you’ll know all the costs beforehand which will ultimately save you money! If you want to plan a special surprise, then they can help you do that too.
You Have Flexibility
When you are looking for a tour, sometimes they look great, but the dates don’t seem to work for you. Or perhaps there’s one destination missing or somewhere you really don’t want to go, or you’ve already been. With a tailor-made tour you can be completely flexible so that you can start on any day or date you want to and go wherever you want to, make the trips you want to from active, culinary, arts, history, and beach escapes, have a mix or stick to one type of thing, whatever you want, you can have it.

During her time in university as a research assistant for a sociology professor, she realized she can’t fully understand cultures from a safe distance. She quit her job to become a full-time “voluntourist,” which brings her to places where she can immerse in local communities and support their causes. On top of writing, one of Bonnie’s priorities is offering women advice on how to stay safe while solo backpacking.
