As you prepare for the adventure of a lifetime in India & Sri Lanka, we hope our answers to these frequently asked questions will help you on your way. If there’s anything else you need, just give us a call or drop us a mail.
How Does planning work ?
It all starts with a conversation. We love to get to know our clients – and we need to know you so we can plan a holiday that’s perfect for you! Initially we will ask some questions, both practical and out-of-the box. Then, drawing upon your answers and our inside knowledge of India & Sri Lanka, we’ll create the itinerary options, and present them to you in digital form (or a PDF). From there, we’ll adjust, refine and add in even more layers and details to create the ultimate travel schedule tailored just for you.
Can I change itinerary during booking ?
Absolutely. We encourage you to be open about everything in the proposal – what you love and what you’re not sure about. The beauty of our service is that we’ll refine and tweak it until you’re 100% happy and ready to finalise your booking.
How do I book ?
We specialise in personally tailored tours and there’s no better way to get to know your individual preferences than discussing the various options with you:
Please call us on +91 9958444779
Or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
We will discuss the options and then send you a proposal / cost. This can be tweaked and restructured as required until we have created your final itinerary. When you’re ready to confirm the arrangements, we will need a deposit payment to secure your booking.
Do I have to pay more if there is movement in currency ?
When you book your holiday with us, you’ll secure the price of your holiday at that time, even if there are currency fluctuations in the months leading up to your trip.
Do I Need Travel Insurance ?
We view it as imperative and strongly recommend that guests take out comprehensive travel insurance: covering for personal effects, personal accident, medical and emergency travel expenses, cancellation and curtailment.
What Happens when I arrive ?
You will be met on arrival at the airport by our professional team carrying a placard bearing your name.
You will be chaperoned by a member of the team whenever you make an internal connection by air or rail and again on your final departure.
Is India & Sri lanka suitable for Kids ?
India & Sri Lanka is a fantastic destination for children – nowhere else in the world will open their eyes to such incredible culture, natural beauty and extraordinary wilderness and wildlife.
Can I specify Dietary requirements & Restrictions ?
Generally speaking, yes – most properties and restaurants throughout India & Sri Lanka are able to cater for dietary restrictions, food allergies and religious restrictions. We record all of your dietary requirements in your booking form and share this with every property and partner on the ground to ensure you’re well catered for.
Do I Need Vaccination ?
We advise you to consult your personal doctor or a travel clinic, as to what vaccinations are necessary before travelling to the various areas in India & Sri Lanka – for the most up-to-date recommendations.
Do I need to bring personal medicines ?
Although most hotels are equipped with a First Aid Kit and have medical staff on call, we suggest that you bring basic personal articles, such as: plasters, travel sickness tablets, antiseptic cream, antihistamine cream, pain-relieving tablets, indigestion tablets, eye drops, medication for upset stomachs, sunscreen and after-sun moisturiser.
We remind travellers who have any allergies such as insect stings, or any pre-existing conditions requiring medication, to pack the relevant medication.
Do I need to be fit ?
To have the best possible experience in India & Sri Lanka, you should be in reasonably good health and able to walk short distances without assistance. Early on in the planning process we will ask you about your level of fitness, your interests and how adventurous and strenuous you want your holiday to be – this way we can match you up with the perfect experiences. But don’t worry, there are plenty of opportunities for light physical activity if you want to take things easy – and you can even go on safari if you’re in a wheelchair.
What can I expect
India & Sri Lanka are so incredibly vast and diverse that it is impossible to capture it in a single itinerary. The cities are cosmopolitan and much like most major metropolises . But it is the vast tracks of forests and plentiful wild animals that set India & Sri Lanka apart from anywhere else in the world. Everywhere you go, you can expect the same warm welcome and an array of colourful cultures. When you’ve experienced it once, we have no doubt you’ll be back.
