We understand that before you book your trip you’ll want to research various companies, check out their destinations, itineraries and prices, look at photos and videos, and read reviews from people who have previously travelled with them. It can take weeks of research before you reach a decision!
To assist you with your planning and decision making we’ve put together a list of ‘10 Reasons Why You Should Travel With Wayfairer’.
1. The Wayfairer Way
We aim to promote and encourage responsible and sustainable travel. We design tailor made luxury holidays that bring benefits to communities and conservation in the destinations we love (Kenya, Tanzania, Zanzibar, Rwanda, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar).
Our passion for travel in these countries inspires us to create unique travel experiences for our clients that showcase the difference of the Wayfairer way.
2. Our Fair Travel Specialists
Our Fair Travel Specialists have a genuine passion for responsible travel in Africa and Asia.
From the moment you make your initial enquiry with us we’ll ensure that you have one point of contact throughout the planning, booking and pre-departure stages. Our Wayfairer Fair Travel Specialists have extensive knowledge of either Africa or Asia and first-hand experience of the accommodation choices. They’ll help you design your perfect holiday ensuring that you make the most out of your time and budget, and they’ll provide travel support prior to your departure and during your time abroad.
3. Fantastic Local Guides
Wayfairer guides come from within the local communities where we work and we pay fair salaries which far exceed government regulations. In line with our transparent pricing policy we’ll let you know your driver/guide’s daily salary on your quote. If you wish to tip your local staff you’re very welcome to, however this should be done from the heart rather than with a feeling that it is compulsory.
Our English speaking local guides are extremely passionate about showing you the region where they live; they bring the places in your itinerary to life and make the world of difference to your holiday.
4. Tailor made Holidays
All our holidays are tailor made and are designed around you. This means that you can travel on dates that are convenient for you, you can explore sights that interest you at your own pace and you can choose accommodation to suit you and your budget. The itineraries shown on our website act as a suggestion only and can be tailored to suit you.
One of the benefits of booking a Wayfairer holiday rather than planning your own trip is that you don’t need to worry about the logistics, and instead you can focus all your energy on having the experience of a lifetime.
5. A Choice of Holiday Types
We appreciate that not everyone wants to experience the same style of holiday which is why we offer a range of different options to choose from. Whether you’re interested in immersing yourself in local cultures, challenging yourself on a trek or seeing the Big 5 on an East African safari – we can design a holiday based around your individual interests. And, we have a range of holiday styles too – from action-packed adventures, to romantic honeymoons and unforgettable family holidays.
6. Unlimited Changes
We offer tailor-made itineraries because we want your holiday to be just the way you like it. We’ll take the time to talk to you about what you want and we’ll create a bespoke itinerary drawing upon our own personal experiences. We hope that you’ll be happy with your itinerary, however if something is not quite right or you want to talk to us about another option – an extra relaxation day here or an upgrade choice there – just let us know and we’ll be more than happy to make adjustments.
7. Fair Pricing
We aim to be as transparent as possible and will even give you a breakdown of your trip costs on request. What’s included and what’s excluded is clearly marked on your tailor-made holiday itinerary, but if you’re not sure about something then be sure to get in touch. Unlike almost all other companies, at Wayfairer we don’t charge any booking surcharges or credit card fees. Most companies will add 2.5% credit card charges on top of the holiday cost which would equate to an extra £125 on a £5,000 holiday.
8. Lifetime Deposits
We appreciate that sometimes you may need to postpone a holiday if you have an emergency or a sudden change in circumstances. In the event that you need to postpone your trip we will always try to keep your deposit with us until you’re ready to complete your booking – with no additional fees and no holding charges. If there are no charges from hotels or suppliers, there will be no charges from us.
9. ATOL Financial Protection
Our partnership with Travel Pack gives all our clients full ATOL protection on their flights inclusive holidays. ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is backed by the UK Government and it protects you when you book a holiday with a UK travel company. It ensures you do not lose money or become stranded abroad if your travel company collapses.
10. Amazing Testimonials
We believe that our Africa and Asia holidays offer something a bit different, but don’t just take our word for it. Here’s some amazing feedback which we’ve received from our clients within the past 12 months:
