"Collective Travel: A type of travel experience where individuals or groups come together and embark on a journey as a cohesive unit.”
This typically involves a shared itinerary, transportation, activities, and a sense of community and camaraderie among the travelers. Collective travel encourages people to connect, interact, and create meaningful connections. Collective travel can encompass various forms, such as group destination exploration opportunities, volunteer trips, adventure expeditions, or organized retreats, all of which offer travelers the opportunity to explore, learn, and grow together while sharing unique experiences and memories, fostering connections and enriching the journey.
Collective travel allows people to connect with others who share similar interests and passions. It fosters social interactions, encourages networking, and promotes the formation of new friendships and relationships.
Group travel allows individuals to share unique experiences and create lasting memories together. Exploring new destinations, engaging in activities, and facing challenges as a collective strengthens the sense of camaraderie and shared accomplishment
Being part of a collective can provide access to special activities, experiences, or destinations that may not be available or easily accessible for individual travelers. Group travel packages often include unique opportunities, guided tours, or behind-the-scenes access.
Collective travel often offers savings compared to traveling individually. Group discounts, and shared transportation expenses help reduce costs, making travel more affordable. Sharing resources among multiple travelers can help minimize carbon footprints and promote sustainable practices.
Traveling as part of a collective provides a sense of safety and security. The presence of fellow travelers offers support and assistance in unfamiliar environments, mitigates risks, and ensures a more comfortable and enjoyable travel experience.
Group travel usually includes a carefully planned itinerary, considering participants' preferences and interests. This saves individuals the effort of researching and organizing logistics, allowing them to focus on enjoying the journey

Yes, we are almost always able to accommodate families and children (unless there is an age restriction or safety concern). However, you will need to be responsible for any additional costs, or additional accommodations, above your own personal.
We hold deposits in an escrow account until the first set of payments to suppliers/vendors are due (usually about 8-10 weeks before travel). Refunds are not refundable, however we make all efforts to refund any deposit unless clearly stated by a supplier/vendor in advance of accepting funds if and only if the trip is canceled because of an insufficient number of bookings to host the trip.
Typically, gratuities are not included (but can be depending on the trip). Any additional add-ons for things like spa treatments, non-hosted excursions, and accommodation upgrades are each traveler's individual responsibility. We will clearly outline what is included for each unique experience.
Each of your individual guests, including you, will need to purchase a travel insurance policy, one that includes medical coverage. We can facilitate this process by suggesting several industry partners. We do require all travelers have coverage, before traveling. We strongly suggest having a C-FAR 'cancel for any reason' policy.
