Travelling doesn’t mean following a conga line of tour buses. At YourTrip, each of our itineraries are a starting point to excite your imagination. Once you’ve got an idea on what you want to do, we work our magic to deliver an amazing experience, just for you. Everyone wants something different out of their holiday, so we plan everyone’s trips differently. In this article we explain why we think a tailored itinerary is so important and how we create these daily for you.
Say Goodbye to Generic Holidays
More people are travelling than ever before. In 2017 alone, over 1.3billion people travelled, the highest growth in travelers in seven years according to the World Tourism Organisation. As more people travel the need for a tailored itinerary becomes more and more important. Can you imagine the size of the buses required to move everyone around if everyone kept on the generic bandwagon? Fortunately, there are boutique operators (like us!) who are building unique and tailored holidays for their clients.
People are wanting to tailor their holidays around them instead of the traditional model of picking a tour from a catalogue and going with the flow. There are just too many people on generic tours to make it worthwhile these days. Gone are the days of everyone following everyone on a conga line of tour buses. Who wants an off the shelf generic holiday that has been created to try and please as many people as possible, but skips much of the unique charm of a destination? The days of generic holiday planning are hopefully numbered, but what’s replacing them?
Planning – Ain’t nobody got time for that!
There is a lot of work involved in planning out a tailored itinerary for our guests. It’s definitely not a click a button and hey presto your holiday is ready. As blogger Nomadic Matt outlines after quitting his job to travel the world, there are up to 17 (so called easy) steps to plan a holiday. Do you have time for all of those? Some people (like us) enjoy planning out every step in detail. We research the destination to learn when’s best to go and what’s best to eat. Finding the best place for you to stay is important so we use our extensive travel experiences to plan your ultimate journey. We find that a lot of people don’t have the time for all this research, or can get stressed out choosing between all the options available.
Knowing your plan
We’d love to say we’re genius mind readers who know exactly what everyone wants. Alas, we haven’t evolved that far (yet). Instead we like to have a chat with you and ask some questions to know where your dream holiday is headed. Where do you want to go? What kind of hotels do you like to stay in? Are you a night owl or an early bird catching worms? What interests you? What can’t you stand doing? Everyone’s travel journey is different, so we take time to understand your past travel journey and where you’d like to take it next.
Building that ultimate itinerary
We take care of the research, planning, scheduling and anything else you’re likely to need out of your hands. Once we’re done, we present you with what we think will be a great holiday for you. This will include what you’re interested in and exclude what you’re not. We mix and match itineraries to make the most of your time and handpick hotels just for you in every destination. We also pair you with a guide that knows about the things you want to learn about. Once you get your itinerary from us, most of the work is done for you. If things aren’t quite right, we’re always happy to alter any part you feel needs changed. Then all you need to do is pack your bag and head to the airport to enjoy a tailored itinerary that is unique and just right for you.
