Findaway Travels is not necessarily a service that you have come across before, so I thought it would be useful to outline some of the queries I imagine you’d have, before making contact with me.
First and foremost, I am not a travel agent. I am not able to book flights, I do not have a hotline to resorts, I am not ABTA registered, I do not own a Travel Counseler franchise.
What I am, is someone who enjoys the time consuming and often overwhelming research that finding a perfect holiday ultimately involves. My speciality is getting slightly off the beaten track, going for views, unusal accomodation and with an emphasis on sustainable and ethical travel over all-inclusive or package holidays.
I have two kids myself, so I understand the intricacies and detail needed to make family holiday work with children, but equally I have travelled a lot without kids, so also understand if there is a need for an adults-only environment.
See below for some answers, but if you have any questions I haven’t covered, please drop me an email on email@example.com – I am more than happy to have a chat before you need to make any decision about signing up for one of the packages – see here for pricing details
Do I need to pay before the phone consultation?If you have general questions about the services I provide, I would be delighted to have an informal chat with you before you need to make any commitment
What happens after you have given us the different options?I would be assuming that you’d be in a position to book quite soon after I’d delivered your options – part of the package would be making sure there is availabilty at the different accomodation options for example, at the time of my enquiries. Often, the places that I would be looking at are small and boutiquey so you probably would need to act quite fast in order to secure a spot in the sun. I can help with this though, you wont be on your own.
Have you been to all the places you want to send us too?Not IRL – but believe me, if I recommend them to clients, it’s because I have done as much background work as possible and I think they would be a good fit. I’m spreading my wings in the social media travel community and it’s a lovely place to be – people are really keen to share knowledge and stories and keep people travelling. So you can be rest assured that I will have gleaned as much information as possible for you, about the places that I put on your option list.
What if none of the options you present to me, are what I’m after?This would of course be really unfortunate – but it’s a feasible scenario. It’s best if you consider me someone who can give you inspiration as to where to go, with a huge amount more detail than just perusing the normal sites and social media profiles. I would really hope that you book a holiday off the back of what I present, but if not, at the very least I would hope that I have offered you more options and more ideas than you had in the first place.
