Welcome to Custom Travel Planning & Destination Management by The Cape Discovered
STEP 1: CONSULTATION
During the initial consultation with our Destination Consultant, we will learn what it is you are expecting of your trip to Southern Africa. This consultation can take place via Skype or FaceTime (it is always nice to see each other!) or can be telephonic, at a time that is mutually convenient. Be prepared to provide as much detail as possible about what you want. Information required includes your group size, the type of accommodation you expect, the level of activity you are comfortable with, destinations you wish to visit, and experiences you are looking for, etc. Be prepared to discuss your trip budget. We will share, free of charge, our knowledge of accommodations, meals, transfers or flights that may be required, activities and more. You will receive a Travel Planning Questionnaire to complete at your leisure, and then return it to us in order for us to start designing your custom travel plan. The Questionnaire and your answers are treated as confidential and private and will only be used to assist us in designing a plan around your requirements. Based on this initial consultation, a tailored Draft Itinerary will be presented to you.
STEP 2. A CUSTOM DRAFT ITINERARY IS DESIGNED
Through further communications the Draft Itinerary will be fine-tuned until we arrive at a suitable itinerary that you authorise us to proceed with. If we have captured the essence of the trip that you are looking for, you may choose to confirm the proposed trip with the deposit. If you decide that the itinerary requires further modification, or if the trip does not work for your proposed travel dates, we will revise the itinerary and return it to you for further review and confirmation.

STEP 3. YOUR CUSTOM PLAN IS BOOKED AND MANAGED
Once the Final Itinerary has been confirmed, we require a completed Booking Form and a deposit payment to secure all proposed bookings and reservations. The deposit amount can vary depending on the trip; however, it usually averages 50% of the total cost of your custom trip. Once the deposit is received, we will secure your travel arrangements and forward to you all necessary details. Your custom travel consultant, with whom you booked your trip, will continue to work with you ensuring you are well prepared for the journey of a lifetime.
