From village homestays in the hills to cosy cabanas on castaway beaches, we offer a whole range of bite-sized trips across each of our destinations in Asia and Latin America. All you have to do is pick and choose the trips that take your fancy and our Travel Specialists will piece them together using a combination of transport and locally-run accommodation, to build your own personal holiday itinerary. Alternatively, if you want to choose something ‘off the peg’ or are simply in need of a little inspiration, you can choose from our selection of ready-made itineraries.
Step 1: Pick & choose your favourite trips
Once you’ve browsed through our range of authentic travel experiences, simply pick and choose the bite-sized trips that catch your eye and add them to your ‘Travel Plan’.
If you don’t fancy building your holiday using our bite-sized trips, you can choose one of our ready-made itineraries instead.
Step 2: Request a quote
Once you’ve added your chosen trips or itinerary to your Travel Plan, you can send it our way to get a quote. Our Travel Specialists will then get in touch with you to chat further about your exciting travel plans. Using their in-depth knowledge and touching upon their own personal travel experiences, they’ll talk you through your itinerary ideas, recommending the most logical routes and giving tips on the best places to visit.
They’ll link your trips together using a combination of local accommodation and transport options. They can even organise your international flights, meaning that your whole trip is booked and protected under one roof.
Step 3 – Tweak & book your trip
Next, your Travel Specialist will send you your own personalised itinerary with a quote which includes details of your day-by-day, examples of the unique accommodation you’ll stay in and your transport links. Want to make a change? No problem, your Travel Specialist will work with you to tweak and alter your trip until you’re happy. Once your final itinerary has been crafted, we’ll ask for a small deposit for your land arrangements and full payment for any international flights booked.
Our deposit system for your land arrangements is based on your departure date and works as follows:
- Departure in 3 calendar months or more: 20% deposit
- Departure within 1 to 3 calendar months: 50% deposit
- Departure in less than 1 calendar month: 75% deposit
Then, we’ll get busy with our local partners to finalise the intricate details and get your trip all booked up for you. Now you just have to sit back and relax while we arrange everything for you.
Step 4 – Get ready to go
After everything has been confirmed and you’ve booked your trip, we’ll email you a package of travel documents, including your full accommodation details and information about our local partners in the destination. This will also include an emergency contact number and the office addresses. Our local partners will be available 24/7 to lend a hand with anything that you need during your trip. Being located within the destination itself, they’re in a really good position to help you out if any issues arise during your trip.
Step 5 – Welcome home!
Once you return home the fun doesn’t stop there. Your Travel Specialist will give you a call to check in and see how your trip went – customer feedback is really important to us, so be honest and let us know what in particular made your trip so special.
At Rickshaw, we know that list of must-see places never gets shorter, so we’re sure you’ll be ready to get your next adventure all booked up. It means a lot to us when our customers return to us, so to celebrate, we will always include a special excursion or upgrade in your next trip. It’s just our way of saying ‘thank you’ for continuing to travel in a meaningful way.
