Once upon a time we only planned trips for ourselves. But as time went on and more friends and acquaintances heard stories
of our travels, their envy was undisguised. Ultimately a few of them began requesting help with their trips, and soon others
were volunteering to pay for the research and details that would make their trips more than "just vacations". Our
own style of travel is modest, but we appreciate the finest things in life as much as the next person. You'll never lay your
head in a place we wouldn't stay ourselves, or visit a place we'd consider a waste of time.
is planning an interesting and comfortable trip for you, whether that means a second class couchette or the Orient Express,
a bed and breakfast or a rented villa. It matters not if your getaway is for three days or three months. We want you to return
with sweet memories and tales to tell, and we work hard to unearth the hidden gems that will appeal to your interests. We
can prepare a packet for you before you depart, including all your hotel and local transportation info as well as any needed
maps, books and details on those gems at your destination which should be of particular appeal to you.
kind of planning is quite time-consuming and may add to the cost of your trip. But at the same time quite a few clients end
up spending LESS than originally planned for their trips because Mon Voyage has diligently found the best value for money.
Clients are free to prioritize their spending: some wish to spend more on hotel rooms, others would rather have extra money
for wine! You may also have certain elements of your trip already planned but desire some enhancements that we can organize
for you. We are willing to take on any size project, from major to minor, because we want your trip to be fantastic.
travel professionals charge $50 to $75 per hour for this type of in-depth planning service, and some as much as $100 an hour.
At Mon Voyage you'll pay only $30 an hour for that service, and my clients would agree that it's worth every penny. For a
typical itinerary, the kind of detailed research and planning service we provide may add about $30 to $60 to the per day cost
of your trip, depending on the level of detail and time required. But again, after hiring Mon Voyage, many of them are coming
in below their planned budgets, so the net cost is negligible; and the peace of mind gained from a hassle-free trip is worth
the modest investment.
