What will the consulting services cost?

For a list of the cost for trip planning and arrangement services, see Consulting Services. In most cases, having a professional travel consultant book your travel arrangements for you will save you time and money but add little or nothing to the overall cost of your trip. The cost of trip planning is $500 for trips up to 3 weeks; $50 per additional week.

The trip planning fee is payable up-front as a "plan to go fee." It is non-refundable. If you go on the trip as proposed in your work contract with Travel Experience Consulting, then the fee is applied towards the final cost of your trip. If you cancel, the fee is forfeited.
