What Where2Next? Travel, LLC Does
In order to perform the professional services required to plan and arrange your travel, a retainer is required. A Consultant Retainer or Small Private Group Retainer is required on all bespoke itineraries and small group travel (16 or fewer). Both the Consultant Retainer and The Small Private Group Retainer are non-refundable and are not applicable toward travel costs. The Consultant Retainer and the Small Private Group Retainer cover the time for the work necessary in tailoring your itinerary. Please refer to my Client Welcome Brochure for additional information.
Where2Next? Travel, LLC custom curates all itineraries based on client needs and wishes. Due to the amount of time allocated to the customization of each proposal, there is a Consultant Retainer due prior to a proposal being compiled, created and/or presented. By moving forward and scheduling a call, you agree and understand that you will be quoted a Consultant Retainer based on the intricacies of your specific trip. All agency fees are non-refundable, regardless of trip outcome.
Shaping customized travel experiences entails a considerable amount of time and research that you will be delegating to Where2Next? Travel, LLC to manage on your behalf. My work encompasses years of personal experience and professional expertise in the following:
Travel document preparation
Researching and vetting commercial or chartered air travel, rail travel, cruises, private villas, chartered vessels, resorts, hotels, and tours to meet your specific needs

Each time the original maximum number of proposals is exceeded, the client will incur an additional non-refundable Consultant Retainer. Initiating non-emergency, substantive changes to your booked itinerary that are not originated by your airline, cruise line, tour operator, or other travel services provider will incur a non-refundable Substantive Change fee of $515 (substantive changes include, but are not limited to changing travelers; adding travelers (including those travelers who are not clients of Where2Next?

Trip cancelations will incur a non-refundable $103 per person Cancelation Fee in addition to any required penalties outlined by any and all travel and tour operators as part of their Terms & Conditions. Other fees may apply - please refer to the Client Welcome Brochure. By paying the Consultant Retainer, you acknowledge acceptance of these terms.
