|Trip planning can saves you time and money. Especially for
less developed areas, good planning can also significantly reduce your frustration. That is why
we offer our years of experience through our Travel Consulting Service.
Ibike / Bicycle Africa offers private consultation for any kind of travel in Africa and other regions where we have some expertise. If you have a special interest or unique itinerary that does not fall into the realm of regular programs let us help you plan your trip.
You can take advantage of our knowledge by scheduling an individual pretrip consultation with our staff, by arranging a telephone, email (ibike @ ibike dot org) or by writing us a letter. (If you are writing please give us as much information as possible on where you want to go, how you want to travel, what you would like to see, when you plan to travel, etc.) Please contact us well in advance of your departure so that appointment can be scheduled when we are not in traveling and so that you have plenty of time to complete the necessary preparations.
Our private database and files contain more information than you will find in any travel guide. To the extent possible, we will supply you with information from the database, copies of articles, reading lists, brochures, maps, information on health, customs, immigrations, and currency, and special handouts, to make your trip more efficient. Most importantly we will go over your plans with you, showing you how to get the most out of each day.
We charge $50 an hour, with a one hour minimum. Written and telephone consultations must be paid in advance. Generally one hour is sufficient for the initial consultation on most trips. The most effective use of consultation time occurs when we have a detailed list of interests and question from you in advance. We do not charge for research time, only time preparing your papers and itinerary.
We look forward to helping you have a successful journey.
Similar to our travel consulting service, whether you plan to travel by bicycle, foot, boat, train, rental car, or local transport, on a fee basis we can put together a self-guided itinerary for you, including maps, lodging, logistics and points of interest. Ask for details.
