Travel Consultation (usually via e-mail but also by phone if
necessary - whatever works best for you); This allows us to
get an idea of what your interests are - how much time you have
to spend in France - how many places
you want to or must see - hotels, villas, farms - what will
give you a total French experience,
yet keep you comfortable - pricing of hotels - travel timing
- we add our expertise and recommendations for your trip - things
you might not have thought about and other particulars that
impact a trip.
2- Once we've consulted, I devise travel itineraries
and options based on all of the information we've discussed.
I then send you at least five options that are open to change
- I always remember that we're making your
perfect trip. Once you've narrowed down the options and made
some changes - we're left with your best trip.
3- I then start booking hotels based on what
I know, where I've stayed, your pricing information and the
season. Once that is done and we've confirmed the hotels, I
start work on your "manifesto" or personalized travel
itinerary. *changes in confirmed hotel reservations
will result in additional charges.
4- The personalized travel itinerary includes
several things: a booklet with
all of your hotel correspondence and reservation confirmations,
car rental confirmations, train confirmations and any other
reservations we've made for you; you'll
have a complete itinerary with all of your hotels, addresses,
phone numbers, touring/sight-seeing advice and options, restaurant
recommendations (and reservations if desired), shopping recommendations,
driving directions, travel tips and other confirmations and
correspondence; I also include several copies of contact
phone and fax numbers for you to leave with your family, friends
and office (just in case they need to contact you); Additionally,
I include a few other small items to make your trip easy.

Should your plans change or you decide to cancel your trip,
I am happy to make the hotel cancellations. You will be responsible
for any hotel cancellation penalties, if any do apply. I will
also cancel your car rental reservations with the same understanding
regarding penalties. Any changes to air travel will be on your
own as you will have these tickets to use in the future. For
each cancellation I make, I will charge you $10 per cancellation
and you will not be refunded the initial $400 for my services
as services were indeed rendered on your behalf.
