Customer Case Study – Walking the Pembrokeshire Coast Path

I had the pleasure of receiving an email from Susanne back in January 2018 – an excited email which clearly detailed her plans, dates, and budget (the perfect starting point!). I emailed within a few days, as I always try to do with a proposed itinerary, and some information on BookMyTrails booking service to ensure Susanne had the full picture. It only took a few emails of back and forth, clarifying details and asking some questions before together we had an itinerary in place.

Sometimes it takes 10 emails to get things just right, sometimes it takes two. Either way, I am always happy to work with clients until we have things just right, after all it’s your walking holiday.

After payment of the deposit, I passed the booking information onto Kimberley, who handles the actual important task of making the reservations. I’ve been fortunate enough to work with Kimberley for over a year now, and she books everything perfectly every time – communicating details to me with precision and honestly, I have never had an issue with anything she has booked.

Susanne’s booking was in good hands.

A few weeks after payment we were finished with bookings. Sometimes it takes a few weeks and for some bookings only days to arrange everything. Either way, we aim to have all bookings completed within 1-2 weeks.

When the booking was finished, I emailed Susanne her itinerary.

We booked with some of our favorite accommodations including Glendower Guest House, the quirky Hybernia Pub and recently established Brynteg Bed and Breakfast.

Once Susanne had approved the itinerary, I fired off my accommodation confirmations, sent an invoice for collection of final payment and and sent Susannes money safely on its way to each of her B&Bs.

All that needed to happen now was the walk 🙂

Fun Facts

If this walk was booked through a normal walking holiday company, including the solo supplement, the total would have been about: £1710.00

We managed to book this walk for approximately £1160.00. However that does not include a luggage transfer which probably would have been an extra £200.00, bringing the total to £1360.00, that’s a saving of £350.00! Although we don’t work in a conventional way, and your walk is not covered under the package travel regulations, we do offer an honest, professional and reliable service.

It was a pleasure to bring yet another clients walk to life, and Susanne kindly sent me some photos of her walk!



For those wishing to use the itinerary for 15 nights, 14 days please feel free:
