How it works - BookMyTrail

Hassle-free bookings

Tailor made trip planning and booking service designed for solo long distance walkers

Now its time for something a bit different

In addition to our fixed price walking holidays we have something else to offer you. There is certainly a growing appetite for trip planning services, over pre-paid tours, like the ones we sell and BookMyTrail is proud to offer this service to you. We started in 2015 with just a trip planning service and have grown since, so this is still very much the core of what we do. Find out how it works below.

Itinerary Design

We work with you to design your perfect itinerary which fits around the time you have available and the miles you want to walk.

Bookings

Once your are happy with your itinerary we will start booking accommodations for each night.

Luggage

Need your bags moving? Not a problem, most trails have access to luggage transfer options we also arrange this on your behalf.

£20.00

Per person, per night is all it costs for BookMyTrail to make your arrangements each night.

Once we have made your arrangements we will bill you for the final cost. That includes accommodation and bag transfer costs.

The process

1. It starts with an email

Either email directly at matt@bookmytrail.com or fill in the form on our contact page. Once we have started talking we can determine your needs and see if we are a good match.

2. Decide on the details

We will work together to agree on dates, overnight stops, and daily distances until you are happy with the provisional itinerary which you would like us to book.

3. Pay the booking fee

If you are happy with these details, we will send over an invoice so you can pay our booking fee. Click here to find out more about how our fees work.

4. Booking

With payment in hand, and an agreed itinerary we will start booking your accommodations. Usually, this takes a few weeks.

5. Receive your itinerary

We will send you your itinerary via email, in a PDF format, along with a final invoice for the collective cost of accommodations. If you are happy with the details all you need to do is pay! If not, we will happily tweak your arrangements.

6. Pack your bags

With your completed itinerary in hand, and our suppliers paid up you are ready to walk. Pack your bags, tie up your boots and enjoy your perfect walking holiday.
