Yes, travel insurance is an important part of traveling and is mandatory for our travelers. We require travel insurance proof on the first day of the trip for further processing. No traveler is allowed to join the trip without the insurance.
A travel insurance should have cover against personal and financial accidents. It should cover medical expenses as well as emergency events, personal liabilities, and death. We require a travel insurance coverage minimum of £200,000. Moreover, we suggest your plan also includes cancellation of trips, luggage loss as well as personal damage.
It is in your best interest to have your travel insurance sorted before your trip. When choosing a plan you need to consider all the emergency problems, accident management, and personal losses. We also encourage you to have your policy number handy at all times as well as an emergency contact number that we can use in order to contact someone in case of a mishap. You should also ensure your personal contact details and any other necessary information is accessible to the insurance company as well as any details you may need to contact them in any emergencies. Mishaps can occur anytime and trip cancellations are one of them. We encourage you to choose a plan that has trip cancellation benefits as well. The insurance plan will then cover your trip if you need to cancel it due to unavoidable causes such as illness, injury, weather issues or other unforeseen events. You do need to know that insurance policies don’t cover trip cancellation if you simply change your mind.
Yes, you can. We are organizing weekly meetups in various places in London so you can know your group far before the trip. You will receive our weekly invites in your email when you subscribe and also information about new upcoming trips. Our weekly events you can find also on Meetups under the name London Adventure Meetup Group where already have join over a 1000 people since May 2018. You can also stay in touch with the group on our What’s up travel group, where the new meeting and trips are posted. We have also created separate travel group before the trip. It will include only the people who you will be traveling with.
We try to keep our group sizes small in order to cater to each individual separately. We work to make this trip amazing for every individual and this is best achieved if we take small groups and give each person our maximum attention. A small group means we can deliver excellent dynamics of the group and set real friendships. We tend to limit our group down to 8-14 people. We usually tend to stick with 8 people. However, on Overland trips assisted with purpose-built vehicles, we do often take 16 travellers with us for a memorable experience. We also display the group size on the trip’s page.
We choose leaders based on their expertise and their ability to keep the group together. Our leaders have roamed the area for years and are no stranger to the dialect or the terrains of the region. However, we will not be telling you who your group leader will be before the trip but you can rest assured that they will be awesome!
Yes, you can join us part of the way. You can leave earlier if you wish but you do need to inform us prior to doing this so we can manage accordingly. However, you will not be compensated for the remainder of the trip. We will inform our team about your schedule so that they can manage accordingly
We will not be able to change the itinerary for every traveller. We, therefore, request you to review it thoroughly prior to booking and ensure you are happy with it.

We make our travel arrangements well in advance and usually book twin rooms. This is why it may not be possible to cater to your individual room requests even for the additional price.
We do give you the option of booking your single room pre and post trip. However, during the trip, the rooms are booked on a twin room basis. These bookings are placed well in advance, which is why it is impossible to cater to this request during the trip. For the pre and post trip accommodation, kindly mention your preferences at the time of booking.

Currently, all of our trips are within Europe. However, it is important for you to contact your local embassy and check the details as the visa rules are susceptible to change.

If this seems difficult you can always visit a travel agent to inquire further.

Relaxation is very important while you are travelling. That is why to Take a Trip Pro always organises its itinerary in a way that you can have one day for yourself to explore or relax as you like. If there is anything you want to do, if you want to shop or just relax, this is the perfect time to do so! In the weekend trips, this free time is usually scheduled on the last evening or on the last day.
Kindly notify us if you will be arriving late on the trip as this will help us manage fellow travellers and our time. It will also help us avoid any unnecessary waiting. If you miss part of the trip, you need to communicate this with us. We will tell the trip leader who can then lead specific instructions for you at the accomodation so that you can join the trip midway and enjoy the remaining part of it! If you plan to join the group on the second or the third day, you will be responsible for arriving at the destination to join the group. However, If you are unable to do so, you can always contact us on our emergency contact. We will not be able to refund any part of the missed trip but any unavoidable circumstances can be claimed against your insurance.
