If enough interest is garnered, Sacred Mythic Journeys will cater a trip exactly for you and/or your group.
Do I need travel/medical insurance?
Travel/medical insurance is highly recommended, but is of course optional, for all intrepid travelers and can be taken out after booking. If purchased, at a minimum, we advise that your travel insurance should provide cover against personal accident, death, medical expenses, emergency repatriation and personal liability, with a minimum coverage of US$200,000. We also strongly recommend it covers cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects. You should bring proof of your travel insurance on the first day of your Sacred Mythic Journey.
How much will my journey cost?
This one is the million-dollar question. Simply put, the earlier you book your journey the best deal you will be able to secure. There are also some great limited time only discount coupons available when booking more than one 7-day journey at the same time.
Can I opt out of certain activities if I want to?
Absolutely. If there are included or optional activities that you don’t wish to participate in, you can do your own thing instead. The exception to this is when we are trekking or travelling from one destination to the next. Please note that if you choose to opt out of an included activity, no reimbursement can be made by us.
Do you offer a discount for children?
We offer discounts for children for most of the journeys published on our website. The discount depends on the age of the child and on the Sacred Mythic Journey being offered. If children of a certain age are prohibited from a particular journey or activity, it will be stated in the journey details. Please contact us if you have other questions about traveling with children.
What about Local Customs and Culture?
Some countries, especially in the Middle East and Asia, dress more conservatively than we do. You shouldn’t for example wear revealing shorts/mini skirts or sleeveless tops in these places, so ensure you have some other forms of clothing packed in your bag. You don’t want to show unintentional disrespect and miss out on the opportunity to see such fabulous places just because you don’t have the right top with you!
What should I do if I miss my flight?
If you miss your flight, you should immediately notify the airline so that you are not considered a “no show.” The airline can assist you with re-booking on the next available flight. If there is a mechanical problem, delay, canceled flight or missed connection, most airlines will attempt to rebook you on the next available flight at no charge, however, there is no requirement for them to do so at no cost. To help prevent missing your flight, make sure to check your flight status to see if departure times or gates have changed and make sure you have sufficient time between connections.
Are airport transfers included?
Most of our journeys do not include airport transfers and so we recommend you arrange a taxi on arrival (this is the most economical and efficient way of getting you to your hotel/meeting place). If you would prefer a pre-arranged transfer these are usually available at an additional cost – please contact us for more information.
How much money should I carry?
Carry just enough money to cover your expenses. Call your bank and let them know you which foreign country you will be using your ATM card. Otherwise, the bank’s theft prevention service may cancel the card thinking it’s been stolen. Also, carry traveler’s checks in the event you don’t have enough local currency to buy something and you can’t use your ATM card. Not all businesses are equipped to take them.
