One-Stop Travel Service
We Can Handle It!

We can handle your land arrangements, your air arrangements, your hotels, insurance, transfers, stopovers, guides, drivers, boats, camels, elephants - you name it!
We Answer the Phone!
Tired of Holding?
If you've ever called a big travel company, you know how frustrating it is to wait on hold for someone to take your call and to find out that every time you call, someone new is looking at your file and you have to explain your experience over again each time.
This doesn't happen at TrailFinders. We attempt to answer every call personally and while we are usually able do that within three rings, it may take a bit longer while we are working from our homes and our clients are keeping us extremely busy. If you are required to leave a message, it may be because we are all on the phone!
We know who you are and what the status of your booking is. We know who is looking after your file. We rarely put you on hold. We call you back. We answer our email promptly. We make promises that we actually keep.
We are here for you.
Our Services are mostly free!
And we only charge service fees when we really need to.
Still paying service fees somewhere else?
Then, you'll be glad to hear that most travel services provided by our staff are free of service fees for most of our regular leisure travellers, provided they book all their travel items with us on a continuing basis.
In some cases, we may have to pass on to you occasional ticketing or service fees which are charged by certain airlines or ticketing offices based on certain choices you have made. These are most often processed on domestic and US air tickets and are sometimes applied on international air tickets that are booked without land arrangements of any kind, however we try our best to avoid these whenever we can.
In addition, our in-house slideshows, travel seminars and our informative newsletters are provided free of charge to anyone who has requested them.
For government and corporate travellers we do have to charge a service fee due to the more complex operations associated with business travel and frequent last-minute bookings and itinerary changes. Currently, our corporate fees are significantly less than those of other travel companies.
