When should I book my trip?
We accept sign-ups for most tours up to one week prior to departure or until we have reached capacity for the trip. That said, we recommend signing-up around three months prior to departure to ensure we have ample time to prepare your tour, address any questions or concerns and assist with booking travel if you wish. Ultimately, if a tour date is listed on our website, that generally means we are still accepting sign-ups for it!

As soon as you register for a trip, a $1000 deposit is due to reserve your spot. If you are booking more than one tour at a time, a $1000 deposit is required for each trip.After you make your initial deposit, you will receive your Healthy Traveler Retreats welcome email in your inbox (Please check spam if you don’t see it) Your registration will not be processed until a deposit is received.

FLIGHTS AND TRAVEL

We’ll let you know which airport to fly into and the ideal times. We offer an ‘all inclusive’ service for $150 which allows you to sit back while we book the best ticket for you. We are unable to book travel paid with frequent flyer miles.
What if I’m traveling alone?

Can I join a tour late, or leave early?
Yes, you can join late or leave early. However, you will also be responsible for any additional transportation costs of joining a tour late or leaving early to get to your destination.
What if I miss the domestic flight or land transportation?
Our trips typically start with ground transportation or a domestic flight to our retreat destination. If you happen to miss the scheduled flight or ground transportation, you will be responsible for any additional travel costs to catch up with the group. We recommend arriving at least 12-24 hours before the start of the retreat to ensure you are on time for our group transport. This will help in the event that your initial flight is delayed or cancelled.
WHAT TO BRING
What kind of luggage should I bring?
You’re more than welcome to bring any kind of luggage that suits your needs.
How much spending money will I need?
That all depends on how much you like to shop! While on retreat, all of your meals, excursions, transportation, and outlined activities are paid for. You only need spending money for personal shopping and alcoholic beverages. We recommend at least $250.
What will I need to pack?
Once you register and send your deposit, you will receive an email highlighting everything that you would need for your trip. It is very important that you take a look at the packing list so you can be prepared. We recommend you don't over pack so that you have room to bring some stuff home!
Is there an age limit to join one of your trips?
We have no official age limit, however we ask that you are in good physical shape and able to participate in the listed excursions for your trip. If you are between the ages of 15-18 you must be accompanied by an adult (parent or guardian.)
