How It Works

TRAVEL COACHING CLIENTS:

  • Fill out the pre-trip questionnaire.
  • We’ll contact you via email to discuss your trip.
  • You’ll be given a customized document that’s unique to you with all the details you’ll need. It’s essentially a personalized guidebook with only the information that’s relevant to you.
  • We are available to answer your questions during your trip planning process.
  • You’ll have a scheduled video or phone call with a Lotus Compass trip guide to make sure you have all the information you need.

TRAVEL PLANNING CLIENTS:

  • Fill out the pre-trip questionnaire.
  • We’ll contact you via email to discuss your trip.
  • A Lotus Compass trip guide will put together a recommended overall itinerary that will incorporate the things you wished for, plus some extras we think you’ll love. You might say, “Yes, let’s go for it!” or you might want to discuss a few things, tweak some items, or compare different options. At the end of this phase, you’ll know what the highlights of your Camino, you’ll know how far you’ll walk, and you’ll know how to logistics getting to and from your initial walking route.
  • Once the itinerary is agreed upon, we will book your accommodations, make any necessary restaurant reservations, book ground transportation, and arrange your activities, in consultation with you at every step.
  • You’ll be given a customized, day-by-day itinerary that’s unique to you with all the details you’ll need. It’s essentially a personalized guidebook with only the information that’s relevant to you. We’ll put your itinerary into a travel app so you can download the details to your phone before your trip.
  • We’re available to answer your questions during the entire process.
  • Together we’ll review your trip plans and to make sure you have all the information you need.
  • While we take care of the details, you can get started with your training plan and break in those hiking boots before your trip!
