In the world of Google and online booking, anyone who has the time and resources can book a trip to just about anywhere. But handling travel arrangements yourself can bring unwanted headaches, missed connections, and logistics you didn’t even know you needed to think about, especially when it comes to multi country holidays.
There are obvious reasons to use a designer: they can find the best deals, have relationships with locals who can offer authentic cultural experiences and can even get you a reservation at that booked-for-months-in-advance restaurant. Beyond that, there are also particular reasons to use a designer when booking multi country holidays.
Seamless Travel Itineraries
Planning an international trip requires airline, hotel, and transfer reservations. And that’s just to get you to the hotel. What about all the activities and restaurant reservations while you are there? Multi country holidays involve even more forethought than single destination trips when it comes to booking flights, hotels, and transfers. That’s where a travel designer comes in. At Ker & Downey, our expert designers take on the hassle and stress of juggling multiple connections and destinations to create a seamless itinerary with door to door service. Simply pack your bags, charge your camera batteries, and enjoy a memorable journey.
More Enriching Experiences
A big reason to work with a Ker & Downey designer on international trips is to take advantage of the relationships we have built all over the world. Ker & Downey has a long history in the travel business. We’ve built invaluable relationships and have extensive knowledge in all corners of the world. So when you use Ker & Downey to book your multi country holidays, you can confidently know we aren’t repackaging authentic experiences from another itinerary. Instead, each journey is built around your desires, resulting in a tailored journey of experiences curated just for you.
In-House Air Department
Ker & Downey has partnerships with some of the top airline carriers in the industry. We’ve also got one of the best in-house air departments in the business. If there is an issue with your flights or you need to be rebooked, our air department is your number one advocate. They’ll hop on the phone and speak with the airlines so you don’t have to.
While every Ker & Downey journey is well-planned, sometimes things happen that are out of our control. In the unfortunate event that something should derail your journey, you’ll have local emergency contacts as well as someone on call here in the United States to get your trip back on track, whether that’s a different room or a flight out of the country. In the event of a crisis, you will be protected by our partnership with Global Rescue, who will deploy at the drop of a hat to get you and your traveling companions to safety.
Ker & Downey’s Favorite Multi Country Holidays
On Safari in Southern Africa | The best way to book a safari is through a designer. That is especially true when booking a multi country safari. In addition to the regular flights and transfers that come with any trip, the easiest way to hop between safari properties is on small charter flights. And no one can navigate those schedules like an African Specialist can. Ker & Downey’s 13-day safari through South Africa, Botswana, and Zambia is one of our favorite multi country safaris. It’s explores the best of the South African Cape, Okavango Delta, and Victoria Falls in true luxury. This three-country safari is great for safari newbies and seasoned safari-goers alike.
Peru & Ecuador Wellness Journey | This journey is one of transformation – which is a cornerstone of the Ker & Downey experience. We strive to change people’s lives not through five-star properties or even first-class tickets (though we certainly deliver that too); but through once-in-a-lifetime experiences catered to each individual’s interests and tastes. This wellness journey through Peru and Ecuador was created for the peace seeker in search of serene landscapes, immersive nature, and remote destinations that cultivate enrichment and transformation of not just the mind and body, but also the heart.
The Grand Caucasus | Ker & Downey’s Grand Caucasus program through Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan embodies one of our favorite elements: the element of surprise. The Caucasus may not be a well-known or well-traveled region, which is why its wealth of history and culture is so delightfully surprising to anyone who travels there with us. There is nothing “classic” about this journey. Every step is a surprising new venture, whether it be a family home opened just for you, a first taste of the region’s ancient qvevri wine, or a deep dive into one of the world’s most cherished cultures.
Path of the Polynesians | Selected by National Geographic Traveler as one of the 50 Tours of a Lifetime, Ker & Downey’s Path of the Polynesians is a cultural journey to far-flung destinations throughout the Pacific. The whirlwind adventure looks at the storied culture of the Polynesians from Easter Islands to the Marquesas Islands and New Zealand.
Wonders of Indochina | The luxury travel market in Southeast Asia is exploding with luxury resorts on exclusive islands and chic city hotels. If you’re going to make that long-haul flight, you should see as much of Southeast Asia as you can. Ker & Downey’s Wonders of Indochina journey highlights the best of Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Thailand through an exploration of culture, historical, religious, and scenic sites, delicious food, and its many bustling markets over 20 days.
