Frequently asked questions:
How do I reserve a place on a Wise Birding Holiday?
It is a simple three stage process that can be found here.
Where can I find your Terms & Conditions?
These can be found by clicking on BOOKINGS on the menu.
Do Wise Birding Holidays book flights?
Due to the vast choice and flexibility of the ever increasing on-line flight deals that can be found and because we do not have an Air Travel Organiser’s Licence we are unable to book flights for our customers. It is therefore important to choose flights with a reputable airline in the event of any problems. We do suggest airlines that travel to our destinations at the bottom of each itinerary webpage and we also have a contact at Trailfinders who can arrange any long haul flights for you.
What payment protection do I have if I book a Wise Birding holiday ?
In order to comply with the Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992 and more importantly, to ensure your money remains protected – all payments received by us are held in a separate client account where your money remains until the successful completion of the Tour.
If you do not book flights, how do I know where and when to meet with you ?
Once we have the minimum number of people required for the trip to run, we will send you a Tour Information Pack that will clearly state the meeting time and place. This is generally at the destination airport.
Do you have a Wise Birding Holiday brochure?
We have a Tour Summary brochure for 2014 that simply gives the basic details of each holiday – a copy of this is available on request. Please email us.
More detailed itineraries and full details are always on our website.
How can I find out what conservation work will be done in the different countries that Wise Birding Holidays visit?
Each itinerary clearly states what conservation work will benefit as a result of you joining a Wise Birding tour. To find out more about the conservation projects that we donate to, please visit the Conservation Projects section of this website.
What percentage of the holiday price that I pay will actually go towards conservation?
This will very much depend on the country, but it is generally between 2 – 5% of the total holiday price (per person) that we donate to a project. When multiplied by the number of people on the tour this is a significant amount going to conservation. Each tour itinerary clearly states the amount at the very top of the relevant webpage.
