Travel & Insurance
Getting to & From your WalkingWomen Holiday
Travel to the start of the holiday is arranged by you. Our holidays start from the arrival point at your destination.
Many of our guests do like to make their own travel arrangements or extend their holiday to visit friends or spend longer somewhere.
If you need help with flights or extentions just ask WalkingWomen and we will do what we can to help. We have discounts with some hotels and our local guides can make many recommendations.
General Information on WalkingWomen holidays
On UK holidays please arrive at your accommodation on Day 1 at 15.00 in time for a short walk, evening welcome and dinner together. Usually, the welcome will be at 6.30pm followed by dinner – but each holiday itinerary will confirm the details. Rooms are usually available from 3pm. Our guides encourage groups to eat together but it is always a personal choice.
On Overseas holidays arrive for pick ups at airports at 15.00. Details will always be available on each holiday itinerary.
Walks usually start after breakfast each day and latest by 10am. Their length depends on the grade and sometimes we might change a walk because of the weather. The walk on the last day is shorter, and we are generally back by 2pm so please bear this in mind when making travel arrangements.
On most WW overseas holidays we will meet you in Arrivals at the destination airport. We include the transfer to your accommodation on practically all overseas holidays. Please see the website and your holiday information sheet for the time of this transfer and/or the flights that it meets.
Adequate travel insurance is mandatory for all our overseas holidays and is a condition of booking. For UK holidays we recommend it. We ask you to provide the name of your insurance company and the policy number on your details form when you book.
It should include protection in case you are ill or have to cancel for other reasons, even on UK holidays. If you choose to travel without adequate insurance cover we will not be liable for any losses.
If you are still looking for travel insurance, try Emerald Life, a company that works to ensure equality in insurance for women and the LGBT community, and regularly wins awards for their advocacy work.
For single, couples and groups all over the world, with medical coverage for walking and more extreme pursuits.
