Here’s how it all works…
Travel With Raelinn offers you 3 levels of travel planning:
I take care of absolutely everything for you from the moment you leave until you return home.
For travelers who don’t need any frills. All your basic travel needs are covered with a few special extras.
I give you my insider guidelines, you do the rest!
Step 1 and Step 2 are the same for all levels of travel services.
First, we’ll have a conversation via email where I’ll ask you questions about you and your travel companions because this trip is all about you. I want you to have an unforgettable and seamless experience so I’ll ask about things like your budget, your overall desires for your trip, your general interests like hiking or museums, how ambitious you are for packing in the sights or simply relaxing in a gorgeous setting.
Second, once I feel that I have a good idea of what you’re looking for (and once you’ve paid your initial $125 planning fee*), I’ll send you my proposed general itinerary to make sure that we are all on the same page. I hope you will say, “she nailed it!” But if we need to, we will talk about things further or make a few changes until we get it just right. After this is completed, you’ll have all the bones of the trip.
*In certain cases the planning fee is applied to the overall cost of your trip. This will be indicated in writing in our agreement.
I have a flat consulting fee that I charge at each level of service in addition to the variable costs for your trip (things like the kind of vehicle you wish to use, the level of accommodation from 5-star luxury to charming B&B, how many meals you wish to include, cooking lessons, yacht charters, etc.) And I break that cost down for you in our formal quote. Depending upon your level of service and the platform used to book your trip, there will also be a mandatory trip deposit that is based on and applied to the total cost of your vacation.
My fees are as follows:
$500 flat fee for Self-guided Services*
$215/trip day fee for Standard Services*
$375/trip day fee for Luxury Services*
$25/ticket fee for all airline changes/cancellations*

Travel Services Comparison
*IMPORTANT: The exceptions to this pricing are any trips booked via my Iceland Travel Affiliate partnership or via my host agency, Cruises and Tours, Unlimited. If bookings are made via the host agency or Iceland Travel Affiliate, I will charge my initial $125 fee and the remainder of all fees will be paid according to their policies and will be completed directly on their payment platforms.
*For Self-Guided Services the $125 planning fee is applied to the overall $500 flat fee.
The Next Steps
When we all agree and you’ve paid your deposit, I get into the fine details that really make the trip.
I’ll arrange all of your flights, luxury transfers and begin booking exactly the kind of accommodations you’ve always dreamed of. Then I get into my personal favorite part—eating and drinking! I will recommend and/or book your meals and any other additional activities you choose.
I’ll arrange all of your transfers from the airport onward and begin booking your accommodations. I will book one restaurant/wine bar per day and one event/outing. Next I will recommend other food and beverage options. Then I will book any other additional activities you choose.
I’ll recommend methods of transfer for you, starting with airport pickup and everything else along the way.Then I’ll recommend accommodations, food and beverage options and any other additional activities you can think of. You will do the rest yourself, you savvy traveler, you!
I will send you only accommodations with availability for your dates of travel, so it’s very important that you’ve already booked your flight dates.
Air travel is included in my bespoke luxury offer only.
It is available as an add-on for all other levels of travel for $50/ticket and $25/ticket to change/modify bookings.
