What is Bucket List Group Travel
Bucket List Group Travel (BLGT) is for solo travelers, friends or couples who like to travel with a group of like-minded and fun-loving people. As the name says, our events are a well-balanced group activity and the tours are planned around 6 major areas of interest that is Hiking, Wildlife, Road Trip, Adventure, Festival, and Cruise.
Are these trips for singles or couples?
Bucket list Group Travel is for everyone! Although most of our trip participants are singles.
How many people are on each trip?
Our groups range in size from 4 to 16 people.
What are the age ranges to attend an event?
We think age is just a number, as long as you are fit enough to perform the activities mentioned in the itinerary anyone 18 and above age group is welcome.
Will people know each other before the trip?
Since members on any trip can sign up from the different locations around the USA you will NOT meet anyone in person. To alleviate this, we create a WhatsApp group for communication before each trip so that you will know virtually whom you are traveling with. It also helps to share info via group messaging.
How do you ensure everyone will get along?
Our group is of like-minded people who love to travel! Just signup an event with an open heart and a positive attitude and we promise you will have a great time.
Is it weird to travel with a bunch of 'strangers'?
Not at all! Within the first few hours of the trip, you get along with so-called ‘strangers’ who will then turn into one of the best travel buddies and friends.
Our organizer makes sure that you interact with each of them on the trip to facilitate a comfortable atmosphere.
Is there a leader on the trips?
YES, every trip will have a group leader and some of the trips will have a guide if the itinerary demands a guided trip.
Is there a deadline to book for a trip?
Yes, there is a deadline for every trip. Since availability is limited per trip (to either 12 or 16 members) the earlier you book the better chances to reserve your spot. Further, you will have a better selection of airfare prices when you book in advance.
Is airfare included?
No, unfortunately airfare is not included in any of our trips. Upon joining a trip we will provide recommended arrival and departure times and recommended airlines for the destination at hand. However there will be few trips where domestic flights may be included if the itinerary demands. These will be clearly marked in the itinerary.
When should I book my flight?
Before booking your local or international flight for any trip, please confirm and co-ordinate with the trip organizer about it.
What is the sleeping situation like?
All trip prices are based on double occupancy rooms. If you enrolled with another person, you’ll room with that person. Otherewise, your roommate will be of the same gender (unless you’re traveling as an opposite-sex couple).
I am travelling solo, do I have to pay single supplement?
No. All trip prices are based on double occupancy rooms. You will be paired with another solo traveler of the same gender to share the accommodation. If you enrolled with another person, you’ll room with that person. Although single supplement option is available if you prefer a room for yourself. If you are interested in a single room please select the single supplement package while booking.
Is travel insurance required?
Yes, travel insurance is required. We will advise on purchasing travel insurance once your booking is confirmed.
How do I submit payment?
You can choose to pay a deposit or the full amount. If you pay the full amount, you’re all set. If you decide to only submit the deposit, then you will receive a follow-up invoice to pay within sesignated time frame.
Please note that we never see your credit/debit card information; everything is handled directly through PayPal and Stripe Inc (whom we use to process all our transactions). We accept all major debit and credit cards.
