Our Process | Fauna Travel

Our Process


If you choose our travel planning services, we want the process to be as simple and satisfying as possible. We think holistically and your travel experience and are there to help at each step along the way.

1. Initial Consultation

Let’s do a quick complimentary call to get an idea of what you want to do. We get to know you and discuss where you want to go, with whom, and when, but also: Why are you going? What do you want to feel? From this, we can start outlining an itinerary that will inspire you.

2. Crafting Your Itinerary

To prepare an itinerary we charge a minimum $250 planning fee for our time. Pricing varies for longer and more complex trips. Read more about our pricing. To start, we prepare a few draft itineraries to choose from based on your preferences. After getting your feedback we incrementally refine your trip into the ideal itinerary. We’ll do as many revisions as needed to get it right.

3. Booking Your Trip

After you have confirmed the quote for your itinerary. We take secure payments for hotels, ground transportation, and activities. Payments can be made by either credit card or wire transfer. Travel insurance is more important than ever, so we can discuss options at this point as well.

4. Getting Ready

Packing and preparation are half the fun if you do it right. We provide books, curated playlists, and destination information as an appetizer to your travels. Custom itinerary materials will also be delivered at this time.

5. En Route

We don’t forget about you once you’re on your way. We can help smooth over the unexpected bumps in the road. We also hope to have peppered your trip with surprising, delightful, and profound moments. 

6. Coming Home

Welcome back! We’d love to know how it went, so we can continue to improve our services. If you’re a happy customer we can talk about planning your next adventure. We can also publish your digital itinerary as a blog post to share with friends and family upon your return.
