What is Wonderful World?
Wonderful World is a travel platform started in 2013, that designs and executes holidays for Women within India and abroad.We create journeys and memories for people with a thirst for something new.With us, every trip is an intimate, unforgettable experience personalized for you and a small group of like-minded travellers.
Where is Wonderful World based?
We believe that the entire beautiful world is our base (: but we operate out of Delhi and Bangalore. You are welcome to drop in anytime!
What are the group sizes you operate with?
We want to make sure you have a balance of good company, of like-minded travellers as well a healthy dose of much needed “me-time”, hence we deal with relatively intimate group sizes that range from 8 - 12 ladies (maximum).
Does someone from your end accompany the groups?
Yes, there is always someone from our side who accompanies the groups so that your journey is comfortable, safe and well organised. This person is there to take care of you, handle the logistics, etc so all you have left to do is enjoy your trip! Also, at each location, we hire good local guides to further accompany the groups so we get maximum utilisation of your time.
What is the profile of the women travelling?
Anybody who has wanderlust in their soul and a taste foradventure fits our profile. Women across a wide age span as well as varied backgrounds choose totravel with us. They are usually in their 30s to 60s and sometimes even 70s! Age is just a number. These women come from all over India as well as outside, such as Dubai and Singapore. Everyone is a welcome to be a part of our journey.
Do you have solo travelers or does everyone come with someone?
We have had several solo travellers’ who join us without knowing anyone beforehand on the trip. We believe that everyone is unique and we will help you the achieve the kind of experience you are looking for – whether that is as an individual or in accompaniment of friends, family or acquaintances. Rooms are on a twin sharing basis (unless you have specifically asked for and booked a single room). Our trip travellers are accommodated in twin rooms randomly.
Do you allow children on a trip?
We have curated some Mother & Child trips - where children are more than welcome! Otherwise, on our normal trips we review this on a case-to-case basis as we take into consideration each and every travellers request. We will always try to accommodate everyone’s needs. It also depends on the kind of trip, age of child, etc. We give special attention to single mothers – so if you’re a single mother and need to bring your child on a trip, please feel free to call us and discuss it.
How safe are these trips?
One of the main reasons as to why we started this company was that we understood what holds women back from exploring on their own – a lack of safety and comfort. This insight is what fuels the fire in us to offer women unique travel opportunities that are safe. We personally do the background check for each trip by physically visiting it. We handpick the hotels and meet the transport operators ourselves. Since we make it a point to travel with you and as a group, the trips are extremely secure. Your safety is our priority.
Are flight tickets and Visas included in the cost?
In most cases the flights and Visas are not included in the cost. We do, however, suggest flights you can book and help you do the same via our ticketing agent so that you are assured you are getting the right deal. We also provide complete guidance on how to secure a Visa (free of charge). However, if you would like to have someone apply for you, we can put you in touch with a trustworthy agent who will do the needful.
What is the cancellation policy like?
The cancellation terms vary on a trip-to-trip basis and are clearly listed under each trip detail.Please refer the same for your queries. We are here to help you and guide you through this process if required.
What kind of accommodation do we get to stay at?
We do intensive research on the accommodations organised for every trip. We put in a lot of effort in selecting the right hotel at the right destination - we believe that you only visit a city for a few days and the location is a key factor in the experience. We handpick each hotel – these are usually highly recommended 3-star, 4-star or boutique hotels. Apart from this, when it comes to rural locations, we arrange for the stay in authentic regional homestays which adds an important element to the whole rustic experience!
How do we join a trip / how do we go about the payment?
All you have to do is make the decision to say YES! Then we will do our best to make your journey from now till the end as smooth as possible. We will request for a booking deposit from you to confirm your spot in the trip and then the complete payment is only due at a later stage closer to departure date (these dates are listed on the trip page, kindly refer them). About a month before the trip we will introduce you to your co-travellers,share some essential information about the trip as well. You can make the payment on the specified date through:
- Online payment via a secure payment gateway
- NEFT transfer
- Cash or cheque into our bank account
What if the dates of the trip don't suit me?
