Trip Styles - choosing the style that suits you:
Our Basix style trips are designed for travellers who want exceptional value, plenty of free time and having the flexibility to choose where and how their time and money is spent. By working plenty of free time into the itineraries and keeping many of the activities optional, we aim to make travel possible for those on even the most slender of budgets. After all, why pay for an activity or excursion you wouldn’t otherwise be interested in? Or a level of comfort you don’t require?
Depending on the region you’re travelling in, Basix trips stay in either shared permanent tents at established campsites – some powered, some not – or in dorm-share accommodation. Sleeping bags are required when camping on Basix trips and some regions also feature the option of sleeping under the stars in a swag (a waterproof canvas bedroll, with a built in mattress).
Classix style trips run at a relaxed pace, include plenty of free time, are built from local know-how and have an off-the-beaten-track vibe. Travellers love them because they’re the opposite of the clichéd big bus group tour: think small, fun and adventurous.
Classix style camping is in shared permanent twin-share tents that feature cosy beds, wooden floors, full linen, lighting, power points, a bedside table and fans. In some places, twin-share hostel/motel rooms are the go. Those travelling solo aren’t charged any extra if they’re happy to room-share with someone of the same gender. For those who’d prefer their own room, single supplements are sometimes available.
Travelling on a Comfort style trip means encountering all that the real world has to offer, but with an added degree of comfort. The travel pace is more relaxed and the accommodation a touch nicer. You will also be treated to more included meals, visits to popular restaurants or eateries, more leader-led activities and get a greater immersion in all things local.
Handpicked comfortable hotels with pivate amenities and often plenty of local character with an emphasis on.
