PRE AND POST TOUR HOTELS
TrekAmerica tours begin and end at designated hotels in our gateway cities (these are the major cities where our trips start and finish).
Our tours usually depart around 7.30am and finish around 5pm, so it's a great idea to book a room at these hotels before and after your trip. Waking up, having a coffee before meeting your group in the hotel lobby is definitely preferential to battling through the morning rush hour! Likewise at the end of the trip it makes sense to book a room where the tour finishes. You can then relax, get organised before checking out the following day.
Our hotels make excellent bases to explore, as well as being right at your trek departure point. The hotels we have chosen are designed to be clean, comfortable, safe and inexpensive. We have negotiated an allocation of rooms in all these hotels and if booking 5 weeks before departure we can guarantee a bed for you. Within 5 weeks we need 24 hours to ensure your bed is available.
Room rates are usually based on a bed in a twin share room as most people prefer to stay with another traveller at an affordable price - it's also a great opportunity to make friends. You can also purchase a full room, either to share with someone else you are booking with or to have a room to yourself.
If you require hotel accommodation for before or after your trip you must book in advance. You can book nights at our pre and post tour hotels either online at time of booking your tour or by calling our Sales team.
- You will need to make your own way to and from the pre and post tour hotels. The hotel names are listed on all the individual tour pages, and you will find full details of the hotels, including the address and how to transfer from the airport in our pre departure 'Trek Tips' document. The Trek Tips will be sent to you with your booking confirmation email and the hotel information will also be detailed in your tour vouchers. You will receive your tour voucher when you have paid you final balance and approximately six weeks before travel, please check these carefully.
- Before meeting your leader in the hotel lobby at 7.30am you will need to make sure you have packed your bags, eaten breakfast and checked out of your room. You will spend a few minutes filling out paperwork and meeting your fellow trekkers before departing the hotel. On Mexico tours, the group will often have breakfast after 7.30am after the group have met.
- Most treks end between 5pm to 6pm on the final day. Some tour activities scheduled for the last day may preclude an earlier arrival at the ending hotel, so you should not book a departure flight that leaves prior to 9pm. You will be responsible for any transport costs if you have to arrive for an earlier flight.
