For multi day experiences our standard deposit is 25% of the total experience cost. For day experiences we offer free cancellation up to 14 days prior to experience start date therefore a deposit is not necessary, however you may feel you want to obtain a financial commitment from your customer and therefore we suggest an amount of £10 per person. From time to time we may offer promotional deposits, details of these along with terms and conditions can be found on our website.

If I want to just get an idea of availability should I submit an official request via the website?

Only submit a ‘check availability’ request via our website if you know your customer wants to go ahead and book should that request come back available.   Once a request has been made, should the host confirm availability, the booking is then confirmed and you/customer will be liable for payment. If you simply want to get an idea of availability, please give us a call or use our online chat facility and our team will do their best to help.

Do NITGB overseas multi day experiences include flights?

We do not include flights with any of our experiences. This allows you and your customer to tailor make their trip centred around one of our longer itineraries or simply adding day experiences to an existing package. Should you wish to package one of our experiential trips with flights and do not have the ability to dynamically package or have an ATOL, we work with a number of tour operators including Travelpack who will happily add flights to any of our experiences.

Can I use images from the NITGB website or Facebook page to use on my own social media pages?

Yes you are welcome to use any of our product images on our website providing you directly promoting Not in the Guidebooks experiences.  Images should not be used for general purpose. If you are unsure please email and we'll be happy to clarify.

Are all NITGB experiences ‘on request’?

As we work with local hosts, in most cases we need to check with them that they can accommodate your customers availability request.  This can take up to 48 hours however our hosts are very responsive and often come back to us within 24 hours. We do have a number of experiences on the website however that have live availability and are able to be booked immediately.  The easiest way to identify whether something is on request is if it has a pink button saying ‘check availability’.    If you are able to book immediately the pink button will say ‘book now’.
