My Travel Story

My passion for travel and exploring the world has taken me to 64 countries and counting. I am an expert at crafting fantastic itineraries and finding the most stunning accommodations. From small to large groups, budget travel to luxury travel, single locations to multi-country adventures - you can count on me to plan the trip you've been dreaming of!

I started my Instagram account @JoshRigoTravel to document my travels, which quickly spread the travel bug to many of my friends and family members. Curious about how I planned such stunning trips, they starting asking me to help them plan their own travels. While the planning process can stress many people out, I have an absolute blast doing it! Soon after returning from their trips, referrals from happy clients led to planning travels for friends of friends and beyond.

Now, I have started "Josh Rigo Travel" to help YOU plan your next trip. We all want to stay in the best places at the most fantastic locations, but who has the time to search through the endless options that are out there? It can be exhausting!

Let me do all the work for you!

I will search through ALL available accommodations for your selected location and budget. This often means combing through hundreds of listings with the goal of finding you the perfect place! Hotels, AirBnBs, VRBOs - all of the above. I look through EVERY option available and narrow it down based on reviews, price, quality, & overall experience desired.

Why hire Josh as your Travel Planner?

As an avid traveler myself, I know the ins and outs of planning the perfect trip. I have been to 64 countries, so chances are that I have been to a place you might be thinking of visiting! Not only have I planned all of my own trips, but I now enjoy planning unforgettable adventures for clients. You can rest easy knowing you are in the hands of a travel expert!

What's the difference between Josh and a Travel Agent?

As an individual travel planner (not part of an agency), I have no allegiance to any companies or partnerships. My one and only goal is making sure your itinerary is perfect for YOU! Fully customizable and tailored to your specific needs and wants.

 

What does the process look like?

  1. After I receive your request form, I will email you with an introduction, ask some clarifying questions, and send you a questionnaire. 

  2. Once I receive your questionnaire, I will be able to send you a final estimate.

  3. Once payment is received, I will begin the travel planning process and deliver your package based on the agreed upon timeline. 

  4. You receive your travel package with final suggestions and instructions! 

 

What's included?

Explorer

-Initial Conversation about your Questionnaire answers (via email or phone)

-Destination research and suggestions

-Lodging suggestions and booking instructions

-Itinerary and Suggestions/Instructions delivered via PDF

Traveler

All of the Explorer items, plus:

-Transportation suggestions and booking instructions

Globetrotter

All of the Traveler items, plus:

-30-minute initial video chat about your hopes for your dream trip, decide together on destinations and length of trip

-Custom itinerary and destination suggestions

-30-minute final video chat to explain itinerary and answer any questions 

Tour Guide

After reviewing your answers to questionnaires, I will send you a custom hour-by-hour itinerary for the travel days that you've requested!

What if I want more lodging options after receiving the suggestions provided?

I am happy to provide more options for a “revision” fee. The fee for the first revision 50% of your initial package cost and a second revision is 75% of your initial package cost. Each revision will include another “Top 3” choices based on your feedback of the previous options suggested.

 

Who does the booking?

I will give you suggestions and specific instructions on making your bookings, then you will complete the bookings on your own. This is for many reasons - you are directly contacted from companies when a flight or accommodation is changed, you have all expenses listed on your own bank statements, you are fully covered under travel insurance plans since you made the bookings, and more. Don't worry, I will still be with you every step of the way. This ensures that you have full control and access to the details of your itinerary.

 

What if I want you to also provide tour suggestions, restaurant suggestions, etc.?

I am happy to do that for you! This can be combined with any other package as a custom add-on. Rates will vary based on the length and location of your trip. Just make sure to ask me about it and I will provide you with an estimate. 

 

What if a tour, flight, or accommodation gets cancelled or disrupted during my trip?

Unexpected events happen to all of us. This is one reason why I have clients book on their end, as they will be the first to know of any travel changes in their itinerary and have full control of managing their bookings. Additionally, once you hire me to plan your trip, I am here for you should any unexpected events happen! Just reach out and I will help in any way I can, free of charge. 

 

What if I only need part of my trip planned?

No problem! Just give me the details of what you are looking for and I can make it happen! I can plan your whole trip or just part of your trip, completely up to you.

 

How far in advance should I reach out to you to plan a trip?

The sooner, the better! In terms of accommodations, the best options get booked far in advance. The sooner we plan your trip, the more options you will have! Should you submit an urgent request for a trip that will begin in less than 30 days, package fees are double the amount of what is posted on the website. 

 

Are your travel suggestions really custom?

Yes! I start each trip from scratch and plan an itinerary that is unique to you and your wishes!

Where do you plan trips to?

Anywhere and everywhere! Places I have been to, places I haven't been to, near places, far places... If you can dream it, I can plan it! However, I likely will advise against travel to any places that have a high degree of travel advisories due to safety. 

 

I still have more questions.

Reach out via the contact form! I am happy to answer any and all questions you may have about the process and the packages.

About Me

When not exploring the world, you can often find me doing something related to the arts. I work as an actor, director, aerial dancer, and interior decorator - and I am also a teacher of theatre and circus.

 

My education includes attending a year-long professional circus school program to train in aerial acrobatics, obtaining my undergraduate degree in music, a graduate degree in theatre, and completing an Interior Design certification program. I couldn't narrow down what I wanted to study, so I decided to study it all!

I spent about six years as a school teacher, which enabled me to pursue my passion for travel thanks to those wonderful school breaks. After my Instagram travel page took off, I started planning trips for others and I LOVE it! I look forward to being a part of your travel journey!
