Everyone has their own expectations when it comes to the ‘dream’ travel experience. Some people love to take it easy and unwind on a beautiful beach, while others aim to fit in as many exciting experiences and excursions as they can.

It can be tricky to get the trip of your dreams when booking off-the-shelf package holidays. There’s always something missing. And putting together a custom itinerary takes a huge amount of time and research. You can expect plenty of late nights deciphering timetables in Thailand, trying to find English-speaking tour offices in Vietnam and emailing back and forth about excursion prices.

Making tailored trips easy

At Blank Canvas, we believe it doesn’t need to be this difficult to create a bespoke trip that meets your expectations. In fact, it can be as simple as having a chat with one of our expert advisors. We’re proud to have in-depth knowledge of all our destinations, with the connections to book all kinds of wonderful and unusual adventures to enhance your trip.

Our aim is to help our guests really experience a destination, rather than the generic hotel-centric experience on offer with package holidays. We also work closely with host communities, to make sure that tourism benefits rather than harms a destination.

With our help, you’ll enjoy meaningful, eye-opening and unforgettable travel.

So let’s take a quick look at how it all works…

1. Be inspired!

Not quite sure where you want to go, or open to a world’s worth of exciting possibilities? Head to our trip ideas page, where customisable packages and destinations are sorted by theme and accompanied by gorgeous photographs.

Whether you’re inspired by the great outdoors or are looking for a unique honeymoon experience, this is the perfect place to start dreaming.

2. Get in Touch

There are a few easy ways to do this, and you can give as much or as little detail as you like. One of the simplest ways to start chatting with our travel experts is to make an online enquiry here.

Fill in some basics about when you’d like to travel and how long you’d like to go for, plus your budget. If you know where you’d like to go, great! But no worries if not, as that’s what we’re here for.

We also ask about your ideas and requirements for your dream holiday, and make sure you let us know if it’s a special occasion so we can really pull out all the stops!

If you prefer discussing your plans over the phone, give us a call on 0207 112 8586. You can also email on info@blankcanvas.travel.

3. Tailor your itinerary down to the very last detail

Once our travel experts have your requirements, they can make suggestions for destinations and the type of trip you’d like. There are loads to choose from, including safaris and white sand beaches in South Africa and Mauritius, a culture tour of Malaysia or even Namibia by private plane.

You can wine and dine in South Africa, explore Myanmar by bicycle or marvel at the golden temples of Thailand. It’s completely up to you.

If you love an idea, the next step is to personalise your trip. With our help, you can add in virtually anything you like. For example, walking and hiking tours in beautiful nature spots, personal tours of local street art, train rides across magnificent mountain ranges, a day at an unspoilt hidden gem of a beach, and so much more.

We’ll make all the tweaks and changes until you’re 100% happy with the itinerary, and bursting with excitement ready for your trip. It all starts with a quick chat with the Blank Canvas team – so get in touch!
