How Our Pricing Works

We aim to be as transparent as possible with our pricing policy and want to make sure you understand what you are paying for and the value you are receiving by working with us. Here’s how our pricing works for our Custom Journeys and Project X Adventures:

  • We work tirelessly to find the best partners in each destination — partners that are aligned with our travel philosophy and that can provide the best services, experiences, activities, guides, and rates for you.

  • After our Call to Adventure with you, we work closely with these partners to handcraft an itinerary designed exclusively for you, taking into consideration your interests, preferences, timeframe, budget, and more.

  • We get a price from our partners for that handcrafted itinerary — a price that compares favorably to what you would find online if you were to take the time to put the whole itinerary together yourself.

  • We add 10% to that price to compensate for our time, travel design expertise, travel mentoring, relationship building, etc.


Save time. Travel stress free. Make a difference.

Traveling with Explorer X is an investment in yourself and in the communities and destinations you visit. By working with us, you are able to:


Save Significant Time

You don’t have to spend hours upon hours scouring travel websites looking for the best deal or the perfect hotel, freeing up more of your time for family, friends, and fun!


Travel Stress Free

When things go sideways while traveling — canceled flights, weather conditions that change plans, etc. — we are there to help you navigate around those challenges stress free.


Plan Stress Free

Avoid the headaches, stress, uncertainty of ‘did I pick the right hotel and/or guide and/or activity/experience,’ and the many hidden costs of working with most online travel agencies.


Make a Difference

By working with local partners in each destination, we ensure that your money stays in those communities, many of whom rely on travel as their main economic driver.
