Early Bird bookings are the way to go!


Holidays with a shorter duration are often booked spontaneously but...

"Anticipation is the greatest pleasure!"


It basically means that planning a holiday can make you happy even before the trip has begun…

so why not expand your anticipatory joy by booking as early as possible!





Here are some more great reasons for booking your tour early


  • Secure your space on the tour you would love to go on and lock in your preferred date. Our 2022/23 dates are already selling fast, so if you've got a particular date in mind or are interested in a single room upgrade, bear in mind options might be limited if you leave it too late. Single rooms are often only available in limited numbers, so we highly recommend early reservations.

  • Take advantage of low airfares, which 'Early Birds' can often secure. We recommend 'flexirefund' fares, which are fully refundable before you travel and have no change fees.

  • Safe yourself from the disappointment of your desired tour being no longer an option.


And you may never have considered these...

  • Each of our tours requires a minimum number of participants. Early bookings allow us to guarantee a trip earlier.

  • Our borders are open again, and many accommodation providers are experiencing very high demand. And why should they keep rooms on hold when they can get firm bookings from international travellers? It means we have to confirm or otherwise return reserved quotas, whether for accommodation, Ebikes or exclusive reservations for a walking track - sometimes as early as 60 days before the tour date.

  • Ebikes are becoming increasingly popular, and demand often exceeds supply - especially in high season. Booking early helps us ensure there will be enough Ebikes available.

  • Many Great Walks have only very limited spaces available. Therefore, private walks such as Banks Peninsula Track, Kaikoura Coastal Track and Island Hills Station Track are also much more in demand and book up quickly.


One of the best things about booking a Sidetracks Women tour early is that you don't need to worry if things change.


Our low-risk booking policy means you can change to a different tour date or a different tour, up to 31 days before your tour starts, for a small handling fee of $100.



With all these great reasons to book early, why not get in touch with us now?


We look forward to helping you make your next adventure become a reality!
