All of our trips include accommodations, transportation between cities and a number of activities relevant to the theme of the trip you're joining us on! Most of our hotels also include breakfast, but that varies by destination. We'll also bring a trip Ambassador to guide you through your experience as well as include all kinds of recommendations for every leg of your trip. Welcome to a better way to see the world while learning new skills!
Flights are not included. Need airline assistance? Email us at hi@trovatrip.com and we’ll help get you what you need.
Excursions and tours vary trip to trip. Refer to the trip itinerary to see which activities are included. We’ll send recommendations for optional experiences leading up to the trip as well. Prices vary depending on what you get into, but typically range from $50-$150!
Typically breakfast is included, but it varies trip to trip. You can ask your ambassador for tips on where to eat cheap if you’re on a budget!
TrovaPass is a subscription where you earn credits on a monthly basis that can be applied towards trips. It is not currently available to new subscribers.
A down payment of $299 is due at the time of booking. The down payment is refundable until your spot is confirmed at which time it becomes non-refundable. You will receive an email when your spot is confirmed. The remaining balance will be charged 60 days prior to the trip departure. If you book within 60 days from trip start, the full amount will be due at booking, but still refundable until your spot is confirmed.
When you book your trip, your spot will enter a pending status. In most cases, your spot will be confirmed shortly after booking. In cases where there is limited space or if the trip has not yet achieved the minimum number of bookings required for confirmation, your pending status may last longer. While we should know sooner, you’ll be notified at least 60 days prior to trip start whether or not your spot is confirmed. Your down payment is refundable until your spot is confirmed. We recommend not booking a flight until your spot is confirmed.
We cater to young professionals past the stage of roughing it - that means no hostels and no hotels below 3 stars. We strive to create an experience that’s not only authentic, but also easily accessible and comfortable. All hotel locations are conveniently located near the heart of each major destination, so you can live like a local. Less time in transit means more time doing; save the commute for back home.
No more than 20 travelers on each trip. In order to create a personalized experience, we feel it is important to keep group sizes smaller. Sometimes, less is more!
We try to start and end all trips in a major city with an international airport for your convenience. It’s up to you whether or not you want to continue your adventure after the trip end!
We will send a detailed itinerary with everything you need to know at least 7 days prior to your trip start date including hotel information and where to meet up. You can expect each trip to kick off with a Happy Hour for you to meet everyone after settling into your room. Cheers!
You’ll sleep in twin, double or triple shared accommodations with private bathrooms. Traveling with a friend? Just plug in their name while booking under "Roommate Request" or shoot us an email at hi@trovatrip.com and we’ll ensure you’re roomed together. Uncomfortable with sharing a room? Let us know and we'll give you a quote for a single-occupancy bedroom.
Excellent question! We’ll provide a full itinerary including hotel and transportation details at least 7 days prior to your vacation including all necessary travel information. Accommodations often change depending on the group size, so we like to get the exact itinerary out to you when finalized to avoid confusion.
If you’re leaving the country, you’ll need a valid passport that doesn't expire for at least 6 months from the date you depart on your trip. You may also need a Visa. Unfortunately, we cannot provide Visas or guidance on Visas, so please check with your local consulate. You'll probably also want some spending cash (and card), clothes, a bathing suit, toiletries, and anything else you want to show off on vacay! We'll also send you a packing list leading up to your trip.
Each trip is assigned an Ambassador who will lead your group through the full itinerary. You’ll be introduced to your Ambassador prior to your trip. Feel free to reach out with any questions regarding your upcoming trip or link up on social media!
YES! Don’t feel pressured to find someone to join you on a trip. Part of the Trova experience is traveling with complete strangers so you can meet new and wonderful people from around the world. We purposefully match you with like-minded travelers to make the experience easy.
We purposefully keep schedules light so you don’t feel overwhelmed and have time to explore or relax on your own.
Leading up to your trip, we’ll provide recommendations for optional activities you can partake in. Email us at hi@trovatrip.com if you have activity ideas or recommendations.
Have a love for all things travel? We’re always looking for people who love travel as much as we do. Apply here if you’re interested in leading trips as an Ambassador!
