Countdown to Departure

10 - Sign and send your Booking Form…

If you find a blank booking form with this packet, it means we still have not received critical information from you. Please complete the form, sign it and send it back to The Newport office as soon as possible. See our fax and email info below. If you did not receive such a form, there is nothing you need to do now. Approximately six weeks before departure we will contact you to request your pre- and post-walk travel and contact information.


9 - Passport and Documentation…

Your passport must be valid for six months from your return date. Print and organize copies of your passports, tickets, pre-walk and post-walk hotel reservations, travel insurance, emergency phone and card numbers. Leave a set with family or friends too.


8 - Read up on your trip…

Your travel documents have all the information you need on the meeting points, the week’s schedule and the hotels you will be staying in.



7 - Get healthy…

The Wayfarers walks are rated numerically from one to five, from easy to energetic. Each rating is based on a combination of the type of terrain, distance, time and elevation gain. An exercise routine will help you get ready to enjoy your walking vacation.


6 - Check your ATM and Credit Cards…

Call your banks to make sure they know you will be traveling. It’s best to take a combination of money – credit card, debit card and local currency.



5 - Get snap happy…

Think of all things camera; make sure you have extra batteries, enough memory and please share your snap shots with us. Check out what’s happening on the trails now:

4 - Packing 101…

Always pack as light as possible but make sure you squeeze in clothing for all weather conditions. This should include waterproof jacket and pants, as well as your waterproof hiking books with ankle support (well-worn and broken in) to keep you dry during the wettest afternoon or damp, dewy morning. And remember plenty of socks – clean dry socks are a welcome treat for tired feet!


3 - Stay up to date on the weather…

We recommend checking www.accuweather.com leading up to your departure. Having the right clothing will make your trip much more enjoyable and comfortable.



2 - Keep The Wayfarers’ Emergency Phone Number Handy…

The Wayfarers 24/7 UK emergency contact numbers are 1-401-234-2424 (US) and + 44 (0) 1600 3200 03 (Europe). It is never too soon to write it down and keep it with you. If you are bringing a cell phone on your trip, add The Wayfarers and this number to your contacts. If not, keep this number where you keep your passport and other important documents.
