FAQ

If you have a question, which is not answered on this page, please get in touch.

How do I book my walking holiday?

The best way to make a booking is to complete an EasyWays Enquiry Form and we will be in touch with you by return.

Alternatively, you can email your booking enquiry to info@www.easyways.com or telephone us on +44 (0) 1324 714132. We will be happy to assist with your telephone booking between the hours of 08:30 – 17:00 (Monday to Friday).

How far in advance do I have to book?

We recommend that you book as early as possible to ensure your first choice of dates and accommodation types. This is particularly important during the peak months of May and June when routes are busy and accommodation can be very limited at some stages.

It’s not uncommon for walkers to book holidays on the most popular routes a year in advance.

What if my choice of accommodation isn’t available?

EasyWays will make every attempt to obtain your preferred choice of accommodation. However, in the unlikely event that all accommodation is fully booked, we will contact you with an alternative suggestion (for example a possible change of start date or a variation to the route).

How do I pay for my walk?

You can make payments to EasyWays by Credit or Debit Card using the on-line payment facility under the ‘Book’ tab.

Please note Credit Card payments incur a 2.5% merchant services transaction fee; Debit Card transactions are free of charge. We cannot currently accept payments by American Express or Diners Card.

Can you arrange bag carrying services?

Yes. EasyWays has good long-standing relationships with many of the best bag transfer companies, who we know to be efficient and reliable.

This is an optional service but we think the walks are more enjoyable if you travel light and let someone else carry your bag. It also ensures your gear stays dry in any weather.

What if I have to cancel?

If for any reason you have to cancel your walk before the start date or mid-way through, EasyWays will take care of all cancellations on your behalf.

Please note that cancellation charges will apply. Read our terms and conditions for further details.

EasyWays strongly advises that you purchase travel insurance, to cover you in the event of cancellation, illness, baggage loss, etc.

Can EasyWays help me with a last minute booking?

Sometimes it’s good to be impulsive and if you see that the weather’s just right and decide on a last minute walking holiday, we’ll do all that we can to arrange it for you.

Please note that due to limited availability of accommodation at some stages of the routes, you may not always receive your preferred type of accommodation. But if you’re willing to mix and match on hotels, guest houses and hostels, every effort will be made to make your walk possible.

A suggestion is to start your walk mid-week during busy times. A weekend start is most popular, so starting on a week day may mean that more accommodation is available.

Will towels be provided in my accommodation?

Whether or not you’d like towels to be provided is something to consider when choosing the type of accommodation you want.

All hotels and B&Bs provide towels.

Most hostels and bunkhouses do not provide towels.

If you plan to take your own towel, it’s worth bearing in mind that after using it in the morning, you’ll be packing it into your bag damp and it will obviously still be damp when you reach your destination.

Will an evening meal be provided by my accommodation?

There are very few B&Bs that provide evening meals. Any that do will require you to confirm with them in advance that you wish to dine at the B&B.

Specific information for each accommodation establishment we book on your behalf, will be included in the walk pack we’ll send you prior to your start date.
