How the Booking Process Works

Get a quotation: We will tailor make an itinerary & quotation.

  1. Provisional booking: Once a 20% deposit is paid we'll get to work securing your tour arrangements. This normally takes up to 5 working days.
  2. Confirmed booking: Once we have confirmed your booking, you can make your travel arrangements, and begin the countdown! In the unlikely event that we cannot confirm your booking (usually due to accommodation availability issues), you would of course be refunded in full.
  3. Travel: We've taken care of everything, so you can just relax, take on your trail, and most importantly have fun. We're here for any support you may need.
  4. Share: Enter our #MacsMoment contest, plus we will send you a link on your return to let you review your trip online.

Our process is designed to enable most of our holidays to be tailor made on a request basis. This gives you ultimate flexibility to start and finish on any date you like, or add extra nights. Usually we have no problems confirming adventures, but the further in advance you can book, it's always better.

Booking Your Travel

We would always ask that after you make a provisional booking online or with our representatives, you wait until you receive your final confirmation email before booking any travel arrangements (such as flights).

We'll get a confirmation to you within 5 working days (but often much quicker). It can take a little longer for us to confirm trips over 13 days, or if your booking is very far in advance, but we'll always keep you informed, and in the vast majority of cases it will usually it will just take a few days. If you have any questions or need an update on your booking, don't hesitate to contact us.

    Excellent as always! Totally reliable.

    Great trip, but I had to chase travel docs prior to departure. Accom and baggage transfer were good.
  • Mr Jonathan Smith 18/06/2021
    Hi start to finish took all the Organization out of my hands into theirs and all I had to do was turn up. Will definitely use them again and recommend to my friends.
  • Miss Hayley Middleton 18/06/2021
    We were really impressed with the organisation of the trip and when we did come across any issues or problems Macs were always readily available to answer the queries and sort out the problems! Would definitely use them again! Thank you the Macs Team **

    Macs adventure booked us a lovely series of places to stay and were very efficient. The instructions for the walk were really good. In short everything was really stress-free. I cannot recommend them more highly.
  • Mrs Clare Wight 18/06/2021
    Every hotel we were booked in was exceptionally friendly, helpful and clean with close proximity to where we wanted and needed to be. Breakfasts at each were also excellent. All good choices, thanks to Macs knowledge and relationships in the area. The suggested routes were excellent with realistic timescales to complete those walks and good guidance on how tough they would be. Our luggage arrived on time every evening too which was a relief after a long day. Thoroughly enjoyable holiday and we would definitely use Macs Adventure again. Indeed, we're already planning our next trip.

    Everybody we talked to at macs to get the thing set up was extraordinarily helpful and generous with their time. The trip turned out to be very much as advertised, and we really enjoyed ourselves. My only suggestions for improvement are as follows. First, it might be helpful to describe to potential hikers the varied levels of civilization that exist along the trail. Some of it is quite suburban, which might surprise people who assumed they would be in a rural setting all of the time. Second, there is part of the trail that was unavailable due to erosion of the coast. Although it might be possible for some hikers to do that walk, if the tide is extremely low, my sense is that it is basically not going to be available to almost anyone. If that is the case, it would be useful to disclose that in advance.

    Well organised, good hotels used.
  • Mr Stephen Slater 17/06/2021
    I liked the challenge of completing the route. Also doing a reasonably long walk where most of the Macs UK walks are only a few days. The downside of this being routed to go coast to coast was that while parts of it had brilliant scenery passing through national parks, in between were several days of walking through less interesting flat fields. Macs arrange mostly good accommodation choices but were poor providing information. They only provided a map for half the route saying, “we were not able to get the map for the west section in time”, even though the map was easily available online for next day delivery and they’d had weeks to get it. They sent a guidebook that arrived just before I left by which time I’d already purchased one myself to read before going. Some distances on their own notes were off by several km. On other trips, the bag for luggage transfer had to be left by 10:00am and Macs provided them with a list of where to take it. For this trip Macs chose Sherpa Van who required the bag left by 8:30am, which even using the earliest breakfast times at the B&Bs usually meant packing shoes and toiletries before breakfast. Also, they require you to remember to write the next stop on the luggage tag every day, and what happens if you forget?
  • Mr Andrew Wyles 17/06/2021
    What a great holiday walking the West Highland Way. Superbly organised by Macs. We would do it again tomorrow. Only gripe was that would have preferred the excellent book they supplied to have arrived earlier to aid preparation.
  • Mr Mark Anslow 16/06/2021
    Send out paper copies of the accommodation details and both maps covering the walk. Details on "dashboard" also seemed to include details from last years holiday?
  • Anonymous 16/06/2021
    A lovely trail with spectacular scenery in places. All the accommodation was very good and near the trail. Took a wrong turning once coming off Cleeve Hill. Some of the accommodation could do with having lighter duvets on the beds, or a summer duvet in the wardrobe. Luggage was collected promptly at 9am each morning. What we didn’t realise was how tiring it would be having to lug our cases up flights of stairs to our rooms at the end of each day. We were so grateful on a couple of occasions they were taken up for us and left outside our rooms.

    I would recommend and buy from you again. The support the trip organiser gives is great and questions answered quickly. However I don't like your website when selecting a holiday initially. I found the layout of your previous website better and easier to use.
  • Mr John Dawson 15/06/2021
    Loved the IOW coastal path, really great 5 days of walking but would possibly stretch it to 6 or 7 days and limit to a maximum 15 miles per leg. Having said that we loved every step, every minute. The arrangements and itineraries were great and everything worked like clockwork.
  • Mr Brian Stewart 15/06/2021
    Well organised, great communication. Will definitely use again.

    Macs Adventure managed to organise our holiday at very short notice and at some lovely hotels and guest houses. Luggage transfers worked smoothly. Information pack was very useful too.
  • Gail Ashworth 14/06/2021
    Would recommend,excellent support for independent travel
  • Mrs Vicky Harris 14/06/2021
    Easy to book, fabulous trip with excellent accommodation, clear instructions on the route and smooth baggage transfers. Only one bit of negative feedback, the route from the Wall down to Brampton needs changing urgently as the road is too dangerous to walk.
  • Mr James Gibson 14/06/2021
    Just been on Macs Adventures west highland way trip ,was so good and well run that as soon as I was back home I have booked the same again for next year . Just give them some dates and they do all the rest ,and get back to you in few days with everything sorted
  • Andrew Redden 14/06/2021
    Good communication throughout. Well organised bag collection and drop off ( a damaged bag was replaced by the baggage co. the next day). A mixed choice of accomodation, but on the whole an enjoyable experience. Unfortunately Macs can't control the weather.
