While we don’t believe in applications to travel, we do request detailed information from you on our reservation form to make sure that we have enough information about you so that we may design an experience that caters to what you are looking for. But first, you must meet all of the criteria in order to be confirmed for the experience:
You must be, or wholly and authentically identify as a woman in order to attend the Travel Fly Solo Weekend.
You must be over the age of 21 by June 1, 2018.
You must have a valid passport that will NOT be within 6 months of expiration as of June 1, 2018. If so, we do not recommend booking with us until you passport is properly renewed. This is by the request of the government of Greece.
In Mykonos and its neighboring islands, many tours and excursions—and even everyday walks to the beach, etc—will involve a lot of walking on elevated, inclined ground due to the natural geography of the locale. If you think you will not be able to move freely, or are restricted by disability please contact us so that we may make arrangements to the best of our ability. Greece does not have an ADA regulations like the United States, therefore services may be limited and costs may apply. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Depending on where you are flying from, getting to Mykonos will involve at least 1 connecting flight and potentially an overnight journey. Plan accordingly and consider walking times from terminals, the chance of flight delays and more when planning with the Travel By Design team or booking your own flight.
This experience has been designed for seasoned travelers. If you have never traveled to, or through Europe, we strongly advise that you take time to research the region, your travel path and more so you can navigate to Mykonos safely and enjoy your time there. There should be no expectation of English to be spoken outside of tourist heavy locales such as airports, hotels, and popular restaurants and tours so preparation is key!
The #TravelFly Solo trip is a self-guided experience. While we are planning a few optional group excursions, this is not a traditional group trip where the majority of your day has been planned with activities. Outside of PARLOUR planned activities, you are responsible for reserving, booking and transportation to and from any tours, excursions, meals and such unless specified by PARLOUR.
The #TravelFly Solo trip is designed to cater to every style. Some will want to party non-stop. Some want to beach and chill...all day. Some want a bit of both. With that, we allow our travelers to build their own experience and ask that you be open to and respectful of this before agreeing to attend.
Though much of the experience, offers, products and programming that we have will cater to Black women from all over the African Diaspora, this experience is open to all women.
frequently asked questions
Can I book my hotel on my own?
In order to be considered a confirmed traveler and receive discounts and offers from PARLOUR and participate in our events, you must book through our travel team.
Can I book my flight on my own?
Absolutely! Travel By Design will take care of your hotel reservation and make a note of your arrival and departure time for your airport transfer.
If I am in the region at that time, or book my own arrangements can I come to your events?
Our official events, gifts and other experiences are exclusively for our confirmed travelers. Say hi should you be in the area, but all official PARLOUR events are closed to non Travel Fly Solo guests.
How long will to take to receive a quote?
We require up to two (2) business days to review and generate pricing against your reservation request. Quotes may be delayed due to incorrectly or incompletely filled out reservation forms, such as if you request a roommate by name, but that person has not submitted their reservation request. If you have a roommate in mind, it is important that you both submit your requests.
Can I upgrade my room?
Yes! Please inquire if you want to book a suite, etc.
What if I need to arrive later, leave earlier, etc?
We have arranged it so you can tailor your stay to your liking, including when you and when you leave. Our hotel discount may change for shorter or longer stays, specify that via the reservations form.
What will we be doing when we get there?
We are creating an exclusive guide for all of our #TravelFly Solo guests that will allow you to self-create your daily itinerary. Outside of our cocktail hour, day sail, beach day and goodbye dinner, the experience is completely based on what you desire! Trip updates, the #TravelFly Solo Digital Guide to Mykonos and discounts will be sent to confirmed travelers directly via email from PARLOUR.
