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, 2019.
You must have a valid passport that will NOT be within 6 months of expiration as of June 1, 2019. If so, we do not recommend booking with us until you passport is properly renewed. This is by the request of the government of Morocco.
U.S. citizens should be aware that countries can deny foreigners entry if they have been charged or convicted of a serious crime. For more information on entry requirements review the information on www.travel.state.gov or contact the consulate for the destinations you’re traveling to.
It is the traveler's responsibility to provide the correct documents and failure to do so may result in being denied boarding for the flight. Regrettably, we are unable to refund unused flights, hotel, or add-ons because of denied boarding situations.
If you have a non USA passport please check with Consulate for visa requirements: http://www.moroccanconsulate.com/visa.cfm
Exploring Chefchaouen, Marakkech and more on our tours will involve a lot of walking on unpaved and 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 BEFORE you book. Morocco 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 Morocco 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 North Africa, we strongly advise that you take time to research the region, your travel path and more so you can navigate to Morocco 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!
Unlike previous trips, this #TravelFly Solo trip is a combination self and concierge-guided experience. While we have included a host of group excursions and two dinners, this is not a traditional group trip in which you are expected to attend all activities. If you wish, you can opt out of any of the tours and activities and plan your own adventure. Outside of PARLOUR planned activities, you are responsible for reserving, booking and transportation to and from any tours, excursions, meals and such that are not included in the itinerary.
The #TravelFly Solo trip is designed to cater to every style. Some will want to party non-stop. Some want to pool 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 both Christianity and Judaism is present, Morocco is a Muslim country. With that, there is an expectation of modern modesty concerning dress once you are outside of our hotels, and the public consumption of alcohol is largely forbidden outside of hotels, select restaurants and private homes/riads. We expect all travelers to adhere to local customs concerning dress and decorum. Confirmed travelers will receive a full guide on what to wear and pack!
Additionally, the respect of Islamic culture and tradition is mandatory while on the excursion. Absolutely no displays of rudeness, disrespect or disregard will be tolerated during any of our activities and offending guests will be asked to return to the hotel or coach with no refunds issued.
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 and welcome to women of color of all ethnicities.
frequently asked questions
Can I come by myself?
Absolutely! We encourage it. Solo travelers can book either solo occupancy accomodations or choose to be paired with another solo traveler and be Double Occupancy roommates.
Can I bring my friend?
Yes! Once you and your girl are ready, be sure to select Double Occupancy and name eachother in your reservation.
I paid my deposit, am I booked?
With the exception of travelers who want to be paired, yes! If you are planning to come with a friend we do NOT recommend paying your deposit until your friend is also ready to pay within 48 hours as your deposit is non-refundable after that time period.
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 your hotels through our travel team. Short answer: no.
Should I book my flight on my own?
Yes! 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 full quote?
We require up to two (2) business days to review your reservation details and acquire the answers to questions you may have need. 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 at the same time.
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, desert and goodbye dinner, the experience is completely based on what you desire! Trip updates, the #TravelFly Solo Digital Guide to Morocco and discounts will be sent to confirmed travelers directly via email from PARLOUR.
