How do we source our prices:

  1. Balkan Vagabondz receives a client request.
  2. The BV coordinator then reaches out to all the guides and guiding companies in the network to gather information on possible itineraries, availability and prices.
  3. Once we have all the options we send them to the client so he/she can select the best price, date and itinerary.

Please note negotiating prices is not always possible.

Essentially we are a price, availability and itinerary comparison site that helps people meet their adventure needs and save time along with providing extra customer service and consultation on top of the services you receive. All of this is free of charge as commission is taken from the suppliers.
