The "Stage of Planning" Guide

Investigating:
You can call this a "theoretical" trip idea, as it is not a solid plan, but being stongly considered. The dates, itinerary and pricing could see some major changes before going into the next phase if they are to happen. If a trip in this stage would interest you, please send an email, as the more interest it gets, the more likely it would be pushed into the next phase.

Planning:
These trips are pretty well set to happen, and would only see some minor changes based upon adjustments to the itinerary based upon circumstances of the time for this trip such as operating hours, special events and other circumstances. The prices listed here are typically going to be the best as this will be right before booking, when deals are still being looked for to help bring down costs, and adding more participants can help lower the cost from potential discounts or additional people to share the costs. If a trip in this stage interests you, this would be the best time to join as this will be the most likely time to get the best pricing for the trip.

Booking:
This trip is set to go, and we are currently in the booking process with hotels and transportation, as well as purchasing attraction tickets. Those who had contacted CwC during the previous stages about joining trips in this stage would have already made a deposit and payment arrangements to secure their spot at the quoted price. Anyone who is interested can still join when the trip is in this stage, and there is a good chance you will still get in on the quoted price as you would be booked at the same time as others. 

Booked:
This trip is 100% going to happen, and the plans are pretty well set in stone (save for some last minute adjustments due to operational changes, weather conditions, etc...). If you are interested in joining trips in this stage, we certainly welcome others to join, but please be aware that the cost will likely be higher than the original quotes due to later booking, which may require additional costs for changes or normal price fluctuations ​ that occur with the travel industry when making reservations clsoer to the day of travel
