HOW TO BOOK: Wherever your destination, to book, please contact me first to discuss your proposed trip and to confirm your preferred dates are available. I can then reserve dates for you provisionally. To confirm your booking I will request a 25% deposit and a completed booking form. Payment is ideally by transfer to my account by on line banking or in your branch, and signed booking forms may be posted or emailed to me.
I am always happy to advise, assist and help arrange your trip. If I am already booked and can’t guide you personally, or if you have a larger group requiring more than one guide, I can select and book additional guides for you. I can also make other arrangements for you such as booking your accommodation and arranging equipment that you might not own yourself, for example boots, ice axe and crampons if required. (For full details on the gear you will need please see the download below that is appropriate to your trip.)
Robin’s daily rates are:
UK – from £190 /day
Alpine – from £300 /day
Robin usually works with small group sizes, and he does not charge extra for more people. You split his fee and expenses between the party members. (Details of any additional expenses to expect can be found in the appropriate download below.)
Accommodation can be arranged with all levels catered for from camping and caravans to 5* hotels – this is your holiday, spend it how you want!
Insurance is essential in the Alps, and you must take out specialist cover appropriate to our activities. Wherever you are travelling to, I recommend you have appropriate insurance, including cover against cancellation.
There are several insurance providers that specialise in the activities I offer, including:
