RPR Posted August 31, 2006 Share Posted August 31, 2006 First, I want to be clear that I am asking this to get some initial ideas for a potential busines venture. I am not selling anything, but if doing research that might later be used for a business contravenes the forum rules, the mods may most certainly delete this without the least offense My questions are about how interested people would be, their general opinions of, and what they might think are reasonable prices for a Land Rover (content) based expedition/holiday venture? For guidance purposes, the very nascent concept would be a relatively small, relaxed B&B type accommodation (maybe lodges) with beach access in Spain or Portgual. On offer would be local fly and drive packages: Land Rovers provided and self drive or guided offroading locally as well as eventually running expeditions to Morocco/NA from the B&B offering either a fly and drive or a self drive with the B&B as the rally/shakedown/outfitting point. Ideally, the B&B side would offer additional options such as horse riding, biking, fishing etc. Imagine two packages: Local Package. You and your party (family or friends) fly into destination airport, are picked up and taken to the "Lodge". Options are B&B with pool, activities (see above), beach access (let's suppose up to 25 minute drive to beach for arguments sake provided by jitney) and local slef drive or guided offroading. North Africa Expedition. Either as per above (with the option of family enjoying beach holiday at Lodge while you do the expedition) using supplied Land Rovers, or you get your Land Rover down to Lodge (assuming we book ferry tickets and provide advice on route and reccommended accommodation en route) with a 7 - 10 day guided expedition to say Morocco. Knowing the innate frugality of our group, I would imagine there will be some fairly low-ball estimates, but A) would you be interested? B) what would you expect to pay for these admittedly somewhat undetailed "packages", and; C) any suggestions you have to expand/improve the concept? Looking forward to your views (if this were PBB, there would be a double flip-off here.... ) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
