Who will you interact with? Route plans will be made available on email. You can call up H V Kumar 24x7 to discuss & customise your route & drive plans. Based on your route &drive plan, hotels will be identified, but all bookings will be made on the move, based on your actual drive speeds and ETAs. Actual room bookings will be made by our HVK Forum HiVayKing Club Central Hotel Book Desk.
How will I get hotel rooms? Hotel rooms are arranged on the spot. No, hotel names are not disclosed to you before booing is made & confirmed. However, you will be given indicative costs, if you wish, prior to booking/ confirmaion.
Will we guarantee you rooms? Drives to Ladakh are plagued with uncertainty due to road conditions, natural problems (like landslides, road closures, etc), your own inability to reach a destination on time & time overruns. Based on your route & drive plan, we would have already “block-booked” the rooms in the Ladakh circuit, and barring unforeseen circumstances, there is a reasonable assurance that your room will be available without any problem in the pre-identified hotel & we undertake to get you a room elsewhere in case it isn’t
Why should you go with us? When you Travel, We Travel with you – that is the mission in the HVK Forum HiVayKing Club. We customise your drive. Take away the load of looking for & booking hotels in advance. Assure you a hotel room anywhere on your route, a hotel which is reviewed by members in this Forum. You get the good discounts that HVKans enjoy with the hotels, low rates which no travel agent or online booking site can match – because we give away good discounts to our members. In most cases, you do not pay advances which will be jeopardised if your drive plan changes or you get delayed in transit (which is usual).
