Q: When did VoyEdge RX start?
A: We launched in September 2016.
Q: How did VoyEdge RX start? And what are your credentials?
VoyEdge RX started back in 2016 after our CEO came back after years of traveling and working in Europe. He and several of his former co-workers in Italy used to run 3-day and10-day tours for study abroad students to locations like; Croatia, Hungary, Slovenia, Italy, France, Spain, Greece, Germany, the Czech Republic, Belgium, Ireland, and more. Combined with his experience as an athlete, he and several other close friends sought to create a company solely focused on fitness, adventure, and living life outside of the comfort zone. Thus, VoyEdge RX was born.
Q: What does VoyEdge RX mean? And where does it come from?
A: The word ‘Voy’ in Spanish means, ‘to go.’ Edge refers to the ‘edge of your comfort zone’, and RX means, ‘as prescribed.’ All together, it means - “You go to the edge as prescribed,’ which is what our brand, mission, and team stand for.

SIGNING UP FOR A TRIP
Q: Do I have to do CrossFit to sign up for a trip/is there a fitness level requirement?
A: NO! You do not need to do CrossFit to sign up for a trip, and there is no fitness level requirement. We will offer gym drop-ins, travel workouts, hikes, yoga, etc. almost every day on your tour, but it is all OPTIONAL!
Q: I love the itinerary, but there are 1 or 2 activities I am not interested in. Am I obligated to participate in everything?
A: No, you are not obligated to participate in anything you do not want to do. However, please understand that anything listed in the “what’s included” section of an itinerary is included in the price.
Q: Are flights included?
A: We do not include RT flights in our prices. If you would like us to purchase your flight for you, we can absolutely do that for a small fee, and add the total cost of the flight to your invoice so you may pay it off over time.
Q: Will we have a more detailed itinerary after we sign up?
A: Yes! You will receive a more detailed hour-by-hour itinerary a few days before departure. And you will receive monthly trip updates from our team to everyone going on the tour.
Q: How much is it to reserve my spot?
A: For all of our trips (except Africa) we require a non-refundable deposit of $300 to save your spot, which goes towards the total cost of your trip. After that, our team will send you an invoice for the remaining balance with monthly payment breakdowns. You have until 90 days before the tour to pay off the balance.

Q: What is tiered pricing?
A: Tiered pricing is our scaling system for pricing trips. Basically, the earlier you sign-up for a tour, the less you pay. Generally, for every 5 people who book a trip, the price goes up about $50 or $100.
Q: I have a group who wants to sign-up! What should we do?
A: Email us at: email@example.com FIRST! We will then give you a corresponding code that is good for 48 hours only. You must have all the members of your party sign-up with those 48 hours to receive the full discount on all your invoices.
Q: How many people usually go on the trips?
A: VoyEdge RX runs trips from 10 - 30 people. Usually, it is around 15-20 per tour.
Q: How do I see who else is going on this trip?

Q: Ok, I signed-up! What happens next?
A: After you’ve placed your $300 deposit, you will receive an order confirmation and our team will move quickly to process your order and send your welcome package (full of swag & a shirt). You will also receive an invoice with all of the relevant information about this trip, including groups to RSVP to and more. Keep an eye out for monthly trip updates after that!
Q: What happens if I can’t go?

on the trip
Q: Will someone be picking me up from the airport upon arrival, or do I have to find my own way to the hotel?
A: At least one VoyEdgeRX guide will be there to pick you up at the airport upon arrival. You will find out your meeting place when your detailed hour-by-hour itinerary is sent out before departure.
Q: What kind of accommodations do you stay at?
A: For the majority of our trips, we stay in at least three-star accommodations. We often stay in apartments through Europe, or at AirBnB’s for some nights in more remote destinations. Regardless, all of our accommodations are generally based on double-occupancy rooms where we place people together by similar age and gender.
Q: Will my spouse/friend/group I signed up with automatically be placed together in our accommodations on the trip?
A: Yes! We will place you in rooms with those you signed up with.
Q: I’m a solo traveler. Can I have private accommodations?
A: Private accommodations come at an extra cost of $150 per night and can be added to your invoice. Please understand that private accommodations may not be available for every night of every trip. You will be notified of how many nights of private accommodations are available before the cost is added to your invoice. If they are not available every night, you will only be charged for the number of nights they are available.
Q: I hate tracking and booking flights. Can you book my airfare for me?
A: Yes! If you would like, VoyEdgeRX will book your flight for you for an added fee and will apply it to your invoice so you have more time and flexibility to pay off the balance.
Q: Am I required to purchase travel insurance?
A: For most trips, you are not required to have travel insurance. We do highly encourage you to purchase it though for any international trip. Accidents can happen anywhere at any time, and it is better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it. Travel insurance is required for some trips such as South Africa. If it is a required purchase for your tour, you will be notified either through your detailed itinerary or the monthly trip updates.
Q: Do you release the photos you take on the trip?
A: Yes, all photos from the tour will be released within a few weeks after the trip has ended. These are included in the price of the tour! We also produce a video from the tour which will go on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
Q: What’s the latest date I can sign up for a trip?
A: Each trip has a date listed at the bottom of the trip page with the closing date for bookings. In general, bookings will close about 3 months prior to trip start date, unless they sell out before then.
Q: Are meals included?
A: Some meals are included in the price of the trip. Generally, most breakfasts and some dinners are included in the price, but it varies by trip. See each of the trip pages for more information on what’s included and not included.
Q: Can I do laundry on the trip?
A: Yes, we try to include laundry stops during the trip for our customers.
Q: Who leads the tours?
A: Our staff leads the tours, but when it comes to historic areas & adventurous activities, we use tour providers and various guides to get the best experience in a certain location.
Q: What happens at the end of the trip?
A: At the end of the trip we give you a huge hug goodbye and help you get to the airport swiftly and safely. We then produce the media from the trip and send out a trip feedback form to garner feedback to improve and prepare on for the next time around.
