Evaneos is an award-winning platform connecting you with the best local travel agencies around the world to create authentic, tailor-made tours. By cutting straight to the local experts, we give you access to unparalleled local knowledge, 24/7 on-the-ground assistance, and local prices with no mark-up. Since 2009, over 300,000 travellers have set off on a tour via Evaneos, and our 96% traveller satisfaction rate reflects the quality of the local agencies we work with. Our local partners cater to every interest and style, so whether you’re a couple, family, group, or solo traveller, Evaneos’ local experts are waiting to create your perfect trip.
Local expertise and 24/7 support
Evaneos has rigorous selection criteria for the travel agencies it works with and an in-house team is dedicated to sourcing and vetting each and every agency. Our local partners are all fully licenced, English-speaking professionals who are passionate about helping travellers explore the destination they call home. Being locally-based, they’re available 24/7 on-the-ground while you travel and can advise you on everything from how to avoid tourist traps to where you can find hidden gems that only locals know about.
Tailor-made travel at local prices
Like any tailor-made tour, with Evaneos you have the freedom to customise everything in your itinerary to suit your travel style, interests, and budget: accommodation, duration, activities, transport, and guide or driver accompaniment. The difference? You won’t pay a hefty middle-man fee. Evaneos takes its commission from the local agencies it works with, not its travellers, so you’ll pay the same amount regardless of having gone through the Evaneos platform, while benefiting from guarantees like secure online payment in GBP.
Guarantees for safety and security
As the pioneer of the direct-to-local platform in the travel industry, we know how important it is for travellers to feel secure and supported from A to Z. Think of Evaneos as your safety net, providing you with that all-important peace of mind allowing you to set off on your trip worry-free. We’re an ABTA member and have been operating for ten years, so you can book your locally-made trip with confidence.
A fairer deal for everyone
Today, many destinations depend on revenue generated by tourism. Did you know that for every £100 you spend booking a trip through a traditional tour operator, only between £10 and £40 stays in the destination? Through Evaneos' straight-to-local model, that number is £73, meaning that local economies are able to retain more income while providing you with a unique, personalised travel experience through their extensive network of local suppliers.
