Our Certified Tahiti Specialists love nothing more than working with you to create thoughtful and inspiring Vacation and Honeymoon itineraries. Below is an overview of the booking process at Venture Tahiti.
Where to Start
Browse for Vacation or Honeymoon Ideas – Select one of our Recommended Vacation or Honeymoon Packages , or choose from dozens of Tahiti Travel Deals and contact us to customize an itinerary just for you. Our Tahiti Specialists will provide you with a firm quote with pricing specific to your chosen travel dates.
Request a Consultation – If you know what you want or need some personalized inspiration, you may contact a Venture Tahiti Specialist to discuss a customized itinerary or bespoke travel package designed specifically to your needs. We will just need a little information to get started.
Talk to An Expert - Please keep in mind that even if you prefer to book your own travel, we would be glad to help you by scheduling a quick and affordable Advisory Session to help you down the path.
After you have customized an itinerary or selected a travel package you are interested and are ready to proceed with a booking, we will just need the following information to confirm your trip:
Full Names – Your first, middle and last names exactly as they appear on your passports along with any suffix title that may appear with the last name (such as Jr. or Sr.);
Dates of Birth – Date of birth for each passenger;
Passport Information – A passport number (or valid identification number) and country or state of issue at the time airfare is purchased.
Contact Information – Your home/ mobile/ work phone numbers and your mailing address. This is the address we will use for the mailing of your Travel Gifts and any correspondence. In most cases, travel documents will be delivered via email;
Emergency Contact – Name and phone number of an emergency contact person;
Special Occasion Information – If this is for a honeymoon or anniversary, please provide us with the wedding date so that we may advise the hotels of the special occasion;
Client Agreement & Credit Card Deposit Authorization – Please return the Venture Destinations Client Agreement and the credit card authorization form
Note:If you already have your passport then please remember that the expiration date must be at least 90 days (180 days is generally recommended for international travel) beyond the planned return date from your trip.
Once your travel reservations have been submitted, you will receive a full Booking Summary with a detailed itinerary and description of the trip we are booking on your behalf. Please check your Booking Summary carefully. Within 1-3 business days, depending on your requested Tahiti Vacation or Tahiti Honeymoon itinerary, you should receive your Tahiti travel confirmations.
Upon receiving your confirmations, we will e-mail you a confirmation letter with your detailed Confirmed Travel Itinerary followed by an invoice. A few weeks after booking your Tahiti Vacation or Honeymoon, you will receive an information package containing resort guides, information on optional activities, spa treatments, excursions, and general Tahiti Travel Information.
Booking with Confidence during the Coronavirus Pandemic
As countries are still adapting to travel during COVID-19, you may need some flexibility with your travel dates. We encourage you to visit our extensive COVID-19 Travel Resources page to understand the latest entry protocols for French Polynesia and learn more about our "Book with Confidence" policy, which includes one FREE date change. With our new, more flexible booking policy, you can plan your future travel with complete peace of mind.
Deposits and Final Payment Procedures
Your Tahiti Specialist, our operations staff, and our agents in Tahiti work very hard to plan and arrange your travel and provide continuing assistance, advice and support. In order to perform these professional services, a non-refundable deposit is required. Your deposit covers fixed expenses and reservation costs associated with planning your trip, arranging confirmations and services with your hotels and tour operators and, if applicable, purchasing non-refundable, international and inter-island airfare. These costs are unrecoverable in the case of a cancelation by any party, which is why they are non-refundable.
If you must postpone or reschedule your trip due to COVID-19, or if your flight is cancelled by the airline, this does not waive the non-refundable nature of your initial deposit. However, as mentioned above, your deposit is fully protected through our “Book with Confidence” policy and 100% of this deposit is applied toward the quoted price of your Vacation or Honeymoon.
Land Only Arrangements – Reservations that do not include international airfare will require a minimum deposit of at least $600 per person (certain luxury resorts will require higher deposits).
Air and Land Arrangements – Non-refundable deposits for clients booking international flights will include the full amount of the airfare included in your travel package. This additional deposit amount will be based on the current International Economy Class or Business Class fares for your specific dates of travel and will be used to purchase your airline tickets.
Travel Insurance – Venture Tahiti strongly recommends that all clients purchase travel insurance. It is recommended that travel insurance is purchased within 14-21 days of booking to get the full coverage options available with the chosen policy. But, insurance can be purchased up until the day prior to departure. Please see the new Entry Requirements for French Polynesia for the most current insurance requirements. If you are still considering whether to purchase travel insurance, our article "Should I Buy Travel Insurance" may be a useful guide.

Deposits will not be processed and airfare will not be purchased unless we have your itinerary confirmed as requested by your selected resorts. The balance of your Tahiti Vacation or Tahiti Honeymoon will be due in full at least 45 days prior to departure (potentially 60 days depending upon certain luxury resort requirements). For bookings within 45 days of departure, full payment will be due within 5 business days of your Tahiti confirmation. For the remainder of any amounts due, clients are free to pay in installments at any time before your final payment due date. Confirmation of your payment will be noted and applied to your client statement.
Note: Your package pricing is based upon forecast foreign currency exchange rates and pricing applicable to your dates of travel and specific to your final payment due date. Should you need to postpone or reschedule your trip, we are glad to assist. However, your package pricing may need to be recalculated based upon your new travel dates and payment schedule.
Personal Check or Wire Transfer – Venture Tahiti is a division of Venture Destinations. Check payments must be in U.S Funds and should be made payable to ‘Venture Destinations’ and mailed to our office at 102 NE 2nd Street, Suite 508, Boca Raton, FL 33432. Please contact us for wiring instructions if you would prefer to make a bank transfer.
Credit Card Payments – If paying the final payment by credit card, please contact us for a credit card authorization form. We will send you an electronic document to sign online.
Terms & Conditions
We encourage you to review our full Terms & Conditions for more information. Please feel free to ask your Travel Specialist should any questions arise.
We are often asked about the cost of food in Bora Bora and Tahiti. Food tends to be a bit expensive in French Polynesia. It is on par with dining out in New York, Los Angeles or Honolulu. If you are trying to stick to a preferred travel budget, regardless of how much you plan to spend, the cost of dining in French Polynesia should be considered in your travel and vacation planning.
Which islands to visit and how many islands you should visit depends a lot on how long you plan to stay in French Polynesia.We typically advise clients to spend at least 3 nights on each island in their itinerary (except possibly the Island of Tahiti). Spending less than 3 nights tends to make travelers feel too rushed. After all, you are going there to at least try to relax.
The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort is absolutely incredible. There are no words to describe the beauty of Tahiti and the staff there was wonderful. I cannot thank Venture Tahiti enough for helping us book the most incredible experience of our lives!! We plan on bringing our children there very soon!
The spa is beautiful, we had a great couples massage! ...the excursions are amazing & the best snorkeling channel around! Its worth every penny you spend and an experience of a life time! The sunsets are the best you will ever see! We used VENTURE TAHITI in Boca Raton, Florida to book our trip and it went off without a hitch. They did an excellent job and I highly recommend them!
