Top Questions

Does Inspiration cost more than other Christian travel agencies?

Every event we manage is customized to the selections of our ministry partners; costs are determined by their preferences. However, our extensive network of in-country providers and reputable history sometimes give us a competitive edge in our costs, which we keep competitive so your group can travel affordably.

Absolutely! We offer tailored itineraries for groups, allowing you to focus on specific sites or themes that resonate with your congregation. Together, we'll create a truly unique experience. Would you like to see an example? Contact us today and we’ll send you a free sample itinerary.


As the leader of my church group, can I travel for free?

Yes, as a church group leader, you are eligible to travel for free. This is our way of thanking you for organizing and leading the group! The specific terms and conditions may vary, so please contact us ASAP for detailed information and options for your group.


Will there be places where I can teach?

Yes, depending on the destination you choose, we can ensure that there is a private space for you to teach. If you are traveling to Israel, there are sacred settings available to teach in, including the Garden of Gethsemane and while sailing on the Sea of Galilee.


Will I have to guide and talk about all the sites, or will you provide a guide?

We provide knowledgeable, expert local guides who will lead you through the sites, sharing profound insights into their historical and spiritual significance while still giving you the space to lead your community the exact way you envision. Our guides handle the details so you can focus on teaching and leading your group spiritually. We're here to support your ministry goals.


How much advance notice is needed to organize a group travel experience?

We recommend booking 12 – 15 months in advance to ensure availability and ideal arrangements, especially for travel experiences outside the U.S. This gives us ample time to arrange accommodations, activities and other logistics. However, we do occasionally accommodate shorter timelines, depending on your church group's destination and size.
