When you're ready to book and confirm your trip to South America. Send us an email or

If your passport is expired, or about to expire, can you make a reservation?

The answer is "Yes and No."
Yes, we can schedule and reserve our guides, drivers, horses, bikes and equipment.
No, we cannot reserve flights, train service or Machu Picchu entry without a valid passport.
If you have an expired passport or passport about to expire, we can use it to get your Inca Trail permits, AS LONG AS YOU TRAVEL WITH BOTH THE NEW AND THE OLD PASSPORTS.  IF WE USE THE OLD PASSPORT THAT'S ABOUT TO EXPIRE, THAT'S THE ONE YOU MUST SHOW AT THE CHECKPOINT TO ENTER THE HIKE.  NO EXCEPTIONS.  Please let us know at time of booking.

If you have travel companions or are alone, we can sometimes make hotel reservations in your name and follow up later with passport info. But hotels require the passport info to determine if you should pay the hefty hotel tax imposed on Peruvian citizens by their government. Eventually, one way or the other, they have to have your valid passport info.

Travel documents:

  • For each participant, include full name, exactly as it's written on the passport.
  • Passport expiration date
