We take bookings from several Walking Holiday companies, and they way it works is they organise the route and all accommodation for guests plus do bag transfers. So when guests leave here walking they leave their suitcases and someone will come and pick them up during they day and take them to the guests next B&B/hotel.
This year has been bizare, out of 40-50 bookings I can count on one hand the number of people that both arrived and left on foot. They either use a taxi, wait for the bus or cadge a lift with the bags transfer man.
What's the point of paying for a walking holiday if you're going to bus/taxi everywhere en-route.
One couple even arrived here at 10.15 last week with the bag transfer man, the people in their room the night before hadn't even checked out. When DH told them check-in is 16:00 they said "Oh we'll go for a nice walk then" Eh?

Strange. But of course, their money, their holiday. Just glad you got to host them for a night!
